Important Kindergarten Information

Wrapping Up an AWESOME (But completely INSANE!!) Year!

Well, believe it or not, we are almost to the end of the craziest year of all of our lives! WE DID IT!!!

While the year certainly had its share of ups and downs, I would not trade it for anything. Being able to be your child’s teacher truly has been a blessing. I am honored to have played a role in their education!

Normally, we end the year with an end of the year picnic and some sort of promotion ceremony. We are changing things up a bit. There will be a lot of information posted and sent home about the days ahead soon. Be sure to check both your child’s backpack, class dojo and the blog for information!

In the meantime, here is some important information:

*Some parents have asked about returning Chromebooks. I asked the office and they are still waiting on information about when they will need to be returned. As soon as I have that information, I will let you know.

*All reading books will need to be returned by Thursday June 10 (Group A) or Friday June 11 (Group B). If you have questions about what needs to be returned, please ask.

*The weather is definitely changing! Our room can get very warm so please be sure to dress your child appropriately. Also, while flip flops are fun to wear, they are NOT fun to run in or when you get wood chips jammed into your toes while on the playground. Please continue to send your child in shoes that they can run in and that protect their feet while on the playground.

*Speaking of the weather, please remember to send in a water bottle with your child. Our drinking fountains are still closed and they need to hydrate on these hot days. 

Thank you for your support!

Covid Screening Tools for Families

February 11, 2021 by Mohammad Abdelfattah

Snow Families,

As we forward to our return to in person learning, our school will be working in partnership with families in order to help screen your children for potential COVID symptoms. As part of the return to school plan, parents are required to screen their children daily. We are asking you to use the COVID 19 screening tool linked below to screen your child daily, especially before coming to school during hybrid learning. 

Thank you!


Snow Elementary Hybrid Restart Information

February 10, 2021 by Mohammad Abdelfattah

Hello Snow Community,

By now many of you have heard that our community has met the health criteria set by our Board of Education and we can start our plan to bring students back to in-person learning through a phased in approach. Please see the timeline below that shows when your child’s grade level will be coming back.   

We have worked very hard to develop a plan that will allow us to safely resume a hybrid model of face to face learning. When we start to bring students back, you will notice that we have added signage and other safety measures to our school, stockpiled PPE’s, and enhanced cleaning procedures.  Also, by the time students start coming back for instruction, all staff members who have chosen to receive the COVID-19 vaccine will have had the opportunity to get at least their first dose.  

The District plan is a phased in approach that will allow us to work through the process slowly and cautiously to ensure the safety of our students and staff.  Of course, each school will face their own unique challenges and we will be working with our staff, students, and parents to make sure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.

Moving to this next phase is exciting news and we look forward to seeing your children in our classrooms.  We also know that for some it may bring about uneasy feelings or even concern.  Please know that all of us here at Snow are working to create the very best learning experience for your child while maintaining the safety of all students and staff. 

Be safe and continue to Mask UP!
