Welcome Back to School Year 2022-23
I hope that this year brings us all good health and happiness. As we enter into a brand new school year, I would like to take the time to thank each and everyone of you for your continued support as our partners in education! We are excited to start the year off by having a bookbag / school supply give away and after school sign up on Thursday, August 25th at 11:00 am in front of the school building.
The first day of school for ALL students is Monday, August 29, 2022. Students should be lined up on time in the school yard ready to enter the school building by 8:15 am. Back to School Night will be held virtually on Wednesday, September 14th from 4-6 pm. Please note that Daily attendance is taken and lateness is noted starting at 8:20 am. Absence notes are mandatory and must be submitted within (3) days of the absence. Coming to school EVERY DAY is key to your child’s academic success. We remain committed to aligning student work to grade level Common Core standards, providing feedback, enhancing our communication with students and families on academic progress and addressing any concerns that may arise in a timely fashion.
As we continue to ensure the safety of all students and staff, we will follow the CDC Guidelines outlined for COVID-19. Visitors will be limited as we continue to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We ask that parents/ guardians please be sure to send in student lunches, book bags and projects with your child in the morning in order to limit classroom disruptions to your child’s academic learning. Early dismissals will only be granted up until 2:30 pm. Students and staff will be required to wear masks in school when directed based upon Health and Safety Guidelines. This information will be shared at our School Opening Emlen Town Hall ( Date and zoom link will be provided to you by your child’s teacher) in order to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have. Our goal is to keep our students, families and staff healthy so that schools and classrooms can remain open and safe throughout the entire school year.
We ask that If your child is fully vaccinated, please send a copy of their vaccine card to the school nurse or teacher to be included in their health profile.
I’m looking forward to seeing all of you on the first day of school! Enjoy the rest of your summer. Be safe and BE KIND!
