Principal Post

Congratulations to fifth grader Jordan (Jac) Catapano for receiving this year's American Character Youth Award. Typically, this award would be presented during the evening at the CHARACTER COUNTS! Celebration event held at Old Town Park, but this year things are different and Jac will receive his certificate when he returns to In-Person learning next week. Jac was chosen from a great group of fifth grade nominees.


Students will not be in attendance on Friday, October 9th for Teacher's Institute Day or on Monday, October 12th as we observe Christopher Columbus Day.


We are looking forward to the return of our fourth and fifth grade students next week. Students in Group B will return on Tuesday, October 13th and students in Group A will return on Thursday, October 15th.


Parents, please remember to self/health certify your child(ren) each day they attend school for In-Person learning. Parents will receive an email from Raptor with a link to complete a health screener that ensures the students entering the building are healthy and well. Students will also need to wear their green bracelet each day they are In-Person learning. This bracelet signifies the student has completed the screener and is healthy and well is able to enter the building. Thanks in advance for your assistance with this new procedure. Fourth and fifth grade students will receive their bracelet next week.

Parent / Guardian Referral

I know that this is a very stressful time for many of our students and families. I want you to know that I am here to provide social and emotional support for your child. Below is an explanation of why and how a referral for social work services can be made for your child.

It is not safe to walk between cars and in front of oncoming traffic

For the safety of our parents and students, we ask that you do not park your car and walk your child through the parking lot to the door. It is not safe. There are two lanes of traffic; one that stops to drop/pick up students and the other a passing lane. It is hard to see parents and students walking between cars when someone is driving in the passing lane. We ask that you stay in your car and use the drop off line. And as always pull all the way up to the DuJardin sign on Euclid.
