Dear Families,

The start of our instructional school day is 7:30 a.m. and we dismiss at 2:15 p.m. Students who arrive after 7:30 a.m. are late and must be signed in at the attendance desk by an adult 18 and over. No student should be dropped off at the door. Siblings under 18 years old are not allowed to sign in students. If the doors are locked, the student is tardy.

I know your children are more important than anything in your lives, but it is always a good reminder for me to see children with their families – to see the smiles and the love and the care. I’m always interested in what’s going on with you and your family.

The procedures and daily activities of your child’s classroom should be familiar and comfortable to them by this time in the school year. If your child is still experiencing anxiety or any type of concerns, please contact your child’s teacher. You are welcome to also include me in those types of communications. We will be happy to talk with you on the phone or to schedule a meeting to talk together regarding ideas to help your child or the situation. Please don’t ever hesitate to contact us – we want to help.

When plans change for a student’s transportation home in the afternoon, you must inform your child’s teacher in writing of the change. We cannot accept phone calls to the school as authorization to change how a student gets home. If your child does not have a note, they will not be able to change their existing mode of transportation home.

My last topic I want to mention is our upcoming Fall Festival. It is a wonderful evening with lots of fun activities. I hope you and your family are able to stop by the festival for some games, good food, and fun times with friends. I wish you and yours a beautiful fall season and an October filled with a little bit of candy, some good books, warm fires and memories to treasure.


Remember: Students+Parents+Teachers=SUCCESS!!!
