A message from our Principal

Orchard Hills serves second & third grade students for the Norwalk School District. We love our new building, new mix of staff, and our 2nd/3rd families in each hall. Our focus and purpose is growing learners and leaders with all students and staff. Welcome to Orchard Hills Elementary! – Sheila Taylor

Next Tuesday, March 30th we are having spring Lifetouch pictures. We have sent home a package flyer and order form; let us know if you did not receive one. This year will be different than past years. Students will need to pre-order, similar to what we do in the fall. All students will have their pictures taken since we will not know who has or hasn’t ordered online.

Remote students have the opportunity to come between 7:30 & 8:30 next Tuesday for pictures. Come to the main entrance and we will send you to one of the two cameras.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Sheila Taylor, Orchard Hills Principal

Message from our School Nurse, Mrs. Greenlee:

Happy Spring! I just wanted to take a moment to let those of you who were not aware, I have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully it was diagnosed very early. I will be having a mastectomy on March 23, so I will be taking a leave of absence for recovery. The plan is to return on May 17. I will have a few different substitutes who will take amazing care of our students while I am gone. They will be responsible for the day to day activities in the nurse’s office including giving daily medications. Mrs. Taylor will be managing all things COVID, including isolation and quarantine. Please feel free to continue to email me through 3/22 for any items that come up over break. After break, please communicate through the front office and/or through Mrs. Taylor. I just don’t want messages to be missed. I will sure miss your kids while I am gone! Thank you for your love and support. It truly means the world to me.
