Welcome To May!

Hello Knox Families!

Our return to campus has been amazing! It brings us so much joy to see our students here with us after a year at home online. Thank you parents for your partnerships in this transition to Phase 2. Our students have done an amazing job following safety protocols, bringing their charged laptops, and navigating all of the changes in their schedules.

For our Knox 8th grade families, we will be hosting a drive thru to celebrate our 8th grade students, as well as creating a celebration promotion video. Students will need to join the Knox 8th Grade Promotion Google Classroom for updated info on Promotion and the drive thru.

8th grade parents- Please check out the flyer below for your designated 8th grade promotion drive thru time. The event will be organized by student last names to adhere to distancing and safety protocols. Students will receive their certificates and medals while they are in the car. One car per family will be allowed in the drive thru. Please mark your calendar for the designated time for your student. Additional info has been sent to our 8th grade families via School Messenger.

Check out the Lincoln Cluster Newsletter for more awesome events happening in our cluster.

Our next SSC/SGT meeting will be held on 5/26 at 3:00 pm.

Meeting ID: 835 4583 3791

Social Emotional Learning @ Knox

Each Friday our staff and students join together to write poetry in a whole-school Zoom assembly. Each assembly is lead by Movement Be leaders Terrance and Justice. This time together has strengthened our community, provided time to share from the heart and to get to know each other better. What an amazing way to end the week, with such an uplifting, deep and mindful experience as a team each Friday!

Knox Primetime Update

Hello Knox Students & Families!

We want to give everyone a warm welcome back to campus! We are working closely with the school to make sure all students are safe and all health guidelines are being observed.

Now that Primetime has resumed in person programming, our schedule has changed. Primetime meets Monday – Thursday from 12:15pm to 6:00pm in Room 5. Knox follows a 2-day alternating schedule so students will only be in program two days a week unless students are approved for a 4-day schedule. As an extra safety measure, those parents who are picking up students from Primetime will need to call the site phone number so we can walk your student(s) outside. No parents are allowed on campus at this time.

For students to have the best experience, we need to work collaboratively during the remainder of the school year. Please be attentive of any communications from Primetime and make sure to complete all documentation required in a timely manner. For those interested in joining program, please get in touch so we can provide an application and all the necessary details.

Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to having you become part of our Knox Primetime family!
