    Dear Families,

    Thank you to all of our families who supported our PTA t-shirt fundraiser! Our PTA Clean Up event is canceled for this Sunday. We will let you know if we are able to reschedule. 

    We do not observe Halloween at school since this is not a holiday that is celebrated by all of our students and families. If you do celebrate, please keep your child’s costume for later that day for when you go trick and treating.

    Arrival

    Students should wait outside of the East gate, outside of the gate by the Head Start building or at the end of the walking path from SE 87th to the school (closest to the futsal court). 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 are dismissed 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.
