    Dear Families,

    What an AMAZING first week of school! Students were so excited to return to learning, meet their teacher, make new friends and see old friends. Please continue to send reusable water bottles with students. Also, it is helpful for students to wear closed-toe shoes such as tennis shoes for playing outside during recess; this will eliminate injuries. Please return important information that was sent home in the first day packets.

Our first bell is at 8:35 and that’s when students will be allowed on campus to enter the building. FAmilies, please say “goodbye” to your child at the gate. Families are not allowed inside the school during arrival.

     

    Dismissal

    Dismissal is at 3pm. Kindergarten through 2nd grade students dismiss under the covered area. Third through fifth grade students dismiss out of the parking lot doors. The older students often meet up with families and siblings at a designated location. After 3:07pm, any remaining student is brought to the front of the school outside of the main entrance. The office closes at 3:30pm so all students MUST be picked up no later than 3:30. If you have an emergency and are going to be late, please call our office to notify them.

    Please see this link for additional traffic safety reminders. Student safety is our #1 priority. Students should not cross the street except at designated crosswalks.
