Good Afternoon Parents & Families,

We appreciate your patience, we have been working tirelessly to gather accurate data, information, rosters, and procedures regarding the changes for next week. As of Monday, September 21st our online/virtual teachers will be as follows:

  • Kindergarten – Students who elected to stay online will remain with their current teacher.
  • 1st Grade – Mrs. Marines
  • 2nd / 3rd Grade – Mrs. Schuman
  • 4th / 5th Grade –  Ms. Menjivar
  • 5th Grade – Mrs. Gaskill
  • 6th Grade – Mrs. Range-Glenn

If your child is moving to a new classroom, your child’s new teacher will be reaching out to you in the next day or two to introduce herself. There will be a week overlap between your student’s old Google Classroom and his or her new one. You will also receive new information from the new teacher for Class Dojo.

Please note that your child will return to his or her homeroom class once they are scheduled to return to campus unless the homeroom teacher is still teaching online after October 12th. Our goal is to have 100% of our students and classrooms resume face to face as normal as possible after the end of first semester.

For those students who are currently in Mrs. Marines, Ms. Menjivar or Mrs. Gaskill’s class and returning to campus on the 21st, students will be moved to a different classroom teacher in their grade level until the original teacher is back on campus. We will notify parents and families of those students with the updated information tomorrow afternoon.

As always, please reach out if you have questions. We will do our best to answer them in a timely manner. We appreciate your patience with us, and we thank you for trusting us to educate your child.

Mike Gaddie, Principal
