8/29/2021 - Finding the Rhythm

Hello Families!

We have had a great start to the school year! I know some families are still waiting on transportation but we want to thank you for your diligence on getting your scholar to school and picking them up! Thank you for your patience as we work on finding our rhythm with dismissal!

MAP testing went very well last week. We are celebrating your scholar's growth and helping them understand the significance of their growth. Family reports will be sent out by Friday for you to review as well. Scholar's who may have missed a testing session will be able to make it up this week.

Families, make sure you keep your the reports and bring them with you to our STEPP Advisory (parent meeting) that will take place Tuesday, September 7th, @ 6:00 PM (in-person or on ZOOM). We will review the significance of MAP testing and how you can support your scholars continued growth. **The class with the greatest parent attendance will receive a pizza party!**

Families, please make note;

beginning Monday, August 23rd, for safety and security purposes early dismissal will NOT be allowed after 2:15 pm.

Also, please remember the following:

1. COVID Guidelines: All scholars and staff must wear masks in the building. Please make sure your child has their own mask.

Visitors will not be allowed in the building during school hours. This is for the health and safety of all scholars and staff. This includes parents/guardians. If you have a specific need we will meet you at the front door to best serve you.

Your scholar may bring a refillable water bottle to school as we now have COVID safe, touchless drinking fountains.

2. Transportation: We know that there may some issues tomorrow with transportation. As much as we would like to help you with every need, the best way for you to get the information you need is to call 614-365-5074. Please communicate to us anything you learn so we can best support you and other parents.

3. Uniform - Please make sure your scholar is in uniform tomorrow. Black polo top, black or khaki bottoms (no leggings), any shoes (no slides). If you are in need of any support with these items, please do not hesitate to ask.

4. Cell Phones - scholar's cell phones must be in their lockers during school hours. Those that did not make it to orientation will receive the cell phone policy tomorrow.
