Mrs. Walters' News

Dear Bushnell Elementary Families,

We are in need of extra masks for when they break or are lost. If you like to sew or know a source that would like to donate some, we'd gladly accept them!

Attention virtual families: A survey was emailed two weeks ago about your learning plans for the 2nd trimester. Please complete this survey as soon as possible so we can start planning for any students that plan to return to face-to-face learning. If you need access to this survey please email Erin Walters at ewalters@lowellschools.com. This survey is due TODAY.

Attention current face to face families: If your family is considering changing to virtual school for the second trimester, you must contact your school principal before the end of the day TODAY.

Thank you to your generous donations for our fundraiser! If you would still like to donate, you are more than welcome to! As of today we have over $5000 for which we are really grateful for! Today we had a pajama day celebration in honor of the money raised!

Just a reminder that we have a half day of school on October 28. Students will be dismissed at 11:30 that day.

We will be holding our Halloween celebrations on Friday, October 30. Classes will all celebrate a little differently but kids can wear costumes and I can assure you lots of fun will be had. Please- no weapons or gory costumes.

Great news for students and families! The USDA has extended the waiver for free breakfast and lunch for all students through the end of the school year! We still ask that families fill out the free/reduced school lunch application. Although all school lunches are free this year, your benefits will roll over 30 days into the next school year. This information is also used for school funding allocation, and if renewed, potential P-EBD card benefits. You can apply at lunchapp.com.

Also- if you would like to request a box lunch to be sent home with your child next Wednesday on our half day please email ewalters@lowellschools.com and we can provide one.

Have a great weekend everyone!
