Face-to Face Instruction:
This week, we saw some students return to school for face to face instruction. It was wonderful to see students in our building and on the playgrounds! As we move forward into week 2, we ask that families look for communication from their classroom teacher as some schedules may change. We had some groupings with only one student in them and so we are combining in a few places so they can have at least one other peer to connect with at school. For all other students, remote learning will continue.
Important Health Check information for families with children attending school:
It is extremely important that students are healthy when arriving at school. It is required that parents complete a health check of their child daily before sending them to school. If your child has any of the following flu or Covid-19 like symptoms,
- shortness of breath
- sore throat and painful swallowing
- stuffy or runny nose
- loss of sense of smell
- muscle aches
- loss of appetite
they must stay home from school for 10 days unless cleared by your doctor or by calling 811.
If a student arrives with, or develops symptoms at school, they will be isolated and parents will be contacted for pickup.
Welcome to Kindergarten:
While we have been unable to host our annual Welcome to Kindergarten event, we are busy working on a virtual experience to share with our families. Stay tuned as it is coming soon!
Ready, Set, Learn:
Under normal circumstances, we host a Ready, Set, Learn event for children aged 3 and 4 and their caregivers, who will be attending Coyote Creek in the coming years. It is an opportunity for us to share some, “Get ready for school” activities and connect families with community services such as our local public library. If you know of any children aged 3 and 4 in our community, please share the following link full of activities and community connections with their families. Thank you!
Grade 7 Leaving Ceremony:
While we cannot host a big event in the gym, we are working to create a special good-bye for our grade 7 students. We will be hosting a drive-thru procession on the evening of Wednesday, June 17th for our grade 7 students and will share our Leaving Ceremony Video with all students on the evening of June 18th.
We will continue to schedule supply pickups, weather permitting on Wednesdays when we have staff available to run our drive-thru pick-ups. Teachers will send out schedule information for these pickups. As we work to practice social distancing, it is important to attend during your pick up window. Thank you for your understanding.
