Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! While the return to school this year brings many unprecedented challenges, our team is looking forward to returning to the building and getting our kids together again. As you know, we will be starting the school year using a “hybrid” learning model. As part of this model, students will be able to attend school in person two days a week while working virtually from home the other three days. Below you will find the name of your child’s teacher, their assigned cohort, and whether or not you have requested district transportation for the 2020-2021 school year.



Student Name

Teacher’s Name


District Transportation




Cohort A – In school on Mondays & Thursdays

Cohort B – In school on Tuesdays & Fridays

Cohort C – In school on Monday, Tuesdays, Thursdays, & Fridays

Cohort D – Remote Learning


The first day of school for students is Monday, September 14th. In preparation for this, your child’s teacher will be holding a “Virtual Meet the Teacher” program on Friday, September 11th from 11:30 – 12 pm.  The specific information and link for this will be sent out at a later date. Please make plans to join us at this time.


Also, our building schedule has been adjusted this year to allow for disinfecting of school buses and to minimize traffic congestion a during pick up and drop. Our building times will be as follows:


                        9:20      Bus Arrival and Walker Drop off

                        9:30      Considered Late


                        3:45      Walker Pick-up

                        3:55      Bus Dismissal

                        4:00      Buses leave the EE lot


If you are transporting your child to and/or from school this year, drop off and pick up will be at the locations identified on the back of this letter. All families will stay in their vehicle and students will need to put on their mask prior to entering the building. At the end of the day, students will be dismissed at 3:45 and will meet cars in the pick-up circle. Once again, we ask that you remain in your vehicle. We will be giving each family that will be picking up students a set of tags to be used for identification purposes.


For students utilizing district transportation, the Transportation Center will be sending out a letter soon with busing information.  If you have any questions about the bus, please call the Transportation Center at 453-0287. 




Daily breakfast will be provided for all students in our classrooms. Lunch will be provided for those interested every day.  Breakfast and lunch for those qualifying will be sent home for remote learning days. Payment for accounts can be done online.


On behalf of the entire staff at Elmcrest Elementary, I hope you and your family enjoy these last few days of summer. I am looking forward to a great year. If you have questions or need help please reach out!

Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions. How Can I Help?
