Hello Murch Families,
The year has started well. It’s great to see all the smiling faces on the faces of our students and teachers. Below are a few announcements and reminders.
REMIND APP: If you are not receiving REMIND announcements on your phone, please make sure your contact information is correct (up to date). You can share new email addresses or phone numbers with the welcome center staff.
BREAKFAST: BREAKFAST for 1st-5th graders is served in the school cafeteria starting at 8:15am and ending at 8:40am. If you would like your child to have breakfast, please have them arrive at Murch and enter the main entrance at Davenport at 8:15am. All students will be dismissed at 8:40 from the cafeteria to arrive in classrooms on time for instruction. Breakfast for Pre-K and K is in the classrooms. Click HERE for all the breakfast and lunch procedures.
NEW PROCEDURE FOR STUDENTS ENTERING THE BUILDING: Starting on Tuesday, September 6, teachers in grades 1-5 will no longer pick students up from outside lines in the morning. All students in grades 1-5 will enter the building on their own and be guided to classrooms with the help of peer mediators and several staff members. Each teacher will personally greet each student before they enter the classroom. Doors will open just after 8:30am. Please note that instruction begins at 8:45 and all students should be present and in classrooms for daily instruction by this time. To clarify, Pre-K and K students will still meet their teachers at outdoor lines.
BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT FOR K-5: Back to school night is on Thursday, September 8th. There will be two sessions offered at each grade level. The first one begins at 6:05pm and the second one begins at 6:45pm. The same information will be shared at both sessions and will last 30 minutes. These sessions will be held in your child’s classroom.
Pre-K will have their own back to school night, still TBD, separate from grades K-5.
Enjoy Labor Day Weekend!
