  • Welcome to the 2016-17 school year at Abernethy. I am so thrilled to be starting another school year with all of you.

    I wanted to draw your attention to a couple of important things for us all to remember at the beginning of the year. The front door is the main entry for the school. The doors to the playground in back and the breezeway will be opened for student entry beginning at 8:30 for breakfast. After the tardy bell rings at 8:45, all doors but the front door will be locked. At that point the only door available for entry for anyone not requiring ADA accessibility is the front door.

    We welcome volunteers. Anyone remaining in the building after the tardy bell rings at 8:45am needs to sign in at the office and wear a name badge. If you plan on volunteering regularly, please make sure you have a current background check on file.

    Just a reminder, school starts at 8:40am with the tardy bell ringing at 8:45am. There is no supervision on the playground before school. If your child arrives after the tardy bell at 8:45 he or she needs to sign in at the office and get a green slip before going to class. The school day ends at 3:00pm. There is no supervision on the playground after school. Students not with an adult are asked to go directly home.

    The final reminder that I would like to draw your attention to is food. We have several rooms designated at peanut or nut free, depending on student allergy. Please be mindful as you bring snacks/lunch of the safety concerns. You will know if this impacts your child’s classroom through a note in your child’s first day packet.

    On the topic of food, there is a school wide agreement that birthdays will be recognized without food of any kind. Classroom celebrations will be arranged through the teacher and must offer a mixture of healthy options and treats if food is provided. Thank you in advance for all your support. If you have questions please contact our office at (503) 916-6190.

    I am looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year at Abernethy.

    Take care,

    Heather Hull
