Principal's Message: August 31, 2021
Hello Taylor Owls,
Hopefully, you are receiving your class assignments in the mail. They were mailed last week. Our teachers have been busy introducing themselves via phone and email. If you haven't responded to your teacher, please do so as soon as possible.
Check in the School News below for the Welcome Back letter that was sent in the mail. It outlines Meet and Greet expectations and first day of school information. Please read it carefully.
Meet & Greet Entry Locations (Crowd sizes will be controlled. Please be patient and don't forget your mask) Please understand that this event is only to drop off supplies and meet the teacher in person. Please keep your visit brief to allow other families to enter.
- PreK - Grade 1: Report to the classroom's outside access door along Matoaka Ave (by our side playground). Look for your teacher's sign.
- G2-3: Report to front doors.
- G4-5: Report to back doors in staff parking lot.
- Multiple kids: Report to the front doors.
Also, please click this link to complete a Transportation Survey for your student. It is important that we know how your child will be coming to school and going home from school. To avoid confusion, please start your intended plan on the first day of school. If you are sending your student to school on the bus, please put them on the bus for the first day of school. Bus routes should be published on the NPS website soon.

TECHNOLOGY CHECK OUT: We will be distributing Chromebooks to all new students. You can check out your child's device at the Meet and Greet. Please go to the front door where you'll be directed to the device check out area. If your child turned in their device last year, they can also check out a device during Meet and Greet. If you can't come to Meet and Greet, a device will be issued on the first day of school. No Worries
Thanks for your patience and support.
