Dear Fruitvale families,


I am so excited to welcome you back to school! We are ready to have students filling our hallways, classrooms, playgrounds and hearts, once again. There has been a lot of mobility and we will have a many new students and a few new staff members to introduce to our school community. You will notice that Ms. LauraElena Moreno has joined our administrative team. She comes to us with lots of experience having served in New York, Greeley, Chipeta and Rim Rock.  In our upcoming newsletters, we will introduce other new members of our Fruitvale staff. You will also have an opportunity to meet all of our staff at Back to School Night on Thursday, August 5th from 4:00-6:00. Please drop in to meet your child’s teacher and find their classrooms. The first day of school for 1st-5th graders is August 9th and kindergarteners start on August 11th .

We look forward to an amazing year, with lots of academic and personal growth for our students. Please check our website for the latest news. We also use Class Dojo to share classroom and building information, so when you get the link from your child’s teacher, please sign-up.

Building wide protocols for arrival, dismissal, and COVID-19 management can be found on the back of this letter. There is also a back to school video posted on our webpage. Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns.
