Dear Hope Wildcat Families,
We are SUPER excited to see you! Please join us on the ‘grassy knoll’ in front of
Hope Elementary School for a “Meet the Teacher” and drop off your children’s school
supplies in our designated drop zones on Wednesday, September 2nd from 4:30 to 6:30.
We scheduled a two hour time span to give people a broader time to drop by and hopefully
avoid larger groups of people.If you can make it on the earlier end, please do so.
We expect all family members to wear face coverings especially when you cannot maintain
at least a 6 foot distance. Thank you for helping us follow our school district expectations
for the “Yellow” Level of COVID operation. We want to start our school year safe and
keep it safe.
Our teachers will be arranged in an arc on the grassy area for an easy visual and to accommodate
social distancing. Each teacher will also have an area for you to drop off any school supplies.
Please have each individual child’s supplies in a plastic bag (grocery bag is just fine) with their
name (first and last) on the bag.
Mrs. Shelton’s Kindergarten area will be near the playground and Mrs. Spencer’s area will be
near the Hope School Road end with all others in between. There will be signs to help you out
as well. Pam Hewitt, our extraordinary School Office Coordinator, will be stationed in front of
the school under the portico to collect any forms you may need to turn in.
Partners for Education (PIE), our fantastic parent/Hope staff group, will also be present to share
information about meetings and how they support our Wildcat crew.
We HOPE to see you at HOPE School for our “Drop by and Drop off” meet the teacher event.
Take care and be safe!
Sherri Hatley, Principal and the HOPE School staff
