Dear Questa Families,


Welcome back to the 2019-20 school year!  I am looking forward to another great year.  


Our Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 13th, was well attended.  Thank you to all of our families for coming out to take part in this important informational night. Don’t forget to turn in your QSF donation envelope.  We are hoping to get $50 per student to help fund wonderful enrichment opportunities for the students this year. With your help, our students will be able to attend meaningful and enriching field trips and experiences throughout the school year.  This money will help fund the buses for the field trips. We will have our annual Scaredy Cat Scatter in October that will generate funds specific to your child’s classroom that will also aid in the cost of field trips (entrance fees) and classroom activities.  


Please join me in welcoming Ms. Azam, our new 6-8 SDC Teacher, to Questa this year. 


On Wednesday, August 16th, we implemented our regular drop off and pick-up procedures.  Mrs. Duran sent out communication yesterday that details these procedures. Please reference her email for more information.  


We now have the back gate open on West Esplanade, and we have closed the gate leading into the park.  This allows for easy access for children crossing the street in the crosswalk on West Esplanade. Please make sure your children are aware of the change.  


Please note, the playgrounds are closed and not available for students to play at the 2:10 dismissal, and all gates will be closed promptly at 2:20.  We thank all parents in advance for helping to ensure a safe and secure campus for our 4th-8th graders still in school until 2:55 p.m.     


Have a great weekend.


Sincerely,


Heather Sharp
