From the Principal

Dear Schuchard Parents and Community:

Here is some important information for our school community.

School Supplies
Our goal this year is to not have students share school supplies. Please contact your teacher to learn what the suggested supplies are for your child's classroom. As is always the case, supplies are welcomed but not required. In addition to classroom supplies and as part of our efforts to keep all students and staff safe, we will be accepting donations in the oce of nonlatex gloves, disposable masks and disinfectant wipes. Thank you in advance for any and all support.

Face Coverings
A reminder that all students must wear masks when inside the building. We have disposable masks for students to use, but bringing a mask from home is acceptable and appreciated.

IPads and Laptops
All students must bring their iPads or Laptops to and from school every day. If your device is in need of tech support, please e-mail your teacher so that we are aware and can attempt to x the problem. Devices should be transported in a backpack. If you do not have a backpack for your child, let us know and we can provide one.

Schuchard Elementary School will work with our community to provide opportunities for students to become actively engaged life-long learners who have the ability to positively impact our society.
