Happy 2nd Weekend!

Week 2 of social distancing, with a mandated shelter in place order thrown in, is in the books! I hope all of you are figuring out your new normal, I’m getting there, this week seemed a little easier than last week. I still miss seeing you and getting to teach you in person, that has not changed! I’m going to share a few things you can do this weekend if you need something to help keep you busy!

Most of you probably do not know this about me, but when I was young I wanted to be a dairy farmer, there was a dairy just outside of the town where I grew up. They had a small store where we got our milk in glass jars, that had to be shaken up before you poured a glass to mix the cream back into the milk. One of my favorite field trips as a kid was going to the dairy and seeing how the whole process worked. Little did I know at the time that in order to be a dairy farmer one usually had to be born into a dairy farming family! Even with the realization that I probably was not going to grow up to milk cows, I never passed up an oportunity to visit a dairy farm, below you will find a links where you can visit one too.

Updated School Closure Information

March 25, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Due to the mandatory shelter in place that has been issued beginning tomorrow evening, Thursday, March 26th through Thursday, April 9th, we have prepared new learning packets that have been added to the pick-up areas. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade packets are available for pick up underneath the covered sidewalk at the main entrance beginning tonight, March 25th after 7:00 pm.

Teachers have also provided links to educational resources on their blogs, but in case you do not have internet access or your student does not have a device, the work packets are an option. Please feel free to use the packets and available online resources at your discretion.

We still miss our students terribly, but our hope is that everyone stays healthy in the coming days. As this situation evolves we will keep you updated on a prospective return. We will remain Roughneck strong!

Sincerely,

Jennifer Rock
Principal
