We have now completed three weeks of the 2020-2021 school year! I think exhausted is a great word to describe how everyone is feeling. Not only are we adjusting to the new school year, but also having to constantly adjust to make sure we’re all staying safe. New routines and procedures can take up a lot of our energy!
Please remember one change is students are not to arrive before 8:05. There is no adult supervision before that time, and thus we ask students not be dropped off. Also, students tend to not be great at physically distancing themselves from others, and for everyone’s safety it helps if we have as few students as possible waiting outside the doors.
I had predicted masks would be a big challenge this year, but I am thrilled to say I was wrong. Yes, occasionally a student is playing with his or her mask, or it slips under the nose and a reminder is needed. However, when given a reminder, students have been awesome about making the changes needed.
We will continue to work hard on making this the best, and safest, school year possible! Thank you so much for all your help and support!
