School Staff Neighborhood Caravan this Friday 4/17 at 2:00pm!!!

From Dr. Sork/Foxy Tales:

Get your hand ready for waving! Dorothy Fox Staff will be following a planned route through the Dorothy Fox Neighborhood on Friday from 2:00 - 2:45pm to come and see you! Below is a photo of our planned route. We will send out a final copy of our map on Friday to confirm if any changes had to be made.

REMINDERS: Be Safe. Stay Apart. Follow Social Distancing Guidelines.

  • If your house in on the route, stay with your family and enjoy on your property.

  • If your house is away from the route and you want to come to a street so you can see the cars and wave, please stay away from others and stay only with your family.

  • Families could drive cars and park them alongside the route to join the fun, but stay safe, stay in your car, and apart from other people.

  • Always stay out of the road and do not approach any cars.

The timing could be a little off. We will try to start on time, but we appreciate your patience!

Cars will be grouped and lined up so you can find your people that you know.

Staff will go in the following order:

Office --> Kindergarten --> First Grade --> Second Grade --> Third Grade --> Fourth Grade --> Fifth Grade --> Specialists --> Classified Staff.

PTA QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

We have been receiving a lot of questions and we want to provide some information even if we do not have a complete answer yet. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Yearbooks - How will I receive my yearbook?

We are working on this and will let you know as we get closer to June and hear what restrictions for groups and stay at home orders are in place. You will receive your yearbook one way or another though. We are excited to look back on all the good times!

  • PTA Events – Are all events canceled?

Yes. Since the school building and in person school has been canceled for the year, all PTA events have also been canceled. As we move into May and June, we will reassess if we can possibly make up any events in some capacity at a later date. This is a tough situation and we are all saddened by the cancellations of many loved school traditions and events. We are so glad that everyone is staying home and healthy though.

  • Supporting Teachers – Is the PTA helping?

The PTA has virtually met with Dr. Sork and are here to support our teachers! All requests will go through Dr. Sork and if there is a need we will work with Dr. Sork.

  • Clay Art Relief Tiles (Self Portraits) – Will I be able to get my student(s) tile?

Yes, the school will be working on a plan for this as restrictions allow. They turned out amazing and we are excited for students to bring them home to share with you when it is safe and possible.

  • Spring Pictures, Class Pictures, and Spirit Gear – How will I get these?

Again, we are working on a plan and will let you know as soon as we can! Thank you!
