Kindergarten Update

Dear Parents, October 23,2020

As we prepare for our school’s Hybrid Learning, there are some important safety rules and information that we would like to share with you. Mrs. Murray, teachers and staff have been working together diligently to plan for our safe return to school. Important information will be shared  this week and again next week before we begin our Hybrid Schedule.In addition Mrs. Murray will hold a special meeting to go over the specifications for our return.

 We will have a “dry run” on Monday, November 2nd before we begin our official reopening on Tuesday November 10th ( No School on Monday- Veteran’s Day.)

Important items for your children when they return to school:

  1. Your child should have a large enough backpack to carry all of their school supplies, folders, water bottle, snack, sweatshirt, coat, etc. to and from school.The supplies that were given to them should come back and forth to school each day. ( I.e. crayons, scissors, pencil,glue etc.) 
  2. Please try to have a child friendly easy -to- open water bottle for your child- one that they can open and close by themselves.
  3. Snacks that are easy to open would be helpful as well. Disposable and reusable containers are acceptable. Please practice with your child making sure that they can open the containers themselves. If the disposable container is left at school, it will be thrown away.
  4. Students must wear a mask at all times ( except when eating)  and have an extra mask in their backpacks in case they need another. Masks should be cleaned daily. They also need to bring a paper bag to put their mask in while they are eating. The bag will be thrown away each day.
  5. Please send a change of clothes for your child in case of emergency. Include only uniform bottoms, underwear and socks. Place in a large ziplock bag with your child’s name on it. We will keep these at school. 

Much more information about our Hybrid return to school will be in next week’s email and website.

In the next few weeks, we will begin to do some formal and informal assessment in preparation for the first report card period. The first trimester ends on November 20th and report cards will be issued after that and are standards based.Your child may be asked to orally answer questions or to complete a worksheet independently so that we may assess their skill level.

The Super Kid this week is Mrs. Hall.
