Last Minute Details for the start of school...

posted Sep 15, 2020, 7:23 AM by Amy Belhumeur


  • Students will be getting technology during orientation if it was requested through the technology department.  Because not all students will have access right away we will NOT be doing remote check ins the first two days of orientation. We also will not be penalizing students for attendance those two days.  I have asked the teachers to send out info on assignments for students to work on if they are remote those days and also to send out a copy of the schedule so students know what to expect.  Please reach out to your child's individual teacher(s) with any questions (some teacher assignments, especially in grade 6, changed this week.  This should be updated in powerschool now).  
  • When students arrive tomorrow and Thursday, they will be directed to where they need to go to meet their teachers.  Grade 5 will be going to the Cafeteria and grades 6 and 7 to the auditorium.  We have staged both areas to be socially distant and safe for them in the morning. 
  • Parent drop off starts at 7:20am this year.  This is to stagger students entering the building.  Please adhere to this to help us keep students safe.  Please see the parent drop off and pick up information in my last email or in the electronic backpack.  Dismissal is at 2:12pm. 
  • Students only need their own device (if they have it), lunch, and maybe a notebook and and writing materials for the first two days of school.  No need to bring everything in for orientation.  All students will be getting a planner.
  • Students will come home from orientation with the tools they need to do remote learning the next few weeks.  Teachers will be showing them how to log in, how to navigate google classroom, and also giving them any hard copy materials they may need. 



  • Teachers:
  • Grade 5: Mrs. Doray and Mrs. Hornbaker
  • Grade 6: Mr. Moriarty and Mrs. Racicot
  •   Grade 7:  Mrs. Blood (ELA), Mrs. Kniskern (Science), Mrs. Grzembski (Math), Mrs. Curtis (History)


  • They should be sending you all the information and schedules and how to log in.  If you did not get information please reach out to them directly.  
  • If you were not able to pick up materials today for your remote learning, please contact Miss Belhumeur.


We are so excited to see your students tomorrow and Thursday!!  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out!!
