Elementary First Day of School Update

La Farge Elementary Families,

We are so excited to get students back into the building for a new school year! Though there are some changes and things we need to do differently, the same compassion, commitment, and excitement remain in our staff. 

I wanted to give an update about our first day of school and drop off procedures. In many cases, children can be quite nervous on the first day. We want to help mitigate this problem. We will have our 4K, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade teachers meet students and families on the playground at the drop-off area (along Field St.). That way, students will be able to greet their teachers even though parents won’t be able to walk them to their classrooms. Bus-riding students will also join their classmates on the playground. Also, all elementary parents will be allowed to walk their child(ren) to the door if desired. We will plan on doing this for the first week of school and longer if needed. 

Check out this video about our efforts to make school as safe as possible. 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
