Big picture

Dear ESS Families,

Next week will begin our final preparation for the start of school. We know families have many questions, and we will continue to try and answer them as soon as we can. We want to be completely transparent. This is all new, and we just don't have all the answers. Although we have tried to be predictive, we don't know what problems will arise once we begin. But we want everyone to know that during our first couple of weeks, our main priority will be the safety and emotional well-being of all of our Enfield Street School Community.

iPad Distribution

On Thursday, September 3rd, we will be distributing iPads and other necessary items to our students. We will be sending out specific times and instructions early next week, but the format will be set times by class throughout the day, and to have the majority of families not leave their vehicle. We will be very flexible if you are unable to make a time, only asking that you contact the office once you know you will need a change.


  • We will be using this as a time to return iPads that were loaned in the spring.
  • We ask that you return the iPad waiver sheet that was included with the class placement letter.
  • We will be distributing necessary workbooks, supplies, and masks to remote learning students.
  • All workbooks and necessary supplies will be provided to hybrid students when they attend school in person.

Nurse

The school nurse will be in starting next week from 8-2 each day. Please reach out to determine a day and time to bring in forms and medications.

Kindergarten Orientation

We will be holding a virtual kindergarten orientation on Friday, September 4th, from 10:00-10:30 a.m. This will be sent out as a ZOOM link next week. Following orientation will be a virtual kindergarten open house at 10:30 a.m. This invite will be sent via Teams by the classroom teacher next week, and is a great opportunity to make sure your child can link to their class page.

Open House for 1st and 2nd

Our 1st and 2nd grade classes will also have on opportunity for an open house on Friday, September 4th. First grade will be at 11:00 a.m., and second grade at 11:30 a.m. Please look for a Teams invite from your classroom teacher during next week.
