Alcott Back to School Reminders

Alcott Back to School Reminders
Posted on 08/26/2021

Good afternoon Alcott School Community,

With only days from our start to the school year, I wanted to provide additional information for your review.  

The new district guidelines regarding mask wearing has been updated to include the use of masks at all times (in and out of classrooms).  

I am including the following district message below:

As we prepare for a safe start to the new school year, we will continue to update our policies and procedures, as new information becomes available. Today, we are updating our policy on the wearing of masks. We are strengthening the policy in light of the continued presence of the Covid-19 virus in our community.

The new policy is as follows:

Masks are always required indoors. Masks are now required outdoors at all times while students are on campus, unless they are eating. Currently, large-scale events are not recommended for any school sites due to the increased risk of exposure. 

We highly encourage students to take mask breaks outdoors. During these breaks students should maintain 6 feet distance from each other. Wearing masks outdoors lessens the likelihood of student exposure and allows more students to qualify for a modified quarantine.  

Masks may be removed outdoors in certain situations and with certain distancing recommendations during physical education, athletics and performing arts programs.

Monday Reminders:

  • Students will line up at assigned areas that will be identified by one of four Sky Dancers (colors will be assigned and shared with families prior to Sunday evening).  You may arrive for line-up at 8:00 a.m.
  • At 8:15 teachers and staff will enter the campus through the main gate.  I know how tough it is to leave your children at the gate; however, parents and family members will not be allowed to enter the campus due to COVID precautions.
  • Refer to my earlier email that included the family guide with information on Day 1 preparations.  All childen must have a mask to enter school.  If you need a mask, please visit the front office.  We will have extras for students and staff.
  • Dismissal protocols are also listed in the handbook:  Teachers will be dismissing all students at the main gate and ensuring that the parent/guardian contact is made prior to releasing students.  (M, T, TH, F: 2:45; Wed. 12:45)
  • We will be following strict COVID Protocols to minimize our risk this school year.  The protocols we have in place are listed in the parent guide/handbook.

I am honored to be your school principal and on behalf of our entire Alcott Staff, Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year!

Principal Lewis
