Hello Fry Families-
Today is our first Monday of school! Students will be dismissed from virtual learning at 1:00. Teachers will have Professional Development and Team Planning Meetings after dismissal.
Student Materials Pick-up starts TODAY!
We are ready for our next distribution of student materials. We begin today at 1:30. Parents or their designee are asked to come to school at any of the following times to pick up learning materials. Each student will have a large envelope (or more) to collect. Please bring your child’s drawstring bag from the last round to return for future use.
Monday, September 21st between 1:30-4:30 PM
Tuesday, September 22nd between 8:00-9:00 AM or 12:00-1:00 PM
Wednesday, September 23rd anytime 8:00 AM-5:00 PM
We will follow the same procedures we used in August. Parents will need to drive to the school to maintain social distancing. Walk-ups will not be allowed.
In the interest of safety for you and for our staff, we ask that you follow these procedures:
• Create a sign (8 ½ x 11 paper size) with your student(s) last name, first name and grade in BOLD/ BIG print. Use a marker, not pencil/pen. Teacher name is not needed.
Please see the examples below:
Freddy – Kindergarten
Franklin – 3rd
Freida - 5th
James – 1st
• Place the sign on the dashboard or front window, visible to staff.
• Enter the carline on Tall Grass Drive heading North toward Grassmere. Turn right only on Grassmere, moving toward the parking lot. Pick-up will take place in the parking lot loop (not the loop in front of the school).
• Once your car reaches the designated spot (a cone with a #, assigned by staff), please open the trunk, side door or window. DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR VEHICLE. A staff member will place your child’s items in your car. Please drop the drawstring bag(s) into the bin to return.
Classroom Teachers email parents through the ParentVue system. These messages will come to parents’ inboxes as a “Message from Synergy”. Please be sure to open these emails when you receive such a notice. If you are not seeing Synergy messages, please check your spam folder. The enrolling parent sets permissions for receiving emails in ParentVue, not the school, so your ParentVue communication settings are also another place to check.
Physical Education Note for K-2 students
For K-2 PE classes, starting Tuesday September 22nd through Monday October 5th, students will be doing a Ball Activity Lesson for live and independent classes, along with a fitness or dance activity. Please make sure students have a ball to use that is hand-sized, squishy or soft, that can bounce. If you don't have this, then a rolled-up sock will work. Make sure it's home safe!
Team IPEF/McDonald’s Fundraiser
The staff wishes we could host our annual “McTeacher Night” again this year. It is one of our favorites! Instead, on Tuesday, September 29th we will host a McDonald's Fry TEAM IPEF Fundraising Day. A portion of the Fry School purchases along with all pie sales will support the Fry Staff and Community members who are running for TEAM IPEF in the upcoming Naperville 5K or half-marathon. We are so grateful to these runners and their support of the Indian Prairie Education Foundation (IPEF)! Mark your calendar!
