Meadow Heights Mustangs Newsletter

August 13, 2021

The first two days of school were absolutely wonderful! It was so exciting to have a full campus with kids on the playground, eating lunch, and learning in classrooms. Even with masks on, it was easy to see the smiles of students through their eyes. Our students are learning routines and procedures this week and in the following weeks. Teachers are building communities in their classrooms each day. Thank you to all our families for your support and excitement as we start school this year.

School Communication is the Key

As we all work together to raise your children, teachers can better support you with open communication. Please check with your child’s teacher about the best way to keep the lines of communication open throughout the school year.

The school handbook will have a wealth of information for you regarding school information and procedures. The School Handbook will be emailed to you when school starts and will be available on our webpage. Please notify the office if you need a hard copy of the School Handbook.

A link to the school calendar is below. The calendar includes school and PTA events.

Each week you will receive a Newsletter like this one. The newsletter will highlight school and some district information.

Driving Safely in School Zones

Safety is the number one priority at Meadow Heights. To ensure our students and their families arrive and leave school safely, please follow our guidelines. Park only in permitted areas before and after school. All crosswalks and red zones must be clear of cars at all times with no parking, backing up, or stopping allowed in these areas. The white curbed and coned area on Parkside Way is for drop-off and pick-up only. Students must be ready to quickly disembark cars in the morning. In the afternoon, students must wait behind the fence and be ready to be picked up. At no time are cars allowed to be stationary for an extended period of time in the white curbed and coned areas on Parkside Way or in red zones. Please be courteous to our neighbors and do not block any parts of their driveways during drop-off or pick-up.

School Supervision (before & after school)

Supervision on the primary (upper) yard begins when the gates open at 8:00 am. Students are not allowed on the campus prior to that time. Upper-grade students, (4th & 5th) start earlier and walk to their classrooms. When the morning bell rings, students are to line up on the primary (upper) playground at their classroom number to meet their teacher. Please plan on saying goodbye to your child in line and refrain from entering the classroom. This will allow teachers to take roll and start their day of instruction without interruptions.

There is no yard supervision at the end of the school day therefore both playgrounds are closed. We are fortunate to have a beautiful park across the street if your child would like to run around and play with friends after school.
