Dear Panther Families,
What an amazing first week back-to-school! It’s been great to see our students in the actual school building: watching them reconnect to each other, their teachers and in-person learning. Uniformly, our students have been respectful, responsible and safe during our first week of school!
Here are a few important notes and reminders;
1. There is NO SCHOOL tomorrow (Friday) or this coming Monday. This weekend is a four-day weekend for students. The school office is open from 8-3 on Friday, September 3rd.
2. Picture Day at Parkwood-Upjohn Elementary will be postponed. InterState Photography, our Picture Day vendor for this school year has assured us that they can comfortably meet our requirements for this year’s Picture Day but will not be ready to do so by the original date, Tuesday, September 7th. Once a new date has been confirmed, I will share this information with you.
All Picture Day orders are still valid and will be honored. You may continue to order pictures online and those orders will be honored. If you have ordered pictures online, you will still receive your order once we have held Picture Day. If you have already returned a physical Picture Day order to the office, your order will be honored. If you planned to place an order by physically sending money with your child to the school next week, please refrain from doing so at this time. Once the new Picture Day date has been established, we will be able to set in motion a revised ordering process.
Thank you for your patience and for helping make Picture Day, and this school year, a tremendous success for our students at Parkwood-Upjohn.
3. Student paperwork packets have been sent home with students. Make sure to return the “Household Income” form. It is very important for our record-keeping and school funding that all families return this form with their child to school.
3. If your student is a Car Rider, thank you for staying in your car while picking up your child. If you wish to walk to the school to pick up your child, please communicate with your child’s teacher that you will be picking up in the front of the school near the Upjohn Community Garden.
Have a great weekend,
