South Fork Elem. Parent Newsletter

January 11-15, 2021

We are monitoring the weather expected in our area tonight into tomorrow morning. If there is an announcement, we will share it. Stay warm Broncos!

What's happening this week?

*We had a great first week back. This week, we will have class pictures on Friday. Please don't wear spirit shirts this Friday. We will post info on ordering class pics asap.

*1st semester report cards will be sent home on Friday, January 15th. Remember to ask your child for their report card.

*With this week's cold weather, please remember to follow the dress code. Jackets must fully zip from top to bottom (no hoodies that don't fully zip) and leggings must be navy, white, or gray. Shirts worn under uniform shirts must be white or navy.

*Be sure to write your child's name inside of their jackets. This helps if they misplace their jacket.

*Please be sure that you are sending a water bottle with your child each day. We have water for refills but can't supply multiple bottles each week to students. Thank you for your help with this.

*Please check to be sure that your 3rd-5th grader has their mask each day. If they forget it and they ride on the bus, they don't get one until they get to school. We appreciate your help in keeping everyone safe.

*If your child or any member of your immediate household is tested for COVID, please keep them home until you get the test results. Your help with this is greatly appreciated.

*Please remember to check PowerSchool often as that is the best way to see current grades. Be sure that you are encouraging your student to do their best everyday. It is much easier to begin with good grades than it is to pull low grades up from incomplete or missing assignments.

*As the weather is turning cooler, please remember that jackets must fully zip from top to bottom. Pullovers that do not zip from top to bottom are not permitted in our dress code. Leggings for girls must be solid navy or white. No patterns are allowed. Please write your child's first and last name in their jackets.

*If you have not paid your student's supply fee, please pay it as soon as possible.

*If you have a new address and/or contact numbers, please call the office so we can be sure to get those updated.

*Be sure that you join the teacher and bus driver REMIND groups and follow our FB page and our school website.

*We are doing our part to get info out to you so please help us by sharing information and helping us reach all parents.
