Wamsutta Family Update 09/25/2020
Posted on 09/25/2020

Staff and students continue to do a great job with all the new routines and practices designed to keep everybody as safe as possible.  I am hoping the sanitizing, one-way traffic, mask breaks, and all the other stuff that is entirely new to us as a school begins to become more automatic for everyone, so we can stop thinking about it and focus on the real task at hand, the academic and social growth of our students.

COVID REMINDERS

I’ve sent the parent COVID letter and home checklist from our nurses before, but both have been updated slightly.  Please read them.

UPDATE:  BREAKFAST/LUNCH

We are still not seeing great breakfast participation.  Breakfast is available for free every day.  Students need to go to the nurse/gym entrance at 7:45. 

In terms of lunch, please know that it is available free every day, and that when students get their lunch, they are provided with a separate, pre-bagged breakfast for the next day.  Some kids are eating it with their lunch, which is fine I suppose, but I wanted to make sure everyone knows that students are receiving it.

AVA students can pick up breakfast and lunch at the High School from 11-1 Monday through Friday.

Menus can be found here.  

SECOND NOTICE:  PTO

We have scheduled Tuesday, September 29 at 6:30 as our first meeting.  It will be virtual.  If you would like an invite, please email our President, Lenora Cook, at bnlkcook@gmail.com.  We are hoping we have lots of attendees, but not so many we crash zoom.  We’ll see how it goes.

SECOND NOTICE:  REMIND EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION

Almost all my communication with you will be via email.  Wamsutta now has a remind account as well, and I realize the emails and reminds are tough to keep up with.  I am going to use the school remind account for urgent messaging only.  This would be for really time sensitive stuff:  COVID news, a bus accident, an unplanned evacuation, or the like.  That’s it.  So I hope everyone signs up here

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT

We are working on creating a virtual evening for you to meet with your child’s teachers.  There are lots of logistical issues to figure out, but we will do something.  Stay tuned.
