Letter from Principal Kloss, Mar. 13

Filed in Elsmere by on March 13, 2020

Dear Elsmere Families,

I can’t thank you enough for the calm, mature role-modeling you are providing for the children during this uncertain time. Our district will be in contact with families as we are updated. Additional information is available on our website.

As mentioned in an earlier announcement by the district, there is NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS this Monday, March 16.  As of right now, the Conference Day originally scheduled for Friday, March 20, will instead be a regular school day.  In addition, as noted in Jody Monroe’s communication yesterday evening, all after school activities (with the exception of School’s Out) have been canceled until further notice.  We will try our best to reschedule as many as we can at a later date.  Stay tuned for more information moving forward.

In the meantime, please enjoy photos of these precious smiling faces.

Take care,

Kate Kloss
