Joshua Dixon Return Reminders: In-person education begins again on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Please remember that there is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 18, 2021. Arrival is still 8:55-9:10 a.m. Student drop-off is out front, and students are encouraged to exit cars all along the side walk. As to not block traffic on Salem St. or Stanton Ave., and especially to keep the alley clear for buses, traffic may be directed in the beginning. If your child has a school-owned device and they are returning in-person, please send back the Ipad or Chromebook on Tuesday. The 2nd grading period/1st semester ended today. Report cards will be coming home on Wednesday, January 27th instead of the original date of Friday, January 22nd. This will allow students ample time to complete and return all outstanding work. Those students remaining remote, will receive packets and instructions from their teachers. We hope everyone is looking forward to the return to school as much as we are. We miss the children and cannot wait to see their smiling faces. Happy New Year to All, have a great weekend and Welcome Back!

Dixon Families: The Dixon Office will be open normal hours from Tuesday, December 15, 2020-Friday, December 18, 2020. Feel free to buzz the front doors for packet pickup and/or giving tree gift drop-off. Many are familiar with the pick-up and drop-off of remote packets. The tubs are in the front entrance labeled with teacher names. Student packets will be in those tubs by the end of the day tomorrow for the remainder of the week, and as packets are completed they can be returned. Classroom teachers also have individual expectations that they will be sharing with families. Your continued understanding, patience, and support are so very appreciated. We are blessed to live in such a wonderful community. Have a great evening. Any questions, please email kim.sharshan@columbianaschools.org.

Joshua Dixon Families: Wanting to keep students and staff as healthy as we can heading into the holiday season, BEGINNING DEC. 7-18, we will be changing our learning platform from traditional in-person to HYBRID. Nothing will change for students that are currently all remote. From December 7-18, this is what the schedule will look like… PRESCHOOLERS-attendance will remain as NORMAL. Current REMOTE learners will continue to do what they already have in place using teacher provided packets and/or on-line materials. Whatever you already do, keep doing. This is strictly for those that are already REMOTE. In order to increase social distancing, students currently in-person learning, will now be an Aviator or a Pilot. The schedule is below: M and W Aviators IN-PERSON/Pilots REMOTE T and TH Pilots IN-PERSON/Aviators REMOTE *Friday December 11th Aviators IN-PERSON/Pilots REMOTE *Friday December 18th Pilots IN-PERSON/Aviators REMOTE *The Friday your child attends he/she is welcome to wear pajamas to celebrate our annual Polar Express Day! EVERY TEACHER WILL BE IN CONTACT WITH THEIR CLASSES REGARDING SPECIFICS TO CURRICULUM AND CONTENT EXPECTATIONS. Thank you for your understanding and continued support as we work our way through these extenuating circumstances together. Have a super evening.

Joshua Dixon: A reminder that today is the Fall Fun Day Costume Procession at Dixon at 2:00. Optimistically speaking, there is only a 30% chance of showers, in the event that it is raining at 1:30 we will cancel and I will use this platform to alert parents. Spectators are Parents ONLY. Parents should park in the First Christian Church Lot or the Far Library Lot. Overflow can use the Dixon Side Lot, NOT THE FRONT LOT PLEASE. Parents can line up on the sidewalk in front of the Library. The sidewalk in front of Dixon is for the Students. As per our Columbiana County Health Dept. approved plan to have this event, parents need to return to their cars immediately following the procession. Students will enter the building and then parents can form the dismissal lines in the front lot. The Columbiana Police Dept. will be assisting with line up and the exiting of the lots especially the side lot due to buses entering. No parents can come into the building afterwards and NO STUDENTS WILL BE DISMISSED FROM THE PARADE-UNLESS WE RECEIVED A DR. APPT. NOTE THIS MORNING. Dismissal routine will be the same. Once again, thank you to those who get in line and have their children dismiss as car riders and not walkers that go to cars. If this is a continuing safety issue, walkers will be dismissed following the car line. Links are below to review our plans for today. Thank you and have a great weekend.

Dixon Parents of Car Riders: It was brought to my attention that due to cars blocking the entrance, exit, and alley during car rider dismissal, the patrons visiting the Public Library across the street are unable to pull in or out of the library parking lot. Perhaps coming in off Stanton to make a right into Dixon would be a better option. Your consideration while in the dismissal line is appreciated. Thank you.

The administration and staff at Joshua Dixon Elem. have worked hard to create a safe school environment, which includes our afterschool dismissal procedures. Please assist me in doing my job, which is to keep children safe, and teach them that rules matter. It is unfortunate that a notification must be sent again, because some families are continuing to park in various locations, and come to the entrance, telling their child to dismiss with the walkers, when in fact, they are not a walker at all. Students at Dixon are taught to follow the rules and hold themselves accountable. Asking them to not follow a rule is causing an internal struggle for many, and may have long-term effects for some. Beginning Monday, regular walkers will be dismissed. Those car riders coming up as walkers, will be called out following the line of traffic. The dismissal routine is in place for a reason and the children know the expectations. Any questions, please contact me 330-482-5355 ext. 34507. Thank you and have a great weekend. Mrs. Sharshan.
