The Hoot Owl
As we all return on Tuesday, September 8, we look forward to a great year full of happy, healthy students. In order to help keep us all safe, here are a few reminders:
*If your child is sick, please do not send them to school (see chart below)
*3rd and 4th graders are required to wear masks at school
*PK - 2nd graders are strongly encouraged to wear masks while in the classroom, however, must wear one in common areas like the bus, the hallway and the restroom.
*Lanyards are a great idea to hang masks from so that students do not lose their mask
*Label masks, lunch kits, jackets, etc so that we can get them returned to the owner if misplaced
REMINDERS UPON RETURN
*If your child has a change of transportation, please make sure and send a note to the teacher. In the event of an emergency, you can call the front office and request the change.
*Send your child with a water bottle daily. We have a touchless refillable station now so students can use the same water bottle all day.
*Lunches need to come to school with children daily. We will not be accepting drop offs in the front office at this time. If a child forgets his/her lunch, they will be allowed to purchase from the cafeteria.
*Car rider - remember that for both morning and afternoon car rider, parents will not be allowed to walk up to the front door. You must remain in the line and drop off at the door.
*Car rider afternoon - Please make sure you are entering the car rider line from Oak Ridge School Road (if traveling north on the feeder road). We will begin blocking off the driveway on Tuesday, September 8.
NOTES FROM THE NURSE
The good news this year is if you child is not feeling well and stays home, they can still participate in a virtual lesson either via SeeSaw or Canvas.
