Welcome back to a new year at Millicoma! I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and that the summer has provided you some much needed time together. As we enter this challenging new school year our commitment remains in supporting you and your student(s).
We have many new faces joining our staff this year, including Kyle Aurdahl, our new Assistant Principal. Kyle was raised in Coos Bay and is excited to return to the area with his family. Kyle will work half-time at Millicoma and half-time next door at Eastside.
Our staff is hard at work preparing for a return to full day classes and providing a daily experience for students that is more normal than we saw last year. Your child’s teacher(s) will be in contact soon regarding class assignment and to schedule a parent conference during our Coos Bay Schools K-6 Kick-Off Week. This meeting will be an important opportunity for you and your student(s) to meet with their teacher to discuss updated COVID practices, academic curriculum, social-emotional needs, and to verify meal and transportation plans. This meeting will also provide our teachers with time to assess academic baselines for students. We will be practicing social distancing during these conferences, and all COVID protocols will be in place to ensure safety. All conference attendees over the age of five will be required to wear a mask upon entering the building.
Important dates as we begin our school year include:
- Kick-off conference week 9/7/21-9/10/21
- First day of in person school 9/13/21
