• Potomack School Community: 

    Opening week is around the corner. We are looking forward to kicking off the 21-22 school year with you! The two pressing questions right now are "How will students know who their teachers are?" and "When is orientation?" We will post rosters on the front windows Tuesday, August 17th sorted by grade and listed by student ID number. The name of the teacher will also be accessible to the parents via Schoology on the 17th

    Orientation will be held in person on August 18, 2021, at Potomack Intermediate School for all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. To maintain social distancing protocols, we are asking that only one parent per Potomack student attend. Parents are encouraged to be prepared to use their cellular device for self-guided tours (i.e. unified arts, counselors, & nurse). We will have QR codes to scan throughout the building for to learn about our staff and the programs we offer. Those QR codes will direct parents to prerecorded videos for those programs. Classroom teachers will have an orientation presentation prepared to run on a loop in the background to maximize your face-to-face time when guests visit in person.

    To help with crowd control in the building, we have separated the times for orientation by child's last name. Times for Orientation are as follows, categorized by last name:

    A-F: 1 p.m. -- 1:45 p.m.

    G-M: 2 p.m. -- 2:45 p.m.

    N-S: 3 p.m. -- 3:45 p.m.

    T-Z: 4 p.m. -- 4:45 p.m.

    We recognize that exceptions need to be allowed for some families. The goal for orientation is for the students and parents to meet their teachers and explore the school campus. We look forward to and welcome each person who attends in person. 

    Schools will follow face covering protocols as provided by the Berkeley-Morgan County Board of Health (BMCBH) released on Friday, August 13, which will go into effect on Monday, August 16. This information will be posted to the district website

    We also understand that some families may not be able to attend orientation. Teachers will need make contact by phone between August 18-22 for those on their roster who did not attend.  

    We are looking forward to gathering as one Eagle family on Wednesday, August 18th.

     

    Best, 

    Dr. Alfonso
