Dear Springdale Families,
I hope you will all join us as we welcome you to our annual Open House! This is a very important night for your children as you will learn so much about what we are learning in school this year. We have high expectations for our students and know you do too. When we come together at Open House we strengthen our home-school relationship and support success for our children.
Before you come to school tonight, I want to inform you of some important projects that are going on in the school. Springdale is very fortunate this year to receive much needed improvements to the facility. Some current projects include updating and repairing heating and air conditioning systems, installation of sprinklers and new ceiling tiles, and repairing and updating bathrooms. I want to assure you that these improvements are safe for adults and students and are not disruptive to the learning environment. However, as a result of the construction, we are having a problem with field mice in the building. Therefore, in addition to planned construction, additional work is being done with a pest control company to eliminate the field mice. This will require cleaning storage spaces and limiting food in school to designated areas. We are in the beginning stages of learning what we have to do and are planning closely with The Board of Education Facilities Department and The Superintendent’s Office. More information will be forthcoming as we continue to work through these school improvements.
I will be available at Open House tonight for questions and concerns and as always, I am available to speak with you via phone, email or here at school. Thank you for your ongoing support of Springdale and I look forward to seeing you all tonight.
Gloria Manna, Principal
