It’s Been a Great Start to 2021
The second semester has gotten off to a great start, as students have picked up on the routines and procedures that were established before Winter Break. In my opinion, January is always one of the best months of the school year. Students and teachers come back from break rested and enthusiastic. Connections and relationships are re-established. Overall, a lot of learning happens in January, and for that, I’m excited!
Kindergarten registration for the 2021-2022 school year is just around the corner. Due to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, the registration process will look very different than in years past. Registration will entail a brief, virtual preferred, communication between the parent and the main office. The registration window runs from January 19-March 12. I will send a more descriptive communication next week that outlines the entire registration process. Feel free to pass along the dates to any friends or neighbors you know will have a kindergarten student next school year.
Picture retakes are scheduled for next Tuesday, January 12th. All in-person students getting their picture retaken will have it done during the school day. Remote student retakes are scheduled for 2:00-2:30, and will follow the same process as the fall. Parents of remote students who plan on getting their picture retaken should see the link below to sign-up for a time.
COVID-19 Parent Certification
Continue to complete the COVID-19 online survey AND sign the luggage tag insert that is attached to your child's backpack each morning. By completing both actions, our morning routine runs very smoothly, and students are ushered into the building promptly, without delays. This allows students to start their day positively, without any unexpected setbacks.
Meal pickups are still available at Munhall every Monday and Thursday from 2:00-3:00.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Lip Sync Fans!
Have no fear. The Lip Sync will persevere!
It will look different this year but we are still going to have a lot of fun. This year’s show will be moved to the late spring to encourage acts to be outdoors (in much warmer weather.) Acts will still sign up for a song and list their performers but it will all be done virtually. There will be exciting twists and turns throughout the show. More information to come!

MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFERS - REQUEST PERIOD OPEN FROM FEB. 1 - FEB. 26
Families who wish to submit a Middle School Transfer request may do so beginning February 1, 2021. Families must complete a separate form for each student they want to be transferred. Requests are granted based on space available. This means that siblings are not guaranteed placement. A written decision will be communicated to families before spring break.
Once the request is approved, a student may remain at that middle school throughout his or her middle school career, as long as the student resides in District 303.
Families of students granted permission to attend a school outside of their assigned attendance area are responsible for their own transportation.
Students will return to their assigned attendance area high school regardless of the middle school attended.
The Middle School Transfer request window will close at 4:00pm on February 26, 2021.
If you have questions, please contact Tammy Marsan at: 331-228-2397.
