The Summit SPARK

FEBRUARY 2021

February 2021

February is:

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

AMERICAN HEART HEALTH MONTH


Dear Summit Road STEM Families,


It's hard to believe we are a month into 2021. Hybrid Learning is back in full swing at Summit and we couldn't be happier to see the students smiling faces as they enter the building and classrooms. We are still practicing social distancing and making sure we wash our hands regularly. Students are expected to wear a mask all day with scheduled maks breaks at the teacher's discretion. Please keep in mind that we will have outdoor recess as long as the temperature is at least 25 degrees with windchill.


Along with colder weather and Hybrid Learning can come Remote Learning Days. The district will use these days during inclements weather and/or district discretion. Our next Remote Learning Day will be Thursday, February 4, 2021. On this day, ALL students will be learning from home instead of Hybrid students being in the building. There is no school on Friday, February 5th. We will return to our regular Hybrid Learning schedule on Monday, February 8, 2021.


We will host a 3GRG Parent Information Night for Third Grade families ONLY on February 3, 2021 at 6pm. Please see the information below. You will also receive information from your child's teacher.


I wish everyone a safe and healthy February!



Latasha Turner

Our RCS middle schools are excited to have our 4th grade students join them next year (2021-2022) for 5th grade. This is an important transition for families as they make an informed decision about which middle school is the best fit for their student.


To help you make this decision, the middle schools have created informational videos you can watch as a family to see what each our buildings can offer. If you need additional information to help with your decision for the 2021-2022 school year, please consider joining the Zoom Q&A sessions at tinyurl.com/3nr5j6mc (info will appear closer to the date of session) or call the school directly for details.
