Principal Message

Marianne Rupprecht, Principal of Carter Lake

Dear Carter Lake families,

Thank you for your OUTSTANDING participation during parent-teacher conferences! We appreciate you taking a few minutes out of your schedule to talk with your teacher about your child’s progress. I’m hoping that you had an opportunity to share what is working and what is not working for your child. If you did not get a chance to do that, please reach out to me.

Elementary schedules will shift at the end of the first trimester. Beginning Dec. 9, students will participate on Wednesdays in their daily check-in and social and emotional activities with their classroom teacher and then begin online independent learning for the remainder of the school day. With this schedule adjustment, all students (elementary and secondary) will participate in online independent (asynchronous) learning on Wednesdays. Teachers will be available to individuals and small groups of students remotely through Microsoft Teams. Some students may continue on-site learning on Wednesdays through December. We will communicate our Wednesday schedules directly with you very soon. 

Half-day & Thanksgiving Schedule: Please mark your calendar

11/25, 7:45-10:15am - PM group students synchronous with teacher, no asynchronous time

11/26 No School

11/27 No School

Friday, Dec 4 at 8am we will have our 2nd Coffee with the Principal. I’m interested in listening to you about what is working well and what’s not so that we can problem solve together. Each day, I’m presented with new challenges. My goal is to think outside the box so that our families and students feel supported. I will send out a zoom meeting link as we get closer to the date for that.
