From the Principal
I am very pleased to announce that students will return to school full time, Monday through Friday, for the 2021-2022 school year. Therefore, there will be no hybrid or fully virtual options available. Thank you for your partnership in helping to make this a successful school year. Our top priority is staying healthy and in school every day!
There will no longer be a daily attestation form from Operoo, so please remember, in the event your child shows signs and symptoms of illness, I ask that you keep them home and notify our attendance secretary, Kari Kresback, at 627-4420 to report the absence.
Based on our experience during the 20-21 school year, we are again in anticipation of a high volume of parent drop-off traffic. Please make every effort to arrive early enough for your child to get to class on time. All students should be in their homeroom by 7:37. I highly recommend that you plan to drop off between 7:25 and 7:30 so that the high volume of cars that seems to become problematic after 7:30 will not impact your child getting to class on time. Students will be marked unexcused late to class unless the reason for their late arrival is directly due to a bus arriving late or another unavoidable scenario such as documented appointment, weather, or traffic issue outside of our drop-off line. To review all of our attendance procedures and protocols, please use this link: Attendance Procedures for 2021-2022
I am looking forward to a wonderful new school year and hope that you and your family have an enjoyable and relaxing Labor Day weekend.
The 8 th grade yearbooks have arrived!
In order for your eighth grade student to receive a yearbook, they must have submitted a completed Acceptable Use Policy Form (AUP) and returned all of their textbooks, novels and/or library books, as well as any athletic uniforms or equipment. If you ordered a yearbook for a student in grades 5-7, you may also pick up your yearbook during the pick-up times above.
A special thanks to the PTA for providing yearbooks for the eighth grade students once again this year.
