Siler City Elementary School Families,
We appreciate your patience as snow days disrupted the operations of our schools this week. As always, our focus is on the safety of each one of your children. Please monitor your email/phone messages carefully to ensure you have up to date information on our school’s closures/delays. If you are not receiving messages from Chatham County Schools related to closures/delays, please send an email to Itzel Ocelot so we can update your information in Powerschools. Ms. Ocelot’s email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Relatedly, if our school is on a 1, 2, or 3 hour delay, please remember that kids cannot be dropped off at our normal time starting at 7:30. For a 1 hour delay, kids may be dropped off starting at 8:30. The time is 9:30 for a two hour delay, and 10:30 for a three hour delay. We certainly understand the hardship that this may cause you all, but our staff must respect the delay times as well and if you drop your child off early, we will not have staff here to supervise your children.
As a reminder, the last day of school for our Holiday Break is Wednesday, December 19th. Wednesday, December 19th had originally been scheduled as an early release day, but due to the snow days last week, it will now be a full school day. While our schools still remain on track to exceed the 1,025 hours of instruction required by law, this change will allow us to recover and “bank” a small bit of calendar flexibility during the winter months ahead. As always, if you have questions, please contact us. Thank you for your continued support and flexibility.
Referrals for evaluation for AIG (The Academically or Intellectually Gifted Program) are being accepted now through Jan 11th. The Academically or Intellectually Gifted Program serves the individual needs of students who are highly advanced learners or are intellectually gifted. Referral forms can be requested from Merilee Chesney, your child’s teacher, or from Itzel at the front office. Please contact Ms. Chesney if you have any questions about AIG or referring your child. Her email address is: email@example.com.
We wish for you all a happy and peaceful Holiday Season. We hope you have time to enjoy family and friends and that you all do lots of reading!
Dr. Larry Savage
