2nd Nine Weeks of School~October 19

Beginning with the second grading period on Oct. 19, schools across the District are set to welcome back all students who selected the in-person learning option in the District's most recent survey. We are working now to notify families of this start date. Please expect a call by your child's teacher by Wednesday, October 14.

If a student engaged in virtual learning is struggling academically, parents are encouraged to reach out to their child's teacher for assistance. If capacity exists, we may be able to work with families to allow a virtual learner to return to in-person learning prior to the end of the grading period.

We have worked diligently the past few weeks to ensure appropriate safety procedures and protocols are in place. Some of these practices include a daily health screening for students and staff, the use of appropriate face masks, strategically placed plexiglass shields, enhanced cleaning by staff, and social distancing. These protocols will remain in place to better ensure the health of students and staff.

Breakfast Reminder

Breakfast is served from 7:00-7:40 a.m. each day. Please make sure your child arrives in plenty of time to pick up breakfast from the cafeteria and eat their breakfast in the classroom. Classroom Meetings begin promptly at 7:45 a.m. At 7:45 a.m., all students should be finished with breakfast.
