Hello MAS families! I hope the summer has been good to you and you found time to relax and enjoy the sun and heat. We are excited and looking forward to the new school year. There are a few information items that I wanted to share with you prior to school start.
School Hours- We have adjusted our school hours slightly after previous years observations and feedback from staff, to help in the transition with our extended K-2 instructional hours, and to maximize effective learning.
7:50-8:05- Playground supervision and morning arrival
8:15-9:50- Instructional Time
10:10-11:45- Instructional Time
12:40-2:50- Instructional Time (K-2 will have a short snack break/mindfullness break in afternoon)
*Wednesday- Dismissal- 12:15pm
Afterschool Care- Many had inquired about new afterschool care options available to the school this past spring. We have been informed that the McAdam Avenue Christian Preschool next door will be offering after school care this year. For more information please call them at 451- 8947. GOGO gymnastics has also offered afterschool pick up for their Main street location if they have at least 5 students enroll. Their contact info is 455-5496, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Reminder the first day back for students is Tuesday, September 4th. Our kindergarten students have a staggered entry- Tuesday or Wednesday 9-11am and then everyone Thursday. We will be contacting kindergarten parents at the beginning of next week to inform you of which day your child is to attend.
We are excited for a fantastic year at MAS and look forward to seeing everyone!
