Letter from Principal Bonacquist, Jan. 8

Filed in Slingerlands by on January 8, 2021

Dear Families,

Happy New Year!!!

A new year always gives me a sense of hope and new beginnings.  Although we are still in the midst of a very serious worldwide health crisis and our country is experiencing some significant challenges, I still feel hopeful as we begin a new year.  We have some staff members that have received the first dose of the vaccine this week and we are anxiously awaiting to hear when all school staff will get theirs! The days are starting to get longer and spring is not too far away (ok , maybe this is a stretch!).   I am also very excited that the children will be returning in person on Monday.



Cars can enter the parking lot at 9:00.  We will begin letting cars through as soon as the buses are done, which is about 9:15.  If you are running a little late and do not see any staff member still out in the back, you may have to park and walk your child up to the front door and ring the bell.

Dismissal – 

Parents will be allowed in the parking lot at 2:55.  When the weather turns bad, we will likely back this time up again to as early as 2:45.

Walkers / Bike Riders – 

Bikers and walkers will be released at 3:15.

If it rains and your child will NOT be walking/riding, please contact the office and let us know.

COVID Tracker 

Please remember to complete this each morning for each of your children. This needs to be completed everyday, EVEN if your child is home sick or is in quarantine.  If you haven’t completed it, we will be giving you a reminder.
