THE GRAPEVINE, Sept. 2, 2020
And the school year begins!
Toddlers and Early Childhood students started school on Tuesday, while their older schoolmates visited classrooms. Thursday, Sept. 3, is the first day of school for Elementary through High School students, all remote for now. It is also the first day of on-campus child care for Elementary students.
Thank you to all who sent photos of their students in this first week of school. We’re so happy to see all of the faces, both familiar and new.
“He went in with a smile on his face, said goodbye, and didn't even look back!” said parent Adriana of Aedan, new to the Fig class. Lindsay said her kindergartner Thea was “very excited to see her Oak teachers and classmates (in person).”
Horalia said son Alexander was very excited on Tuesday to join the Apple class. Mary said her Oak student Benjamin, had “fun at school” on Tuesday.
“Wyatt jumped out of the car he was so excited!” Nicolette said.

High school students chalk up visit days
Ash students returned to campus in small groups on Tuesday and Wednesday for visit days. During a collaborative chalk art activity, students stayed socially distanced in separate parking spaces. Each minute, they moved to the next space over and added to the previous artists’ drawing.
Staff greet students, plan and are treated to lunch
Masked and carefully socially distanced, staff taught, provided child care, greeted visiting students, led activities, planned lessons and directed traffic over the past three days. Thank you to parent Jenifer Alyazdi, who provided Panera lunches for staff on Tuesday.
