Family Newsletter June 3, 2021

StepUP Families

Welcome to June! This time of year always gets a little busy with ensuring that we have structure and content in place, while also trying to make sure that we are wrapping up and getting everyone ready to launch into summer.

I want to take a moment to remind students and families that we will need ALL chromebooks and hotspots returned before we leave for the year. If your student is not using their devices, please return them as soon as possible. If they are still using them, please plan on sending it with them to school on Thursday, June 17th so that we can check them in. Otherwise, you are able to drop off devices on June 18th from 9am to 2pm. If we do not receive the device prior to 2pm on June 18th, then it will be billed to your student. Please reach out to us with any questions and/or concerns.

As we close out this school year, I cannot thank you enough for your partnership and patience as we have navigated this unprecedented school year. Please continue to reach out if you need anything, we are here to serve you and your students.

Thank you,

Karen Mitchell
