McIntire Elementary School

Mission: High Levels of Learning for ALL!

August 25, 2019

Best First Week EVER!

We've had lots of awesome at McIntire School this week!

  • Several classrooms had 100% turnout at Open House on Monday night. Thank you for the great turn out!
  • Classrooms are working on collaborating, teamwork, and getting to know one another.
  • We had our first Hornet Pride Notes (positive office referrals) this week. Students were able to call home to tell their families what they were doing well.
  • 96% of our students have been in school over 90% of the time!!
  • Morning arrival has been amazingly steady, smooth, and stressfree!

Look What's Coming Soon!

This Week at McIntire:

Kindergarten parents, this is the week we start to let the kids ease into walking to their classrooms by themselves. We'll work with you on what's best for your child as they become more independent. Some kinders may wave bye and say, "see you later, mom." Others may need you to only go to a certain point further from their classroom every day.


Thursday, 8/29 - FPS Facilities Planning, 6:00 pm, McIntire Cafeteria/Gym

~ Arrival and Dismissal~

Thank you for being patient and helping us through arrival and dismissal. It takes time, teamwork, and patience to get close to 400 students in and out of the building each day. School begins at 8:05 and we begin dismissal at 3:20.


Arrival has been smooth and calm. Dismissal has been a little hectic but will get better as we learn our new students' names and cars and as the bus order becomes more consistent.


Car riders are dismissed at 3:20. Buses begin arriving around 3:30 and our last buses leave around 4:00. Please notify Debbie and Julia in the McIntire office of any dismissal changes early in the day. Changes after 2:30 can cause confusion for students and staff. 590-8500
