US News Utah’s Top Ranked Elementary School Badge

Parent Newsletter 9-4-20

Hello Tiger Nation,



When I told teachers that I was going to send a principal newsletter and asked what items they wanted me to communicate home, ALL teachers responded with the same response.    We are so grateful for the trust each of you gave us sending your students back in person or online.    It has been rejuvenating having students back in the building or communicating virtually with them.


A few items to bring to your attention:


  1. Pick-up and drop-off: A gentle reminder that all students should be picked up and dropped off using the north parking lot.  Please DO NOT use the bus lane for the safety of your student.   Also, when picking up or dropping off please utilize the crosswalks.  Walking between cars can be unsafe and we want to instill good, safe habits for our students.
  2. Virtual Back To School Night: A big bummer we all experienced was not having the opportunity to participate in our Back To School Night.  Our teachers wanted to “virtually meet” each of you and introduce themselves.  On the Bella Vista website you can find your student’s teacher and a short video introducing themselves.
  3. COVID reminders:
    1. Please keep your student home if they feel sick.
    2. Continue sending your student with a mask each day and wash masks often to keep them clean.



I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend and soaks up every last drop of summer before it is gone. Remember there is no school on Monday, September 7th.
