Welcome back!

The following is an email that was sent to the parent and guardians primary emails. If you did not receive the email Friday, please let us know so we can make sure we have the correct email in the system.

Welcome back to a new school year. I am the new Assistant Principal for Newberry and am so excited to meet all of your students! I am going to be sharing a number of links to helpful information regarding the unique situations we are facing this school year. I apologize for the lengthy email, but there is a lot of important information that I am sure you are eager to learn.

Here is the Parent, Educator, and External Partner Guide. In this guide you will find all of the answers to your questions regarding health protocols, academics and attendance. For each topic there is a section of what this means for parents and for the educators so you can see both perspectives and teachers and parents have the same information. You can find more information about school's opening on this website: www.cps.edu/b2s

For entry, all students will line up on the playground. Please do not drop your student off before 7:25 as supervision will be limited until that time. Due to current health & safety protocols, parents and guardians will NOT be allowed to walk their students to the classroom. If you have business that needs to be taken care of, please come to the main office door to be let in. The room numbers for the students will be painted on the ground and the teachers will be there to meet them with a sign to help them find the correct space. Ms. Foley and I will also be out there with additional staff to help you and your students find your way. Here is a map of the playground to help you know where your student's spot is before arriving. You can also find this information along with other routines and structures of Newberry in the Parent and Student Handbook.

We are very excited to be starting a new ELA curriculum this year that has been provided by CPS. It is a wonderful curriculum that was created with our students in mind and provides wonderful learning experiences through rich text at all levels. You can see more information in this Welcome to Skyline flyer and this letter to parents.

We are ready to begin this year of learning with your young leaders!
