Transfiguration Weekly Update

8/31 - 9/3

Dear Transfiguration Families,

We had a great first day week! It was wonderful to be with your children this week as we launched the new year. Most things went very smoothly…we spent the week trying to understand social distancing, how, when, and where to wash our hands and sanitize, and what routes to take in the building. The rain on Monday only added a bit of extra drama to the day, but we persevered. Recess orientation happened so the kids could enjoy some time together, art and music were enjoyed inside and outside! We said over and over… “this is an adventure - we’ve got this!” Do we have more to learn? Yes… but we’ll have to be patient with each other until it becomes our new normal. Thank you for partnering with us on this journey! Our focus at Transfiguration is still to lead all those in the East Metro to Christ who is the source and summit of our daily and eternal lives through Christian Discipleship, Academic Excellence and Great Love.

Reminder - NO SCHOOL Tomorrow (Friday) or Monday! See you on Tuesday September 8

Patience appreciated

Thank you parents for your patience in AM and PM car line. Yesterday was 22 minutes after school and this morning was 18 minutes.

Changes for next week:

* We will open the doors at 8:25 am to give students more time to get to their classes.

* Please pull all the way up to the orange cone to drop off your child(ren) if you are the first vehicle

* Please be aware of preschool parents who are passing you on the outside of the line heading towards the playground area to park AND be mindful of them crossing through the line to head out of the parking lot.

*****The preschool doors are not the main doors, so they are able to park by the playground and walk their student to the door.

After School Pick Up - Reminder to please pick up from your vehicle. At this time we are not able to gather outside and send students to you at the beginning of the line. We will try a new system on Tuesday of sending students out by family as you pull up. (This will be the process for rainy weather or potential extreme cold.)

Coming home today: We will be sending home a laminated piece of paper with your last name on it. I am learning everyone's names and type of car, but please put the last name on the driverside window so I can call your family more efficiently.
