This Week at Windsor 5.7.2021

Teachers make a difference at any distance...

Windsor Families,

We can't thank you all enough for the love that we felt this week for teacher appreciation week, from the treats and meals in the lounge to the individualized celebrations for each teacher, it was a wonderful week here at Windsor!

5th Grade Families: Please be on the lookout next week for a lot of information coming out regarding end of school year happenings for our 5th graders!

Register for the 2021-22 School Year: Please remember to register your children for the upcoming school year. Registration is currently live online at New residency documents are required if there is a change of address for current students. New students attending next August, must also provide proof of residency.

Zooming: Just to clarify, we will not approve zooming into classrooms for students/siblings until we receive a positive Covid test or our nurse has recommended quarantine due to the close contact of a positive Covid case. Reminder, it may take up to one school day for the teachers to set up technology and have materials ready for pick up in the vestibule. Many of our classrooms do not have remote students.

Drop and Go: Just a reminder to please pull up as far as possible on Windsor Drive before and after school, this allows for more cars to enter Windsor Drive and keeps the intersection clear. Also, please remember to keep pets at home or in your car.

From our Front Office:

- We are having a lot of students coming in asking for a new mask, if you could please send an extra mask in your child's backpack that would be fantastic!

- If you are planning to move prior to the end of the school year or over the summer, please let the office know. Parents will need to sign a Release of Records form, available in the Windsor office and turn in all tech devices before the District can release student records to the new school district

- If students will be leaving before the official last day of school, June 11, please let the office know.

- Missing student items currently in the Lost and Found must be picked up by Friday, June 4. After that date, the items left will be donated.

Happy Mother's Day to all of the Moms!

OK Dads, do you need a quick gift for Mom on Sunday? I've got you covered! Check out this beautiful family craft your kids could make for mom - or maybe it's a fun activity to do together to make Mother's Day memorable! You can find all the information about it HERE. This could also be a great rainy day activity for spring and summer. Happy Mother's Day to all the important women in all our lives! We are lucky to have you! Have a great weekend!

Notes from the Health Office...

Hi Parents!

We are seeing an uptick in illness and seasonal allergies. These health issues often have the same symptoms of COVID. If your child has symptoms of COVID they can be tested in our COVID 19 testing clinic free of charge at Thomas Middle School from 3-4:30 every school day! You must make an appointment for your child (only for students in district #25 that have symptoms).

Here is the link:

Please remember to keep your child home from school and any siblings that have any COVID symptoms and contact me (your school nurse).

Thank you again for partnering with us to continue to keep Windsor School a safe place for everyone!

Important Tech Tip:

Please remind your students that they should power down their Chromebooks at least once a day and maybe at lunchtime as well. That will help the "glitchiness" many are experiencing.

iPads should also be rebooted occasionally to prevent connectivity issues. Instructions are below.

To turn off your Chromebook completely, try one of these options:

  • At the bottom right, select the time. Select Power .
  • At the bottom right, select the time. Select Sign out Shut down.
  • Press and hold the Power key for 3 seconds.
  • Press and hold the Power button until you see a menu to Power off or Sign out

To Power Down Your iPad:

  • Press and hold the On/Off/Sleep button at the upper-right corner of the iPad. Slide the bar to Power off.
