Dear EMS Families,
Welcome to 2021. 🙂 I would like to highlight some important dates:
Monday, January 18: Martin Luther King Jr. Day. School will be released at 11:30am. Lunch will be provided. Buses will arrive between 11:30am and noon on that day.
Friday, January 22: The last day of 2nd quarter is January 22. Please check your child’s academic progress in Parent PowerSchool Portal. Also, families have asked about switching from “fully remote” status to “hybrid” status. The switch to hybrid is only available at quarter breaks; please contact us immediately if you have decided that you would like your child to be back in the hybrid program. We are finding that most students are more engaged when they are in the hybrid model than if they are fully remote.
Tuesday, January 26: EMS will be remote on January 26. Burlington High School will be using Edmunds Middle School to conduct PSAT tests on that one day.
I am grateful for the deeply committed, passionate staff that we have at EMS. This staff absolutely wants to work with your child. If you check your child’s academic progress, and you have any questions, please contact the teachers. The teachers want to engage with your child… the teachers want to facilitate the personal and academic growth of your child.
We continue to take the Covid mitigation strategies seriously. We have found that physical distancing, wearing masks, and frequent sanitation/hand washing has been extremely effective. We are thankful that families are not sending their children to school with any symptoms of illness. We feel that these measures are making it so that we can safely keep students in school.
We appreciate having the opportunity to work with your children. They bring joy, energy, and brilliance with them every day.
