A NOTE FROM DR. CHURCH

Dear Totem Falls Families,


I want to thank everyone who has been able to respond to our survey regarding your intentions for returning to school next year. I know it is difficult to plan for a future that is still so unclear. I want you to know that I am planning for a more traditional return to school with class occurring 5 days a week in-person. If this is what you are hoping for next fall too, please reply that you intend to return. This will not “lock you in” to this decision, but give me clearer numbers for planning. I would much prefer to plan for the future we hope and need to make revisions in the fall if needed.


With my second vaccination behind me by more than two weeks, I feel more confident in managing life and hope many of you are in the same boat. I can’t believe May has arrived, as I prepare for what school will look like next year. Please remember to send me any information you’d like to share regarding classroom placement for next year and include Tiffany in your email. We would like this information by May 6th.


Sincerely,

-Craig

LOST & FOUND

Warm weather = a growing lost & found. Please encourage your students to check the lost and found, which is by the entrance to the gym, for items they have misplaced. Also, if you label items, we can work on getting it back to the students. Thank you.
