Dear Evergreen Parents and Guardians,

I hope that this communication finds you well.  We are all looking forward to the start of the school year on September 8.  Thank you to those who have reached out to me with welcomes, questions, and feedback on our effort to open the school year.  Thank you also, to those families who reached out to clarify their learning model preferences for the school year. 

Updated Calendar of Events
9/2 and 9/3 - RESCHEDULED Grab and Go
9/2 at 12:00 p.m. - ParentVue Opens with finalized class lists
9/2 in the afternoon - Kindergarten Orientation Parent Communication and Parent Sign-Up
9/8 - First day of school (virtual environment)
9/8 and 9/9 - Kindergarten Orientation

Synergy ParentVue
Synergy ParentVue will open up to families on Wednesday, September 2 at 12:00 p.m. I understand that the parent view was inadvertently opened to families when the secondary schedules went live. That was a mistake.   Please understand that class placements are continually being revisited. At noon next Wednesday you will be able to see the finalized lists.   

Here are links to schedule layouts

For the half day hybrid schedule (For those students whose families chose to have their students return in a half day hybrid option.)
Full day Virtual Schedule (Only for those students whose families chose virtual for the year.)

Change of Date Grab and Go
The Grab and Go dates are being shifted in date so that Grades 1-3 will pick up on Wednesday, September 2, and Grades 4 and 5 will pick up Thursday, September 3.  The time for both days remains 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Why the change?  Since the Board’s approval of the ½ day schedule we have been working to refine class lists so that students maintain a consistent teacher no matter which learning model a family has chosen.  We want families to know their class assignments prior to Grab and Go pick up.  Along with this, we are waiting for a few ordered supplies to arrive and be packed into the bags and want to avoid asking parents and guardians to come out for a second round of pick-ups. 

Any parents who completed the Chromebook request form will pick up their device at the grab and go.

As has been the theme in 2020, I truly appreciate your flexibility in these very unique times. 

Kindergarten Orientation Update 
Kindergarten orientation is Tuesday, September 8 and Wednesday, September 9.  During orientation students will get to meet their teachers, pick up their grab and go bag (including their device) and learn about the kindergarten programming. 

We will be following the District Safety Guidelines.  Therefore, we will practice social distancing with all participants expected to wear a mask.  Also, students can be accompanied by one parent or guardian. 

I intend to send a separate communication to kindergarten families on Wednesday, September 3 in the afternoon.   This communication  will include a link to a sign-up genius so that parents can sign up for their selected time. 

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend,

Ryan Stanson-Marsh
Interim Principal
Evergreen Elementary School
