Welcome Back to School!
We are so excited to welcome you back on Monday, Aug. 31. Here is a quick video to give you a peek inside as we all get ready to be together again!
More videos will be on our Information & Resource Pages
We have new routines for children coming by car and by bus. Please review our Re-Entry Plan on our website. There are also some videos to help you visualize what it will look like. We appreciate your patience as we all adjust to the new structures. If you are dropping off students, staff will be ready at 8:50, please do not let your child get out of the car if an adult is not present. Bus routes are different and have been emailed to those requesting bus transportation.
In order for things to go as smoothly as possible, please make sure your child comes to school with a mask. If you need one, please let us know. We have extra cloth facemasks for children in two different sizes. We are able to wash school provided masks. We will collect them from children at the end of the day and provide them with a clean one as part of our dismissal routine. If you prefer that your child not do this, please let the classroom teacher know.
If you have not completed the online portion of registration, please do so tonight. Part of that homework is our acceptable use policy. Children cannot use internet services at school without this being signed. If you have questions, please call us in the morning.
Just a reminder that each morning we ask you to screen your child using the screener sent home in the packet. It can also be found on our website. This includes taking their temperature. I recommend that you log the temperature at home daily so that you can monitor if there are any changes.
We are here for your children and you. Our staff have put a lot of work into preparing to open our doors to our students. We know there will be some bumps in this road, we appreciate any feedback you have for us and your collaboration as we make this the best year it can be.
