Big T Weekly

October 30, 2020

A Message from Mrs. Walgast

Dear Big T Families,

This has been a great week for two main reasons…. we are back home at Big T and our family is complete as we welcomed back 4th and 5th graders to in-person learning. Spirit week added a little fun to this awesome week as well! We are #BigTStrong!

Remember that picture day was rescheduled (due to our snow day) to this Monday, November 2nd. Look for more details in this newsletter.

And by now, you all should have received a message regarding a registration form for the second semester. Please take the time to fill it out as this will help us plan for the second semester. Thank you!

Finally a few reminders about some changes to how we are doing things at Big T this year:

  • Drop off begins at 7:45a.m. (8:45a.m. on Wednesdays) in the back parking lot. Staff will be directing students to their entrance. Students may be walked to their entrance. Both students and adults must be wearing a mask on campus. Only students may enter the building.

    • Please do not arrive prior to 7:45a.m. (8:45 a.m. on Wednesdays) as the buses need to be able to have full access to the drop off lane until 7:40a.m.)

  • Students will enter the building and go directly to their classrooms upon arrival

  • Breakfast and lunch will be free for all students until December. Please do fill out the application for meals@

  • Students will need a water bottle as all drinking fountains are shut off

  • Students must wear a mask that fits around their nose and mouth. Please be sure to wash masks frequently.

  • Each grade level will be considered a cohort that will not intermix with other cohorts throughout the day.

  • Pick up/dismissal: Please utilize the pick up lane and do not get out of your car. Due to county health guidelines, we are not able to have people gather at the gate as in past years.

    • Dismissal is at 3:10p.m.

    • Please note that if the buses are still in the bus lane when you arrive, wait on the shoulder at the entrance of the driveway.

    • Please do not block the driveway of the fire station

Stay safe and be well.

Most sincerely,

Sarah Walgast
