A Message from Principal Keegan
My apologies for the tardiness in this communication as I have had many raw emotions this past week. Racism and injustice are not values of Discovery Elementary and we will not remain silent. I am heartbroken and sickened by the loss of life and the persistent unequal treatment of the Black community. As a parent, I have struggled to find the words to explain recent violence and unrest to my children, but I am trying nonetheless, because change is impossible if we shy away from these hard conversations.
Discovery elementary is committed to:
- Listen, learn and be vulnerable as this an opportunity to act.
- Being an anti-racist ally, and advocate for our students, families and staff.
- Making sure EVERY student feels welcome respected and loved, especially our students of color.
- Collaborate with you and learn from you.
- Continue to reflect and educate ourselves around racism, equity, diversity and inclusion.
- YOUR child and family
We believe that this is also an opportunity for us to do better. Our staff has and will continue to do the necessary work to educate ourselves around racism, injustice, privilege, and diversity. We also recognize the importance of listening. I ask our Black students and Black families to share with us how you are being affected; what support do you need? What would you like to have happen in this moment and beyond? We are willing and ready to dialogue in the name of change and progress.
YEAR END INFO
Please read the information below regarding important June dates
June 15th – June 19th we will be facilitating a time to gather your child’s personal belongings and wrap up the school year.
Your pick up time is designated by grade level. This may mean you need to come by the school more than one time. This is a chance to wave good bye to teachers and staff by grade level.
At your designated time, you may come to Discovery to pick up your materials. You will enter the pick up/drop off lane where a drive through line will be set up to pick up materials. During this process we ask that people stay in their cars and allow us to bring the bag to you. This will also help us to move people through in as quick and efficient a manner as possible while maintaining social distancing. When you pick up your materials, please be prepared to share the last name of your child.
You will be able to pick up medications at this time if you have them at school.
Lastly, in order to expedite delivery of these items in a timely manner and to keep cars moving while implementing the state’s social distancing guidelines, we will not be able to socialize or help trouble shoot other concerns as you pick-up items through the pick up/drop off lane (the front of the school). We want to ensure everyone will be able to get their items without any delays within their designated time slots. If you have classroom books or anything you would like to give your teacher, you are welcome to do so at your drop off time.
Thank you for understanding.
