Dear Alma Families,
We cannot wait to welcome our 3rd-5th graders back to in person learning next Monday, April 12th!
Please see below for some basic information regarding our reopening.
- Monday-Friday 7:50 am-2:30 pm In Person
- If your scholar will be absent, please call the front desk of your child’s school; if the absence is related to symptoms of COVID-19, please inform the front desk when you call and a school nurse can follow up to support your family, as needed.
Emergency Contact Information:
- Please make sure that all contact information for yourself and emergency contacts is up to date, and update as needed.
- In some cases, we made shifts to our class lists based on the number of scholars who opted in to in-person learning. This means that your scholar may have a different teacher than they have had so far this year. If your scholar’s teacher will change, your scholar’s new teacher will reach out next week.
- On the first day, all scholars should bring their Chromebook/charger and other books and supplies they have been using for remote learning at home.
- Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
- Scholars are permitted to bring their own lunch from home, however, please minimize objects traveling between school and home.
- Reusable water bottles are strongly encouraged. They will stay at school Monday through Friday and may be brought home over the weekend for cleaning.
- Busing will be provided for scholars who live more than 1.5 miles away from their campus.
- COVID-19 protocols will be in place on the bus. All staff and scholars are required to sit in an assigned seat and to wear a mask at all times on the bus.
- Please determine a plan to pick up your child from school in the event they develop symptoms of COVID-19 while at school. If this situation arises, they will not be permitted to take the bus home.
- Family Drop Off/Pick Up
- If you choose to drop off or pick up your child from school, you must do so outside the building to minimize the number of adults in the building.
- Alma K-5 scholars wear uniforms to school. Learn more about the Alma uniform here.
- Please order your uniform directly from Superior Logos, 13 Brooks St., 508-717-6776.
- If purchasing a uniform this year is a hardship, please reach out to Marie Tavares, our Families Helping Families coordinator for support at email@example.com
Visitors to School Buildings:
- At this time, Alma is not permitting any visitors to the school building.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
