Dear Cardinal Families,

The end of the 1st quarter is quickly approaching (October 16th). As you may recall, students had the option of face-to-face instruction or online instruction at the start of the school year. Those that chose online instruction may return at the start of the 2nd quarter. We are looking forward to having as many of our students back in the classroom as possible and we are already preparing for their return.

*Beginning Monday, October 5th, 4th graders will switch to a "grab and go" breakfast plan, similar to our grade 5-12 students. Fourth graders will go through the breakfast line, choose their breakfast as usual and head to their classroom (across the hall from the cafeteria) to eat it. This plan will allow us the needed space to continue to distance students during breakfast.

*For those students who are currently online and planning to return at the start of the 2nd quarter, please email your child's teacher(s) to request a virtual "meet and greet" session to help with the transition back to the building. Click the link below for their contact information. You will also need to contact our building secretary Gina McElfresh, for bus information or to schedule a time to get your car tag if your child is going to be car rider each day.

Reminder: Fall Break on October 9 & 12- No school for students!

As always, we appreciate your patience and support during these unusual circumstances!

Have a great weekend!

Jennifer Keller, Principal
