It has been wonderful seeing students back in the building again and we are so lucky because we get four chances to have first days this year! Our 7th and 8th graders did an outstanding job acclimating to the new procedures. I cannot tell you how fun it was to watch a group of students — none of whom had ever met in person before — eat lunch at their desks and laugh, chat and connect. It was truly energizing.
As we prepare for all of our blended learning students to return next week, we would like to ensure that we have updated Dismissal Plan Information as well as adequate Emergency Contact Information for each student. It is customary to complete both of these forms as a part of student's back to school paperwork, however, we wanted to expedite the process this year so that we have this information to begin the year with.
Please take a moment this week to complete the following form. We would appreciate having this information by end of day Monday, October 19, so teachers can be sure that students know their dismissal plan for next week. Even if your student is currently committed to the Distance Learning option, please take a moment to complete this form so that we may update our information.
This form will be used by Spencer Center to determine your child's daily dismissal plan for each day of the week. You will also be provided with the opportunity to add Emergency Contacts for your child. We will always contact the parent and/or guardian first, and will begin reaching out to emergency contacts in the order they are listed, if you cannot be reached. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, our nurse will be sending students home who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or who have a fever of 100.4 or greater. It is vitally important that we have several individuals we can contact on behalf of each student, in the event of illness. Please consider this when filling out the form above.
Thank you for your partnership and we look forward to welcoming back more students in the days to come.
