Dear Plan Bee Academy Families,
We are super excited to start yet another fall at Plan Bee! These continue to be challenging times with the current COVID variant and ever-changing rules and expectations. We are still working to maintain the health and safety of you, your child and our staff and families. We ask that if your child is sick to keep them home. Please send in extra hand sanitizer for use in the classrooms. We continue to encourage our students to wear masks however understand that not all will so if you want your child to wear a mask, please send one in along with your expectations for your child. We ask that you send in water bottles as we are still not utilizing the water foundations to decrease the spread of COVID 19.
You will be contacted if your child has been exposed to anyone in school with confirmed case of COVID-19. If your child has been exposed to anyone outside of school, please contact Nurse Brandi. She works with the local health department on each case. The local health department dictates what is required related to testing and quarantining. These directives may not be exactly in line with the CDC and in most cases are stricter due to the population of students we serve. Please be patient. I understand the frustration if your child requires time out of school based on direction from the local health department. Virtual instruction will be available during times of required quarantine. If your child is vaccinated, please send a copy of the card to school for your child’s record.
We will be holding our open house and Expo on Tuesday, September 14, from 5-7. This will be a time to meet the classroom staff as well as to see some of our students’ projects. We do require all visitors to wear face coverings while in the building. Light refreshments will be available.
Lastly, we will be holding our live and silent auction fundraiser here at Plan Bee Academy on Saturday, October 9, 2021 starting at 5:00PM. Tickets can be purchased on line through the at planbeeacademy.org. Tickets include cocktail hour, silent auction, live auction, food, music and dancing. All proceeds will go towards a covered patio/pavilion area at the back of our school for the students to enjoy lunch or activities.
