Office Update: May 11, 2022

Dewing School Information from Mrs. Gerrish and Mrs. Bosworth

Hello Dewing School Community,

Thank you to each and every person who made our Teacher/Staff appreciation week so special. Your thoughtfulness was much appreciated by all of us.

It is hard to believe we are almost in the middle of May. The end of the year brings much excitement with many fun activities! We are certain that we will see many smiling faces in the classrooms and hallways. We recognize that some students will also be feeling a little sad. We know how much they love their teachers and how much their teachers care for them. It is an important time for us all to recognize the many feelings our little ones have.

COVID-We have seen a bit of a rise in the number of COVID cases over the past two weeks. We ask that families continue to be vigilant in monitoring for symptoms at home. We also ask that you please report any positive cases to our nurse, Mrs. Robinson. As always, our COVID dashboard is linked below.

Pickup Patrol-Yesterday, we sent home information about our new dismissal system. This program also allows you to report absences. If you report an absence through this system, you do NOT need to call the school line to report this absence. Please remember, we continue to need a physician's note for an absence to be reported as excused. The notice is attached below.

Fun Run-The Fun Run will be coming up quickly-Please see the flyer below.

Field Trip Chaperones/CORI's-Our CORI processing window has now closed. If you have not submitted a CORI prior to last Friday, these can no longer be processed. We encourage you to submit a CORI form at the beginning of each school year to prevent the end of year rush. Chaperones-when chaperoning for a field trip, we ask that you do not take photos of students or post any photos of students to social media.

Library News: The library will be coming to a close the week of the 23rd. Students will still come to library, however, they will not be able to check out books. Please make sure your student returns their library books that week. We will be sending notices home the following week for any outstanding due library books.
