Dear Parents,


As you are aware, Governor Northam has closed all Virginia schools for 2 weeks in an attempt to contain COVID-19.


In your child’s backpack on Friday, the kindergarten unit sent home Volume 2 of the Math Program. Many of these units have been taught, however, the measurement unit and addition/subtraction units are included. Please assist your child in reviewing and understanding these units.


In addition to the Math Volume, Kindergarten also sent home the next 3 SFA reading books.

  • Week 2- Read Tubb the Cub and do the same activities as the previous week.
  • In the event of a 3rd week- Read The Fin in the Water and do the same activities as the previous weeks.
