Back-to-School Year Info

Dear Families,
Happy continued summer! I hope these hot days of summer are providing you and family time to decompress and relax. With three weeks left before school starts, we want to provide all of the information you need to prepare. Supply lists and details of back-to-school events are provided in this newsletter.
OCPS is hard at work finalizing all of the safety protocols that will be in place in schools as of August 2nd. It has already been decided that face masks will be optional for all students and adults in schools beginning 8/2. As we make this transition, please help your child understand this option and discuss the importance of respecting one another as they observe different choices among their peers. For children and adults alike, it will be critical that acceptance and understanding are modeled as all come back together under our Blankner roof.
We are so excited to see you very soon! It’s true - we shine brighter together, and we are thankful to Be Blankner with you! Please help share all communications from school, as our district database “flip” will occur late this summer and newly registered families may not receive school calls or emails until August. We appreciate your help with this!
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, as well, at (407) 245-1720.
Be Kind, Shine Bright, Be Blankner,
Junella Kreil
Principal, Blankner K-8
