4th Grade STAAR Writing
Information from Susie Loyd about STAAR Training
I will be sending emails and calendar invites regarding STAAR training, information about STAAR or TELPAS, and any updates that are important to you regarding STAAR or TELPAS. Please review all emails and attend training to have a successful STAAR season. If you are unable to attend any trainings please contact me so we can get a make-up session scheduled. Also, if you have any questions regarding STAAR please don’t hesitate to ask.
At this time I need you to be aware of the following:
The Distribution of Test Materials module from TEA is the required module for 2016. As a reminder, all personnel who assist in any way with state assessment, are required to view this module and print the certificate at the end and submit to the CTC by Friday, March 4, 2016.
If you are a new teacher to our campus you must complete all 3 modules and print certificates for each module.
Arrival and Dismissal Procedure Changes
Our goal is to remake, make over, alter, revamp and make a change for the better!
To ensure a safe and rapid drop off and pick up of our students each day, the following procedures have been developed. The cooperation of the entire DWE community is imperative for its success. We assure you this is not an act of change just to make a change, but to ensure a safe and productive means for students, parents and buses during our morning arrival and afternoon dismissal.
Starting Tuesday, March 1st, parent drop off and pick up will be in the back of the building. Buses will drop off and pick up at the front of the building. Our walkers and bikers will keep their usual method of entering and exiting the campus with moderate supervision. During arrival and dismissal times the entire front driveway will be used and cars will not be allowed to enter to drop off or pick up students. Adjustments during rainy days will be made.
Due to the new procedures, if you would like to change your child’s mode of transportation from walker to car rider or bus rider, please send a note to your child’s teacher or fill out a Change of Transportation form in the front office.
All buses will enter at the front of the building. Students will be dropped off and enter the building through the front doors. Small buses will continue to use the small circular drive. Parents needing to use the small circular drive will be given a special PASS that will permit them. Daycare buses will let out in the back of the building in the car rider line. Students arriving after 8:20am will need to be brought to the front entrance to check in through the office.
Early arrivals, I-station and Choir and Drama Club rehearsals will also enter through the back of the building.
All buses will park at the front of the building using the entire circle, pass the playground area. Small buses will continue to use the small circular drive. Parents needing to use the small circular drive will be given a PASS that will permit them.
Parent pick up will be in the back of the building using the same format as we currently use but with more pick up stations. As you exit the campus, parents are expected to turn right onto Crutchfield. There will be no left turn there during the arrival and dismissal times.
