Hello Castlemont Families,

I hope this message finds you and your family well. It is hard to believe that it has been almost a year since we closed our buildings and moved to distance learning. With the recent improvements in our county's COVID-19 conditions, you will be receiving regular information from both our school site and from the district office regarding our Phase 2 reopening plan.  We can anticipate conditions and information to be fluid, and because of this, it will be especially important for our families to check email regularly and to log on to our website often.  New articles are published on Thursdays. You can expect to find an important email arriving in your mailbox today.

Here is the link to the Castlemont Reopening Plan Handbook.  

Please take care,

The Castlemont Student Leadership Team is partnering with Notes for Support to express our deep gratitude to the healthcare workers for their service during this unprecedented time.  Notes for Support was created by a local high school student, Gina, who was inspired by the care and support she received during her medical hardship.  Using her expertise in coding, Gina built the Notes for Support website, so people all over the country can contribute by expressing their genuine appreciation to our frontline workers.  As of this moment, Gina has sent over 11,600 notes to 165 hospitals in 40 states.  Sending words of encouragement and comfort will go a long way, and as Gina stated, “There is something so powerful in receiving a physical note in a time of need--it shows that you’re not alone.”

To send thank you notes, please visit the Notes for Support website:  The SLT greatly appreciates your participation in this project and they will be keeping in touch with Gina to see how many notes Castlemont families can send out and where they were sent to! Thanks for your support!

As we continue with distance learning, we are planning school-wide extracurricular activities for our students to enjoy while they connect with each other.  We have already had two sessions of "Fitness with Ms. Anitra."  Twice a week, Ms. Anitra Jackson leads students in exercise and camaraderie-- the smiles are non-stop.

We are also scheduling virtual assemblies.  Among these will be the return of spirit assemblies featuring our dragons and the Castlemont Song.
