Our School

May 11th, 2021

Dear Families,

It has been so nice having some of our students back in the building even if it is part-time. We are gearing up to coming back in the fall with a full day model. My hope is to get students back to school every day all day. In order to make that happen we all need to work on building students’ stamina and ending strong. Please know that all cohorts have a 9-3 schedule Monday- Friday. It is important for students:

  • To be logging on in the AM at 9:00 if they are not scheduled to be in person (Cohort C every day, Cohort A Tues., Thurs., Friday, Cohort B-Mon., Wed., Friday)
  • All Cohort C login at 12:30-3:00 daily. Cohort A login on Tues. and Thurs. at 12:30
  • Cohort B login at Mon. and Wed. at 12:30. When not logged in all cohorts have independent assignments to work on from their teachers.
  • Friday is a school day. All students should be logged in at 9:00 for a class meeting and their teacher will review their assignments for the day.

If you have any confusion or questions about your child’s schedule for the remainder of this year, please reach out to your teacher, our front office, Mr. Orchard, Ms. Dolton, or myself and we are happy to meet one on one with you to go over this. I know it has been a crazy year. We have about 5 weeks left of school. Our last day of school for this year is June 17 th , 2021. This will be like a Friday where all students will log in at 9:00 for end-of-the-year closing activities.

This summer we will be hosting summer school. We will host one class per grade level K-5. Our summer school will be project-based. In the next couple of weeks, we will reach out to families for sign up. The summer school will last from July 12th -August 5th with programming being held in the morning Monday-Thursday. It is important for students who attend to commit to the full program. We will not do classes on Fridays.

Thank you for all of you support and dedication to helping your child through this challenging year. We appreciate your partnership and help. We could not have done this without your help!! I am looking forward to ending strong and starting strong in the Fall!
