Newsletter for September 21, 2020- October 4, 2020
A Note from the Principal
Our second week of school has been exciting and fun!! Our students have jumped right in as if they were never away!
We have welcomed many new students this week, so I will be leaving most of the beginning of the year information in this newsletter to ensure everyone has had a chance to see it. School may look a little different this year with some of our policy and procedural changes that have been implemented according to new guidelines, but I assure you we are dedicated to providing your child a high quality education in a loving environment.
Below, you will find our beginning of the year information as well as links to the WSISD and North Facebook pages and the WSISD website. These resources will provide up to date and valuable information.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, Mrs. Alexander, Mrs. Barber, or Ms. Bautista if you have any questions or suggestions.
Love, Mrs. Bitters

Virtual Learning is Going Strong
Families that prefer for their student to return to in-person learning will be allowed to do so on Monday, Sept. 28th. A form was emailed to all virtual families on Friday.
This is the email that was sent.
We have now completed the first full week of virtual learning. If you feel In Person learning would better suit your student please complete this form by Wednesday, Sept. 23rd. Once you complete the form your student can start In Person on Sept. 28th. The campus will follow up with you to let you know your child's teacher.
