Castle Rock Communiqué

We Love Our Knights!

March 19, 2021 (Week Thirty)

Happy Friday, Castle Rock Families!

We realize the decision whether to send your child(ren) back to in-person instruction on April 19th, or to keep them learning from home for the remainder of the year, was a difficult decision to make for many of our families.

Now that we know we will have just over 250 students returning to campus each day beginning April 19th, we will begin our school-wide preparation, and teacher's will begin setting up their classrooms. Teachers have been provided up to five days of tutorial time to be used for classroom preparation anytime between March 18 - April 1. Teachers should be communicating the days they will not host tutorials with their students and parents.

Soon, Castle Rock will provide additional information specific to the school site for campus procedures. Stay tuned!

We thank all of our families, with students returning to campus, and those continuing to learn from home, for your patience, understanding, flexibility, and grace throughout this entire process.

Good things this week at Castle Rock:

Our TK friends enjoyed a "Letter T Tea Party" on Thursday with Mrs. Richard!
