News from Mrs. Mankin
Dear Bulldog Families,
To better meet the needs of our students as we transition to Phase 2, our 50-50 model, the decision was made to adjust the in-person school day. Teachers will now be working with all virtual learners from 9:00-9:40 as well as conducting a 10-minute afternoon check-in. In-person learners will now start their day at 9:45. Our school day will end at 3:15.
We are also developing some open enrichment/extension opportunities that will be led by our Teacher Librarian, Teacher Development Specialist, School Counselor, and possibly some other support staff. This learning will be offered to virtual learners in the afternoons. More specific information will be shared by the end of this week. We continue to be so thankful for the flexibility and perseverance of our Bulldog staff and families as we respond to city, state, and school corporation updates. The grace, support, patience, collaboration and determination that I see on a daily basis from our entire learning community is truly astounding - and these characteristics are what make us BULLDOG STRONG!
As always, thank you for partnering with us in education.

Snack Attack Program
New Britton Elementary is pleased to announce the Snack Attack program for those students in need. This program, supported by the Fishers Youth Assistance Program, is designed to provide students a little extra nourishment for the weekend until they can receive a hot meal at school on Monday. This program will officially start the week of September 14th. To participate, please have your student's name to Sherri Leiner by Wednesday, September 2nd. Here's how the program works. Your student will pick up a small sack of food to be taken home over the weekend. The sack is filled with individually wrapped snacks such as granola bars, fruit cups, pop tarts, peanut butter/crackers, Goldfish crackers, etc. The type of snacks will vary each week. Please let us know if your child has a peanut allergy as he/she will receive a special bag of peanut-free snacks.
There is no cost to you or the school. If you are interested in having your student participate in FYAP's Snack Attack or have questions, please contact Mrs. Sherri Leiner, NBE School Counselor at email@example.com or (317) 594-4130 ext. 2087.
Notes from the Nurse
If you indicated your child has asthma or a food allergy on Skyward, Mrs. Cernero emailed or provided you with a Care Plan to complete and return to the school.
If your child will need to take a scheduled medication at school every day or store an as-needed medication in the clinic, you can find the Medication Permission Form and care plan at the link below under the Services Tab.
Any prescription medications must be in the original prescription bottle. Please note the clinic no longer has permission to keep Benadryl as an emergency medication. If you wish to have Benadryl available for your child on an as-needed basis, please provide your own supply and a permission form.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call or email Heather Cernero at (317) 594-4130 or firstname.lastname@example.org
