Good afternoon Cotee River Families, this is Mrs. Slusser with your weekly message. Starting Monday through Thursday each grade level has an assigned day that the Wonderland Gift Shoppe will come to their classroom. Friday will be a make-up day in case anyone missed the chance to shop. Please see the flyers sent home that includes grade level shopping days and information about the gift shop. Wednesday, the 8th, is Early Release Day and dismissal begins at 1:50.
Parents we need your help, if your child needs a fidget tool to support them during the school day, please talk with your child’s teacher so we can provide a tool for them at school. All types of personal pop its, etc should be kept at home.
In case you have not seen previous posts in regards to the new bell schedule starting Semester 2. When children return from Winter Break, on Tuesday, January 4th our new school hours will be 10:10-4:20. Scholars can be dropped off in the car loop starting at 9:55. Instruction begins at 10:10. Children are considered tardy starting at 10:15. Dismissal will begin at 4:20.
We look forward to seeing everyone’s bright smiling faces ready to learn Monday morning, no later than 9:40. Take care.
Keeping our Staff and Scholars Healthy: Please continue to support our efforts to keep our scholars and staff healthy. Screen your child before coming to school each day by using the daily screener. The screener can be located on the district county website, along with our current guidelines. If you have any questions on whether or not you should send your child to school, please contact our front office at 727 774-3000 to discuss next steps. In addition, the use of masks and other personal protective equipment will remain highly recommended, but not required in almost all school situations and environments. However, given the significant increase of cases, usage is strongly encouraged for students to protect themselves and help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our schools.
Student Notification of Potential Exposure to Positive Individual at School: For students that are notified of having potential exposure to an individual that has tested positive for COVID-19 at school, the parent may:
o Continue to send the child to school
o Choose to keep their child at home
 Parent/Guardian must notify the school that they are choosing to keep their child at home due to potential exposure or the child has become symptomatic.
 It is important that you contact us, if you are choosing to keep your child home, due a potential exposure or your child has become symptomatic in order for us to excuse the absence. If we do not receive a call, the absence will be marked unexcused.
