Principal's Message

February 1, 2021

Dear Conway Cougar Families,

Thank you for your continued partnership to ensure our students and staff remain healthy and safe as our teachers engage our young cougars in meaningful learning opportunities!

In February, we normally celebrate Valentine's Day by sharing cards of friendship and love during a small class celebration. As we have all experienced, this year is very different as we work to reduce the spread of COVID 19. As part of our health and safety protocols this year, students will not be sharing Valentine's Cards. Thank you for understanding this necessary change and for your support in not sending Valentine’s cards to school.

As we move into the spring and prepare for state testing, 3rd-5th grade students are working hard to close gaps that occurred from being out of school last March-May. The Florida Department of Education is indicating that we will still administer the FSA, as planned, and that all students will need to test in a face-to-face setting. Our team is working with some additional strategies to ensure all students are safe, including a possibility of utilizing make-up days and Saturdays to invite [email protected] students to campus. More information will be provided as it becomes available.

Finally, our annual parent survey is online until March 12, 2021. Please take a moment to complete this confidential survey to let us know your opinion of how we are doing at Conway Elementary. It only takes five minutes and is available in multiple languages. You can access it at
