    Principal’s Message

    Dear Curlew Creek Coyote Families,

    Thanks to everyone who participated in our honk by car parade route last Sunday. We loved seeing you and your encouraging messages on your great signs as we drove by! Check out the video of the cars on our PTA Facebook page.

    Report cards for Quarter 3 will not be printed. Grades are now posted online and viewable in FOCUS.

    Friday April 10th is an observed holiday. Students and staff do not have school. Assignments will not be posted for your student on this day.

    We have distributed all of our Curlew Creek digital devices, and have had an increase in student online attendance during our first week of virtual school. Thank you for ensuring your students go online each day to their Microsoft Teams classrooms to do their daily check-in assignment and class assignments. Students have the entire day to check-in and do assignments. We realize that family circumstances may require students to do their schoolwork outside of regular school hours.
    Teachers are available online for students during the hours of 9AM-11:30AM, and 1PM-3:30PM. Parents may communicate with teachers and staff via email.
    Our Child Study Team will continue to reach out to families of students who are not connecting regularly with their teacher. If you are still in need of a device, please contact me, then our Social Worker will connect you with a PCS distribution site.

    We have been made aware that some of the PCS devices, particularly iPads, did not have the full Microsoft suite (e.g. word, ppt, etc.) installed. PCS TIS has pushed out an update for all district devices. This should now be available. In addition, instructions for downloading free Microsoft products for all PCS families are available on the Student and Family Digital webpage:

    I’d like to give a shout out to our PRIDE Award students who would have been recognized at a ceremony at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
    Congratulations to:
    Martino Toy - Mathematics
    Tyson Hammer - Science
    Faye Collard – Social Studies
    Wendy Pope – Writing

    Summer Bridge will be at Curlew Creek. You may register your child online through FOCUS.

    The US Census dates back all the way to the Founding Fathers and the US Constitution. Why? Because our system of democracy is meant to represent the people who live in our country, and the Census makes sure that everyone is accounted for when it comes to the services our cities, states, and federal government provides. Please make sure to complete your Census forms, whether online, on the phone, or by mail. Completing your Census form means that our school district will continue to get the funds we need to support the education of all of our children. Every one us counts, from the youngest to the oldest.

    Thank you for your support and patience during this school transition. You have been amazing. Our Coyote community rocks!
