Nitrauer Update — September 3rd

From Dr. Hancock

Hello, Nitrauer Families!

We had a terrific second week! We continue to be impressed by how well students are adjusting and following our safety protocols.

Back-to-School Night:

This year will be our first ever virtual back to school night! I look forward to sharing highlights from the start of the school year as well as important information about our school. Our virtual Back-to-School Night is Tuesday, September 15 and will be held through Zoom. Each teacher and specialist will have a link for parents to join virtually. Below is an example of how you will join teachers’ sessions; you will click on the zoom link. This is just a screen shot for now, but on Tues, Sept 15, the links will be live. Stay tuned for more detailed information coming next week!

Update on playground:

Beginning on Tues, 9/8, we will be allowing students to use the playground structures. The number of students using the equipment at once will be limited and students will use hand sanitizer before and after playing on the structures. Our lunch teachers will have class schedules for when students may be on the structures.

Distribution of flyers:

This year we are not going to be announcing flyers and having interested students come to the office. Instead we will be sharing district-approved flyers through our newsletter. Current flyers can be found here: 20.09.01 Scout Flyer; 20.09.01 Plant the Seed Flyer; Nitrauer Elementary flyer for Bible2School 2020-21.

Nit Notes!

Last year we began to recognize students who were being responsible, respectful, and/or safe at school. Students received a “Nit Note” from an adult in the school if they were “caught” showing one of these excellent traits. Parents were notified of this special achievement through Seesaw. We are going to continue the same process this year, with both face-to-face and remote students. Your child’s teacher will be in touch if your student receives a Nit Note!

Here’s an example of how the Back to School Night Zoom links will look. This is just to give you an idea; it is NOT the actual list of live links yet.
