Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends,

I hope everyone is staying busy during these eLearning days. Please make sure your children are keeping up on all of their assignments. If you have any questions, please have your children email their teachers. They are available between 9:00am and 3:00pm, on eLearning days, for you to contact if you need assistance. Always keep reading and stay warm!!!

***Once school is back in session, please encourage your children to talk to their teachers about any concerns they may have had with their assignments. We want to make sure they have had an opportunity to ask questions about assignments with which they are having difficulty.

~ Mrs. Proskey

Weather Alerts and Notifications/ Notifying the Office when your Child is Sick

  • As the weather starts to really get chilly and students are beginning to catch the flu bug, there are a few things that we need you to remember:
  • --Please make sure that your child leaves the house appropriately dressed for the weather. We still go outside for recess even when it is pretty chilly outside.
  • --Do not drop your children off at the front door prior to 7:30. The doors do not get unlocked until the assistant gets there at 7:30.
  • --If the weather looks like it may be too treacherous for school, please check WNDU, WSBT, or FOX22 for closings or school delays. WROI, WKVI and WXVI will also be informed of closings and delays. You may also check Culver Elementary's Facebook Page. www.facebook.com/culver.elementary.school (go to the link on this page and "like" our page).
  • --If your child is absent please call Yvonne Shepherd at 574-842-3389 or email her at shepherd@culver.k12.in.us.
  • --Also remember if your child has a fever, they have to be 24 hours fever free before they come back to school. You never know when that fever may spike back up!
