Dear Tashua Families,


Congratulations goes out to our students! They have earned over 50 stripes for Thunder! To celebrate this accomplishment, we have decided to have an entire school spirit week leading up to spring break, April 5th - April 9th. Each day will have a special theme with us wrapping up the week with a "Fun Friday", which will consist of our entire student body participating in a school-wide game. More information will be shared as our plans develop.

On another exciting note, we will start to use our cafeteria next week on a rotating basis. Grade levels will have the opportunity to eat in the cafeteria every other week. While the students are dining in the cafeteria, they will be seated diagonally, using every other opposite seat to allow for social distancing. They will also be using their desk shields in the café as they enjoy their lunches.


Further, starting Wednesday 3/24, students will be returning to in-person learning 5 days a week, unless families choose to have their children be total remote learners. Wednesdays will continue to be early release days with the students being dismissed at 1:00 PM. Lunch will not be served on these early release days, however it will be offered as a "Grab and Go" option. Students will pack their lunches in their backpacks and bring them home to enjoy. Again, we are encouraging all students to order breakfast and lunch each day.


Please be reminded, the ability for students to access remote learning is reserved for students who are experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, students needing to quarantine as a result of being a "close contact" of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or for families who have signed up to have their children participate as total remote learners. For all other purposes, parents should contact the school to record their child's absence.


Again, we thank you for your continued support and partnership in ensuring the success and happiness of our students. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, suggestions or good news to share.


Warm regards,

Mrs. Neumeyer

Principal
