  • Parent Communicator - 1-Hour Late Start, Monday, March 13

    Good evening Summerville Elementary Parents, Students, and Staff,

    Our campus was hit hard by the rain this weekend. Flooding impacted several classes. Thankfully, our fantastic Maintenance Crew spent much of the day today cleaning things up and prepping things for next week's school day. We are so thankful for the dedicated and hardworking staff at our school who make learning possible every single day! This is truly the spirit of together!

    Due to continuing cleanup needs on the campus tomorrow, we are calling a 1-hour late start for Monday, March 13. The school day will start at 9:15 am. School transportation will run one hour later than regularly scheduled, and morning ASP will begin 1 hour later than regularly scheduled. All other programs are expected to happen as planned.

    With much more weather in the forecast this week, we have our eye on conditions non-stop. If things change on campus, we will send an update as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this very unusual weather season.

    Please get in touch with our school office in the morning if you have any questions.

    Thanks

    Summer School Parent Survey
    This summer, our school will offer a summer school program for all students in grades 1st-7th. To gauge the program's size this year, we ask parents to fill out our Summer School Interest Survey by Friday, March 17. Parents can access the survey at the following link: https://bit.ly/SumElSummerSchoolInterest2023.

    Summer school is planned to run from June 12 until July 7. Two different program components will be Moring Summer School (8:00 am - 12:30 pm) and Afternoon Engagement (ASP from 12:30 pm until 5:00 pm). Students may enroll in the morning program, afternoon program, or both. This survey is designed to help us gauge the scope and size of the program this year and to allow time for parents to plan for the summer. This is not enrollment in the program; this survey is for interest only. Program enrollment will occur in May. Please get in touch with our school administration if you would like more information. We are requesting that each household complete the survey this year. 

    Read to Succeed Assembly - Recheduled!
    We have rescheduled our Read-to-Suceed assembly for Thursday, March 16. We are excited to partner with the Lions Club to reward our students for their hard work and studious reading this year. Please be sure to ask your students about the assembly next week.

Because the school is currently without power for Thursday, March 2, 2023, please plan for a 2-hour school delayWe will update the school community by 7:30 am tomorrow if power is restored, and we can open the campus for the school day.

     

    The weather saga of this season continues. But, no matter what, we will work through this together. Because together, we can make a difference! Please reach out to us if we can assist in any way. And, please look for a notification tomorrow morning regarding the school day and other events on campus.

  • School Update - 2-Hour Delay and Planned Update for Wednesday, March 1, 2023

    Good evening Summerville Elementary Parents, Students, and Staff,

    The ongoing conditions in this storm have been incredible. It is hard to believe we have accumulated this much snow over just a few days. We have our eyes on the weather and conditions in our area, and we are doing our best to plan for a safe and smooth reopening as soon as it is safe.

    For Wednesday, March 1, 2023, please plan for a 2-hour school delay. We will update the school community by 7:30 am tomorrow morning if delaying 2 hours will be enough time for our campus and roads in the community to be cleared enough for safe travel to school and safe operations on campus.

    Please note: morning ASP is canceled for Wednesday, March 1. And please ensure that students arrive to campus at the school start time, not before.

    Recap: plan for a 2-hour delay on Wednesday, March 1, and we will update the school community by 7:30 am regarding the school status for the day. ‚ÄčNo morning ASP.

    Please stay safe and warm. Contact our school office in the morning if you have any questions.

    Together, we can make a difference!

    Good Evening Summerville Elementary Parents, Students, and Staff,

    We miss seeing your student and all of our families on campus! The winter weather over the last few days has disrupted our typical school day routine tremendously, but we are so thankful that our school community has remained safe. We are hopeful for better weather to arrive by the middle of this week.

    Due to the amount of snow in our school community, the cold temperatures forecasted through tomorrow, and our ability to safely open the campus in the morning, tonight, we will make the school call early. For Tuesday, February 28, 2023, we will be calling a SNOW DAY. The school campus will be closed tomorrow. All programs and athletic events will be closed for the day.

    Looking ahead at the remainder of the week, we want to do everything possible to open campus as soon as weather and road conditions permit. We will be closely assessing conditions throughout the day tomorrow and will make a determination about Wednesday by 6:00 am on March 1. Please get in touch with our school office tomorrow and leave a message if you have any questions. Our office team will get back to you as soon as they can.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding during this weather event in our area. Thanks for working together with us. We rely on collaboration from our school community. Together we are doing great things for our students at our school. We believe that together, we can make a difference!
