Week of July 25, 2022

School starts at 7:45 a.m. Students need to be on the blacktop at this time and teachers will walk them to class. We ask all parents to exit promptly so that we can lock the gate after the bell.

Help keep our children safe! The white curb is for drop off/pick up only (do not park and leave your car on the white curb at arrival and dismissal). Use caution when crossing the street. Right turn only onto Byrd Street when exiting the parking lot. Do not park in spaces marked “Staff”.

You’re invited to our first Coffee Chat/ELAC meeting of the school year this Friday, July 29, 8:00-9:00 a.m. in the auditorium. This is Finney’s parent meeting. It will be held in-person and also streamed via Microsoft Teams. We will be covering school programs, family involvement opportunities, including volunteer information.

Please report absences, and Covid-19 test results to finneyschool@cvesd.org. When submitting at-home negative results to return early from isolation or as proof following a close contact, write your child’s name, the date, and the time on the test and then submit a picture to finneyschool@cvesd.org. We can not accept pictures of tests without this information. Results should be checked at least 15 minutes after taking the test and no later than 30 minutes after taking the test. Results outside of this time frame are not valid.
