Mattos Elementary School

August 20, 2021

Dear Mattos Community,

Thank you for a great first week of school. I appreciate everyone for working together to be safe and for supporting entering and exiting campus correctly. Please continue to have students on campus at 8:15 but not earlier as supervision starts at 8:15. Please work with your child to enter and exit at their designated grade level and classroom area. Pre-plan where you will meet to avoid crown congestion and please arrive on time for pick up. Drivers doing pick up must either park off campus and meet their child or remain in their car and pull all the way up to the end of the drive through loop to pick up your student or students. This allows the flow of traffic to be safe and timely. Thank you for adhering to these guidelines.

As you may or may not know, last year I was out due to a medical emergency and I have been on a waiting list for several months for another needed medical intervention. I was just called that I have been cleared to receive this care and must respond immediately.  It is estimated that I will be out at least 6 weeks.

Ms. Susan Lemke, an experienced educator, will be on site for me next week serving as an interim principal while our district sets up a long term substitute principal. Ms. Lemke is an outstanding educator who cares deeply about children and their success so you are in good hands. I met with her today and she is excited to work with all of you.

Please have a good weekend.
