Dear Parents and Guardians,

On June 1st, 2nd and 3rd we will be prepared to distribute your child's belongings back to you for the 19-20 school year.  Your teachers have packed all the students' belongings from their desk and lockers for each of you. On these three days we will maintain very strict guidelines for Safety and Security during our “Car line” pickup. 

Please see the schedule and guidelines below:

June 1st
          Kindergarten: 9-11 A.M.
          Grade 1: 12-2 P.M.
June 2nd
          Grade 2: 9-11 A.M.
          Grade 3: 12-2 P.M.
June 3rd
          Grade 4: 9-11 A.M.
          Grade 5: 12-2 P.M.

*During your schedule times you will form a “car line” single file to the front doors.  Please do not get out of your car.  You will be met by Officer Eddie (SRO) or a staff member.  You will state your child’s name and teacher.  You should then pop your trunk open and wait for your items to be placed inside.  Please follow the staff direction as we move up the vehicles on line as others are complete.  Once you are complete please exit the line safety and proceed off campus.  You will need to have a mask on at all times.  Staff will have masks and gloves for protection and will sanitize gloves in between deliveries.

*If you have multiple children we will accommodate you at any of the times.

*If you can not make it you may have a friend or family member pick up for you as long as you have notified your teachers via email.  Teachers will forward those permissions to Ms. Pauspt.

*Medication pick up will be delivered during the same dates, times and protocols by Nurse Robyn.  Medication that can’t be
picked up by a parent also requires an email to Nurse Robyn giving permission to distribute your child’s medication to another adult.

Times and dates must be adhered to as your items will not be available in the lobby during other grade level times.

Safety, Health and Wellness,

Van Cort Administration

Dear Parent/Guardians of our Incoming Kindergarten Class 2020-2021:

We were scheduled to meet on May 11th and have an overview of the school and expectations for Kindergarten 2020-2021.

As you are aware the schools are closed and I hope this email finds your families well and safe.

Although we are not physically in school, there are many ways we are continuing to keep our students engaged from UPK - grade 12 throughout the district.

Here at Van Cortlandtville Elementary School I want you to know our teachers are working diligently to continue the learning for all of our students. 

Please know there are many wonderful things to share with you about our school and year ahead.  This link is an overview  of what is to come in the Kindergarten year.  

Please stay well, be safe and enjoy your family.
