Mrs. Sigrist has been Standing OUT!

Mrs. Uekman nominated Mrs. Sigrist as the Springhill Stand OUT for this week! She said:

"You are a true StandOUT at SES! You do so much in your role already and then you volunteer for more! No matter what is asked of you, it's always a "yes" with a smile. I am so thankful SES is the recipient of you selflessness. You have a true servants heart!"

Counselor's Corner

I so enjoyed getting to go into classrooms to spend some time with our awesome students and re-introduce them to me and my job as school counselor. OUR character word for the month of September is RESPECT. Please contact me if I can be of any assistance to you or your children.

Car Rider Procedures

Big picture
Here is a graphic showing the flow of traffic for car rider line. A couple of things to note:
--Cell phone use in line is not permitted. (It is actually against the law!)
--Please pull your car all the way forward, and we will retrieve or deliver your child from or to you. It is important that we maximize space in the line by pulling all the way up to the car in front of you.
--Be sure you have the car tag hanging on your mirror. These are handed out at orientation or you can pick yours up in the office. If you do not have a tag with the child’s name on it, we will ask you to park and come in to the office with your ID.
--Morning arrival is 7:30-7:50. After 7:50, you will bring your child into the office to check them in as tardy.

--Dismissal is 3:20-3:40.


  • The updated school calendar for the 2022-23 school year can be found here.

  • Drop off begins at 7:30 a.m. and pick up will begin at 3:20 p.m. Please remember to pull up as close as possible to the car in front of you. This allows us to load eight students at a time and helps keep our traffic line off of Elliott Road. All students must be picked up by 3:40.

  • Instruction begins at 7:45 a.m. Students are counted tardy after 7:50 a.m. The first 30 minutes of the school day is an essential time for personalized learning to occur for all students. The best way you can help your child academically is to get them to school on time.
