K8 Weekly Update 8/9/21

Happy Monday,

I hope you all had a great weekend and are starting to find a routine for school. I know it’s hard for the students to get up early after all the months of not traveling to the building. However, it’s been such a fun few days getting to see everyone!

Here are this week’s updates and reminders:

  • Lunches: The link for MyHotLunchBox has changed. The information for signing up for lunches has been updatedon our website. The new link is:  https://ordernow.myhotlunchbox.com

  • Plan A Protocols:A pdf is attached outlining our plan for this year. We will update it as necessary. Please note that we will not screen students as they exit cars since this is no longer required per CDC and NC DHHS guidelines. We will not use the Greenlight app this year either. Please keep your student at home if they have any symptoms.
