Ernest P Barka End of the Year Newsletter


Dear Parents and Guardians, 27 May 2020

It is hard to believe that our school year is coming to a close on June 5th. I would like to extend many thanks to our students, parents, and staff for another year of learning at Ernest P. Barka Elementary School. Although this year isn’t ending as our typical year would, I want you all to know that we are grateful for your patience and support this year. I would like to thank our staff and parents for working so hard to make our Remote Learning a success.

Below we have listed some important end of the year events and procedures to follow. Please feel free to call the school if you have any questions or you can send an email to the person listed on each procedure.

NOTIFY OFFICE IF MOVING – ldowney@sau10.org If you know that you are moving over the summer months, please notify our office as soon as possible. To ensure proper student placement for next year, it is imperative that we have accurate information to transfer your child’s records to their new school. Please send the new address and any other pertinent information in writing to our office before the school year concludes. Your child’s records will be transferred to the new school when we receive a records request from the receiving school.

MEDICATION REMINDER – cthomopoulos@sau10.org In order for your child to receive medication next year, the school will need a new order from your physician. Forms may be obtained on the school district web site under health forms.


Daniel J. LaFleur, Principal
