Dear Parents:

We are off to a great start with very high attendance on-line!  We’re happy that students are taking “virtual” school seriously and letting us know what they need, from calculators to chargers.  We appreciate everyone who is making the classes go so well, and your support in making sure your children are attending class and doing their work.

Beginning today March 18, we will be in front of the school between 3-4 pm to distribute To-Go bags that include both breakfast and lunch.  Your child can pick up the food and take it home.  Even if it’s not their favorite meal, there may be other family members or neighbors who would like this freshly made food without having to go out themselves. 

If you have additional needs, about food or anything else during this challenging time, please email us at S2helps@schoolinthesquare.org  The messages are confidential.  We’re here to help.
