Happy New Year! Monday, January 2nd, will be an asynchronous learning day due to water issues that are still occurring across our area. Students will not be required to attend Zoom Meetings and will work independently. Teachers will have assignments loaded into the learning platforms by 10:00 a.m. Our students have been utilizing these platforms and are very familiar with how to use either Seesaw or Google Classroom. However, please call the office if your child is having any issues.

From our PTO: PTO will be hosting a holiday store December 5th through the 10th, during school hours, for the students to shop for their friends and family members. Gifts will range from $.25 to $12 a piece. You will be receiving a flyer soon along with an envelope to help you budget with your child for how much they should spend on each person. If sending money for the holiday store is not something that you feel your family can afford at this time, there will be an opportunity for all kids to shop regardless of whether or not they have money. In the past, the children have really found this to be a fun way for them to independently shop for their family members. They will then get to come home with wrapped presents to gift during the holidays.

Attention Parents
Scheduling routine health check-ups and routine immunizations took a backseat during the pandemic. Now is the time to get back on track with routine care which includes being up-to-date on the vaccines. North Carolina's student immunization schedule includes vaccines such as polio and measles, mumps, rubella (MMR). Kindergarten, seventh, and twelfth graders require certain vaccines that can be found here>>> https://immunization.dph.ncdhhs.gov/schools/k-12.htm Make an appointment with your health care provider to get back on track today. Don’t have a health care provider? Buncombe County Health and Human Services can help. Visit buncombecounty.org/immunize for more information on their walk-in hours and appointment scheduling.
