Hello Crissman Families,

Well, this week wrapped up quickly! I hope that everyone is ready for the holiday season to officially begin. As we approach Thanksgiving, there is so much I am thankful for! I am thankful for all of you and your wonderful kids! Thank you for trusting us with your child(ren) each and every day! We sure do enjoy them!

I am also thankful for my wonderful staff who are always doing what's best for our Crissman Cougars! This staff cares so much about our community and making sure our students learn and grow in a safe environment!

Parking Lot Safety

I wanted to review the parking lot procedures for our school. I know that many of you may already know these procedures; however, it is always a great reminder for our families.

1) Use the student drop off zone located to the left of the parking lot entrance from 8:45 - 9:05 am. Please do not enter the bus loop during this time as it’s unsafe and causes additional congestion in the parking lot.

2) Student Drop-Off Lane: Move all the way to the back of this area (near the dumpsters/playground) and pull up next to the orange traffic cones. Once you arrive at the orange cones, please have your child exit the vehicle quickly and do not linger so that the next car may proceed in a timely manner. Please do not enter the area past the cones as this is a designated student pathway during this time. When your child has exited the car, please continue the “loop” around the end of the lot (in front of the dumpster/playground) and exit to Wolf Drive.

3) Parking in the Subdivision- Please do not park on the street where you see signs that say “No parking, Stopping, or Standing”. If you can read the sign when you are parking, do not park there OR if you are between the two signs, do not park there. Double Parking- Please do not park on both sides of the street. Our buses need to get through. The Shelby Township Police can give you a ticket.

Thank you so much for your patience and support!

As always, if you arrive past 9:00 am, please accompany your child to the office and sign them in.
