Dear Bobcat Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  We are excited for our Bobcats to re-enter the building!  Throughout the year, we’re certain you’ll find influential learning experiences and memorable moments.  We look forward to sharing them with you.  A significant investment has been made to plan for students — addressing student safety, meeting emotional needs, and bridging academic gaps.  We are excited to join you on this next chapter of your child’s education.  

Your child’s classroom assignment will be available in Skyward by Tuesday, August 31. Based on on-going, fluctuating enrollment, class assignments could change.

Just as we did last year, your child will receive a welcome video from his/her teacher prior to the first day of school. The video replaces our usual “Open House” event which had to be cancelled due to COVID safety protocols.  

Thank you in advance for your understanding as we monitor and adjust procedures to meet the evolving needs of our school community. We continue to monitor and apply guidance related to Covid-19.  For your convenience, we have included a quick reference chart for sharing current safety COVID protocols. You’ll note that several protocols from last year have been adjusted or no longer apply.

To prepare for the school year as a P-5 campus, our main hallways and many classrooms were recarpeted.  Our specials classes (Art, Music, PE) have relocated to the former middle school — along with our intermediate special education program and Academic Learning Center (formerly Life Skills).

Please be sure to thoroughly review the Elementary website for announcements and required paperwork for the opening of school.  Supply lists can also be found on our school website.  The Elementary School office will open to the public on Wednesday, August 25.

We are back again in the building to start the school year!  

Best regards, Mike Nolan, PK-2 Principal              Greg Hall, 3-5 Principal
