Good Afternoon Bobcat families!
Welcome to our first full week of school; the first two days were fantastic. I can’t wait to see all that our staff and students can accomplish this semester!
Information in this newsletter:
These will be distributed to students whose parents have completed the Electronic Use Agreement beginning this week. If you are in need of a device and have not completed this form, please do so ASAP.
We have an ERA Parent Blast to share important updates including weather closures and schedule changes. The app is free and the directions are attached.
PowerSchool Access for New Families:
Information on how to access parent and student PowerSchool accounts will go home to new ERA families in grades 5-8 this week. All other grade levels do not require PowerSchool access at this time. If you have questions about your account or need assistance gaining access, contact Becky Moore at email@example.com.
Are you looking for a way to support students at your school? We currently could use your help in two ways:
My Hot Lunch Box donations – While ordering your child’s hot lunch box, you can create another student called “donation” and order lunch for students in need on any day.
Food Pantry donations – We will gladly take any non-refrigerated items for our food pantry to help students when a lunch is forgotten, or unable to be made for them.
The Peer Ambassador program will continue this school year – click here to learn more about it. Interested students should apply by September 2 using this form: https://tinyurl.com/
We will be hosting a club fair on August 19 during lunch so that students may be able to get information about all of the clubs we offer, and sign up to be a part of any of them.
Our updated Covid protocols can be found here. Please do not send any symptomatic students to school, our staff will work with your students to make up any work. We have had one positive case so far, and hope to limit those as much as possible.

Please provide access for Mr. Schaffer to your Common App once you get to the recommendation section.
