Principal's Message

Friday, April 9, 2021

Who is ready for Monday?!  I can tell you this much: here at Bernabi, we are ALL ready!  Students are excited, staff is psyched and your principal is jumping for joy!  That said, I do have some extremely important notes and reminders for you to know as we transition:

Qualtrics daily health screenings: plainly, these are more important than ever as we process twice as many reports each morning.  Starting on Monday, families who have opted for four days of in-person instruction will receive the screening e-mail on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, while our remote families will not receive the Daily Health Screen emails.  My plea for support: please be sure to complete your child(ren)’s daily health screenings each morning no later than 8:15 am

Daily drop off: while we practiced with our blue and gold groups this week, shifting our drop off site to the opposite side of the building (along Bernabi Road off of 31) is a huge undertaking and will absolutely result in delays.  Thank you in advance for your patience and support as we attempt this with all families for the first time next week.

Daily pick up: again, our practice rounds this week went smoothly, but the elephant in the room is this: we will have twice as many families picking up their children each day, and we simply don’t have twice as many parking spaces.  Thank you again for your patience and support as we figure this out together next week.  I anticipate that many parents will need to park along Bernabi Road, on the open gravel that leads up to the building.  Good thing Spring has sprung!

Wednesdays: a reminder that for our hybrid families, Wednesdays are now asynchronous and will not include Zooms. 

Specials: cool news, we’re finally getting kids back into their specials settings!  Cohorting remains a priority but we were able to set these rooms up the same way we have set each classroom up based on the new, reduced class sizes K-5.

Lunches: a shift that students like (and request) more than you think; all lunches will now be eaten in classrooms.  Teachers have worked closely with our aide and cafeteria staff to ensure that student health, safety and cleaning are our top priorities, both in terms of Covid protocols as well as with respect to known food allergies. 

Enjoy the weekend and I know I’ll be seeing many of you on Monday!
