The Sterling Jaguar Journal
November 30, 2020
We have enjoyed having our youngest students back in the building since October and look forward to our next group of students joining us. Welcoming both our preschool program students as well as our kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students was a smooth and successful transition. Students in grades 3-5 whose families selected the hybrid model of instruction will return to the school building tomorrow, December 1, as I shared in earlier messages. Your child's teacher reached out with the days your student will attend each week. The remainder of the school days will entail a morning meeting followed by 60-90 minutes of asynchronous work completed by the child without face-to-face instruction from the teacher.
Breakfast and lunch will be available at no charge to all of our students at Sterling Elementary.
Due to health and safety precautions, we need all of our students' families to complete the Health Questionnaire each morning your child is scheduled to attend prior to sending your child to school. Please keep your child at home if you answered “yes” to any of the questions on the questionnaire. Due to COVID-19, your child will need to wear a mask when attending school and will not be allowed to share school supplies and materials. We will adhere to the CDC guidelines with six feet of physical distancing as well.
Please provide the following for in-person learning:
- Extra mask (in backpack)
- Lunch (optional)
- Water Bottle (optional)
If you are in need of a backpack and/or mask, please let us know so we can supply one for you.
School Hours: 7:50 a.m. - 2:35 p.m.
Transportation: provided for bus riders
Walkers: crossing guard available
Breakfast/Lunch: provided at no charge
We are looking forward to seeing your child in person beginning Tuesday, December 1, or Wednesday, December 2, depending on their assigned day. Should you have questions, please contact us here at the school: 571-434-4580.
