Headphone Distribution – Thursday, February 18th, 2021

We were not planning to distribute more supplies this month; however, we received a shipment of headsets with microphones. So, we will be making these available for pick up next Thursday afternoon. Families will be able to pick these up in the south entrance, while still maintaining physical distancing. Note: unlike the supply distributions, the headphones will need to be picked up in the afternoon.

Time: 12:30 to 4:00pm

Families who cannot pick up in the afternoon may contact the office to make arrangements to pick up an another time if they cannot pick up at the designated time.

YG Family Zoom Meeting –
Preparing Students to Return to School

We will be holding another family Zoom meeting on March 2nd, from 6:30 to 7:30pm. The topic for this meeting will be preparing students to return to school, knowing that some students will be excited to be in school, while others may be concerned about safety during the pandemic. Some students may feel both excited and concerned. Scott, Naoko Sensei, and Kocho Sensei will meet with families to discuss this and ways to help students address both.

We will also be sharing photos (and perhaps video content) of the common areas and playground for families to view. More information, including the zoom, will be shared in the coming newsletters.
