Cloverdale Newsletter

Dear Cloverdale Families,

YES! YES! YES! The day is here where we are going to be full time with kids!! We are so excited that this is happening! We have all safety/COVID protocols in place and we are ready to open safely. I have to say that I am very excited about the upcoming year. We have many things planned for your students and this community. If you don't know, our motto at Cloverdale is, “It's Not Luck, But Hard Work! This motto is woven deeply into our DNA, I will give more specifics of what this means throughout the year. This year, our staff also has a personal motto of “It’s GROW TIME!”, meaning we are going to hit the ground running so we get to grow our kids up in academics, as well as, socially and emotionally. It seems like forever since we had kids full time and the staff are chomping at the bit to get them in their classrooms.

Below are a couple things that need to be covered before the first day of school.

  • Drop off is @ 7:30am at the bottom parking lot/gate. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE UPPER PARKING LOT! Parents will not be allowed to drop off kids in the classroom. Kindergarten will be the expectation when they start on the 13th.
  • Masks indoors are mandatory, kids will not be able to attend if they do not wear one. If this is an issue, contact Mr. Dyer ASAP.
  • Breakfast is free to ALL students. They will eat under the play shed before school.
  • Class starts at 7:50am
  • Lunch is free to ALL students. Students may bring their own lunch.
  • Pick up is @ 2:20pm. Please make sure that Miss Shelly is aware of your student’s normal routine. (bus or pick up).
  • If your student’s regular routine is different, please notify Miss Shelly by 1:00pm. Of course emergencies happen, but please try to stick to this.
  • Make sure you pay for your school supplies with Miss Shelly.
  • Make sure you have the right bus route information. See Miss. Shelly’s email.
  • Friday the 10th is Cloverdale Spirit Day, so wear your Cloverdale gear, if you do not have any yet, wear green or navy blue.
  • For after school program contact Jackie Lovell @ (541)979-0264

That is it for the first day/week of school, can't wait to see you. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

One more thing, my biggest goal this year is to bring our community together. There will be many opportunities for this to happen. The first two will be first, September 16th which will be an open house. Bring the kids, meet your teachers, and get a snack. Second, is a school beautification day Saturday September 25th. Bring your rakes, shovels, power washers, and garden tools to clean up our campus and plan for future school projects. This is our school, and a reflection of our community. Let's let people see how we value our community.

Ok that's it I promise, see you all Tuesday at the gate! It's going to be an awesome year!! Remember, it’s not luck but hard work!
