Elementary Office Update -10/12

Greetings NC Elementary Families!

I hope this email finds you doing well. The circumstances surrounding our school year make Fall Conferences more important than ever. We look forward to collaborating with EVERY family this year as we partner to support your child's social, emotional, and academic needs.

If you scroll down you will find photo directions for signing up for Elementary Fall Conferences. On the Elementary section of the website, you will see a tab for Fall Conferences. Please select your child(ren)'s teacher(s) and you will be brought into the signup genius. Select a zoom time from the listed slots. As we near the date, Zoom links will be added to the website. They will be created with the waiting room feature so that teachers can have families enter the meeting when it is their time. Conferences are on Wednesday evenings, and therefore families will have devices home with students that they may use to access zoom.

Driftless Virtual Families - Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade families have a signup with Ms. Biggin. Students in K, 1st, and 2nd should watch for an email from Ms. Kelly (k/1) or Ms. Verastegui (2) about a check in meeting this month.

Thank you in advance for your support. We hope to reach our goal of 100% family participation.

Best Regards,

Amanda Killeen

Elementary Principal

Covid 19 Reminders


As the novelty of back to school wears off, we need your help in supporting students to wear their mask correctly in the school building. Please check your child's mask to ensure it fits properly and stays over their nose. Our goal is to keep our doors open to in person learning as long as safely possible. While we know there are a wide range of feelings on mask wearing, in our school building they are required. Please continue to talk with your child(ren) about this mitigation effort in a positive lens . We need your support to be clear of the expectation. During this difficult year, a united school / home team is more important than ever.

*Reminder to wash mask daily

Parents in the Building

Just a reminder that we are limiting visitors in the building. If for some reason you need to be in the building for a meeting etc. - please enter through the elementary office door so you can check in. Thank you for your understanding.

Morning Drop Off / Afternoon Pick Up

At this point in the year, I am encouraging all families to utilize the pick up / drop off lane vs. the cross walk. Reminder that we will begin to take temperatures at 7:50. If you are picking up in the afternoon and wish to park, please wait in the grassy area to the right of the school door. For your child(ren)'s safety, they may not cross in front of the busses in the cross walk without an adult.
