Dear Strasburg C-3 Families,
Welcome back! I am excited for the students to return on August 24, 2021. I cannot wait to see them and hear about their summer adventures! To ensure a safe return in the fall, The Board of Education approved The Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan in June 2021. You can review this plan on the District’s Website. Please read over this plan and contact the office if you have any questions. Until further notice, the District will not admit visitors into the building. If you need to meet with a teacher or administration, please call the office to make an appointment.
To help facilitate communication with families, the District installed phones in all classrooms and offices. When you call the school, you will receive an automated attendant that will allow you to dial by last name or extension. Teachers will share their extension numbers with you during open house. Please note that all calls to a teacher during instructional time will be forwarded to their voicemail. Teachers will return calls during their plan time, before school, or after school.
The school day will look a little different this year, beginning at 8:20 a.m. and ending at 3:55 p.m. Doors will open at 8:00 a.m., and breakfast will be served until 8:20 a.m. Breakfast will cost $1.60, lunch will cost $2.20, and extra milk will cost 45 cents. Please keep in mind that teacher contracted hours begin at 7:45 a.m., so there is limited supervision until 8:00 each morning. Due to supervision and safety, please do not drop your student before 8:00 a.m.
In response to parking lot safety concerns, arrival and dismissal procedures have changed for this school year. Would you please visit the District website to view a video about how arrival and dismissal will work this year? The District also sent home (K-2nd) and mailed home (3-8) a letter explaining the procedures with grade cards at the end of the last school year. Please be patient with these procedures; it may take a few months for things to run smoothly. These procedures will begin on the first day of school. You may want to take pictures of your students at open house since there will be no parking during arrival and dismissal times on the first day of school.
We have new faces in our building this year! If you have a minute during open house, please introduce yourself, and welcome them to the family!
Janna Cox- Bookkeeper
Raeanne Plowman- Title Reading Teacher
Darian Eggleston- Kindergarten Teacher
Erin Morey- Third-Grade Teacher
On a final note, we are excited to announce that Mrs. Kristin Tribble will be serving as part-time assistant principal this school year. Mrs. Tribble will handle student discipline and classroom concerns. She will also be the 6th-8th grade Social Studies teacher and continue to serve as our District Curriculum Director. Please follow the set chain of command in communicating concerns with the District: classroom teacher, assistant principal (Mrs. Tribble), and finally principal/superintendent (Mrs. Mayfield).
