Week of August 2, 2021

Please join us for our Virtual English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)/Coffee with the Principal meeting Friday, August 6th at 8:30 a.m. via Teams. Just click on this link to join. We will record the meeting and post afterward. Topics will include Covid-19 safety and parent participation at school.

Dismissal: We are staggering dismissal times for some grades to reduce crowding in the main hallway. Starting Monday, August 2, Kindergarten students in Mrs. Haase’s & Mrs. Gillespie’s classes will dismiss at 2:00 Monday-Thursday and at 12:45 on Fridays and other minimum days. 1st and 2nd grade students in Rooms 302, 303, 304 and 305 will dismiss at 2:10 Monday-Thursday and 12:55 on Fridays (5 min. before the bell).

Arrival: Students line up with their class on the blacktop and teachers pick them up at the 7:45 bell. Per current CVESD rules, “Parents are expected to leave campus immediately following dropping off or picking up their child”. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep everyone safe.

Breakfast is served 7:15-7:40. Students eating breakfast before school may enter through the cafeteria gate. If your child is not eating breakfast at school, they should not arrive before 7:35. If you need to drop your child off earlier, YMCA STRETCH provides FREE before-school care at Finney.

Please follow all posted signs and staff instructions.

Screen your child for Covid-19 symptoms each day before school.

Students and staff are required to wear masks when indoors and may remove masks outdoors.

If your child has any pre-existing conditions, including those with Covid-like symptoms (e.g. allergies, asthma), please provide documentation from the doctor so that we can have it on file. This will help prevent your child from being sent home if they have symptoms from a chronic condition.

Label lunch boxes, water bottles, and sweaters with your child’s name!
