Happy Break Week! School Resumes on Feb 22nd!
BUS STOP PROTOCOLS: FRIENDLY REMINDER
For the safety of everyone, as well as the efficient running of the bus schedule, we would like to remind everyone of protocols to follow when dropping off and picking up your kiddos from the bus stop:
- Please arrive at the bus stop at least five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled pick up or drop off
- Please remain in your vehicle until all children are loaded or unloaded from the bus
- Please form a line with other vehicles with everyone facing the same direction when waiting for the bus
- Please do not scatter (parking) throughout the parking lot or in front of the bus
- Please do not drive away from the bus stop until all students are loaded on the bus or in their vehicles
We appreciate your cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact Marty or Carol. Thank you!
FEBRUARY FAMILY ENGAGEMENT NEWSLETTER
The following is our lunch menu; we will continue to keep you updated as the menu builds.
As a reminder, attendance is taken twice each day by the teachers. We must report his is information to the State of Michigan. If your child will be absent from school, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students will be marked tardy if they arrive after 8:45.
In addition, if your child(ren) misses school because of a medical appointment, please have the doctor provide a note for our records.
PARKING LOT SYSTEM
Please enter the pickup line using the east entrance. For the safety of our students, please stay in line. Staff will dismiss students in small groups to their cars as the line moves in front of the school to keep students socially distanced. Our goal is to prevent kids from running into the parking lot without staff supervision and to move the line as quickly as possible. This will help keep as many cars from having to wait on the road as possible. We ask that if you need to chat with a teacher, please pull into the parking spots to keep the flow of traffic moving. Thank you for your cooperation.
RECESS AND LEARNING TO BE FIT – WE LOVE THE OUTDOORS!
We LOVE all of the fun things Ms. Tori has been doing and is planning for our students! As a reminder, students will be outside for both recess and Ms. Tori’s Learning to be Fit class each day that it is not raining hard and the windchill or “feels like” temperature is above 0 degrees. Please help your students dress accordingly.

COVID POSITIVE DIAGNOSIS?
In the event your child receives a positive COVID diagnosis, please make sure to contact us, immediately. We must continue to update the COVID transparency page on our website and be able to work with the health department in their contact tracing efforts.
INCLEMENT WEATHER DAYS
As we do each year, for any inclement weather delays or full day cancellations, we will follow the lead of Fennville Public Schools. We will notify our families through our Innocademy Facebook page, WOODTV, WZZM13, as well as an email.
As a reminder, should there be a 2 hour delay, we will begin school at 10:45am, instead of 8:45am. Dismissal will remain at 3:30pm for that day.
Also, we are not planning to flip to remote learning during one-day delays or cancellations. Should there be an extended weather event over the course of several days, and we have the opportunity to prepare for it, we will be in communication with you should we make the decision to transition to remote learning at that point.
