Welcome Back 2020-2021!

We are excited to have you back this year virtually and in person. 

Here are some things you need to know.

1. We begin online only for now. Teachers are setting up TEAMS for your child to meet with the teacher virtually. You should see your teacher's class pop up in your child's TEAMS. Be on the lookout for emails from your child's teacher.

2. Meet the Teacher/Parent Information Night will be combined and virtual. Your child's teacher will send you a link to join the meeting. 

August 10
5:30 pm - 3rd grade
6:00 pm - 1st Grade
6:35 pm - Kinder
7:05 pm - 2nd Grade

August 11
6:00 pm - 4th Grade
6:30 pm - Sped

3. Gideon "Drive-By and Wave" will be happening on August 11th at 3:00 pm. Please drive by and say hello to your teachers. You will enter on the west side of the building and drive around. This is great practice for drop off and pick up when we have in-person classes. This has changed to help mitigate the transmission of Covid-19. We can't wait to see you!

4. Please have your children wear shoes that do not have shoelaces if possible. If not, please practice shoe tying at home. This will help keep our hands clean.

5. Please have a mask for your child to wear in our common areas. (hallways, cafeteria, etc.) Fourth grade students will wear a mask in class also due to the mask mandate. This might change.

6. All students should have a device this year.
Aug. 8 - Virtual Academy Students
Pick up location is behind Wester Middle School,
1524 N. Walnut Creek Dr, Mansfield TX 76063
Hours are Mon – Fri 8am – 6pm

I have not heard when elementary in-person students will pick up their devices.

7. Please check your Skyward email to make sure you are getting the information our school and the district send out.

8. Students will need a water bottle. We will not be using the water fountains due to Covid-19. I suggest having 2 bottles of water for your child each day.

We are looking forward to a great year virtually and in the classroom. If you have any questions, please refer to our Fall Reopening Information https://www.mansfieldisd.org/parents-students/covid-19/fallreopening
 

Remember we are here for you.
