Principal's Message

May 6, 2020

Dear Betty Jane Families,

As we transition into the last few weeks of school I wish to take a moment to thank each family member who has stepped up to support our young learners as they continued their education through this virtual learning experience. I know the task was not easy for teachers, parents, caregivers, and our young learners. Together we made a tough time much easier by communicating and offering continued support to each other daily. Although there have been opportunities for us to see each other virtually, nothing replaces the human contract that we so dearly took for granted prior to the COVID-19 era. It was refreshing to see everyone during our Betty Jane Teacher Parade on Monday. I can only hope that our children appreciated the event as much as the staff did. 


Communication regarding the closing of the school year and distribution of student items will be posted and shared via all-call messages. At this time we are planning on having students pick up materials on the Tuesday and Wednesday after Memorial Day. On Tuesday, May 26th, students whose last name begins with the letters A-H may come pick up their personal effects. On Wednesday,  May 27th, students with last names beginning with the letters I-Z may come to the building to retrieve their personal items. We will have items bagged and placed in the cafeteria, so it will be easy for your child to come in on his or her own to pick up their things. Any non-consumable textbooks, classroom library books, and school library books should be returned at this time. We will still be observing measures for social distancing, so we will allow students into the building in shifts. Items such as spring pictures will be distributed as soon as they arrive, and final report cards will be mailed home.  Until then, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher. We are here, and we are thinking of you all. Stay safe, and stay well.

Sincerely,

Ms. Lucas

CURT- Can you please proofread for me and make any needed revisions?


Hello Betty Jane Families! It looks like we are heading into the winter season with vigor! This is just a reminder for families to use the loop if the traffic is to the end of the curb which runs along the front of the school, or if there are folks who are already waiting in line from the other direction to drop their child off. I just want to ensure that there are no traffic backups into Darrow Road which may prohibit any of our Betty Jane Family Members from entering into our lot safely. This is especially a concern as road conditions become icy and stopping distances are affected. The safety and well being of our entire Batty Jane family is our top concern.

Also, just a reminder regarding dress down days. Every Friday is school spirit-wear day. This means that students may wear Betty Jane/ Ellet apparel but they must also must wear uniform bottoms.  Spirit day Fridays are not a full dress down day because students must still wear uniform bottoms. I thank you all for working with us on a daily basis to provide our children with the very best educational opportunities. Your continual reinforcement at home on the skills students obtain at school are necessary to continue showing increased academic success.
