Protocols for returning to school:
This year has started like no other in history. We are settling into our new routines here at the building, as I hope you are doing at home. All students should be working on their school work daily. Teachers are still looking for students to engage in the live sessions and to show this engagement by doing and submitting their assignments. We understand that not all students can "attend" class at the assigned time due to technology or other constraints, but teachers have planned for this so all students should be able to complete their work. Grades are to be posted in Power School weekly. This is a great place for families to review student progress together!
We are also preparing for students to join us in the building on the A/B schedule. This begins the week of September 21st. Students with last names A-L attend school Mondays and Tuesdays. Students with last names M-Z attend Thursday and Friday. There have been some exceptions to this based on families with high schoolers, but you should have that information already. You can check your bus stop and time on the district homepage. Scroll down towards the bottom and click on "Bus Routes & Info."
We'll start putting out Q and A's for return to school - just a few at a time, to help you prepare your student for a safe and successful return to the building.
First and foremost, I want to stress the importance of wearing a mask, social distancing, and hand washing. These three things alone go a long way to keeping us all safe. These are expectations for the entire school day, from arrival to school to arrival at your bus stop or in your family car.
Our staff is available to assist you in any way we can. Please reach out if you need us. We miss you and can't wait to be all together!
