Dear Families,

It was a busy week full of logistical details, anticipation, and lots of fun. Most students seem thrilled to be back, and so much learning is already taking place, thanks to our highly skilled and deeply committed staff. Thank you for entrusting us with your children. As educators, our job is bigger than ever, but we have the right team to meet any and all challenges that might come our way. Enjoy your long weekend! We should have perfect weather to enjoy.


Arrival goes more smoothly if students in PK-3rd grades have their Ask Ask Look logs in hand. Please help us get them in the building more quickly by helping your student with this.


Please let your child know the plan for dismissal before they enter school. For safety’s sake, 1st through 5th grade families should remain on the sidewalk. Your child’s teacher will see your sign and release your child to you. When adults enter the courtyard, it is much more difficult to maintain safe, secure conditions for dismissal. Thank you for your cooperation.

Car pool

If you are using the car pool lane on 14th Street, you should remain in your vehicle. Please make sure your child knows that they should report to car pool. Thank you!


Please send me an email at [email protected] if you aren’t receiving Remind messages from me. You can find a tutorial on using Remind here.

Back to School Night

We have changed the date of Back to School night to 9/22. Additional details will follow. We are considering a hybrid approach through which you would hear from your child(ren)’s teacher virtually but would have the opportunity to tour the facility with me, AP Phillips or Ms. Mack. Please feel free to provide any input.


We will have information about clubs to share at the end of next week.
