News and Notes from the Principal!
Summertime has come to an end - We are more excited than ever to welcome back to school nearly 1300 McAllister ES Wildcats! The first day of school is bound to be #WONDERFUL - Please ensure that you have checked the transportation website and are aware what time the school bus is coming or checked the car drop-off maps to ensure students are dropped in the proper location tomorrow morning.
Morning drop-off begins at 7:05am and students are tardy at 7:40am. With competing traffic on Hwy. 144 - the earlier you get to school the better. McAllister staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have as well as direct you to appropriate locations as needed. Click Here for Traffic Pattern
Our afternoon pick-up begins at 2:30pm, please make certain that you have your car tag on hand and that you circle the building as pick-up will take place on the far side of the building closest to Buckhead East. If your child is a walker, walker pickup will take place in the gymnasium once all buses have exited campus. Our back gates will not be unlocked until 2:20pm for the safety of our children on the playground. We appreciate your patience with us as we work through the first week of school traffic logistics together.
I sure hope you are ready for the #BestYearYet - We look forward to partnering with ALL of our families to create the most ideal learning environment for each of our Wildcats! Once we get the school year rolling, we will welcome volunteers and lunch visitors after Labor Day!
- Monday, August 6, 2018 - First Day of School
