Dear Families, 

         Can you believe we will be back in the building and doing teaching and learning in two weeks!! I am so excited to see our students and staff in action.  School starts on 9/7/21. We will be doing a staggered start the first week of school. You will be getting a letter explaining the first week back and other general information about school. The letter will also have a sticker on it with your child’s new teacher. The school day will be 9:00AM-3:30PM. On Sept. 15th we will start our first late start Wednesday. Everything is just pushed out one hour. Plan on a 10:00AM start for every Wednesday, beginning September 15th.  

         All students will have free lunch and breakfast this year. Students may bring their own lunch as well. Please make sure all lunch boxes and backpacks are labeled with your child’s first and last name. 

         If your child needs to ride the bus you will need to go into Website to enter information for your student.  This will give you the route information for your student(s).  Here is a link for you to do this.  Click here to login and to find your student’s bus information. Classroom teachers will be reaching out to families next week to see if you have questions about things and to introduce themselves. We look forward to seeing you soon! Please check the mail as you should receive your letter by Friday of this week. 


Kellie M. Burkhardt, Principal
