A Note From Mrs. Looman
- I am sending out the weekly newsletter today because I am scheduled for surgery tomorrow and will be out for 1-2 weeks. However, there is a lot of information that I wanted to be sure you got before I left so I decided not to wait until Friday. As happened while I was away, Mrs. White will be sending along any information that comes up between now and when I return.
- Next Wednesday, Oct. 25 is Picture Day. Please see the flyer below for information about how to pre-order school pictures.
- We will be having our first lockdown drill on October 20th. This drill is announced and students have the opportunity to ask questions either before or after the drill. We are very sensitive to how this feels to students and explain it in ways that are developmentally appropriate. Similar to a fire drill, we stress that this is something we practice to make sure everyone is safe and knows what to do. We do not go through potential scenarios and at no time do the police act in ways that would cause students to think it was an actual emergency event. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about our process or how we handle these drills.
Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC)
About Mohawk Trail SEPAC
The Special Education Parent Advisory Council is an advisory group led by parents within our community. We are looking to support each other and help the school district to better serve its students. The SEPAC is open to all caregivers within the district with an IEP or 504 plan, and to interested members of the community. Please reach out to us to learn more!
We meet monthly via Zoom. Upcoming meetings: Oct 23, Nov 27 at 6:30 pm
We welcome caregivers, staff, and interested members of the community to learn about SEPAC and meet local families. The public meeting will be followed by a private caregiver support discussion.
