Principal Monday Message

Hello Coopertown Families. 

Today is Monday, March 1st.  This is Ms. Mastrocola and this is your Monday Message.

I am sending this email a little earlier than usual so that you have time today to please submit your preference for your child’s instructional model by 6 PM this evening. This was asked of you in an email sent last Thursday by the district.  This information is very important for our planning. Thank you for your attention to this.

The car drop off line went really well today.  I want to reiterate a couple of things to make sure we all stay safe:

1- Please do not try to pull out early from the car line if your child has already left the car.  The entire line will pull out together when all kids have exited.

2- If you pull up  to the back of the line and the line ahead has already emptied their passengers, please wait for them to pull away and you will be asked to pull up to the first staff monitor.  Mr. Camacho will be at the end of the car line and will be giving this direction.  

3- Children can enter the Kindergarten entrance, the main lobby entrance or the side glass door entrance by the gym.  All three of these entrances will be monitored by adults.  If your child is arriving late, please have them use the front main lobby entrance.  Late would be any time after 9:00.

4- It is ok to approach the school on Highland Ave. and make a right hand turn into the car line.  Please feel free to use this approach if it is more convenient.

I want to again thank you for your attention to this new process.  It went very smoothly this morning!

Lots of great things going on this month at Coopertown!  We are celebrating Read Across America - which starts tomorrow- with a lot of different reading activities planned by our librarian, Mrs. Mulhern, and individual teachers in their classrooms.  In addition, we are celebrating Women’s History Month with a lot of great resources that will be introduced to our children during social studies classes.

The weather is turning nicer and we are finally seeing some green grass on the fields here at Coopertown!  It won’t be long until we’re outside running around on our fields.  Please remember that we encourage our children to do this, so there might be some muddy shoes and pants coming your way!  My apologies in advance!

Finally, there is a school board meeting this Thursday evening at 7:30 PM. The live access link can be found on our district website.

Have a wonderful evening, Coopertown!
