Message from the Principal

Dear Yellowjacket Families,


The school year has gotten off to a great start! Students and staff are loving our new classrooms with doors and our new furniture. Many of the students have shared they love the new flexible seating options we have.


This year, you will receive any Covid notification letters by class instead of the whole school. If you want to keep up with the numbers for the entire school and/or the district, you can check the district DASHBOARD.


The health and safety of our students and staff is a top priority. Please see the reminders below from our school nurse regarding Covid protocols.


Also, we are making an adjustment to our Open House next week. We will have a come-and-go event at staggered times. The presentation/content for the event will be virtual. Please see below for more information.


Thank you for your continued support!


Best regards,


Ms. Midkiff, Principal

Open House will be an optional come-and-go event this year where you can see your child's classroom, see the common areas of the school and briefly meet your child's teacher. We will not have a sit-down presentation. The content of the open house presentation will be emailed to parents as a virtual presentation so all parents will have the open house information whether they choose to attend in person or not.


Open House Times (by child's last name)


A-F 5:30 - 6:00pm

G-M 6:15 - 6:45pm

N-Z 7:00 - 7:30pm


We kindly ask that you help us out by following these health and safety protocols:


  • Wear a mask (strongly encouraged)
  • Sanitize your hands when entering the building/classroom (sanitizing stations located throughout the building)
  • Maintain social distance between your family and other families
  • Keep the flow of traffic moving
  • Avoid handshakes/hugs (We are excited to see you and happily accept air hugs and elbow bumps!)



In addition to visiting your child's classroom, you are invited to stop by the following booths in the cafeteria:


  • PTO
  • TItle I
  • Counselors
  • Scouts


Parking


We are excited about our new parking lot, however, not all areas have been stripped. Please be cautious and courteous to other families who are just as excited to meet their child's teacher when you are selecting your parking spot. We want to make sure families are able to exit safely in order for the next group to be able to join us. Please do not block other cars.

Tardy- Don't be late!

Announcements begin at 8:35am each day and school starts promptly at 8:40am. If you arrive after 8:40am, your child is tardy. You will need to park and come into the front office to sign in.
