    Message Sent to Whitaker Families on 3/12/20

    Dear Whitaker Families,

    We find ourselves in unique circumstances. Our priority remains to protect and educate. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support as we apply local and state directives specifically to our school.

    Earlier messages from WSFCS's district office suspended the volunteer program and limits visitation and access to the school building.

    • Leave students at the front door, no lobby access at arrival or dismissal
    • No guests allowed in classrooms, mystery readers and the like
    • Tutoring by volunteers is suspended
    • Suspension of lunch with students

    If you need to meet with your student, contact the office and they will work to arrange a private place to meet.

    Additionally, late this afternoon, large group meetings are not allowed. Our after-school groups like Whitaker Chorus, Art Studio, Trailblazers, Wheel Power, etc. will not meet until these restrictions are lifted. Additionally, outside groups - Crazy Running and Kinderspanish will not be meeting.

    Imprints Cares, our before and after-school provider will continue to operate normal hours.

    Upcoming events like the Talent Show and Derby Day are indefinitely postponed.

    Our students will be disappointed. Along with us, assure them that a normal routine will resume after we weather this health event. This is a temporary way of doing things.

    Our Whitaker school family will band together, making safety a priority and learning moving forward. Thank you for all the appreciation shown this week to our Superhero educators. In each act and kind word, we feel your genuine gratitude and belief in the work we ALL do on behalf of our children.

    Remain Calm and Wash Hands!

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Creasy & Whitaker Staff
