A Message from Principal Burns Re: Plan B Return to School 10.15.20

Good morning, Plan B Families!  We are excited to begin welcoming students back to campus soon!  We have been working tirelessly to create a safe plan for all students and staff.  Below you will find a link to a folder with important reopening information that I urge you to read carefully.  When you open this folder, you will have access to information about Arrival & Dismissal, Day to Day Guidelines, Before & After School Care, Symptom Screening Procedure, When Your Child Can Return to School After Illness, Learning Schedules; and, a school map.  

We will hold a question and answer session on Monday, October 19, from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. via the following Google Meet link: meet.google.com/afx-edfk-tjj.  We will also be issuing carpool numbers to families and collecting medication on Friday, October 23, from 9:00-10:30 & 2:00-3:00 via the bus loop (parking lot to the right of the school).  

¡Buenos días, familias de Plan B! ¡Estamos emocionados de comenzar a dar la bienvenida a los estudiantes al campus pronto! Hemos estado trabajando incansablemente para crear un plan seguro para todos los estudiantes y el personal. A continuación encontrará un enlace a una carpeta con información importante sobre la reapertura que le recomiendo que lea atentamente. Cuando abra esta carpeta, tendrá acceso a información sobre llegada y salida, pautas del día a día, cuidado antes y después de la escuela, procedimiento de detección de síntomas, cuándo su hijo puede regresar a la escuela después de una enfermedad, horarios de aprendizaje; y un mapa escolar.

Realizaremos una sesión de preguntas y respuestas el lunes 16 de octubre, a partir de las 6:00 p.m. a las 6:30 p.m. a través del siguiente enlace de Google Meet: meet.google.com/afx-edfk-tjj.  También daremos números de carpool a las familias y recolectaremos medicamentos el viernes 23 de octubre de 9: 00-10: 30 y 2: 00-3: 00 a través del circuito de autobús (estacionamiento a la derecha de la escuela).

Virtually Unstoppable,

Derek H. Burns

You’re Invited: Campus Clean-Up

Leaves, weeds and trash, oh my!

Our lovely campus needs a little TLC before school starts back for Plan B students. Please consider volunteering at your leisure anytime before Oct. 26 to spruce up the campus. Whether pulling weeds, picking up trash, blowing leaves, painting or power-washing, any help you provide will make a big difference!

SIGN UP HERE

Masks and social distancing are required. The building will not be open, so plan accordingly.

Thank you!

New Spirit Wear Is Here!

Our new spirit wear is all about being comfy and cozy while we learn from home. Think flannels for PJ day (every day?), soft-spun and regular tees, plush hoodies and fleece blankies to curl up with in front of your next Google Meet.

We also have some loved classics like car magnets and our popular Douglas trucker hat.

We cannot wait to see everyone in their new spirit wear, which is available now for preorder! Items will be distributed at September’s school material pickup event — stay tuned for exact dates from the school.

Get your Douglas spirit wear here!

‘Our Turn to Step Up’

This year, the early bird award goes to Sam Hershey! He was the very first parent to join the PTA this summer, before school even started. Here’s what he had to say about why the PTA is so important to him:

“We are very excited to be a part of the Douglas community/PTA. We are big supporters of public education, and we understand the important role our son’s teachers and the administrators at Douglas will play in his growth as a person. It’s important to us that they know how much we appreciate them. We also appreciate the many parents before us who have contributed countless hours to make Douglas a great school. Now it’s our turn to step up and continue the tradition.”

Why, thank you Sam! Please follow Sam’s lead and join online today!
