Seely Place School
Dear Seely Place Families,
With two of the most memorable school years we can imagine now behind us, planning for the 2022-2023 school year is now in full-swing. As we look ahead, we are excited at the possibility that we can return to even more normalcy at the start of the school year. Last year when we began, masks were required to be worn at all times and desks had to be separated. As of right now, we believe that we will begin school the way that it ended - with masks not required and desks or tables returning to pre-Covid times. We are planning for a school year that incorporates what we learned through Covid and moves us forward as a school community.
As faculty and staff return to the building throughout the summer, they bring their energy and excitement back to the halls of Seely Place! We still have the new artwork from the Seely Centennial hanging, and new designs being added to our bulletin boards. Our Seely Spirit is palatable!
We have some exciting changes to announce for the 2022-2023 school year: Ms. Olga Jubinville is moving from grade four to grade six. In addition, we would like to welcome our new team member whom we know will be strong additions to the Seely Place team: Mr. Greg Schneider will be joining our sixth grade team as a special education teacher.
The school year begins on Tuesday, September 6 at 8:30 am. Aim to drop off your child(ren) at Seely Place by 8:25 am so that they can begin their school day promptly at 8:30 am. Please do not drop your children at school before 8:00 am as we do not have any school staff available to supervise. If your child(ren) are ever feeling upset or anxious at drop-off, know that we have staff trained to help support your child’s transition into the school day. If you need extra assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know. The school day ends at 3:00 pm. Parents and guardians should either walk, park to pick up, or join the traffic line. Remember to have this sign printed and ready for dismissal. (If you are carpooling, please add all student names.) Remember that for drop-off and pick-up, if your children need assistance getting into or out of the car, you should park in a spot to assist them rather than wait in the pick-up line.
On behalf of the Seely Place team, I wish you and your children a wonderful school year. My door remains open, as always, for conversations with you - the families of Seely Place. We will have the most success if we communicate with each other, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns. It is my honor to serve as your Seely Place Principal.
Looking forward to our most memorable year yet!
