WEEK OF AUGUST 17-21, 2020

Good evening Explorer Parents,


This is Mrs. Graf with an update for the week. It's our first full week of school but don't worry, we will ease students into routine with our morning meetings, introductions to the day, the schedule, and getting to know you activities. Specialist teachers will be holding live sessions daily with students.


A few important things you should know this week:

Student Materials Pick Up:

Student materials pick up begins Tuesday the 18th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. for student Last Names A-L. On Wednesday, students with Last Names M-Z should come between 4:00-6:00 p.m. If you cannot come during that time, please come on Thursday or Friday from 8:00-4:00 p.m. If these times do not work for your schedule, please email Mrs. Graf at to schedule a time for pick up.


Technology: I know that many of you are waiting on a district device. Your names have been submitted to the district technology platform. Please check your email for a confirmation pick up date. These emails do not come from me or EGES, rather from the district technology office. The email will give you a date to pick up your device at one of the 5 locations across the district.

Our school PBIS code is M.A.P. S. Students should:

Make Smart Choices

Always Do Your Best

Practice Self Control and

Show Respect.


While we may not be in a school building surrounded by four walls, we should continue to follow our MAPS in our virtual environment. Teachers will be reviewing expectations with students for student to student interaction, as well as, appropriate engagement during live sessions.


Attendance: Attendance will be taken daily for students. During this two week orientation, we know that some students don't have a device yet. If this is the case for you, please notify the school on Monday so that teachers can share materials or supporting documents with students via email.


Office Hours: The Front Office is open daily from 8:00-4:00 p.m. Please call the Front Desk and speak with Ms. Lagunas should you have any questions at 919-773-7411. For enrollment, please email Ms. Rodger, our Data Manager at


As always you can reach out to me anytime. My email is We had a great start to the year. Our goal this week is get as many students and families connected as possible. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need me.


Your Proud Principal,

Mrs. Graf
