After a very long weekend, with a dedicated crews of installers and teachers working day and night, Peck is presentable enough to open tomorrow and welcome your students to a new school year in their nearly-new school building. Most areas look spectacular!
However, there is still a great deal of work that needs to be done. Some teachers did not get their shelves and countertops until Labor Day afternoon. Even teachers who did have some shelves have readied their classrooms, but not organized them the way they want for centers, reading, and small group work. The contractors also have a punch list of items which need to be completed as well.
Therefore, Peck will have three early dismissal days this week. Tuesday, September 2nd will be a full day. On Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, September 3rd– 5th, school will be dismissing at 1:00 p.m.
The 21st Century before- and after-school program will be in session all week until 6:00 pm. Peck families with kindergarteners will receive an additional letter through Principal Kai Byrd with the kindergarten options.
I appreciate your understanding and support for the entire Peck staff as we accomplish this final stage.
