February & March 2021

An Update From Principal Melissa Rohr

Hello Griffin Families!


We are so excited that we have been able to welcome back Kindergarten through Fifth grade. It has been a wonderful experience to walk through the halls and see students in classrooms learning and spending time together with staff and peers. In order to serve students efficiently in the morning and get them in to class quickly we are asking that you make sure you have the following things completed upon arrival and dismissal:


  • Initial the attestation card before you arrive at the school. The card should be located on the lanyard your student was provided.

  • Make sure your student is already wearing a mask.

  • Have their backpack zipped up and ready to go if they are getting out of a car.

  • When picking up your student display the color coded placard in your car window so we can see the student and teacher name.

  • If you change your student’s normal pickup procedure send a note to school or call the office to notify us of the change.


If you have questions about arrival and departure procedures please feel free to contact us. We are thankful for your patience and understanding as we all get used to these new circumstances.
