Dear Tiger Families,
We hope the warm temperatures and sunshine have sparked some happiness within your homes. While our schools remain closed, that doesn’t mean our love and support for your family stops. Our cafeteria workers continue to cook nutritious meals. Various district staff members and dedicated community volunteers are serving and delivering those meals. Our maintenance and custodian crews are hard at work disinfecting, cleaning and beautifying buildings and campuses. Principals and teachers continue to provide educational enrichment and emotional support to our students. Other school leaders are in daily contact with local and state officials to ensure the District continues to make decisions that protect the health and safety of our entire school community. While COVID-19 has disrupted our normal routines, it will not break the bonds we have built within our Tiger community. We will continue to serve our families.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are extending our school closure through April 30, 2020. Our tentative return date is now set for Friday, May 1, 2020. Please note, we will continue to make week-by-week decisions on extending the closure based on the latest health information and guidelines that are provided to us from our local and state officials.
We will continue to serve meals at each of our elementary schools, but we are making one small change. We will only be serving meals Monday – Thursday. Students will be given double meals on Thursdays. The serving time will remain the same, 10:00 a.m. to noon. We are extremely thankful to have the opportunity to continue this service to our families during this time.
One quick reminder regarding this week, we will not be serving meals Friday, April 10 or Monday, April 13. A food mobile has been set up for Thursday, April 9 at Jefferson Elementary from 10:00 a.m. – noon.
Please know that we are here to support you through these very challenging times. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need anything. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time. You can also call 573-335-1867 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. If you feel more comfortable talking to your child’s teacher or principal, please feel free to express your needs through them. We care about you a great deal!
We are here for you and no matter how long we have to make scheduling changes due to COVID-19, that will not change.
