Howard Elementary School

Hybrid phase-in begins next week!

Good Afternoon,

This is a reminder that Monday, March 1st, the hybrid transition phase-in will begin. We are excited to see our Kindergarten-Second grade students at Howard in-person next week! Please note that third-fifth grade students will need to begin logging into Zoom at 8:40 am on Monday, March 1st. For your convenience, I have summarized the most important recent blog posts with all the information you will need: entry/exit doors and staggered times per grade level, the screener that you must go through daily before sending your child to school, the District Mask Policy, the informational hybrid parent presentation, and finally the calendar for the next month at a glance.

Have a great weekend!

COVID 19 Screener:

Please be sure to go through the checklist each time before your child enters the school building. Covid-19 English screening tool checklist (Arabic).
