Castle Rock Communiqué

We love our Knights!

October 4, 2020 (Week Nine)

Hello Castle Rock Families!

A big thank you to so many of you who participated in parent conferences for students in Grades TK, 3 and 4 this past week! We thank you for your partnership in helping us to support your child's learning, and hope you found the time valuable. Our remaining grade levels will conference during the first week of November. In the meantime, please keep us posted about how we can assist you.

Our Education Fundraiser hosted by our Community Club continues, and we are grateful to so many of you who have already donated. Please help us reach our goals! As you might imagine, responding to the pandemic has challenged us, and we will need as much assistance as we can garner moving forward. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Enrollment for District of Choice students starts this coming week. If you have a friend or family member who lives outside of our district boundaries but it interested in sending their child to our wonderful schools, please share the information below with them. Thank you!

Have a wonderful week!

ps - Don't miss "Twin Day" dress up day this coming Friday! It is always a favorite!

Student Item Pickups

Hello parents! As you are contacted by your child's teacher to come to school to pick up instructional materials, please remember to take a health self assessment by answering the following three questions:

1. Are you experiencing any symptoms such as current or recent fever (100.4° or higher), chills, cough, shortness of breath or respiratory illness, sudden lack of taste or smell, or sudden onset of unexplained gastrointestinal illness?

2. Have you been in close contact** with any person who has been infected with COVID-19 within the last 14 day?

3. Have you or anyone living with you been out of the country within the last 14 days?

**CLOSE CONTACT is defined as: Being within approximately 6 feet of a COVID-19 case for 10 minutes or more; close contact can occur when having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (being coughed on).

If you answer YES to any of these questions, please designate someone else to come pick up your child's materials. We appreciate your efforts to keep us all safe during these uncertain times.
