School is Here!
~Kristy McKnight, Principal
First Day Reminders
- Kindergarten students will greet their teachers in the front foyer. Once all students are present, teachers will take the students to the classroom.
- 1st-5th grade students should head to the back playground upon arrival. Parents are welcome to join the children out back and should use the sidewalk to walk around the building to get to the playground. Please do not accompany your child through the building to get out back.
- If parents need to be in the building, they will need to have their license scanned in the main office.
Welcome Event & Supply Drop-Off
ll students and families are invited to drop off school supplies, to meet classroom teachers, and to sign up to support the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) on Monday, August 12, 2019, from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
I encourage you to follow the included schedule:
1:30 pm to 2:30 pm – Last names beginning with A– I
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm – Last names beginning with J – Q
2:30 pm to 3:30 pm – Last names beginning with R – Z
This will assist us in meeting your needs in a timely manner and should cut down on the crowds in classrooms when dropping off supplies. However, please understand you are welcome to come anytime between 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm.
Safety and Security at Ferson Creek
I wanted to take a minute to remind parents about specific safety procedures that we have here in District 303 and at Ferson Creek. Last summer our office underwent a major renovation so that enhanced security measures could be installed at our main entrance. We have two sets of locking doors at our main entrance. During the school day, we ask that visitors come to the main school entrance, press the buzzer, stand in front of the camera before identifying themselves and providing the reason for their visit. Visitors will be buzzed into the vestibule by school staff. Frequently, our office staff will be able to assist you while you are in the vestibule. Please know that this enhanced security practice is done to help keep our building as safe as possible. In the event that you would need to enter the office, you will be buzzed through the second set of doors. All parents and visitors that will be entering other parts of the building will need to have their driver's license scanned and wear the temporary ID given to them by the office staff. Thank you for your understanding of our procedures as we work to keep Ferson safe.
