Dear Switlik families,
I hope your child enjoyed their first official full week of school. I want you to know how much I appreciate and treasure the ability to care for and educate your children on this new beautiful campus. We are doing all we can to provide a safe, healthy, learning environment. Please continue to practice safe and healthy behaviors and most of all keep your child home if he or she is sick.
AM Drop Off & PM Pick Up
Morning drop off and pick up is going very well. Thank you for following our guidelines and bringing your child(ren) to school at the designated grade level drop off/pick up times. We ask that you not get out of your car, instead allow staff to open the door and direct your child to the front entrance. This will help keep traffic moving. Please do not block US1, you may use both lanes that are available to you in either drop off or pick up.
As a reminder, please follow the times below.

Front Office Traffic
We must limit traffic through the front office. If your child forgets something we will do our best to accommodate their needs. To stay organized and avoid problems the next day, be sure to have your child pack their school bag the night before.
Updated bus routes are attached. Drivers are making double runs to ensure social distancing on the bus.
End of Day Dismissal Changes
As a safety precaution, we cannot make changes to your child’s end of day dismissal plan (bus and parent pickup) after 2:00 PM. If you need to make a change to your child’s dismissal plan, please contact the front office and provide the request in writing.
Progress reports will be sent home September 23rd. Please make sure to review your child progress and reach out to his/her teacher if you have any questions. The quarter will end on October 12th.
Start with Hello
Next week our school is participating in the Sandy Hook Foundation program which focuses on reducing social isolation and helping students feel connected with their friends and classmates.

Free Breakfast Lunch
There is such a thing as free breakfast and lunch! All students will have free breakfast and lunch through December. Please note, the free reduced lunch application deadline is September 30th. An approved application will ensure your child continues to receive food services after December.
I appreciate your attention to this information. Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week.
