Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back everyone! We are so excited about the upcoming school year. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of all of our students in the Markham community. I hope that all of your summer vacations and time with family and friends have been as meaningful and relaxing as possible.
The first day of attendance for all students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth is Wednesday August 25, 2021. Students that would like to eat breakfast should arrive at 8:20am. Our school day will begin promptly at 8:45am and we will dismiss daily at 3:00pm. Walkers will be dismissed from the back of the building. Car riders will be placed inside of their cars on the North side of the building and Bus riders will dismiss out the front door. We look forward to having a more organized and efficient dismissal this year while remaining safe.
Parents, we have missed having ALL of our children in our gyms, lunchrooms, hallways and classrooms. We are so excited to engage ALL of our students for a different, yet fabulous school year. We have so many exciting and fun activities planned to encourage, motivate and stimulate our students. We plan to ensure that in the midst of their learning we take frequent mental wellness breaks. Most importantly, we are committed to ensuring that ALL of our students and staff remain safe and secure. We realize that we are still in the midst of a pandemic so we are conducting the following to ensure that our students remain safe:
1.) Temperatures checked daily
2.) Masks worn all day**mask breaks will be provided throughout the day for students**
3.) Weekly COVID testing beginning Monday, September 27, 2021
4.) Maintaining 3 feet of distance throughout the school day
Parents, please join us in making sure that as we reimagine education, we make the 2021-2022 school year a PHENOMENAL year for our students. Won’t you join Prairie-Hills as The pursuit of EXCELLENCE continues…
