Stonybrook School

Welcome back!


Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I hope your students enjoyed their first days of school.

In addition to the security procedures and protocols already in effect, you will become familiar with retired Lincoln Park Police Chief Mark West, now a Class Three Special Law Enforcement Officer (SLEO) at Stonybrook School. A Class Three SLEO is specifically trained and hired to provide security in and around schools. Officer West will be a full-time presence in our school. Your students are already giving "Officer Mark" high fives and fist pumps! Please join me in welcoming him to our school family.

I want to extend a special welcome to the parents of our kindergarten and third grade students. It’s so nice to see the familiar faces of our former kindergarten students joining us as third grade students. We are eager to see you on September 17th for Back to School Night.

Once again, Welcome! Mrs. LaFergola and I envision a year filled with the excitement of new learning and many reasons to celebrate.

As always, my door remains open,

Jodi Mulholland

School Visitors/Safety - Important Information

As you know, the safety of our students is our #1 concern.

When visiting our school, press the buzzer/button. You will be addressed by one of our office administrative assistants and either buzzed into the building once to drop off a lunch, etc. or twice to enter the school.

When entering, please enter individually; do not hold the door for another person.

I realize that in most cases, holding the door is the polite and courteous thing to do, but in order to address each person, we must adhere to this procedure. Bring your driver's license and sign in using our LobbyGuard kiosk. As always, when you do enter, please go directly to the main office.

When picking up your student(s) at dismissal, please park and wait by the cafeteria entrance in the rear of the building. The doors will be monitored beginning at 3:25 when staff members are present. Please notice there is now a buzzer on this door. Enter the cafeteria where you will be greeted and asked for identification. Please remember to bring your driver's license or other form of identification. Please, please, PLEASE do your best to contact the school before 2:30 PM with any dismissal changes. We understand there are times when this is unavoidable.

Thank you in advance for understanding that our children’s safety is NUMBER 1!

School Bus Safety

"Is my child safe on the school bus?” Every parent has the right to ask this. The answer, according to the Federal Department of Transportation is an emphatic, “Yes.” Statistically the school bus is one of the safest means of transportation around, safer even than the family car. Our school bus drivers do their best to maintain order and ensure a safe trip. But they cannot do the job alone; it takes the cooperation of families and children.

Riding the bus to and from school is a privilege, and if our students are not riding safely, you will be asked to drive your child. Thank you for supporting safe riding! Remember, a safe and enjoyable bus ride makes for a great start to the day. And a great start to the day improves the chances that students will come to school with an open mind ready to learn!
