Dear Families,


For those of you who drop your children off in the morning, please take a few minutes to review our procedures here. Our staff is noticing an increase in the number of parents who are bypassing the parent drop-off line and either dropping them off in the front parking lot or using the bus lane. Please know that all of these approaches could be potentially dangerous solutions to getting children out the door sooner. While we do understand that our procedures are not always as efficient as we would like, we do our best to get everyone in the building as quickly and safely as possible.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

CD Begins Recommended Masking on Tuesday

This is a copy of the message that was emailed out to all families at 11am today (Monday 2/21). We are placing this here in case you missed that message so you are aware of the masking changes at CD that begin tomorrow.


Dear Country Dale Elementary Families & Staff,


As you see reflected on this past Friday’s FPS COVID-19 dashboard here, there will be a change to the masking protocols for Country Dale this week. Beginning tomorrow (Tuesday), masks will be recommended for all 5K through 5th Grade students** at the building and not required. The details of this change are based upon the FPS COVID-19 Semester Update presented on 1/26/22 to the Board and voted upon. These changes and updates are outlined in our 1/28/22 District Newsletter here if you need to review that information.

**Please note that Early Childhood and 4K students and staff are still required to wear masks


Moving forward, if the building remains below a 1.5% 7-Day Positivity Rate, masking will continue to be recommended. If the building moves to 1.5% or above as indicated on the Friday dashboard, we will inform you of a change to required masking for the following week.


Staff members, please refer to the information you were sent on 1/28/22 regarding masking protocols and guidelines to follow.


Thank you,
FPS Communications

BRING YOUR COINS! STU CRU IS HOSTING A PENNY DRIVE FUNDRAISER

Student Council is hosting a Penny Drive. This is a fundraiser for a non-profit organization called The Right Relief which is run by a former Country Dale teacher, Mrs. Mealy. Her organization provides meals to caregivers in need in our communities. During the week of February 22nd-25th, you can bring in pennies and dollars to donate to your grade level. You can also bring in any silver coins to add to another grade level’s bucket which will count against that grade level. This is a competition! The grade level that raises the most will win a prize!
