From the Principal’s Desk:
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Happy New Year! I hope each of you had a wonderful holiday break and are ready for the cold weather that is promised to come in the next couple of months.
In looking ahead, we would like to ask our families to be mindful of re-establishing the necessary routines, whether we are virtual or in-person, to ensure that your students are in attendance on either Google Meets/Virtual Learning or in the classroom and are on-time every morning to get each school day off to a great start. Once we return to in-person instruction, we would also ask our families to continue to be mindful of early dismissal habits as well. Although there are times when an occasional early dismissal is necessary for an appointment or urgent family need, early dismissals should be minimal as this loss of instructional time can certainly affect a student’s performance. As always, we appreciate your support as our teachers and students strive to maximize their instructional time shared each day.
January and February typically bring us snow days. When we are in school, our students will go outside for recess if at all possible, but we won’t go out if it’s too cold or raining. Make sure your child is dressed for cold weather so they can play outside and get some fresh air.
Also, please make sure that your child remembers the drop off procedures in the mornings when we return to in-person instruction. Have them ready to exit the vehicle at the first concrete block and please remember that the drop-off doors close at 7:55. This will help so much with the traffic.
In closing, I want to thank all of our families for everything you are doing to support our students and teachers. I know these are very unprecedented times that we are facing, but we will get through this together. Hopefully we can get back to some type of “normalcy” very soon and look forward to an amazing second semester here at Church Hill Elementary School!
Hope Malone, Principal
