Mask Expectations: Teachers work with students on when to take off. Appropriate times includ when behind shield, snack, lunch, etc.
Meet the Teacher: This year we are offering a virtual Meet the Teacher on Thursday, August 27th. You will offer three virtual times that parents can join. The times are: 10:00am, 12:30pm or 5:00pm. You will send an email on Wednesday, August 26th with the link to the Google Meets virtual meeting. There will be three Google Meets to choose from, but tell parents to only choose one. During this virtual meeting, you will share information about expectations and procedures. There will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions. This will be a great way to "meet" your kids and parents and for them to learn about you.
A/B Schedules: Our district is going to start the first four weeks of school on an A/B schedule. That means that if their last name begins with an A-K then they will come to school on 'A' days and if their last name begins with L-Z then they will come to school on 'B' days. So, Monday August 31st will be the first day of school for our 'A' students and Tuesday, September 1st will be the first day for our 'B' students. The pattern will continue each week. For example, if a child comes to school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, then the following week they will come on Tuesday and Thursday. On September 28th, all students will return to school on the same day.
Important School Information: Our school doors open daily at 7:05 and instruction begins at 7:45. When students arrive to school, they will walk straight to their classroom and stay in their classrooms and begin their morning routines.
There will be no parents allowed in the building which includes volunteers, PTO, School Improvement members or Watch D.O.G.S.
Extracurricular activities, clubs, and field trips are postponed indefinitely.
