From the Directors
Today kicks off teacher/staff appreciation week. Please take a few minutes to send your child's teachers a special note of appreciation. A simple note or act of appreciation means so much. We appreciate Chatfield teachers and the wonderful work they do to make learning meaningful for Chatfield children.
Upcoming P.I.E. Meeting - Please Come!
We will have a Partners in Education meeting on Thursday, May 13 at 7pm via Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed out to parents prior to the meeting. Please try to attend. We have many topics to cover including this Fall's Bike Rodeo fundraiser, this summer's Shakespeare in the Park, and updates on the school and plans for next school year.

Parking Lot Safety Reminders
1. For those that drop off or pick up on the north/east side of the building, please pull all the way forward to the middle school door steps when picking up and dropping off. This will allow more people to pick up and drop off at a time.
2. If you are dropping off your child and you need to get out of your car to help your child out, please do not stay in the drop off line, park your car in a spot and help your child out of the car. This will prevent the drop off line from backing up.
3. As a reminder, if you are walking up to where students or staff are waiting you MUST WEAR A MASK, even if you are remaining outside.
4. Please drive slowly and carefully in the parking lots. Safety must be everyone's first priority.
Olympics is on the Schedule!
All participants, volunteers, and guests will be required to wear masks while on school grounds. We will have a picnic lunch for all, but not the traditional Olympic buffet. Olympic events/activities will be adjusted to plan for social distancing and santizing of equipment.
