MCES WEEKLY TOP FIVE FOR PARENTS

UPDATES AND REMINDERS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 10

A MESSAGE FROM THE ADMINISTRATION TEAM

Greeting Montclair Families,


We know that this last year has been challenging and complex, but we are nearing the end of the school year. The staff at Montclair genuinely appreciate the involvement of our families. As we mentioned every week on the Top Five, we would like to inform you and remind you of some upcoming events.


The Administration Team would like to thank our Remote and Face to Face families for your diligence with our drop-off this morning. We know that filling out the Symptom Screener can be tedious, but we thank you for completing them as needed. Please remember that they will need to be completed every day a student arrives on campus.


Next, Remote students will need to begin returning their devices starting Monday, May 24th through the 27th from 7:00 AM- 4:30 PM. Students will also need to return all cords, hotspot devices, and Wit & Wisdom Books. Parents may begin returning their child's Wit and Wisdom books Monday-Friday from 9:00-2:00. If your child is a car rider, you're welcome to bring materials at drop-off or pick-up. Teachers will begin collecting and sanitizing Face to Face students' devices on Thursday, May 20th.


Lastly, due to Covid 19 protocols, all End-of-the Year celebrations will be Virtual. Per CCS-food WILL NOT be provided, and the audience is limited to students in the F2F class and the teacher. Parents and other visitors may view virtually ONLY. Classroom teachers will create a WebEx link invite for families. Individual teachers will share invite with families via Class Dojo. The Virtual Celebration schedule will be as followed:
