Greetings from The Counselor!

I hope your 2020 is off to a FABULOUS start. We are well into our groove here for sure. There are various activities/events coming up within the next few weeks, so in the effort to stay on top of things, here are a few bits of info.

1. Each class will be doing an activity using pictures from magazines during our upcoming Wylie Way Day on Wednesday, February 12th. If you have extra, school appropriate magazines laying around, we would very much appreciate your donations. I will put a box in the office labeled “MAGAZINES” for easy drop off.

2. Wylie Way Day, February 12th – Wear your Western Wear!

3. WATCH DOG DADS – On the mornings of the Writing, Reading and Math Benchmark and STAAR test days, we allow the 4th graders doing Leadership and Safety Patrol to have the morning off to eat breakfast and enjoy some time with their classmates. Since they are our greeters in the car line and at the doors on these mornings, we will need your help to take their places. We would also like to extend the invitation to our Akin Moms. Since an approved background check is required, you can email me to let me know that you are interested and I can verify the background check in the system.

The time frame would be 7:00 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. on:

Tuesday, February 25th (Benchmark)

Wednesday, February 26th (Benchmark)

Tuesday, April 7th

Tuesday, May 12th

Wednesday, May 13th

These dates seem distant, but time really flies by during the 2nd semester. If you are available to help on one or more days, please email me at Tierney.leeper@wylieisd.net.

4. COATS – We have a variety of children’s coat sizes available to those that may need something warm for the rest of the winter season. Please email me or come by the office for assistance. On a similar note, SO MANY COATS and JACKETS were donated before the holidays because they were not pick-up from our Lost and Found. If your child has misplaced a coat, jacket, hoodie, etc. PLEASE, PLEASE come by to look through the L&F. It’s almost full and we are only 3 weeks in.

Thank you for every bit of your support. Have a great weekend.

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Akin Parents,

We have had some questions regarding our drop off procedures. Below you will find an arrival and dismissal map. Please note the following things:

• The back bus loop is designated for Wylie ISD buses and day care buses only. Private car

traffic is not allowed in the bus loop during arrival and drop off times.

• All drop off and pick up traffic is diverted to one lane in front of the school.

• It is against the law to use cell phones in a school zone. This includes the drop off and

pick up line.

• All outside doors lock at 7:30. Students being dropped off after 7:30 will need to enter the front doors and come through the office. Tardies will be given for students arriving after 7:35.

Thank you for your help in ensuring the safety of all of our students, staff, and parents!
