Dear Superstar Families,
On Monday, we welcome back our 3rd graders in Ms. Mehta and Mr. Magana’s classes. We are very excited!
Please remember that there is no school during Spring Break, April 12-16. The week following Spring Break, April 19-23, will be a remote learning week. During this week, hybrid students will engage in remote learning from their homes and follow the remote schedule. During this week, synchronous learning will be from 8-11am, lunch from 11-12, and asynchronous/small group learning from 12-2:30pm. Please note that BOOST will be in-person during this week.
Masks on Campus: Our Building Safety Team would always like to remind parents and adults to wear masks while on campus, even waiting outside at pick-up. If you are not wearing a mask, you will be asked to put on a mask or handed one by our staff. Thank you for keeping everyone safe while on campus.
Pick-Up at the Stevenson Bell: A reminder to families who walk or park their car and walk up must pick up their child at the Stevenson bell. Teachers walk the “loop” at dismissal and dismiss students to the busses first, then walking/waiting parents at the bell, then they dismiss to families in their cars. Parents will be asked to stand at the bell by our staff if they are waiting in other locations at dismissal.
Materials Pick-Up: Please check with your child’s teacher to see if you have materials to pick up this Wednesday April 7th. Please pick materials up at the STEM room door anytime between 8:00-2:30pm on 4/7. For families who cannot pick-up on Wednesday, Ms. Evelyn will have bins outside the main doors of the school with your child’s name and teacher name on them for pick-up during school hours.
Technology Support Updates for Students and Families: With most hybrid students returning to school buildings soon, most in-person tech support will shift back to schools. The Tech Specialists look forward to reconnecting with their school communities. Beginning April 8, the Tech Center at Highland Middle School will be closed and no longer available to families.
In-Person Tech Support: Starting April 8, there will be in-person tech support at schools and at our central office. Tech support for all elementary students attending school in-person will be available at their school during their school day. Virtual students needing in-person support can visit the new Elementary Student Tech Center at the Wilburton Instructional Service Center (WISC).
