COVID UPDATES FOR PREK-4 STUDENTS AND STAFF~Voluntary Masking
At this week's board meeting, the decision was made to change the mask mandate to OPTIONAL VOLUNTARY MASKING beginning MONDAY, MARCH 14th. We know this will bring some big emotions for some students and staff. Please take some time to discuss your family's choice and how your child will proceed with masking. According to the new masking decision, staff will not be monitoring whether or not your child is wearing a mask appropriately. Please discuss as a family what your preferences are prior to Monday.
Feeling anxious? Let us know if your child has big feelings around this new decision. We will support some strategies for feeling safe and calm about the new change.
Attendance & Tardies
PLAYGROUND MEET UP: March 24, 2:30-4
Families can pick up students as usual and then enter the playground from the lower parking lot or Argyle entrance. We will play on the field and in the garden until 3 and then once buses leave, we will spread to the playground area. Please remember to put all materials away before you leave.
