Return to Learn: Blended Experience

We are working hard to make sure the building is ready for students (1st graders) to return for in-person instruction. As we want everyone to feel safe and understand updated procedures, we will be pushing out videos and other communication for what you can expect as we bring students back. For example, grade levels will enter through different doors and we will show what that process looks like for a car-rider or a busser. Students will also be in zones throughout the building to avoid travel from other grades as much as possible. Please understand that this will take some adjusting, but we have resilient students and they will adjust to it!

Happy Halloween!

With Halloween next week, we won't be able to celebrate as we have traditionally done with our parade and class parties, but we still wanted our Freeman community to have a chance to celebrate together for those interested. During the afternoon meeting (11am Zoom time) we invite you to all join Zoom for a Spooky Sing-a-Long with Ms. Randolph followed by a read aloud with Ms. Dvorak and Mrs. Righter. If you have multiple families in the home, please log in using one device so we have enough space for everyone to join!

Songs to be sung and their lyrics can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pjSgsdoAgcECbS2SIGKh5l386yfaRxQnoOCG5lbLRoc/edit?usp=sharing
