Principal's Message

This message is a repeat of the School Messenger notice from Thursday, November 12th.



Dear Trumbauersville Families,


As was referenced in Dr. Harner’s recent blog, QCSD is instituting a Yellow Alert message to notify our school community if we have a significant risk of not having enough adults present to safely open the school for students. IF we need to send this message, you will receive the message the night before a potential school closure via our School Messenger system. The alert would come as a phone call, an email, and a text. Think of the Yellow Alert like a winter storm warning or another weather alert to be prepared for possible closure.


After that alert, we will review our absence data again in the following morning and will consult with Dr. Harner. If we cannot open our school safely, you will be notified by 7:30 a.m. for our elementary school (7:00 a.m. for the SGC and Strayer, and 6:15 a.m. for the high school.) If we would have to be closed, we would operate virtually for the day. Please note that the notification/closure would apply only to that individual school building; all other buildings would operate normally.

We will do our best and exhaust all strategies to avoid having to close our school for lack of adequate staffing. However, the Yellow Alert message will be our system that provides you with advance notice, as soon as we can.


Additionally, if your child(ren) ride the bus, I am asking you to review appropriate bus behavior with your child(ren); specifically being in their assigned seat. We have received some reports that students are not staying in their assigned bus seats and this presents a significant health and safety issue if we need to conduct contact tracing of students on a school bus. If students are purposefully moving seats - or taking other action that goes against appropriate bus behavior - they could lose the opportunity to ride the school bus to and from school. Please review this information with your child.

Sincerely,


-Adam

Bucks County Free Library- Virtual Library Card Drive Nov 13-Nov 22nd

We love getting library cards into the hands of elementary students. While things may be slightly different this year, the library is still working to make the library an accessible place for children and their families. To meet that goal, Bucks County Free Library is hosting an online Library Card Registration Drive.

After the 22nd, Mrs. Haslett will pick up all of library cards and distribute them to your child(ren).

Genre in the Spotlight for November - Historical Fiction

Each month our school shines the spotlight on a different reading genre. November is Historical Fiction. When you are reading together at home, consider reading some historical fiction.


Below are some photos of some of the books on display in our school lobby. Also, when you and your children are reading the genre of the month, take a moment to fill out the Morning Announcement Submission and have students deposit it in the yellow box by our lobby display. Each Friday, we read some student submissions over the morning announcements. It is a fun way to share our reading with each other!
