What a wonderful SUPER FRIDAY spring semester we are having, now that we have all thawed out from the crazy freeze! Just a few notes and reminders as we spring forward!
This coming Friday, March 19 is spring break, so we do NOT have Super Friday this week. I hope and pray that you and your families enjoy the beautiful warm weather and some time to relax. We return to Super Friday on March 26, then we will be off on April 2 for Good Friday. Then we’ve got the next four Fridays to finish off our semester.
Several of you have reached out with questions regarding Covid protocols. At Super Friday, we will complete our remaining 5 weeks following the policies and protocols already in place, as these are what we registered with. Governor Abbot and CDC both still recommend wearing masks when social distancing is not possible, so we will continue to require masks for everyone age 10 and up when entering, exiting and moving through the building, and when classroom activities do not allow for social distancing. We will also continue to disinfect and hand wash as much as possible to provide a safe and clean environment. We will certainly review and revise our policies over the summer break and have a new plan in place before registration for Fall 2021 opens.
I have also heard from several parents regarding pickup procedures at the end of the day. For the best possible safety and security of our students, we will continue to use the car pickup line moving forward. Overall, this is much more secure and efficient than having parents come in to pick up. However, we are going to make some tweaks to our system after spring break to help make everyone’s Friday pickup a little smoother and quicker. This will include letting parents of both EC and OC children pick up in ONE line and providing a separate pickup point for those who would prefer to park and walk up (or walk from home) rather than using the car line. We are working out the details, so watch your email in the next week!
We are so very thankful that we can gather together each week for Super Friday and for the cooperation of both staff and families that has made these two challenging semesters such a success! Enjoy your spring break. :o)
