Kindergarten parents-please join me for some coffee after drop off on August 11th to take some deep breaths and enjoy the company of other families going through the same thing. I remember dropping off each of my children at Kindergarten and it is always bittersweet.

Watermelon Welcome- August 9th

Message from our Charles Hay PTSA-

Hi CHWS Families,

Hope everyone had an amazing summer! Can you believe that it is Watermelon Welcome time already? We could use some help in making this event a success. Each year the PTSA purchases all of the watermelons, but we could really use some help cutting and handing them out.

Please review the available slots below and let us know if you can help out. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Reminder- UNIVERSAL FREE MEALS HAVE EXPIRED FOR THE 22/23 SCHOOL YEAR. On August, 11, 2022, students will be charged for lunch unless they qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Breakfast will remain free. We are encouraging families to apply for meal benefits for the 2022–2023 school year (before August 11, 2022) to ensure negative balances do not accrue on students' accounts.

By applying and qualifying for free or reduced-price meals students will also be eligible for approved waived fees within the district. It also helps with district funding for student education and grant funding.

COVID Protocols for 2022-2023

Following the lead of public health agencies, Englewood Schools will no longer be tracking COVID cases or symptoms or notifying parents of an exposure. Students who are ill should not come to school, and if a student becomes ill at school, they will be sent home. If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, they should stay home from school or work for at least 5 days and then wear a mask while around others for the following 5 days. Use the "How Sick is Too Sick" (here in Spanish) to determine if your child is well enough to come to school.
