Our high school students may no longer take first day pictures (or maybe they do in secret), they might not have a special first day outfit, and the excitement and nervousness may have faded a little over the years. However, the first day of school is as important for a sophomore as it is for a kindergartener. I want you to know that we are working hard to make this year’s first day welcoming. COVID-19 has changed some things about the way school will operate, but our excitement about having students back in the building has not changed.
Last year we began a new tradition of freshmen bootcamp with the intent to make it a yearly event. Because we think it is an effective way to introduce and welcome freshmen to the high school, we will do this again but with a few modifications. I want to give you a preview of what the first day of school will look like for your students.
We are confident this schedule and format will allow us to welcome students back into the building in a personal way and give them time to ask questions and adjust to the new procedures.
