    Weekly Update 10/25/21


    Learning is Our Superpower!

     Dear Curlew Creek Coyote Families,

      Consent forms were sent home last week with kindergarten, first and third grade students for our school’s upcoming vision, hearing, and growth and development screenings. Please review the form, complete, sign and return the form to school. All consent forms must be returned to the school by Friday, October 29th. If you did not receive a consent form or have questions, please contact the school nurse. If consent forms are not returned by Friday, October 29th, your child will not receive these services.

      Last week there were more than 300 tardies and early pick-ups! That’s an excessive amount of learning loss! Far too many students are missing instruction at the beginning and end of the school day! It’s important that your student arrives at school before 8:40 and is picked up at the designated dismissal time to prevent loss of instructional time. Please try to schedule all student appointments after school hours to avoid missing school. If you have an appointment that requires early pick up, please present the school office with a doctor’s note.

      Tomorrow is Motivational Monday. Remember to wear a shirt with inspirational or kind words, or wear something orange to support our focus on being kind and positive toward others.

      Join us tomorrow, Monday, October 25th at Chick-fil-a Countryside for our drive-thru Spirit Night from 5-7 p.m.

      Fridays are School Spirit days so remember to wear your favorite Coyote t-shirt or our school colors!

      Our Move-a-thon was a blast! Students had a fun time, and they are excited to hear the fundraising class and student winners announced at the end of the month! PTA thanks you for your incredible support. It’s not too late to turn in your donations to help us reach our goal. The money collection deadline is October 28th .

      Everyone is invited to join us at Trunk or Treat for some Halloween Family Fun on Friday, October 29th , from 6:30-8 p.m.! Thanks for the candy donations and keep it coming! We also need volunteers, and we would love to have more Trunk Decorators to add more fun to this exciting event, so please sign up! We look forward to seeing you there!

      A big thanks to our PTA for providing our Coyote Communication folders. Our wonderful PTA volunteers fill these weekly to send home on Fridays. Please empty and review the contents before returning to school on Monday. Thanks for staying in the know!

      Stay tuned to our school marquee, our school website , and our PTA website and Facebook page, to keep updated with school information throughout the year.

          Remember, Learning is Our Superpower!

    Super Coyote- Learning is our Super Power










    Dear Curlew Creek Elementary School families,


      Thank you for reaching out to us with your concerns. We assure you that the safety and security of our students is our top priority. When a confirmed positive case is reported to the school, it is then reported to the district’s COVID Team and the Department of Health-Pinellas to further investigate. There’s a process in place to help identify and contact those individuals directly impacted as quickly as possible.

      Pinellas County Schools has Wellness Protocols in place under its Guiding Practices and Protocols Fall-2021 to help keep students safe and healthy this school year. The district strongly recommends the use of masks by all students, staff and visitors as part of a multi-layered approach to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We encourage everyone to wash and sanitize their hands regularly, distance to the greatest extent possible, get vaccinated if eligible, and stay home if you are not feeling well. The school and district staff are making sure our facilities and high touch surfaces are cleaned and disinfected, and our air filters and ventilation follow recommended guidelines. We have masks and hand sanitizer readily available in classrooms and on school buses for anyone in need.

      I will continue communicating updates to you in my weekly Sunday night School Messenger calls. If we all do our part, we will have a healthy and successful school year.

      Thank you for your support.
