What’s News at ADAT This Week: 9.29.17

September 25, 2017

Leadership Blog

Dear Parents,

As we enter into one of the holiest days on the Jewish calendar, I am particularly reflective of the past year. I am so grateful for all of you, all that I have learned, and all that I know we will continue to learn from each other in the year to come. One way that I can continue to learn more from you and ensure alignment with our community’s values is to gain your feedback on a variety of topics surrounding our school. To that end, I would appreciate you filling out a very brief survey – seeking your valuable input on Shabbat Under the Stars, as well as two ongoing conversations in the Day School – 6th Grade Israel trip and school uniforms. It will take just a couple minutes to complete, but will play an integral role in our planning for the future.

Wishing you and your families a meaningful Yom Kippur and g’mar chatimah tovah.

News and Updates

Important Parking Lot Protocol

During morning drop off please pull all the way to the front of the line – do not stop in the middle of the line. Have your children exit quickly from your car on the school side ONLY. Rivka Kaspi is there in the mornings to facilitate a swift drop off and maintain everyone’s safety. Try to have your car unloaded in a timely fashion so we do not create a large back up of cars.  Also, whenever you exit the parking please turn RIGHT ONLY.

****Children may not be dropped off before 7:30 a.m. as there is NO SUPERVISION UNTIL 7:30 a.m.****

Thank you in advance for following our parking lot protocol.
