District Update 5-5-20

Dear Bulldog Parents and Guardians,

I want to start by thanking you again for your support, patience and understanding as we've attempted to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. As we begin wrapping up this truly unique school year, we still have a few items we need to address, such as students picking up personal belongings and returning school owned band instruments, textbooks, library books, Chromebooks and Verizon hotspots. Please see the dates and procedures listed below for each campus.

Again, I thank you for supporting our teachers and our district as a whole. We are already looking forward to August with the hopes that we will get to see our students in person, return to normalcy, and love and support our kids in any way possible.

Elementary Schedule
Parents will be allowed to enter the building to go to their student's classroom or locker to collect their child's belongings. No more than ten people will be allowed in the building at one time. If a line forms at the front doors, please remain in your car until the line goes down if possible and then follow social distancing guidelines and adhere to the markings on the sidewalk. If your child has a school owned band instrument, textbook, library book, Chromebook or Verizon hotspot please bring it to the school to be returned at that time. In order to cut down on the number of people at the school at one time, please adhere to the following schedule. If you have children in multiple grade levels, you may collect all the items at one time. You do not have to make multiple trips to the school. If you cannot make it to any of the dates listed below, please contact your principal to make special arrangements.

It saddens me the school year had to end this way. However, it's still a great day to be a Bulldog!!! We will overcome this and the 2020-2021 school year will be the best ever.

We are here if you need anything. I hope you and your families have a safe and healthy summer. GO BULLDOGS!!!
