Sunday Message 9/19

Tomorrow is a Day Two with students attending Advisory followed by periods 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Our VIRTUAL Back to School Night is Tuesday, September 21 starting at 6:30PM. On Friday in Advisory, students filled out a schedule sheet, like the one attached to this message, for you to use to take a virtual trip through their classes. Please see the sheet for detailed directions. Virtual Back To School Night Directions. Once you are in Schoology and a class, you will click on the Back to School meeting link. This link should be at the top of each teacher’s Schoology class page.

A virtual PTSA meeting will be held prior to Back to School Night Tuesday at 6PM. A meeting link is included in this message. PTSA Meeting

For those of you who choose to pick up your child from school, it is important that you stay in your car and follow the flow of traffic. Please DO NOT flag your student down to come to you. Just like a traditional carpool line, cars pull forward in the line and wait their turn for loading. There is a staff member there to direct the carpool line. Please be sure to follow their direction. Thank you for helping us make dismissal run as smoothly as possible.

Early dismissal pick-up should be planned to occur no later than 2:30PM. Students will not be called to the office prior to your arrival. Please make sure you have your photo ID.

This week and the week of September 27, your child will take Virginia Growth Assessments. Please see the attached letter for more information. Virginia Growth Assessments Information

Moving forward, COVID related community emails will not be sent on a case by case basis. This data will be shared each Sunday as part of my weekly message.The number of positive cases and number of close contacts will be shared as they are available.

As Walt Whitman once said, “Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.” Stay positive Raiders and let your light shine. I am looking forward to another great week. Have a good evening.
