Dear MRH ECC Families,
The countdown to school starting has begun! As we begin our journey into the 2021-2022 school year together, I will be communicating with you weekly in this email format. Each Sunday evening, I will send out need-to-know information as well as upcoming dates for you and your children at the ECC.
Tomorrow, Monday, August 16th will be our Back-to-School Supply Drive-Thru for Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade Families. Drive through the car pick-up line (via Burgess Ave.) to drop off your school supplies from 7:45-9:30 AM or 1:00-3:00 PM! If you cannot make this supply drop-off, plan on bringing your school supplies on the first day of school! School transportation information will also be distributed at that time!
Virtual Orientation for Kindergarten-2nd Grade Families will be on Thursday, August 19th from 5:30-6:30 PM and for Preschool Families on Thursday, August 26th from 6-7 PM. A webinar link to join the virtual orientation with Back to School Information will be sent out the day before the event. During the presentation, you will be sent links to join your child's homeroom or home space directly after the presentation.
On Friday, August 20th, there will be a practice bus run for all students riding a school bus. Have your child at the bus stop at your assigned pick-up time and plan on picking your child(ren) up from the Oakland side of the school at 8 AM.
Tuesday, August 24th is the first day of school for all Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade students! All students must wear a mask to school. Drop-off begins at 7:45 AM and school begins at 8:00 AM! Release time is at 3:15 PM.
Preschool will begin on Tuesday, August 31st PM with drop-off beginning at 8:00 AM. Additional instructions for drop-off will be sent to all preschool families the week before preschool begins. You can watch our MRH ECC Preschool Meet-n-Greet by clicking HERE.
We are committed to keeping your child safe while he/she is at school. Preschool families are being invited up to school before the first day of preschool to see their children's classrooms as well as incoming Kindergarten students who are taking Kindergarten assessments. We are offering a virtual tour to all families during orientation. If you have a 1st or 2nd grade child and would like to see the school building before the start of school, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can schedule a time for you to see the school building and your child(ren)'s classroom.
Thank you for your partnership and I look forward to serving you and your family this school year!
