Message from Mr. Hanzeli

Hello Elger Bay Families,


This next 10 days is filled with a great deal of transition and change for all. As a district, we have tried to minimize the overall number of student and staff changes, while still meeting as many of the specific family and staff needs as possible during this health and safety impacted time in our lives.


Much of the specific information regarding student placement and AA/BB hybrid schedule placement will be delivered to your EMail on Monday evening. If you do not receive an Email and still have questions regarding your child's placement, please call the office on Tuesday morning at 9:00.


Much thanks for your caring and patience. I see it, hear it, and appreciate it :-)


Sincerely,


Victor Hanzeli, Principal

SCSD Friday Family Communication, 9.25.20

Grade by Grade Hybrid Transition Instructions

Every student in grades 1 - 5 moving into the hybrid model will receive a notice confirming their placement on Monday, September 28. Those students who have opted for Continuous Learning 2.0 will be notified of their teacher placement by Wednesday, September 30.


Kindergarten

  • Beginning October 1, in person kindergarten students who have been meeting as small groups of 5 will blend with the other group of 5 to form a group up to 10 students working with the classroom teacher. NOTE: Kindergarten on 10/1 and 10/2 will still be 9:00-11:30.

  • On Monday, October 5th, in person kindergarten students will transition to full days from 9:00-3:30 in the hybrid model AA/BB.


Grade 1 - Grade 3

  • Hybrid teacher placement and AA (Monday / Tuesday) or BB (Thursday / Friday) assignments are going to be communicated to you by School Messenger by Monday evening.

  • If you do not receive this communication on Monday, please call your school’s office for the information on Tuesday.

  • A reminder that in some cases teachers have transferred to different assignments and/or buildings so this may mean a different teacher for your child than the current assignment. We have tried as much as possible to minimize these changes.

  • Students in grades 1-3 who are opting for Continuous Learning will be assigned a new teacher by Wednesday, September 30.


Grade 4 - Grade 5

  • The hybrid students in grades 4 and 5 who have been assigned a new teacher will be notified of their new teacher by Monday evening using the School Messenger system.

  • On Monday, October 5th, any student in grades 4 or 5 who has been assigned a new teacher will begin working with that teacher.

  • All students in grades 4 and 5 will continue in distance learning until October 26.

  • A reminder that in some cases teachers have been transferred to different responsibilities and so this may mean a different teacher for your child than the current assignment. We have tried as much as possible to minimize these changes.

  • Students in grades 4-5 who are opting for Continuous Learning will be assigned a new teacher by Wednesday, September 30.


PBS Students


  • PBS students electing to attend in person in the PBS program begin full time on Thursday, October 1.

School Pictures This Week...Drive Thru Edition

Firefly Images is excited to offer a "drive-thru" picture day and look forward to seeing your students on the other side of our camera, 6 feet away of course.


Pictures will be taken Wednesday, September 29 or Friday, October 2 between 2:30 and 6:00.


This is a "by appointment" event for students in grades 1-5. Kindergarten students will be photographed at school during an in-person day. Sign-up up for your day/time using this link: https://fs4.formsite.com/FireFly/0x8p2ocz7r/index.html


You have two options available to order pictures. The order form is attached and can be printed and sent with your student. Just staple cash, check or money order to the form.


Order online using a credit card: https://fs4.formsite.com/FireFly/kgg3a9ebvi/index.html If you use this method, no other form is needed. Just send your receipt/confirmation with your student when they come forward to the camera.


Photos will be taken in the small southwest covered area down by the kindergarten rooms which will allow parents to park very close and allow students to go forward in order to maintain social distancing.
