Bobcat Bulletin

Week of March 22nd

Principal Petrick Message

Hello Bobcat Families,


We are so excited to get to see some of our K - 2 Bobcats return to school in person on Monday March 29th! For students returning in person, they will want to make sure their Chromebook is fully charged the night before. For students who don't have a Chromebook, one will be provided to them the first day back. Although not encouraged, because they may not be able to be supported on our network, students may bring a personal laptop. If a personal laptop doesn't work we will make sure the student is provided a Chromebook.


Students in grades 3-6 will remain in CDL the week of March 29th. However, our 3-6 grade teachers will need their Transition Days on March 31, April 1 and 2 in order to prepare their classrooms and complete trainings for the start of 3-6 grade Hybrid on April 5th. Expect to get an email from your 3-6 teacher regarding their Hybrid schedule on April 2nd.


Finally, another impact that the switch to Hybrid will cause will be a change to many small groups. Although CDL is imperfect for students and teachers (and many parents too!) it has allowed us to provide more small group time than ever before. This was possible because our Instructional Assistants had no supervision duty at school. With Hybrid bringing students back to school, we will have less time for small groups because we will have to allocate more I.A. time to supervise students as well as meeting the safety guideline demands of cohorting. Small groups won't go away entirely, but they will become less frequent.


Thanks for reading this long message! Lots of important information below - including the Bobcat Goes To School Video!


Happy Spring Break!


Mr. Petrick

Thank you Mrs. Laman

Mrs. Laman has announced that she is moving on from Farmington View following this school year to pursue other interests. Mrs. Laman, a former FVES student, has been a great contributor to FVES as a 5th grade teacher and building leader in STEM. It was a tough decision for her, as her heart has and always will be with the school where she has spent so much of time and energy. Please join us in thanking Mrs. Laman for her contributions and wishing her well on the next chapter of her life.

Hybrid Meal Information

Breakfast and Lunches are free to all students through the remainder of the school year. For students attending in person, they will be able to pick up a breakfast on their way to class. Lunches will be provided at lunch time but students may bring lunches from home as well. There will also be the opportunity for students to pick up meal packs on the afternoon's before a CDL day. Each student will be offered this opportunity. Meal packs will be placed in back packs for students to bring home.


For students in CDL, meals are also free through the end of the year. However, due to current bussing contraints, the meal packs will be available for pick up at FVES on Friday's between 12p.m. and 2p.m. on the northside of the building. Families will be able to pick up breakfast and lunches for the entire next week. Orders are due every Friday by 8a.m.. to be counted for pick up the next week on Friday. Use the meal pack form to place an order each week. For questions on meals - please call our main office.

Plan for sick child in Hybrid?

If your student plans on returning in person for hybrid, it will be good to have a plan in place in case they show signs of illness and need to be sent home. Students that show signs of illness in the morning, should stay at home and participate remotely via CDL as they are able.
