November 21, 2022 – Eye of the Tiger Family Message

Dear Barrett Families:

Arriving on Time: The school day begins at 9:00AM. It is strongly recommended that students be dropped off by 8:45 so that they can have the option to get breakfast and be in class, ready to start their day by 9:00 AM. Students who want breakfast are able to enter the building starting at 8:40 AM. If your student is late (arrives after 9:00 AM) more than 3 times, we will contact you to see how we can support you in getting your student to school on time. It is important that each child is in their class, ready to begin their day by 9:00 AM as often as possible.

Dr. Duran’s Message: Please see the most recent message from the Superintendent here.

Message from School Health: The Flu, Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) and COVID are some illnesses to be aware of this season.  Please see here for a message from School Health on how to keep your child and families safe.

Playground Update: We are so excited to see how quickly our playground is coming together! While it looks near completion, it is not finished yet. As a result, our playground is not safe to play on just yet. We are still waiting for finishing the flooring and the official green light from the safety inspector before we can open it up for students to play. We cannot wait until we get the green light to play on our new playground!! Please consider supporting us by volunteering to spend time with us at recess. Sign-up using this link.

SEL Update: The SEL focus for the month of December is Empathy. Please see here for more information on Empathy and how you can help your child develop perspective-taking skills with us.Volunteering at Barrett – See this link for more information on volunteering with us.
