First Days of School UPDATE

**Special Instructions for Kindergarten Families at the bottom of the page**

UPDATED 8/6/20:

As you are aware, Rutherford County Schools has made the decision to delay re-opening schools until Thur., 8/13/20.  The first school day for Gr. 1-5 at Barfield on Thur. will be abbreviated, 7:30-10:45 and  Fri., 8/14/20 will be 7:30-10:45. Mon., 8/17/20 will be our FIRST FULL DAY of school, 7:30-2:30.  
While the "official re-opening" may not be until Thur., we just can't wait to meet our kids and their parents, so continue reading for what we have planned for you!

The BIG REVEAL will be on Friday for Gr. 1-5!
Aug. 7, 2:30 p.m.
  Homeroom rolls will be posted on the front windows of the school building.  You are welcomed to come with your child anytime throughout the weekend to find out this important information and to take a tour of the campus to find the BACK DOOR of the teacher's classroom.  Signs will point the way.  

While this is NOT a school day, on Mon., 8/10/20 from 7:30-8:30 a.m. for grades 1-5 ONLY, you will be able to walk your child to the classroom OUTSIDE on the sidewalk to the BACK DOOR of the teacher's classroom for a "MEET THE TEACHER " opportunity.  We prefer in-person learners to come with their parents at the morning time; however, feel free to come during the afternoon time, if that works better for you.  Distance Learners may also come if you do not need a device.

You will meet your child's teacher and provide information about how your child will be going home each day during the phase-in days of Thur. & Fri.  If your child will be going home by car, do not leave without the appropriate car rider tag: GREEN for K-2 students, dismissing from Schoolside St. and PURPLE  for students in gr. 3-5 and younger siblings, dismissing from the front of the gym.  Your child's teacher will be able to provide these to you.

From 1:00-3:00, on Mon., 8/10/20, we will offer another "Meet the Teacher" opportunity for our Distance Learners and other families that prefer this time.  Devices for Distance Learners ONLY will be available for checkout at the FRONT OF THE BUILDING also between 1:00-3:00 on Mon.

Grades 1-5, 1st full day, 7:30-2:30.  Students will enter through the main doors of the building, NOT from teachers' back doors.

If you need to "Meet the Teacher" virtually, you can email the teacher directly for an appointment time to do that.

We are so excited about "seeing" all of our students whether in-person or virtually!

Important Kindergarten Information:

Kindergarten screenings will continue as scheduled at Barfield.

On Thur., Aug. 13, classroom rosters will be posted on the windows at the front of our school building by 2:30.
