Hello Birney families and friends!

Today is Wednesday, so we dismiss everyone today at 1:30.  Just a reminder so that your kiddo isn’t crying in the office because everyone else got picked up. Also, a request from our very patient neighbors – please do not block driveways when you come to pick up – or drop off – please consider the neighbors! Finally, at entry and dismissal, we respectfully ask that adults in the vicinity of our students remain MASKED at all times - please - for the health and safety of all our students and their families.  

I appreciate your patience with us while we roll out this very unusual school year. The time is ripe for sniffles and sneezes, many of which stem from seasonal allergies or basic common colds, but in this time of COVID-19, we have to ask that you keep your child home if any of the COVID symptoms are present and provide a negative PCR test upon return. I remind you that you can get your doctor to certify that your child has allergies using the Certification of Chronic Condition form which can be filed with the health Office and may prevent your child from being sent home. 

Teachers are busy this week planning for a virtual ‘back-to-school’ presentation which NORMALLY happens at Family Friday. However, our plans for Family Friday have to change – we can’t ask you to tune in to a virtual Family Friday and then expect you to come pick up your kids at 3:35. I will let you know next week about our revised Back-to-School plans, but for now Family Friday is canceled, and alternative plans to share our school life with our families are in the works. Just one more cherished Birney tradition postponed because of the pandemic.

As always, a simple email to ahammondwilliams@sandi.net will get you straight to my inbox. Thanks for your support,

Ms. Amanda
