Back to School Updates and Reminders

I have a few updates and reminders as we approach the start of school.

The district has decided that cohort A students will attend school on Tuesday, Sept 8 & Wed Sept 9.  Custodial staff will work 2nd and 3rd shift as needed to complete the deep clean before cohort B arrives on Thursday.  Please plan accordingly for your students.

Face Masks:  the district has approved the use of disposable surgical/procedure face masks and 2 or 3 layer cloth face coverings.  Gators, bandanas, and masks with vents will not be allowed.  All cohort A & B students will receive 2 cloth face coverings on their first day.

All students will be provided in school and at home tool kits which will contain the basic supplies students need.  Distance learning families may want to consider purchasing drawing paper or a sketch pad for art (we will provide some drawing paper in the toolkit), construction paper, colored pencils, and/or markers.  These are not required but may be helpful.

A reminder that Gr 1-5 full distance learning families can pick up their toolkits on Thurs, Sept 3 between 8:30-11AM and again 2-5PM.  We are also asking gr 1 families who have an iPad from the spring's distance learning bring the iPad and charging cord so they can exchange the iPad for a Chromebook.  We will need these iPads for distribution to our incoming kindergarten students.

If your child needs a device for distance learning, please contact our central office at 860-572-2100 to arrange a pick-up of a device.

Gr 1-5 Teachers will be reaching out to families over the next couple of days to have students sign in to the teachers learning management system--either SeeSaw or Google Classroom.  Please be watching for this information.  Many teachers will also post the codes to join on our website.

More information will come in the next couple of days regarding expectations for distance learning.  We also hope to provide further information regarding attendance, but we are still waiting for the attendance document from the state.
