Happy Fall Break!
We hope that all of you enjoy fall break! There will be no school for kids from Friday, October 1, through Friday, October 8. Students will return to school on Monday, October 11.
We appreciate the fantastic turn out that we had for parent/teacher conferences. I want to stress the importance of being able to communicate with your child's teacher all year on platforms like Seesaw or Canvas and also by email. Please call the school if you need to access any accounts or talk to a teacher and do not know how to go about doing that. We are here to help!
So far our fall weather has been outstanding. As we get into our colder months, keep in mind that we go outside and kids need to be prepared for cold weather with warm layers of clothing. If you have any need for coats, hats, or gloves we are happy to help! Feel free to email me or call the school and we will be happy to arrange free items for your child. Please also be sure to place your child's name on tags of coats, hats, and gloves if possible. Many students have the same items as other kids and it can be a challenge to get lost items returned to the correct owner. Thanks for your help with this!
Have a great fall and let me know if you have any positive feedback to share or questions about our school days.

Car Line Reminders
We would like to thank you for helping to make our car line arrival and dismissal process nice for everyone!
To avoid waiting for long periods of time in our car line, we recommend that you show up close to our school start and dismissal times. When too many people show up too early, it creates a line that can disrupt Avilla's street traffic. Please be sure to display your car number when you are picking up a student in the afternoon. All car rider students enter and exit at door 2.
School start times:
Mondays: school begins at 8:45 am, door 2 opens for breakfast at 8:30 and opens at 8:35 for everyone else.
Tuesday - Friday: school begins at 8:00 am, door 2 opens for breakfast at 7:45 and opens at 7:50 for everyone else.
School dismissal: 2:45 pm daily
*Please consider entering our car line after 2:35 pm to avoid creating an unnecessarily long car line. Our preschool car line is in place before Kindergarten - 5th grade parent car line.
