Janie Stark Elementary Parent Newsletter

September 27, 2020

Dear Stallion Families,

Thank you for your continued support. We are truly living out our motto....Together We Can! Without your family support, we would not be able to accomplish all that we are with traditional on-site learning, remote learning, technology troubleshooting, homework and more!

Now more than ever, I am so proud to be the principal of Janie Stark! The partnership between parents and staff members is what makes this community the BEST school in CFB!

Again, we know these times are not easy. We feel blessed that you have entrusted us with educating your child on campus or from a distance!

To the BEST of days,

Mrs. Putman

Changing Learning Option for the 2nd Nine Weeks

CFBISD sent out information to families that wish to change their learning option for the 2nd Nine Weeks. The change will take place on October 19th through December 18th.

It will be critical to make your choice Remote or Traditional setting for the 2nd 9 weeks in a timely manner. MANY safety decisions are made based on the number of children returning to the campus. Thus, your decision will be final through December.

Information regarding this VERY IMPORTANT CHOICE was sent by the district earlier this week. Thank you for promptly make a change if you choose to do so for the 2nd Nine Weeks.
