Thanksgiving Lunch

 The Perrine kitchen crew makes a delicious Thanksgiving lunch.  It is something that staff, students, and community members look forward to sharing each fall.  This year, the Perrine kitchen will serve Thanksgiving lunch twice the week before Thanksgiving, once for Track A students and once for Track B students.  (Subject to change based on our color status at that time.)  Food service, including Thanksgiving lunch, are not open to our parents or community.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Thank you, Perrine parents and teachers.  We strive to have parent-teacher conferences for 100% of our students.  That takes dedication and effort in the best of times.  This year we fell a bit short.  We had parent-teacher conferences for 93% of our students.    It is not too late.  If you are one of the 7% that could not make it to a conference in October, please contact your child’s teacher.

Safety Matters

Perrine has had five confirmed cases of a person being at school during the contagious stages. No spread amongst the staff or students was reported in conjunction with any of the cases. This is encouraging. It suggests that school measure to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 through contact at school have thus far been successful.  It is my hope that not only will we keep Covid at bay, but also, we will reduce the spread of the common cold and other contagious ailments typical for this time of year. 

As for Covid, we continue to adjust our safety measures based on the data and new information.  At this time, we are working on protocols for use of the Big Toy area of the playground.  Protocols will include sanitation and social distancing measures that reflect the information we have about spread through contact with surfaces in outdoor settings.

We will continue attendance by track through November 9th provided there are no drastic changes in conditions.  The school board will assess the situation at their November 9th board meeting.
