Health and Wellness Reminder

We want to take this opportunity to provide a reminder that while the District is currently not requiring a daily health screener, all students, families, and staff members must remember that regular symptom monitoring is an important mitigation strategy to maintain the ability to continue in-person instruction. As such, please remember that students who are not feeling well CANNOT attend school, and families MUST report their symptoms to their school health office. In addition, siblings or family members of ill or symptomatic students CANNOT attend school until the symptomatic student has been cleared by the school nurse, which may include a negative COVID test. Finally, students and/or students of family members who have tested positive for COVID cannot attend school and must contact the school nurse.

Please also keep in mind that students should not be sent to school if awaiting COVID test results (from an outside source).

Second Step - Social Emotional Learning

We are excited to be starting our Second Step lessons during Morning Meeting times. Through this program, students will engage in units on the following topics (NOTE: 4th and 5th grade students will cover Skills for Learning and Empathy topics in one unit instead of across two):

  • Skills for Learning

  • Empathy

  • Emotion Management

  • Problem-solving

Families can expect to receive further communication from classroom teachers regarding the program and how to access materials that can be used to support social-emotional learning at home.

Lunch Menu Changes

This week, we have two slight adjustments to our lunch menu due to supply shortages. The two changes to our menu are:

  • Tuesday, 9/14/21: Mini Maple Pancake Wraps will be served instead of Pancakes & Sausage
  • Wednesday, 9/15/21: Crispy Chicken Sandwich will be served instead of Cheesy Nachos

We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
