Discovery Primary Update

March 1, 2021

Messeage From the Principal

Dear Families,

Thank you parents of students in our Hybrid Program for your patience with our short term shut down last week. We are starting back with classes for Hybrid A on Tuesday, March 2. The school building has been throughly cleaned, we have substitutes in place for the staff members who need to quarantine, and we have reviewed safety protocols with staff. Hopefully we will not need to shut school down again.

Conferences for all students will be held on March 10th, 11th and 12th. Your classroom teacher will be in contact with you regarding date, time and zoom invite for individual conferences. We look forward to discussing with you your child's growth and goals for this school year. Please check the calendar below for early release and no school days this month to accommodate the conferences.

Included in this newsletter is information about kindergarten registration for next year. If you know someone who has a child who will be five years old by August 31 we would appreciate it if you would share this information.

Have a wonderful March. May spring arrive soon!


Julie Bartlett, Principal

Mask Reminder for Hybrid Families

Wearing a mask at school is a very effective safety measure, but becomes less effective if masks are dirty. Please consider sending multiple masks to school with your student, and washing reusable masks regularly at home. If you are unable to provide or wash masks, please contact our School Counselor, Kelsey George, at
