  • Welcome Back - August 9, 2021

    August 9, 2021

    Hello Team Mansfield Families, 

    Welcome back! Mr. Shepley, Mrs. Petralia, Ms. Faulkner, and Mr. Van Duyn are excited to see you all. We hope that you are finding time to relax, enjoy summer, and get into your Summer Reading book! Information about the Summer Reading Program was sent in an earlier email, but if you have any questions please reach out to Ms. Faulkner.

    To ensure that we begin our year on a positive note, we would like to make all students and families aware that hand-held devices, such as cell phones, will not be permitted on our team. If a student chooses to bring any of these items to school, we ask that these remain in students’ backpacks until the end of the day. Until further notice, there will not be lockers available to start the school year, but personal storage will be provided based on homeroom assignment and students will travel to cores with their backpacks. Additionally, all students will be able to receive free breakfasts and lunches throughout the year.

    The annual ice cream social is on August 23rd at 5 pm. Homeroom and core class lists will be provided on the first day of school on August 25th. Below is a list of supplies we would like students to have to start the year, and we will provide each student with an EMS planner. If you are unable to obtain any of the supplies listed, please let us know and we will work with you.
