There will be a mandatory meeting Wednesday night at 6 PM in the auditorium for parents that have chosen the VIRTUAL option of school. If you plan for your child to complete his/her daily class work at home, you will need to be present at the meeting this Wednesday. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
I want to answer a few common questions that I am receiving. (1) Do we need anything from a doctor for our child to return to school? (2) Why is a black sock on the supply list? (3) Do we need to go ahead and put the supplies in the student’s pencil pouch? (4) Will students bring all of the supplies when they go back, or will parents drop supplies off at the school? Answers: (1) A doctor’s note is needed for anyone that is NOT to wear a mask when traveling at school. (2) The black sock is used as an eraser at their desk when using dry-erase markers. (3 & 4) I will meet with teachers August 6-12 and we will publish a plan concerning supplies that we agree works best for students, parents, and teachers at that time.
There will be no open house this year. The online registration process is required for ALL students by July 24th. This will allow you the opportunity to complete forms electronically that are handed out the first day or at Open House.
Parents must register all students online this school year by July 24th. Please use this link: https://sites.google.com/parkerschapelschool.com/pcreg/home
