Hello Greenville Elementary families!
Welcome back to school! With the uncertainty and concerns over the past few months, we are excited to go back to school and feel some normality in our lives. Our teachers and staff always have the students' best interest in mind. This will continue to be a focus as we work through a
start that none of us have ever experienced. We will take every measure to ensure students and staff are as safe as possible, all while receiving an excellent education. For those of you who are new to our school, please know that you are coming to a wonderful place. Our teachers and staff are caring, hardworking, and innovative. We are a collaborative and driven team as we take learning seriously and strive to make personal connections that help students succeed.

Part of our success this year will depend on having healthy students, staff members, and visitors at school. If your student is sick at all, please keep them home. We are requiring staff members to do the same. We ask that each of you have a back up plan in case students become sick at school and need to be sent home. We will be taking many extra measures to
sanitize our school on a daily basis, reduce and clean high touch points throughout the day, and social distance students as much as possible. Following the state mandate, we will be requiring students, staff, and visitors to wear masks when social distancing is not an option. We have staff members who are considered high risk or live with someone who is high risk, so we are wearing masks to help everyone in our school stay as safe as possible. We will work hard to find ways to give students a break from masks throughout the day. If your student has a physical impairment or a disability that requires them to not wear a mask, please contact me.
Dates to remember:

● August 20th - First Day of School for 1st-6th grade
● August 26th - First Day of School for Kindergarten

● School Hours: Monday-Friday 9:05-2:50 (subject to change throughout the year)
School Hours, Arrival Times, and Attendance: The school hours will be the same for Monday-Friday. The first bell rings at 9:00 a.m. Every day our school day will begin at 9:05a.m. and end at 2:50 p.m. Please be sure to have your child/children here on time. Each teacher starts the day with important curriculum-based practices. Consistently tardy students miss essential building-block skills throughout the year. Students who have excessive absences also miss critical instruction. All students who arrive tardy must sign in at the office. If your child is going to be absent, please call and inform our school office at 435-750-7888. Please help them be successful by having them in attendance as much as possible. In the interest of safety, please do not drop off your children before 8:35, as there is no supervision before that time.
Drop off and Pick Up: For drop off/pick up information, please refer to the school website under the For Parents/Greenville Handbook section.
Meal Prices and Menus: This year, school lunch will cost $2.05. Breakfast, which is served from 8:40-9:00 AM, will cost $1.40. Lunch menus will be sent home monthly and can also be accessed on our school website by clicking on the lunch icon under Quick Links . To determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced lunch, an online application can be found and filled out on the district website (www.ccsdut.org), or you may contact our office staff to get a paper application. If you qualify for free or reduced lunch, please apply for it even if you don’t want to use the service. This helps our school receive helpful Federal funding.
School Supply List: We know that these are hard economic times for many. Please do not feel obligated to buy school supplies. School supply donation lists for each grade level are available from your teachers [and on our website].
Bus Schedules: Bus schedules are available online: CCSD Bus Schedules and Boundaries. Please be advised that the schedules change during the summer and are not finalized until the week before school starts.
We look forward to working with you and your child. We can’t wait to see you!
