Dear Shonto Parents and Staff, 

I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and high spirits. As we navigate through the colder months and approach the end of the second grading period, I wanted to share some important information and updates with you.  

  1. Cold Weather Precautions: As the temperatures drop, it's crucial to ensure that our students are dressed appropriately for the weather. Please make sure your child is equipped with warm clothing, including jackets, hats, and gloves, to stay comfortable and protected during the colder days. Additionally, encourage them to dress in layers to adjust to varying temperatures throughout the day.  If your child needs a jacket, please let your child’s teacher know.

  2. Flu Shots: The flu season is upon us, and getting a flu shot is a highly recommended preventive measure. We encourage you to schedule a flu shot for your child at your earliest convenience. A flu shot not only helps protect your child from the flu but also contributes to the overall well-being of our school community by reducing the risk of flu outbreaks

  3. COVID-19 Prevention: Our commitment to the health and safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. We continue to follow guidelines from health authorities to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please remind your child to practice good hygiene, including regular handwashing, wearing masks as required, and maintaining social distancing when possible. If your child is feeling unwell, please keep them home and notify the school.

  4. 2nd Grading Period Ending: As we approach the conclusion of the second grading period, it's essential to ensure that your child has completed all assignments and assessments. If you have any concerns about your child's academic progress or have questions about specific assignments, please don't hesitate to reach out to your child's teachers or our school staff.  Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, January 10 and Thursday, January 11, 2024.  This will be an opportunity for us to discuss your child's progress and address any questions or concerns you may have

Thank you for your attention to these important matters. Together, we can create a safe and nurturing environment for our students to thrive. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school office. 

Wishing you and your family a healthy and joyful winter season. 

Warm Regards,

Melanie Dewakuku, K8 Principal/Superintendent
