John M. Sexton Elementary


  • Dear Sexton Parents,

     As you know, the situation surrounding COVID-19 is rapidly changing.  How we have come together as a community to support our students says so much about our school.  During the week of May 18th, the school buildings will be open at designated times for parents to collect any belongings left at school. We recognize this process may not be optimal or perfect, but we need to follow state and district guidelines for safety.  Thank you for your patience and support during this extraordinary time as we try to close the school year.

    The safety, health and well-being of our students, families, staff and community are of the utmost importance.  To provide clarification during the week of May 18th, we will be using the bus circle to distribute items.   Please review the chart for times and expectations below.

    When you arrive at school, please use our bus circle to pick up items.  A staff member will greet you at your vehicle.  Please stay in your car and your child’s items will brought to you.  Please note that we will do our best to return all your child’s items.  However, items that are not school related and not labeled will not be considered a priority.  You may communicate with your child’s teacher for specific items by May 15.


    Sincerely, Tony Pleshe
