            • I learned on Friday that students will need to bring their books and materials plus their devices back and forth to school when we move to the hybrid model. We will not be ordering or purchasing a second set of books and materials nor devices for the students.


            • Parent/Teacher Conferences: They will be held next month as usual. There are some subs available but this is not guaranteed as in normal times because the pool is smaller this year. If you want to use a sub please book in advance of your conferences. Also, if you do your conferences outside of your work day, keep a log and the district will compensate your time. Please let me know if you have any questions.


            • In case you didn't see this information on the Superintendent's Update last Friday:
            Overall community pulse survey results
            Results from families that have not yet made a decision about returning to in-person instruction
