Students and Parents,
We are so excited to welcome each of you back to a new and exciting school year! We have been working hard this summer to ensure that school is safe for students, teachers, and parents. I want to draw your attention to some important information as we begin school next Tuesday, Aug 25, 2020.
- Teacher assignments should be available on Skyward by the end of the week.
- Our Virtual Back to School Night will be held Monday, Aug 24th. Please check our website for teacher videos and information. You are welcome to contact your child’s teacher via phone, email, or Zoom on Monday from 3pm-5pm.
- Chromebook Check-out for students learning exclusively online will be this Friday, Aug 21st. Check your email for sign up times.
- Our School Reopening Plan is located on our school website. Parents, please take time read this plan before school starts. School Plan
What items should I be prepared to send with my child to school?
- The governor has ordered everyone on school property to wear a mask. While face shields may be used, the order specifically states that masks are required. Please send 2 masks to school with your child. If you feel your child qualifies for a medical exemption from wearing a mask see the following link. Mask Exemption Request
- Students are responsible to manage their masks at school. See link for ideas to manage your child’s mask. Ideas for Mask Management
- Please send a labeled water bottle with your child to school. Drinking fountains and sinks may be used to refill water bottles, but we are asking students to not drink directly from the fountains. We discourage sending ice in the bottles as the condensation on the bottles tends to make a mess on the students’ desks. Paper cups will be provided in classrooms for students without water bottles.
- Please use a disposable lunch sack if you plan to send a lunch from home. This will be much more sanitary than reusable lunchboxes.
Procedural Changes This Year:
- Safe Walking Route (See this link from our school website)
- Drop-off and pick-up procedures have changed. The district has required that our north drop-off loop be used for buses only. Please see this link from our school website.
- Students will be asked to line up with their classes on orange dots that are spaced 2 feet apart on the playground. Large painted numbers are on the ground indicating where grade levels will line up. Each grade will enter and exit grade level doors. (See Link)
- Check-in and Check-out procedures have changed. This year parents will not need to enter the building as part of this process. (See Link)
We are excited to be reunited with each of you! Our theme this year is “Better Together”. We truly feel like we are better together and look forward to seeing your students back at school on Tuesday.
