Dear Athlos Families,
We wanted to reach out and say thank you for your patience this morning with the rainy weather as we tried to ensure that your students were in the building as quickly and safely as possible.
We know that there were some concerns with students being guided around to the back gate to enter the gym to have their morning movement break facilitated by the coaches this morning.
As done in previous years, students go through the back gate and either take their morning movement break outside if the weather is conducive, or inside the gym during inclement weather. This is different from last year where the students entered in through their grade level doors for their temperature checks, which is something that we only put in place last year to support with the transition of COVID-19.
Teachers need time in the morning before school to be in their classrooms to best prepare for students and lessons. This is their sacred planning time to be the most prepared for the day to provide the finest education possible for all our students. Therefore, we provide morning movement breaks outside or in the gym, which help your children start their day ready to learn!
Again, we appreciate your understanding as we are beginning this new school year and the surprise rainy weather that graced us this morning.
Thank you for trusting us with your children. We truly love having everyone back in the building and being together again as an Athlos Family!
As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to either one of us if you ever have any questions or concerns.
Shylah Poirier and Kris Hatch
