Attendance is key for learning, and so is staying healthy!
Covid-19 has changed the way we do many things, and one of those is attendance. While attendance is key for learning, it is even more important that we stay healthy. Tri-County R-7 has made some changes to attendance policies that will allow for students to remain at home if they aren't feeling well.
If your student has any symptoms of sickness, and/or a fever, they should stay home. If you are awaiting Covid test results for someone in your home, it is best if all students stay at home also.Parents can write a note to excuse sick days. Students should be fever-free, without medication, for 48 hours to return to school.
Additionally, we have canceled the perfect attendance award.
A safe, healthy year is a high priority this year!
AMI - Alternative Method of Instruction
1) For many students (PreK - 2nd grade) that is a binder of worksheets with directions of which pages to do, based on what days we are out of school.
2) For students grades 3rd & 4th who have internet access, you will access your lessons online via Google Classroom. Your student(s) has a school email and will go to:
https://classroom.google.com/ to find their classes and assignments.
If a student in grades 3rd & 4th do NOT have internet access, a binder was sent home that has assignments.
Ways to receive communication with the school and/or teacher in case of a shut down:
Tri-County R-7 page is for all students & families
Preschool page is for preschooler parents
Kindergarten page is for kindergarten parents
First grade page is for first grade parents
Second grade page is for second grade parents
Staff Email : http://www.trico.k12.mo.us/staff-contacts
Remember: students must complete their AMI work to count for attendance for the days we are doing at-home learning. IF you have a binder, keep it in a safe place!

We also welcome Mackenzie Widner to the elementary staff this year. She is a para and will work closely with Mrs. Deb LaFerney.
2020-2021 CLASSROOM TREATS: Due to Covid-19 any classroom treats sent to school must be prepackaged or from a store bakery.
2020-2021 When we work together, our students win!
A new school year has begun. It is always fun to see the students again, but this year even more so! We are settling into a routine and getting down to the business of learning. We have assessed our student's learning to see what areas they might need extra support and we reviewed the expectations of Tri-County R-7.
Our students are practicing how to be respectful, responsible, and safe.
