Section School Newsletter
I am pleased to welcome you back to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Section this year, and welcome back all of our returning families as well. I am honored to be your principal.
I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities while enjoying the wonderful sunshine. How quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to preparing for the start of school. This is always one of my favorite times of the year! I love the excitement of beginning a new school year. It is truly thrilling to be part of a team comprised of teachers, staff, parents and students who together work to achieve great things.
Although this year looks different than any other year, we are dedicated to providing your child(ren) a memorable, interactive, and engaging learning experience.
To my fellow HAWKS, Welcome Back...Let's Make it a GREAT Year!
Morning Transportation Update
Students will be assigned a seat on the bus. Seats will be marked on the first day of school as students board the bus. For your reference, bus seating charts are posted in a window at Section under the vestibule. Students will be expected to wear a mask as they board each day and wear the mask for the duration of the route until further notice.
Students will not be allowed to ride a bus other than their
regularly assigned bus until further notice. Please plan accordingly.
End of Day Staggered Release

Pick Up and Drop Off Updates
As you know COVID-19 has changed the way the school office will function this year. Here is a reminder for how the pick up/drop off of students and/or their items will be handled.
Pick-up/drop-off of student items
(i.e. water bottles, forgotten homework, winter weather gear, etc...)
When entering the vestibule there will be a table located outside the office door where you will leave the items in a bag labeled with your students name and class code. Once you exit the building a member of the office will retrieve the bag and take it to your student.
(bringing in late, picking up early, returning from an appointment)
When dropping-off/picking-up your student at school, you will enter the vestibule and sign your student in or out as needed. The sign in/out sheet will be on a table in the vestibule located outside the office door. Only your student will enter into the office and then head to their classroom.
Exceptions to the above procedures apply when the parent/guardian needs to touch base with the health room or deliver medications. In those instances, the parent/guardian can sign in their student and enter the office with their student to connect with our health room regarding restrictions and/or medications, etc...
