We are happy to welcome you back!
Dear Cunniff Families,
On Tuesday we will begin to welcome our Road to Hybrid students back to school. Cohort A students in grades K-5 will begin on Tuesday and cohort B students in grades K-5 will begin on Wednesday. We have missed seeing and hearing the sights and sounds that make elementary schools a place like no other! And although Tuesday and Wednesday will be special days for us, we realize that we still have students in virtual school that we look forward to welcoming back in February!
On Friday, classroom teachers sent out their weekly smores that were full of important information regarding the transition back. I hope that you and your student(s) got an opportunity to view the slideshows and videos that teachers created in order to introduce the classroom to students.
Below I have linked the slideshows I shared during the past three weeks regarding the exterior & interior of Cunniff West as well directions for arrival and dismissal:
Welcome to Cunniff West! is a slideshow that will provide students and families with a glimpse of what the interior of the Cunniff West building looks like.
Arrival, Break & Departure defines the process we will use to ensure that students enter and exit the school and their classrooms safely.

Below I have attached information regarding the procedures and safety precautions that have been taken by the bus company. Additionally, a second attachment lists the times and the locations where the bus stops to pick up students.

A Few Reminders
Classroom practices for using materials will be outlined by teachers with the support of coaches, and coordinators. All of these practices will be aligned to ensure that students are not sharing materials with classmates. An example includes browsing independent reading choices with your eyes before making a selection.
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
A reminder to wait for students alongside the marked - designated spaces on the exterior of the school grounds.
For the first week, we will begin lining up for dismissal according to the following times and locations:
Grades K and 1 - 12:05 - Main Entrance Door for K, Side Parking Lot Door for Gr. 1
Grades 2 and 3 - 12:10 - Side Parking Lot Door
Grades 4 and 5 - 12:13 - Side parking Lot Door
Please note that all students taking the bus will do so at the side entrance door.
Kindergarten students will be escorted from the Main Entrance door to the school bus waiting at the side entrance.
