It’s wonderful to see our Pates returning back onto campus! A link to our video for our return to campus plan was sent out to parents via email and is uploaded onto our school website. While transitioning students back onto campus, we understand it is also the start of the cold and flu season. Therefore, should any student who exhibits any symptoms and are quarantined, our students may still access instruction online via Zoom with their teacher. This is the beauty of our instructional model that allows our students to still receive instruction from home if they are well enough to participate on Zoom.
It was also great to having Pates on campus for Picture Day this past week. If you were unable to make it, school picture retake day is scheduled for Thursday, January 28, 2021. Be sure to save-this-date!
Even though we are bringing students back onto campus, our county still has restrictions in place for large gatherings, therefore we will conduct our 33rd annual Turkey Trot virtually this year. Mrs. Guffey and Mrs. Nijskens have been working hard to put this virtual event together. Students will be able to TROT in place from wherever their location this Friday while viewing the Turkey Trot course. Dressing up is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED!
