Dear Carrillo Families,

I’m sending my newsletter a little early this week to remind everyone that we have a long weekend ahead for Labor Day. There will be no school this Monday. I hope everyone enjoys some quality time with their families! Here are a few reminders for what’s ahead.

Pledge Drive Continues

We are off to a great start with the Pledge Drive! Please see the attached flyer and consider participating. We appreciate your support.

Special Election: Carrillo Polling Location

Carrillo will be a polling location next week. Our Multipurpose Room will be used from September 10th-15th for voting activity. On Friday, 9/10, they will be setting up. Voting will take place from Saturday-Tuesday. Finally, the poll workers will break down on 9/15.

The voting activity will take place on one-half of the MPR (closer to the parking lot). We will block off the "school side" of the MPR with partitions to ensure breakfast and lunch service will not be interrupted, and students will not come in contact with any poll workers or voters. All poll workers and voters are required to wear masks while indoors at all times.

Students that arrive for breakfast at 8 am on these days will need to enter campus through the black gate and use the school entrance to the MPR.

Morning Play Zones

1st-5th-grade students that arrive between 8:15-8:45 are free to play before school starts. Students in each grade are assigned to specific zones to reduce the amount of contact between grade levels, spread students out throughout the play areas, and lessen the chances of injury/collision between “big” and “little” students. Please review the before-school play schedule below with your child so they know where to head in the morning.

Lunch and Contact Tracing

Due to the local health requirement to contact trace following every COVID positive exposure, we will be returning to having students eat lunch with their classmates only. Students will continue to be allowed to play with anyone in the grade level before school, lunch, and recess. However, to ensure we can accurately track close contacts in the event of a COVID positive, we are asking students to eat lunch with their classmates. We are also going to mark the seats on the tables so that students can space out to the greatest extent possible.

Plan for Rainy Days Lunch

On rainy days, students will eat outdoors under the covered areas. We will have one-grade level eat first as the other remains in their room for indoor activities (with masks remaining on). Although students will be safe from the rain while eating, they will be traveling through campus and eating outside, so please have your student wear appropriate clothing on rainy days.
