“Dear parents,

Just wanted to keep everyone up to date.  Plans are still in progress to start school in August. We are not holding formal book days for grades 7-12.  Instead, we are asking you to call the school to set up an appointment beginning next week.  We have also posted several forms on the Ecole website which we are asking you to complete and return to the office either on the days that you come for books or return with your child on the first day of school.  These forms can be found under the “forms” section.  The forms that you need to print out and complete are: Cell phone contract, photo release form, emergency information card, medical authorization form for grades 1st -12th, child information from for 2PK- Kindergarten.  If your child will be participating in high school athletics, there are 4 sports forms that need to be printed and completed.  PLEASE NOTE;  ALL HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES MUST HAVE A CURRENT PHYSICAL ON FILE IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE.

Classrooms are all begin set up for social distancing, hand sanitizing stations are being placed around the school and all areas of the school have been sanitized.  Masks will be required for students in grades 3-12. Masks for students who are enrolled in grades lower than 3rd grade are suggested but not required.   Faculty and staff for all levels will wear face protection.  We have ordered Ecole Classique masks for those who may be interested in purchasing one.  We are anxiously looking forward to getting underway and look forward to seeing all of the students in August.

Elementary students will purchase textbooks on the first day of school.  We want to remind all parents to go to the forms section on the Ecole website to download the forms that apply to their children.  You will also find the textbook order forms that will allow you to purchase those textbooks that we do not carry in our bookstore.  Elementary students have to purchase supplies. This year we are not setting up one day for these supplies to be delivered to the school.  Instead, the supplies may be delivered to school beginning August 5 from 9 AM-2 PM Monday – Friday.  Please put your child’s supplies in one bag with his/her name on the bag and drop it off in the front office.  We will deliver the supplies to the classrooms.

We are still developing all of the guidelines that will be in effect for the start of school.  As you may be aware, the CDC issued new regulations on Thursday and we are updating our guidelines to make sure that we are in compliance with what they have issued.  As soon as these are completed, we will send them out.

If you have any questions about the upcoming school year, please feel free to contact the front office.  Our summer hours are Monday-Friday from 9 AM-3 PM.”
