Welcome back Madeira Beach Fundamental students and staff. I hope you had a fun, happy and healthy winter break.
We hope that you will make it your new years resolution to join us in the car line each morning and afternoon (if you have not already been doing so). This considerte act would make our friends in the business community, the surrounding neighborhood and me so happy. We love the opportunity get to know you and put faces to our students and families. And speaking of the return to school, our middle grades students will be directed to report to their December first period class to receive their new schedule for the second semester.
As you may know, COVID-19 case counts and positivity rates have been rising throughout the nation, Florida and Pinellas County. Please continue to monitor yourself and your family closely for any sign of potential illness. Students and staff should remain home if they are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. We need your cooperation and support to ensure that we continue to have a safe and productive school year. As a result, we are amending our required January PTSA or SAC parent meeting schedule to include only virtual opportunities. You will receive meeting links in the near future. If you are looking for a face to face meeting option, on January 24th we will be hosting a Community Partner Night to celebrate businesses in our community. You can receive meeting credit all while helping raise funds for the Manta Store. From 5:00P – 8:00P, plan on stopping by one of our business partners, enjoy some yummy food and receive January Meeting credit. The locations are to be announced.
We will see you bright and early Tuesday morning in carline. Thank you.
