Foussat Weekly Happenings

Friday, September17, 2021

Dear Families,

Good Evening Foussat Families,

As we continue to be impacted by the Covid pandemic, you can help keep your students safe by reminding them to wash their hands frequently throughout the day. It's also important to remind them to not share any food or drinks with other students. We encourage students to bring refillable water bottles which they can refill throughout the day at the water filling stations. Some news and updates for the week:

  • It would help if you could label students' jackets, lunch boxes and water bottles. We have a lot of clothing in our lost and found that we don't know who it belongs to!
  • Our 1st to 5th grade students are finishing up their iReady testing today. iReady is an online program that identifies students' reading and math levels and is used by our teachers to provide students with targeted instruction.
  • If you have not already done, please consider purchasing the insurance that is being offered by the district for students' devices. It is only $26.00 a year and covers any damage that might occur to the device.
  • We have a new security system in the office that we are now using to check students out. As part of the process if you are picking up early, you will need to show your driver's license to verify your identity.
  • If you are going to drop off or pick up a student and are planning on leaving your car, make sure you park your car in a parking space. When a car is left unattended it stops the flow of traffic.
  • We are pleased to announce that beginning October 18th, 2021, our TK students will now have the opportunity to attend school on a modified schedule. They will have the same school hours as kinder students, 8:55 to 2:50.
  • Please consider joining our School Site Council this year. I sent a Google survey yesterday to all parents, If you are interested in serving make sure to fill out the survey before Wednesday!

That's all for now, have a great weekend, stay safe and don't forget to spend some time reading as a family and tell your children how much you love and appreciate them.
