From The Principal

Welcome February... you arrived quite quickly!

We continue to be thankful and proud of our Collins Cobras for their continued dedication to all of our health and safety protocols. Thank you to our wonderful families for ensuring your children are staying home when they are sick or showing COVID like symptoms. And when children are home the are engaging with school using remote learning.

Progress reports for the third grading period will be available in PAC at the end of this week. Please be sure to log in so that you can review current grades for your child in all of their classes. There is time to address concerns and celebrate hard work before the end of the grading period and next report card.

Sixth grade parents -- a Incoming Knox section has been created towards the end of this newsletter. We will be sure to include all Knox updates, attachments, and newsletters throughout the spring semester.

Stay Safe and Healthy,

Shelli LeBlanc
