Message from Leadership

We are excited to see that spring is back! We have welcomed April with open arms and are ready for the warmer days. Warmer weather, longer days, and testing comes with spring and we want to make sure that we know our students and their well being is extremely important to us.

Please understand that while it is important, state testing is a one day snapshot into a child's learning and one piece of data that we use when looking at the entire child. We hope that your children do not feel anxious or stressed over the upcoming state assessments because they are well prepared through the amazing teaching and learning that has taken place over the year.

We want everyone to enjoy these last few weeks of school before summer is here, we have some fun events planned. If there is anything we can do for, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Transportation/Attendance Reminders

Dismissal Notices:

If your child will be going home a different way, please let the FRONT OFFICE. Telling the teacher is wonderful, but sometimes they can't check voicemail/email/Dojo until it is after school-your best option is always the main front office.

We ask that you have the call made by 1:30pm. If messages are not cleared or given in time, please know the teachers are trained to send kids home their regular way unless told otherwise by administration. We CANNOT take a child's word for it when it comes to leaving school safely.

Walker/Car Rider reminder:

While we know the line can sometimes be long, please be sure you are not sending your child home a walker but parking in front of the school to bypass our lines. There are signs posted for not parking or stopping in front of the school. Many of you are still parking across the street and walking your children up to the building. This is causing concern with many of the residents. Please follow our procedure and car pool flow. The building opens at 7:45 to allow students optimal time to enter the building.
