Sunday Minute – September 5, 2021
Good evening, families. This is Mrs. Stevens with this week’s Sunday minute.
NO SCHOOL - Monday & Tuesday
This is a loving reminder that we do not have school tomorrow September 6th or Tuesday, September 7th, in honor of Labor Day and Rosh Hashanah.
Parents, there is no charge for lunch for all students. However, if you haven’t filled out the Meal Benefits Application, please do so as soon as possible. You may pick up an application in the main office or go online https://www.myschoolapps.com/ It’s important that all families fill out the meal applications. If we don’t have 100% participation, it could negatively impact the amount of money we receive in our budget for next year.
Check-In Temp Checks vs Daily Pass only
Thank you parents for accompanying your children to their check-in gates. If you would like to see the check-in process go faster, please consider being a part of our FUTURE valet volunteer team. We cannot start our valet service without volunteers. If you are interested, please fill out the Google Doc in the email version off this message.
Because we don’t have school on Monday, there will be no mobile unit testing on campus this week. If your child missed testing the last two Mondays, please visit one of our stationary sites to ensure current testing and your ability to get a Daily Pass. The closest stationary testing site is Northridge Middle School. They will be open on Tuesday, September 7th from 9am-7pm.
ROOM PARENTS AND VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
We are calling all room parents and volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity, please fill
out the Google Doc in the email version of this message. You can also contact our PTA Room Parent Coordinator, Mrs. Issa Trudgeon at email@example.com or Parent Center Director, Mrs. Marissa Croft at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Finally, you are invited to our Governance Council Elections on Wednesday, September 8th at 3:30PM via zoom. We will be electing our Governance Council Executive Board members and parent reps.
