great first three days of school! We want to thank all staff, parents and
students for helping things go so smoothly. Please be patient with drop off and
pick up until students are used to the system.
Monday, Aug. 20th will be the last day parents can escort
into the building or to the front door in the morning. After that day all
students must be dropped off through the front drop off line, not in the
parking lot. (The only exception is for students with medical needs that have
been pre-approved.) We also require that students be picked up through the
car-rider line as well unless there is a medical reason or a scheduled
K Parents- Starting the week of Aug. 13th, have your students show you where they go each morning instead of you showing them. K students should be able to show you to follow the green line on the floor and they should be able to walk to class independently without any issues. We’ve been practicing since day 1.
Grade 1 & 2 Parents- Your students should be ready to walk in by
themselves starting this week.
Guardians- Please turn in all school paperwork and $15 school fee ASAP. Also if you plan for
your child to be a car rider occasionally, please stop by the school office and
get a car rider pass.

= We recommend that all students supply their own headphones or ear-buds to use during computer time. These will be placed in a Ziploc bag with your child’s name for their use only. We also recommend XL Ziploc bags be sent to school to put backpacks and jackets in each day. This keeps student backpacks and jackets from touching other students’ items and prevents the spread of bugs.

principal uses Facebook and a parent forum email/ text group to communicate
with parents in-between newsletters. The school council and PTO can also use
this to get input from parents or when we are in need of volunteers or
information. If you would like to sign up, send an e-mail to email@example.com with “forum” in the subject line and tell us if you prefer e-mail or text.
SHOES & CLOTHES- Our enrichment classes
run for 5 days in this order: Library, Art, Music, P.E., and Science (LAMPS). Students
also have 2 scheduled recess times every day. Your child needs tennis shoes on
P.E. days and also appropriate clothes (not your brand new clothes) on Art
days. Check the teacher newsletter for exact days. Because of daily
recess, we ask that students NOT wear flip flops or sandals without a heel or
ankle strap to school. Flip flops break
easily and cause students to fall as they run. Also, please keep in mind that
high heels are never appropriate for a student in grades K-2.
