  1. Instructional Model Changes: Beginning on Monday, January 4, 2021, you will be able to complete the survey below to change the model of instruction your child receives (hybrid or full remote). This survey will be open from January 4, 2021 until January 8, 2021. We will then work with transportation to review the requested changes. Changes will take effect at the beginning of the second semester, February 1, 2021. We will also be in touch to confirm requested changes have been made during the last few weeks of January. If you do not want to change your child’s instructional model, you do not need to complete the survey.

  2. New Pick up procedure (Beginning January 4, 2021):  In an effort to improve our parent pickup procedure in the afternoon, we will be making some changes to our pick up process. If your child is in 6th grade, please pick them up on the side of the building in the parking lot near the high school. If you have children in 6th grade and another grade at Cosgrove, please use this lot as well.  Our hope is that this will make our dismissal more efficient for everyone. This change will go into effect beginning on January 4, 2021.

  3. Five week grades: Today marks the end of the first five weeks of the second quarter. On Wednesday, December 23, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. five week progress reports will be available for you to view in the Infinite Campus Back Pack.  After reviewing your child’s grades, please reach out to teachers directly with any questions or concerns.

  4. Lunch/Breakfast: Lunch and breakfast will be provided free of charge for all students for the remainder of the school year.

  5. Cosgrove Yearbook (reminder from last week): With the holidays coming up, this is a great time to purchase your child’s yearbook. The 2020-21 school year is a year like no other! There may not be extra books for sale after the March deadline, so the only way to guarantee a copy of your book is to order ahead of time! Please click the link to order yours:

This will be my last update until January 8, 2021. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your family. While this has been the most interesting/challenging/stressful/crazy (I could keep going) year ever, I am eternally grateful for your kind words, continued support, and partnership. I am confident that better times are ahead and look forward to those days. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need anything.

 

Take care,

Jim
