Principal Lewis' Sunday Update for the week of 8/16/21

Sunday Call for week of August 16th, 2021

Good evening Sierra Madre Families, this is Mrs. Lewis, your principal. It was so wonderful to see all of you last week! I am so excited to have the kiddos back in the hallways as it has brought life back to the building! Thank you for trusting our work to keep your kiddo safe while in school!

Here are the announcements for this week:

Monday, August 16th Will be our first shortened day of the school year with dismissal at 12:35pm. Dismissal is in the same locations at drop-off. Please remember to let your kiddo’s teacher know what the after school pick up plan is. Also, please do not block neighbor driveways or park your car on the school side and get out of the car.

Wednesday, August 18th We will have our first virtual PTA general meeting at 6:30pm.


Announcements
