Library Books...to be returned
All library books are due back to the library, and we are down to just 9 more books that need to be returned!!! If your library book is lost or damaged, please send exact cash or a check payable to "Coolidge School" to pay for it. The cost will be printed on overdue notices that Mrs. Messina has provided to your child's teacher. Thank you for returning your library books, so we can get them packed up to move to our new library at West Willow! Thanks so much! We have several classrooms who have returned all of their books! Congrats to Mr. Wibe, Mr. Lang, Mrs. Morningstar, Mrs. Bergert, Ms Blocker, Mrs. Christoffersen, Ms Lodge, Mr. Hackenmiller, Mrs. Carney, Mrs. Russ and Mrs. Weller's classes for having all their books back!!! Let's see if we can get all classrooms on this list this week!

Kindergarten/Preschool/Alternative Kindergarten Registration
See the flyers: Preschool/Kindergarten/Alternative Kindergarten--English
We appreciate you contacting the Nurse (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or Mr. O'Connell (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have been exposed or have tested positive for the virus while on break. This just keeps us informed and also helps to keep everyone healthy in return from break.
Newly released last week
Governor Kim Reynolds signed a bill that prohibits any school district from requiring masks to be worn by staff or students. We have discussed on morning announcements that it is a personal choice to wear a mask or not...and we need to be respectful no matter what the choice is. Masks will continue to be worn on school buses as they are public transportation, and that is a national mandate. Additionally, mitigation strategies remain for all school athletics and activities.
Arrival and Dismissal
There is no parking on Atwood on the west side of the school for the bus lane.
Thanks again for your continued patience and support to keep ALL of our children safe at arrival and dismissal.
