    Dear Sacajawea Community,

    While we won’t have a full school newsletter this week, here are a few items I want to bring to your attention for next week.

    While reflecting on what I am thankful for this week, I’m thankful for this wonderful community! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend doing things that you enjoy with people you love. 

    In Partnership,

    Rachel

     

    Materials and Library Distribution Plan Week of November 30th – December 4th

    Due to the increased number of Covid-19 cases at this time, we are changing our distribution procedures for increased social distancing and enhanced safety for everyone.

    1. Distribution for Preschool students will return to personal deliveries.
    2. Distribution for students in grades K-2 will be on Thursday, December 3rd, from 3:30 – 4:30 PM
    3. Distribution for students in grades 3-5 will be on Friday, December 4th, from 3:30 – 4:30 PM

    Procedures:

    • Please drive your vehicle onto the upper playground. Everyone in your group should stay in your car.  Someone will come to your car and bring you your child’s materials and collect anything you are returning.
    • If you are not able to drive through to pick up, please contact the school office, and we will make other arrangements.
    • Please be sure to wear a mask when interacting with school staff during the distribution process.

    If you have children in more than one grade band, please come during the oldest child’s distribution. 

    If you can’t come during your child’s time, please let your teacher know. We can hold your child’s items in the office for pick up later.

    If you need your child’s items to be delivered, please let your child’s teacher know and we will arrange for delivery.

    Advanced Learning Referral Deadline

    December 7 is the last day for parents to refer their children for this year’s identification/eligibility process.

    Here’s a link to information: https://www.seattleschools.org/departments/advanced_learning

    January 15 is the last day for staff members, teachers, parents, and community members to submit the survey form. Keeping in mind the remote learning constraints and lack of data this year, it is critical that we have as many surveys completed for students referred as possible.

    • Parents and community members can access the survey form on the Advanced Learning Website or they can contact our department for support at advlearn@seattleschools.org.
