Principal's Announcement November 3, 2021

Dr. Doucette.

Good Morning Families, 

Welcome to November!  Autumn is in full swing, and we are enjoying watching the leaves change.  Today is my very favorite kind of weather – brisk and chilly! 

We will continue to have outdoor recess, so be sure to send a jacket and hat with your child each day.  If you need assistance with getting cold weather gear for your child, please contact our school social worker, Barrie Massey  

This Week:  B2S Night Parades

Please join us this week for our Back-to-School Night drive through parade.  Students and their families will drive through this exciting event to wave hello at our Patriot teachers and staff.  Your family is encouraged to decorate your vehicle -- or create a sign to say hello!

COVID Information: 

If your child is ill, please don’t send them to school.  If they test positive for COVID-19, please call the school at 540-372-1115 and keep them at home.  If your child is waiting for test results, please keep them home as well.  Please, call the school if someone in your home has tested positive for COVID or if your child has been exposed and keep them at home until you speak with our team.  

If your child has to stay home due to quarantine or isolation, please call us.  We will be sure your child has work from school, their laptop/ipad, and that they are enrolled in our virtual learning experience “Second Shift Teaching”.  A second shift teacher will zoom with your student after-school hours.  Let your child’s teacher know if you need more information on Second Shift, if your child must stay home due to COVID-19.  

Please, be sure your child’s teacher and our office have THREE daytime phone numbers in case we need to reach you during the day.  It is sometimes necessary for us to connect with you right away.   

Please, see our divisions protocols here (and on the website)
