Big T Weekly

April 9th, 2021

A Message from Mrs. Walgast

Dear Big T Families,

We have had another great week of learning at Big T!

This week I would like to remind you of a couple thingsā€¦

  • Dismissal: Please remember that when you are picking up your child, you are to remain in your car and utilize our pick-up lane. I am aware that we have some families who do live within walking distance of the school and do walk to pick up your child. When on campus, please remember to wear a mask. Thank you!

  • CMAS for 3rd-5th grade: Testing dates are April 12, 13th and 15th. It is helpful for students to get a good night's sleep the night before. All students will be able to have breakfast each morning as meals continue to be free for all through the remainder of the school year. And, please be sure to be at school and on time each and every day.

  • STEM Night: check out the flyer

  • No School on April 16th and 19th- Happy 4-day weekend!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Stay safe and be well!

Most sincerely,

Sarah Walgast

Annual Student Registration

It is mandatory for the PRIMARY guardian to do the Annual Student Registration (formerly Annual Family Update) and update all information including emergency contacts, phone numbers AND district permissions for the upcoming school year. It takes 10 minutes to complete. Please do so today. I have attached instructions. Your application is not complete until you have hit the RED SUBMIT button AND CONFIRM button.

IF you have moved and need to update your address: During ASR, you MUST upload a copy of your utility bill or top page of your lease if you are changing schools (OR email it to your students current school today) to complete the address update.

I have also attached Parent Portal instructions if you need help accessing Portal. Please remember the ASR can ONLY be done by the primary guardian.

Note...upcoming 6th graders MUST have their Tdap booster. Please do this before August 1st, 2021. Once your student has received this booster, please send a copy of the updated immunizations to their 6th grade school.

Thank you for your immediate action!
