Apison School Updates

 

Good Afternoon Apison Families,

This is Principal Stewart.  The health and safety of the staff and students at Apison Elementary School is our top priority, and we aim to be totally transparent with our school family.  I wanted to notify you that someone associated with our school has tested positive for COVID-19.  Due to privacy laws, we cannot share the person's name or role in the school building.

We have completed contact tracing and the relevant areas of the building will be cleaned prior to opening for instruction tomorrow.

Thank you for your continued support through this season as we continue to ensure safety protocols.  We highly encourage the wearing of masks while in the building as this is a mitigation strategy.  In addition, we will continue to offer masks to those that have not opted out as well as encourage the use of hand sanitizer and frequent handwashing.  We will continue to limit non-essential visitors and vendors to the building.  Minimizing exposure is our goal.

Once again, we thank you for your continued support.

Have a great evening!

Good Evening Apison Parents,

On Monday, September 20th, Apison will be recognized by Hamilton County Schools as a Reward School.  In honor of this distinguished recognition, we would like for all students to wear red, white, and blue again on Monday.  We're so proud of the work our faculty, staff, and students did on TNReady state assessment for school year 20-21 despite the challenges experienced by the pandemic.  The students outperformed the district and the state.  We want to continue to support all of our students and the efforts of our faculty and staff to ensure that we keep this momentum going for school year 21-22.  In addition, we celebrate you for believing in the work we do for your children.

Have a good evening and a restful weekend.

Dear Apison Parents and Guardians:

We want to take this opportunity to update you on a few changes as well as clarifications of school processes.  Our first update is that all open house sessions will be virtual again this year. A note went home today with your student of the dates, grade levels, and ZOOM information.  All open houses will begin at 5:00 p.m.  Classroom teachers will plan to remind you when your student's grade level open house will occur closer to the date.  Our first open house is Thursday, August 26th for Kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th grades.  We hope that you'll plan to attend.

Secondly, as we adjust our dismissal for the this school year, please be patient.  We are making adjustments for the increased volume of car riders so that the car rider line does not interfere with traffic on Bentwood Cove Drive and East Brainerd Road. Parents of car riders, please remember to avoid blocking the bus lane as this causes a delay in loading and dismissing buses.  Relating to buses, morning pickup and afternoon drop off times are not exact.  Please allow a 10-15 minutes window for bus arrivals and drop offs.  

Finally, for those students who would like to eat breakfast in the mornings, breakfast ends at 8:40 a.m. to ensure that students are in their seats by 8:45 a.m.  If you are running behind, please have a breakfast snack available for your child to hold them until lunch is served.  This will avoid them being counted tardy as school begins at 8:45 a.m.  

As always, we appreciate your dedication and support for Apison Elementary School.

Have a good evening.

COVID -19 Updates

Masks

The use of a face covering is optional for all students and staff.

▪ At this time, Hamilton County Schools recommends that all individuals 2 years and older wear a face covering if they are not vaccinated.

▪ The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly advocates that all policy considerations for school plans should start with the goal of keeping students safe and physically present in school.

▪ Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is as follows: – “When teachers, staff, and students who are not fully vaccinated consistently and correctly wear a mask, they protect others as well as themselves. Consistent and correct mask use by people who are not fully vaccinated is especially important indoors and in crowded settings, when physical distancing cannot be maintained.”

▪ All individuals, vaccinated or unvaccinated, may wear a face covering if they want to

Other Safety Mitigations

We will continue to physically distance, maintaining at least 3ft apart when possible and practicing good hygiene washing hands before and after lunch, having hand sanitizer available for frequent use. Hard surfaces and high-touch areas will be cleaned and disinfected at the end of each day.

We are excited about beginning our new school year and look forward to seeing you soon!

Download the PowerSchool App

This year many of our students are attending school through remote learning, so it is essential that our families know how to access and use the PowerSchool Parent Portal. This platform houses all of the information families need to track their child's progress in school including grades, attendance, and teacher communications. The PowerSchool Parent Portal is especially helpful for HCS at Home parents because they can monitor if their child is attending virtual classes.

PowerSchool can be accessed through a computer or via mobile app. We strongly encourage families to download the PowerSchool app on their phones for quick and easy access to their child's school information. The app is available for download on Apple and Google Play.

For more information about how to sign into PowerSchool Parent Portal, visit our website.

 

2020-2021 APISON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL UPDATE

Dear Bentwood Cove Parents, Due to the construction of East Hamilton Middle School (East Brainerd Elementary School), a relief lane was created to ease the traffic on Bentwood Cove Drive. Parents are no longer allowed to park along Bentwood Cove Drive to wait for their student(s) to cross the crosswalk. NO PARKING signs will be posted along the drive. As a result, all Bentwood Cove students will become car riders. We will no longer walk the students to the crosswalk. Lane #1 in the front of the building is designated for Bentwood Cove parents allowing you to turn right to return to your neighborhood. Others who may choose to join Bentwood Cove parents in lane #1 are choosing to turn right to either go to your neighborhood or to East Hamilton Middle School/East Brainerd Elementary School.

On Friday, August 7th during registration, you will have an opportunity to pick up your new red car tag. Beginning on Wednesday, August 12th , all previous Bentwood Cove walkers will walk the car rider line and will meet you in lane #1.

We realize this is new to all of you but please understand that changes with new construction create challenges. This is a prime example and we are adjusting our traffic flow/pattern to accommodate the new build. We thank you, in advance, for your understanding and grace as we all become accustomed to this new change.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Callie Stewart
Principal
