Principal’s Corner

November 17, 2020


Dear Bulldog Family,

So far so good!!  We made it to November and it so refreshing to feel that short burst of cool air outside!  During the day when I talk with students, many of them are feeling extremely settled-in and more confident each day.  Although this year looks a little different for all of our Bulldogs, I am so impressed with their resiliency each day.  Our students have adapted to wearing masks, following new procedures, utilizing their technology to stay caught up and so much more.

I want to thank all of our parents and guardians who have been communicating with us about students who do not feel well, keeping their students home when they are sick, or letting us know of any situation as it relates to COVID-19.  These actions really help mitigate the effects on our students, teachers, and staff.  The kids have done tremendous at adapting to this “new normal” and I am hopeful that we will be able to return to a sense of normalcy in the near future.  We are continuing to do all we can here to ensure the facility and classrooms are as safe as possible.

As the weather outside continues to get cooler we have noticed that this has hindered our efforts of temperature checks on the bus and with our car riders.  At this time we have yet to have a student load the bus or get dropped off with a fever.  So at this time, we will discontinue the temperature checks on the bus and when entering the building, but we will continue to monitor and temp check throughout our day.  We have gained a wonderful asset and addition to our school this year, Jessica Jones our new full-time nurse.  She has done an amazing job keeping everyone informed and taking care of our students throughout the day.

We ask that all parents/guardians continue to conduct daily temperature scans prior to leaving for school in the morning and to monitor your child closely for any sign of potential illness. Should they contract a fever (over 100.4) or exhibit COVID-related symptoms, please contact their physician. During our time apart, while we celebrate with family and friends over the Thanksgiving holidays, let’s continue to be mindful of those things that have helped us to remain healthy and safe.
