Woodland Woodchucks Weekly Newsletter

December 1, 2021


We have been busy getting back in the swing of things after returning from our vacation week.  A reminder to all, please have your students bring warm, winter clothing for their outdoor times.  They are out in the mornings as well as lunch recess time.  Hats, mittens, warm coats and ski pants are all needed to keep them warm on our winter days.  


PTA is having a meeting here in the 6th grade classroom on Monday, Dec. 6th.  All are invited to attend.  Masks will be required for the in- person meeting and a zoom link will be available on the Facebook page for those who would like to attend virtually.  


Pool testing is going well and students are becoming more independent with the testing procedure each week.  It is another step to keeping students and staff safe and in school.  Although participation is high, please know that if you haven’t signed up, you can always do so by completing the consent form that is posted on our website.  


We are very excited to announce that Mrs. Donna Thomas will be joining us full time as our new cook.  We are so happy to have her here preparing healthy meals for our students.

A note from the Nurse’s office:

I know I mentioned this before but I just want to reiterate the importance of notifying the school if your child will be absent. If your child has been absent for more than one day without contact being made with the school I will be reaching out to make sure your child's absence is not illness related and will guide parents and guardians on the return to school process. Unfortunately Covid-19 is still active in our community and as a school we want to continue to be able to do everything we can to keep our students and staff safe. 


If I have made contact with you in regards to your child's routine immunizations being out of compliance I want to remind you that the 90 day grace period ends on November 30th. After that date I will be reaching out to our superintendent with the list of students that are out of compliance with immunizations. Please reach out to me if I have sent you a letter over the past month.
