Dear Lower School Families,
Your children have now completed two weeks of school, and we look forward to all students in the Lower School being on campus beginning Tuesday, September 8. Your children have been very adept at learning many new protocols these past two weeks and, even though they have only been on campus a few days, they have shown their enthusiasm and engagement while in class and in taking their learning outside.
Routines take time to learn, and we ask for your patience in both the morning dropoff and afternoon pickup as we will have all 479 students being dropped off and picked up each day. Preparing your children for efficient dropoffs is greatly appreciated (masks on, backpacks zipped up, goodbyes said). A reminder that Grade 5 dropoff is at the Fieldhouse, but the afternoon pickup is in the main carline. Please have your name placards clearly visible to help us in identifying your cars.
Until we are up and running with our new SchoolPass app system, we continue using the paper-and-pencil method for our Health Screening Form. All students entering the school must have this form completed before coming to school. Please use the white sheets each morning. If you forget, we will provide forms and take your children’s temperatures in the carline.
Students are getting used to wearing their masks. Please make sure your children have a few extra clean masks at school each day. We have extras, when needed, but likely not as comfortable as the ones your children are used to wearing.
The new dates for the Lower School Back-to-School Nights are October 5-6. Both nights will be on Zoom and begin at 6:30 p.m. An opening general session will be followed by homeroom class presentations. Links will be sent closer to those dates.
6:30 p.m. Welcome from Mr. Hansen and General Information
7:00 p.m. Homeroom Teacher Information
