Greetings Obama Families,
This is just a reminder that school will begin for students on Monday, August 2, 2021 at 7:45 a.m. Please remember that today is the last day to inform the district that you want your child to remain virtual for the first semester. Please read the guidelines for virtual learning carefully before you opt out of face-to-face instruction. Once you commit to virtual learning, you will have to stick with it through the entire first semester (August-December, 2021). Recently, the Board of Education decided that masks will be required for all DeKalb staff and students, so please make sure that your students are prepared.
On next Wednesday, July 28, 2021 between 12 noon and 3 p.m., we will have our Open House. During Open House, you will have an opportunity to meet your child's teacher and visit the actual classrooms. Schedules will be given as you enter the building and you will also have an opportunity to meet support staff (administrators, counselors, support specialists, coaches, sponsors, etc...), retrieve bus/transportation information, purchase spirit wear for Fridays and join our wonderful PTO for only $10. We are requiring students to wear uniforms Monday through Thursday of each week. Students may wear spirit wear or other appropriate attire on Fridays. Please review the attached information that provides additional details for this school year. We look forward to meeting you next week! This is going to be an awesome year!
