Streelman Off Campus

I am scheduled in a Principal's meeting all day Thursday. Text/email if you need me!

A Little Gift

First Baptist Church made a generous donation to teachers! If you haven't received yours yet, it should be inside an envelope in your mailbox. Enjoy!

Flexibility & Patience

Tomorrow is unlike any first day we have ever had! We put procedures and schedules in place hoping they will work. They might not! If you have ideas or suggestions after we have experienced a "day in the life", please share them with us so we can make things smoother for everyone!

Parent Pick Up: Media Center

For 2nd-5th grades, they are dismissing for parent pick up in the media center. We don't know what to expect tomorrow in regards to how many car riders we will have. I made some signs and taped them on the shelves and one wall to help separate by grade. These can be moved--all of this can be changed, of course, once we have an idea of who is coming!


The masks that were generously donated by our community for students are in the front office. If you have a need for some, please let me know!

Classroom/Office Visitor Log

If you enter a classroom or someone's office, you must fill out the classroom visitor log. We must all have one of these available for people to sign in. Even if the room is empty, you still must sign in to document that you were there should the Health Department need to know where staff was. I made one and shared it with you several weeks ago. The link below is one the District has created. There are copies on light purple paper up front on the desk if you need to grab some. Please submit to Jen each time one is complete. Thank you!

Students with COVID-19 Symptoms


If you take pics that I can share on Dojo/Facebook, please text them to me. Not just on the first day, but anytime!

Headphones for all!

Two bags with 12 headphones each were placed in your classrooms. These are from the IT department so all students have their own and do not share. If you don't need all of them, save them for the future! We have some extra in storage if you need more.

Need a Sub?

You must activate your Frontline Education account in order to have a sub! Here is the presentation:
