Martha Ryan-Toye will be attending our next PTA Meeting to explain how the test works and answer any questions you may have regarding the saliva testing program. While this screening is not mandatory, we do believe that high levels of participation increase our overall sense of safety in the schools. We currently have approximately 50-65% of our students participating (with some variability between schools). If you have not already done so, please consider submitting a consent form and participating in this screening process.

We have attached the waiver for you to send to the school, should you want to be a part of this program. A zoom link to the meeting will be posted before Tuesday, January 19th, 2021.

School Lunch Program – EXTENDED

Posted by admin on January 11, 2021 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Any student at Blythe Park may participate. We encourage you to take advantage of this program while it is offered through June.

As of September 1, 2020, the USDA announced all children under 19 years of age are eligible for free meals. Good News!
The USDA announced that it will extend serving free meals to all children through June 30th, 2021.

Lunch will be available for pickup at dismissal at every school. In addition, district-wide lunch pick-up is at Hauser Junior High, outside door number 5 between 10:00 am and 2:30 pm. (walk-up site only, no cars). We encourage families to sign up for lunch. The district developed a sign-up sheet with days listed two weeks in advance. Signing up for lunch will help the logistics of the program.

Teacher and Staff Holiday Collection- Deadline for donations is Wednesday, December 16

Posted by admin on December 9, 2020 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

As the holidays approach, we would like to thank our dedicated teachers and staff members with a gift. To ensure that everyone at Blythe feels appreciated, we are using the same approach as we did last year. Several parents (and classroom teachers) have suggested we spread the wealth (so to speak) and divide donations among all teachers and staff who work to make Blythe Park an extraordinary community. Moreover we also decided that instead reaching out to you to repeatedly ask for donations for holiday gifts and end-of-year gifts and teacher appreciation, we will ask for donations once and divide them among everyone for each occasion. 

Of course, no one is required to give, but we encourage those who do to keep this new approach in mind as you plan your giving. Please do what you can if you can. We appreciate any and all contributions. It would be great if you could make your gift through Cheddar up by Wednesday, December 16th, but we welcome cash and checks as well if you prefer.

Pay with Cheddar Up

GREAT NEWS!! We are extending the virtual book sale to December 24th!
