Upcoming Schedule Change
Monday, Jan. 11- Friday, Jan. 15th
All students (K-5) will continue their full day remote schedules as they have been for the past few weeks.
Monday, Jan. 18th- Martin Luther King's Birthday: NO SCHOOL
Starting Tuesday, Jan. 19th
All grades (K-5) return to the A/B groupings. This means that students will be with their teacher for 1/2 of the day, and spend the remaining 1/2 on individual activities and CATs at home. Families who have had a placement change received notification earlier this week. If you are unsure of your child's placement, please contact the school (contact info below).
Group A (with the teacher in the mornings)
- 8:45-11:20 am (Tuesday-Friday)
Group B (with the teacher in the afternoons)
- 1:00-3:45 pm (Tuesday-Friday)
Kindergarten, 1st-grade, 2nd-grade, & 3rd-grade: On Jan. 19th will return to In-Person (meaning at school) for 1/2 of their day and engage in individual activities and CATs for the remaining portion of the day at home. Families opting for full remote are still grouped into A or B which means they will Zoom with their teacher rather than physically coming to school.
4th-grade & 5th-grade: Will follow the A/B schedule starting Jan. 19th, BUT will not start any In-Person learning until Tuesday, Jan. 26th. During the week of Jan. 19th, all A/B students will Zoom with their teacher for 1/2 of the day and engage in individual activities and CATs for the remaining portion of the day. Starting Tuesday, Jan. 26th 4th & 5th-grade students will begin In-Person (meaning at school) for 1/2 of their day. Families opting for full remote are still grouped into A or B which means they will Zoom with their teacher rather than physically coming to school.
Starting Jan. 25th, every Monday will be FULLY REMOTE
Going forward, ALL students (K-5) will work with their teacher ALL day (ends at 2:15 pm) remotely via Zoom on Mondays. This means that students will not be in their "A" or "B" groups as they are Tues-Friday.

Reminder- Material Pick Up on Thursday, Jan. 14tth (K-5) from 4-6 pm.
For students in grades K-5, we're asking families to pick up materials anytime between 4 - 6 pm. Even if you're planning on In-Person, please come and collect materials.
As with the previous material pickups, please enter the back parking lot and follow the signage.
Staff members will be ready to assist you by placing your materials in your trunk. Please have your child's name (first/last), grade, and teacher name is written out on a piece of paper and placed in your car window. This will make the entire process much more efficient.

Preparing for In-Person Learning
Tips for Families:
- Stick to a bedtime (make sure they're getting 8+ hours of sleep)
- Create an evening routine checklist (set an alarm, charge my device, set out my clothes)
- Create a morning routine checklist (eat my breakfast, gather all my supplies (mask included), use the restroom, etc.)
- Set an alarm for when to depart for school
- Ask your teacher which materials NEED to brought to school each day
