We are eager to welcome students back to Hills Garrison on Tuesday, September 8th for the first day of school!  In the meantime, we know you are eager to learn who your child’s teacher will be for the coming school year.  We are working on getting this information to you as soon as possible - thank you for your patience.

We have lived in a certain state of uncertainty since mid-March when all of our lives were upended, and we know that returning to school presents many questions for you and your children.  Many of the typical routines and procedures will look different this year, and our goal is to get this information to you in a timely manner.  Our building level taskforce has been meeting through the summer and is working thoughtfully, deliberately, and carefully to make the most comprehensive plans possible to ensure the safety and well-being of all.

Some things we DO know:

-          Teachers and staff are excited to connect with students and build vibrant, strong classroom communities and relationships!

-          Students will still have recess!  Additionally, teachers will utilize outdoor learning spaces as much as possible.

-          Specialist classes will continue, although these might look a bit different than usual.  Again, outdoor and alternate spaces are being considered to provide the best learning environment possible.

-          Breakfast & lunch will be available daily.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.  Questions can be directed to Mrs. Muncey at smuncey@sau81.org.  We appreciate your support and understanding as we continue to navigate uncharted waters together.

Schools are meant for children, and we can’t wait for their return.  We are looking forward to sharing more information with you as it becomes available.  In the meantime, we hope that you continue to savor the summer days.  Enjoy the fresh air and time with family!

 

Until next time,

Lois Connors, Principal

Sarah Muncey, Assistant Principal
