Week 2

Hello Georgetown Families,

It was another great week at GES!  The slower start to the year with four 1/2 days last week leading into a four day week this week has truly been a blessing and allowed our staff and students to work back into “school shape” after such an extended time away.  It has been a tremendous start to the year as students have seamlessly fallen into routines and learned norms and procedures  that have allowed teachers and staff to get off to a running start!  As we begin working into longer weeks please be sure to continue to establish routines at home with your children to ensure they’re getting the amount of rest that they need each day.  The days will get longer and the demands on their mental faculties will continue to increase.  Sleep will be an ally that they, and we, will need in the coming months.  A few reminders about upcoming dates and events:

  • No School – Monday, September 7 – Labor Day
  • 1/2 Day of School – Friday, September 18
  • Walk-a-thon – Thursday, September 24
    • Look for more information to come home about our walk-a-thon following Labor Day.

Finally, if you have not already done so, please read Dr. VanderJagt’s email/letter which was sent out today.  It outlines a few things.  The one that will affect us the most at GES is the change in NOT mandating masks at recess, so long as students can social distance.  Students would have to still wear their masks to and from recess.  Please make sure that your child has the lanyard which was provided by PTC (or another one) to help them hang onto their mask if/when they remove them.  It also would continue to be a good idea to send your child into school with an extra mask or two should one be misplaced or dropped into a puddle.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!

-Randy
