Welcome Parents and students

August 19, 2020

Dear Parents and Students,

I hope that you and your family had a safe summer break.

I am very excited to be returning to Selman Elementary School as your ECSE teacher and case manager this year. I am pleased that Gail Brown and Patty Paredes will return as our Paraprofessionals. We are anxious to begin this school year and we look forward to seeing all of you. We will be practicing Covid safety protocol as necessary in our classroom. I will be wearing a face shield at all times in my classroom while teaching. This will enable our students to see my face while safety can be maintained. Frequent hand sanitizing and hand washing will be a part of our day routine as well.

Please keep informed of SealyISD safety protocol and important notices by checking our web site at

Many fun filled engaging learning experiences are ahead!!!

I will be sending home a communication log which I would like for you to read and sign daily. You can make notes to me on the log as well.

Please see the attached supply list, and classroom forms to be completed. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions regarding any of this material.

If you have any other questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to call me. You can reach me by calling Selman Elementary School at 979-885-6659. If you would also like to have my cell phone number, please let me know.

It is truly a privilege to have your child in my class. GO TIGERS!

Sincere Regards,

Melissa L. Ford, Teacher/Case Manager
