Spencer Elementary Families: Parent Teacher Conference is this Thursday evening, September 17, from 3:30-7:00pm. -Parents/guardians MUST have a scheduled appointment to attend Parent Teacher Conference for SES students. If you are not able to attend in person, you may schedule a phone conference with your student’s teacher. If you have not yet made an appointment, please contact your child's teacher. If you have a confirmed scheduled appointment with a teacher, you should have received an email or communication from the teacher to let you know your appointment time. -We encourage everyone attending the Parent Teacher Conference to practice social distancing. -If you are doing an in person conference, we ask that you remain in your car until 3-4 minutes before your conference time. -Your temperature will be taken as you enter the building. -We will only be allowing parents in the building at their conference time. -We ask that you leave the building quickly after your conference to reduce the number of visitors in the building. -Please understand that conference times are being restricted to 5 MINUTES in order to minimize risk of exposure to those who may be unaware that they are positive for COVID. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
Parents we are excited to welcome your students back into our building tomorrow for the first day of school. We have a few reminders regarding the beginning of this school year. Please send a note with your child tomorrow that tells your child’s teacher if they will be parent pick up or a bus rider. If they are riding a bus and you do not know the bus driver, please include the address they will be dropped off. Remember an adult must be visible for a student to be allowed off of the bus. We will not be allowing parents and visitors in the building this year without an appointment due to the current situation with Covid-19. Parents will not be allowed to walk their students into the building in the morning in order to keep all students safe. School personnel will be available to help your child get their supplies to their classroom. Parent drop off will not begin until 7:30 a.m. this year. Student arrival is 7:30-8. We will be doing temperature checks before your students enter the building. Please remain in the drive until your child has been cleared to enter. Parent pick up is from 2:50-3:15 each afternoon. Please do not arrive early and block traffic. Nurse Beverly will be set up in front of SES tomorrow to collect medicine and forms that she needs for those students who take medications at school. Parents dropping off medicine will need to park in the parking lots near the road and walk up the sidewalk to Nurse Beverly. We will not be able to allow parents to bring outside food or drink for birthday parties or celebrations this year due to Covid-19.
