Dear Parents,

As we are moving closer to the commencement of school, we are continuing to monitor the data and follow recommendations from the Maricopa County Health Department. I am resharing the document pertaining to the safe re-opening of the school as we made some minor changes. Last year we worked tirelessly to follow guidelines and put together a plan which kept us in person from September to the end of the school year. Thankfully there was no transmission at the school. The safety of the school children is our top priority. Our plan will change in the future as we continue monitoring the data and meeting on a weekly basis to determine the safest way to keep the children in person while maintaining a healthy environment.

Yesterday, All my troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though they're here to stay... (Yesterday, Lennon/McCartney)

When school was dismissed on May 27, 2021 for summer break, many left asking if things would be back to “normal” in the 2021-22 school year or if mitigation measures in response to the Pandemic would still be necessary. At that time, it was too soon to tell. We committed to monitoring the situation over the summer months, remaining up to date on current public health guidelines, and developing a plan of action that allows for the formation and education of our students in a safe environment.

Dear OLMC Families,

It is hard to believe that school is right around the bend! We are very excited to begin a new year and cannot wait to see the children! Here is some information pertaining to the new school year:

  1. Please read the Nurse’s Notes following my newsletter. In these notes Nurse David has outlined the Back to School protocols pertaining to COVID.
  2. Tomorrow I will send home the Sign up genius for our Meet the Teacher/Orientation. Sign up for 1 time slot per family. This is when you will be completing the necessary paperwork for your child to begin school on August 10. The children will also be able to meet their teacher!
