Weekly Message 4/4/21

Good afternoon Ephesus families,

I am calling early this afternoon with several updates and/or reminders as we prepare for PLAN A school reopening starting on tomorrow:

Plan A starts tomorrow morning meaning in-person students now attend school 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday). Don’t forget that in-person students can enter the building starting at 7:50am. The tardy bell rings at 8:20am each day. Families, please remember to complete your ABC App Daily Pass each morning so students only need their temperature checked once they get to school. Also, in-person families should have their student(s) dismissal card(s) on their dashboard upon arriving at the afternoon dismissal line starting tomorrow.

Did you know that April 5-9, 2021 is Assistant Principals’ Appreciation Week. Families, this week, let’s show Ms. Boyer how much we appreciate her!

This Wednesday, April 7, 2021 is a required teacher workday.  There will be no school for students on Wednesday.

Our monthly “Distribution Day” will look a little differently this Friday, April 9th. Remote learning materials will be prepared and available for in-person pick-up only at the Atrium entrance. Pick-up bags will be labeled with student names in the atrium on Friday for a quick pick-up (Pick-up Window: 8:30am-1:30pm).

Report Cards and/or Progress Notes also come home on Friday, April 9th.


My apologies Ephesus families,

I misspoke in my earlier voice message today. In-person students can enter the school building starting at 7:50am each day. The tardy bell rings at 8:20am. Sorry for any confusion my earlier voice message may have caused.

In-person students can enter the school building starting at 7:50am each day.

Have a great rest of your Sunday!


Good afternoon Ephesus families,

PTA is surveying parents to determine interest in 2020-2021 school pictures and/or yearbook. While this year is anything but ordinary, it is also a historical year to document in our lives. If there is a strong response, we will coordinate in-person students on a school day and a time slot document/sign-up genius for remote students. PLEASE RESPOND BY TUESDAY, APRIL 6, 2021.

Update from 4/5/21

Good morning Ephesus families,

All students are currently in class and lunch is currently being prepared. This morning's arrival went great. Thanks so much to you all!

Pre-K Parents: The Pre-K drop off time is 7:50am-8:20am. The same as K-5th grade students. Pre-K student(s) drop off for walkers AND car riders will be at a table between Cabin 1 and Cabin 2.  If you are driving, you will need to park in the Ephesus Park tennis court parking lot located to the right of Kiss N Go lane and walk your child to the table for check in.  Your child will be met at the table by a Pre-K staff member to check in your child, your child’s temperature will be taken and you will show your child’s green check from the ABC App or be asked 4 attestation questions: These are the questions you will be asked.  Your child will then be escorted to their Cabin.  Parents are not allowed up the ramp to the cabins.

Pre-K - 5th Grade Dismissal: Please expect delays today. All Kiss-n-go families need their child(ren)'s dismissal card(s) on the dash of their vehicle as they enter the campus. It would be best if all Kiss-n-go families did not try to pick up their child(ren) at 2:05pm. Please plan to come at 2:05, 2:12 or 2:20 today. We expect Kiss-n-go to run until at least 2:25pm today. Families picking up Walkers/Bikers should also have their Dismissal Pick-Up cards visible. If your child does not have a Dismissal Card yet, please have the ABC App visible on your phone.


Good afternoon Ephesus families,

Here is some additional Pre-K information: 

If you are dropping off to Pre-K late or picking up early, please do not go to the front office.  

Instead, call your student's classroom: 

Cabin 1: 919-929-8715 x36241

Cabin 2; 919-929-8715 x66111

And a PreK classroom staff member will come to your car for a temperature check, attestation and/or have you sign the student in/out form. Here are the attestation questions that will be asked if you do not have the ABC App: Health Screening Questions

Also, please don’t forget that the Ephesus PTA Sponsored School Pics/Yearbook Survey is due by tomorrow. Here is the Spanish survey form: Spanish - Ephesus PTA Sponsored School Pics/Yearbook Survey


Thank you for your patience Ephesus families,

Here is the Japanese - Ephesus PTA Sponsored School Pics/Yearbook. This is the last survey document we needed to provide our families.

This is a last reminder that the Ephesus PTA Sponsored School Pics/Yearbook Survey deadline is tomorrow, April 6th at 6pm. Don't delay in completing a survey.

Have a great day!
