Dear Centennial Families,
Welcome back to school! We will start the 2020-21 school year with a Centennial Elementary School Open House the week of September 8-11. You will all be contacted soon with a day/time to visit the school to meet the teachers, tour the building, get your Chromebooks and much more. You will also have some online learning activities during the week.
All Richfield students will have equal access to core instruction, no matter how they are enrolled. Centennial students will continue working through the grade-level standards in Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Music, Art and Media. Students in school will also receive lunch and recess every day. More detailed information will be provided at the Open House.
We have many safety procedures in place, and students and staff will be required to wear masks. Gloves, face shields, hand sanitizers and surface wipes will be available at all times. Students and staff will maintain the six-foot social distancing guidelines. The building will be cleaned often, with a deep cleaning on Wednesdays, when students do not attend in person. We will continue to keep up to date on best practices for health and safety.
If you suspect your child is sick or has been exposed to someone who is sick, please call the attendance phone number and do not send them to the building. If a student gets sick while at school, we will isolate him/her with adult supervision and call parents to pick up. If your child is in the distance learning model, please still call the attendance phone to report it. Your child’s absence will be approved and he/she will not have to work online that day.
Unfortunately, visitors will not be allowed in the building during this time. Parents and other visitors may come into the office to drop things off, pick things up, talk to staff, attend meetings, etc., but they will not be admitted into the main building. This is to ensure safety for ALL students - especially yours! Thank you for understanding and supporting our efforts.
Finally, I want to again welcome you to Centennial Elementary for another year! We are so happy to have you in our community, whether you are attending in the hybrid model or distance learning. We value all of our students and their families, and we will strive to provide the very best learning opportunities while maintaining safety for all. Don’t hesitate to contact the school with questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing you the week of September 8!
Ms. Colleen Mahoney, Principal
