March 27, 2021
We recently mailed families a packet with information about Sycamore's process for dropping-off and picking-up students during in-person learning. Though there may be changes in the timing of our schedules, we expect our processes to remain the same. Please read that mailing carefully as you begin to plan for transporting your child to and from school. For more information on our Phase 2 plans, review our school's Phase 2 Hybrid Handbook on our school's website or listen to a recording of the parent information night held on March 20.

I want to encourage you to talk with your children about your family's plans for the reopening. Students and teachers will continue to discuss plans in class this week. As you have questions about the plan, please contact us. Stay tuned to emails and newsletters. I'll be sharing more information as we have it.
Thank you for your ongoing support.

BLAST-After School Program
Over the coming days, enrolled families will learn more about their student's BLAST (after school) program. Spring enrollment in the BLAST program will be limited due to requirements for social distancing, so BLAST staffing will also be limited. Suzan Ahmed, our school's BLAST supervisor will be on campus daily, but Ce Ce Hinshaw, a beloved Sycamore BLAST team member, will not be on our campus this spring. She will be needed on another campus. Here's a message from Ce Ce:
"I wish you all the very best of luck as we all face this new challenge in our lives serving our families, and I will see you in September !!
Love, Cecile "Ce Ce" Hinshaw👍❤️"
