School Newsletter for September 28, 2020

Dear Anne Wien Elementary Families,

We hope you all were able to enjoy the fabulous weather over your student's 4-day weekend. With the golden leaves during the day and the aurora borealis making appearances at night, fall is always a wonderful time to be outside here in the Interior.

We're happy to have a full week of school again with our students. We'll continue to keep you updated regarding students returning to the school building. The School Board's resolution to have students return in person next Monday, October 5, if our community is in the Yellow Operational Zone (which means less than ten COVID-19 cases being reported a day) now seems unlikely since our daily case count continues to average 18 cases/day. We'll keep you updated as soon as we have official word on students returning.

Be sure to participate in PTA's First Friday Family Photo Challenge this week and we can't wait to see all you next week for Family Wellness Week here at Anne Wien!
