Hello Doudna Families!

We have completed two weeks of school!  This coming week we will have a "full week"!  Face to Face learners will be present at school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - with Wednesday an at home independent learning & check in day!  Remote learners will attend daily, Monday thru Friday.

Our face to face learners will continue the systems for bus and vehicle drop off and pick up at school.  The Mask Up 4 Pick Up will continue as we practiced this past week with great success!!  Wahoo!  Thank you for being patient as we tried out a few ways with adjustments to get to this one!

Mask Baths- please send your child with a clean mask daily, some students may need a few in the course of the day.  If you need masks, please contact your child's teacher, Mrs. Egge (our School Counselor) or myself.  We have been gifted masks from the community to help support our families.

Enjoy the fall weekend ahead!!

Mrs. Amy Hardy

Doudna Elementary has had very busy families!!  Your support and understanding is so appreciated as we have teamed in student placement changes and in working through these new procedures!!

Our Face to Face learning families should win awards for their patience and following the systems for dropping off & picking up students on Tuesday!!  Top Notch!!  

The students were champions with their ability to adapt and follow safety protocols, follow our initial back to school roll out with electronic devices and adjust on how to reconnect with peers after months of not being together!

The school day was a success for students and staff!  Our exception was the afternoon pick up.  This time of day and the steps will take will continue to be adjusted as we explore options to find the best way to ensure everyone's safety~ in regards to driving, people crossing and COVID, while trying to do it in a timely manner.  We have made some internal changes.  Families, in an effort to help with the flow of traffic it is suggested you travel to and from Doudna Elementary using Cty. Hwy. RC (taking Hwy. 80 to RC), this will decrease traffic back up.  We will continue to have the students in order from Kindergarten -5th grade.  Please stay in your vehicle as you drive thru the Parent Pick Up Lane.

Today was our first Wednesday Home Learning Day.  Teachers were connecting with students via video chat and/or phone calls.  Teachers are asked to take attendance based on these connections with students.  It is recognized that for some students this was not possible; replacement devices needed, additional classroom coaching on how to log-in and family schedules permitted this connection to happen today.  Teachers will be sharing with families the times of group video chats.  Please contact your child's teacher if special arrangements need to be set to allow them to connect with your child.

Remember for school days to send with your child:

  • Mask
  • Water Bottle
  • Digital Device (charged)
  • School Supplies

REMOTE learning families picked up their devices today.  Thank you for keeping with the afternoon pick up schedule!   Please log on to your BUZZ account so you are ready to roll on Thursday morning.  If you experience any problems contact Shari Johnson at 647-6106, ext. 1008.  You should have received this log in information in an email last week, along with a hard copy when you picked up your device today.
