A Wonderful Beginning
I am extremely proud of how the first week has gone. Minimal tears at arrival. Minor detours in the day. Lots of fun in the classroom. Happy goodbyes at dismissal. These are all great signs of a wonderful beginning, and promising indicators of an amazing year. Thank you for your support in a great reopening and we look forward to sharing more good news with you!

Successes of the First Week
The first week has been wonderful. We have many successes to share as well as minor things we are focused on refining.
- Arrival and Dismissal have been smooth. Our new traffic pattern has been positive.
- Students are adapting to the school schedule well and following good health practices like hand-washing.
- Our teachers have made personal connections with families for all students who are in-person or remote. Our meet and greets also went well!
- Our digital curriculum has been introduced to families. Teachers are uploading videos already and prepared to begin live google meets next week.
- We will have two people helping with sign out at dismissal to help move the process along.
A Committed Community
A big thank you to all of our families for doing all the prework that you have done to help your child with wearing a mask and keeping it on. It is impressive how wonderful these young students have adapted to this protocol. They have been diligent with wearing the mask and keeping it on! We thank you for being committed to the CDC mandates and the district guidance. The lower the transmission rates in Morris County then the longer we will be able to stay open. Keep up the good work!As a reminder, The CDC recommends cloth face coverings, but disposable masks are also acceptable, as long as the mouth and nose are properly covered. Please do not use masks with exhalation valves. Plastic face shields are not permitted as a substitute, except for students who are exempt from wearing masks due to a documented medical condition or disability. Bandanas, snowboarding gaiters, or other coverings without straps or ear loops will not be accepted.
If you are in need of a device, please submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, child's name, school, and classroom teacher. Please note that devices will only be set up for access to Google Meet. Online games will not be accessible through our devices as this is not a part of our curriculum.
