Dear Zion Families,

Our school year is off to a great start! Our students are getting into their routines, making friends, learning, playing, and growing in Christ each day. It always amazes me just how much young minds can absorb. At a young age, children are naturally curious, they enjoy learning, and they are excited when they grasp a concept or learn a new skill. As families, you can greatly enhance their learning by helping them continue to be excited about every opportunity to teach them and to challenge their knowledge. I know that sometimes our little ones can try our patience but consider that they are exploring their world and putting the pieces together as they figure out how everything works. This is a gift for families as you help your students process the world around them and as you challenge them to use what they know. And don’t forget every day to help them give thanks to the Lord for all things and to remind them of God’s love for them in Jesus. Thank you for being a part of the Zion family! 

In Christ, Pastor Buetow



REMINDER: NO SCHOOL FRIDAY AND MONDAY
A reminder that there is NO SCHOOL THIS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 (Teacher In-Service) and next MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 (Labor Day).



MUMS AND SPIRIT WEAR DELIVERIES

Thank you for all your support of our school with our initial Mums and Spirit Wear fundraisers! 

MUMS will be available for pickup during school hours (9am-3pm) on Thursday and Friday, September 9 and 10. We will have extras for sale as well ($20 each). 

SPIRIT WEAR takes about two to three weeks to be processed and printed. Expect your orders to be in by mid September. 



PICKUP AND DROPOFF COURTESY

When DROPPING OFF: Please do NOT walk your children through the mulch on the West side of the walkway. In addition to keeping the planted area looking nice, we don’t want anyone to miss a step. Please walk your children around the low wall to the brick paving. 

When PICKING UP: Please do not wait for your child on the west side of the low wall. Please come to the striped area or the brick paving. This ensures no one is in the way of cars leaving the parking lot. 

Thank you for making the effort to be courteous and safe!



TEACHER WISH LISTS
Our teachers have put together Amazon wishlists for items for their classrooms. Feel free to shop for your child’s classroom! You can also share these links with family and friends if they’d like to help too!

SYMPTOMS AND SICK DAYS

Please continue to be alert for the following: Loss of taste/smell, Fever, Cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, chills, headache, nausea/vomiting, congestion/runny nose, sore throat, diarrhea, body/muscle aches, fatigue, or abdominal pain. 

If your child has ANY of those symptoms, please keep them home until they have been SYMPTOM FREE FOR 24 HOURS. That usually means an extra day away from school beyond the day they are feeling better. If in doubt, keep your child at home, notify the Office, and consult your doctor. Thank you for your extra vigilance and cooperation in keeping illness out of school! 

QUARANTINE GUIDELINES: Be aware that if a family member is exposed to Covid, your child will have to observe a 14 day quarantine from the time of the test results. 

IF YOU NEED TO GIVE YOUR CHILD MEDICATION FOR SYMPTOMS OR FEVER, THEY SHOULD NOT COME TO SCHOOL!
