ROYAL REVIEW (8.26.2021)

To be Christ-centered in our words, thoughts and actions.

Staff Spotlight

A new feature we are adding to our "Royal Review" and school website is our "Staff Spotlight!"

We will share with you a poster of one or more of our staff members each week, along with some fun facts about them; so you can get to know all of us one by one. Our first two teachers are new to Queen of Angels this year: Middle School English Language Arts teacher, Mrs. Henderson and Spanish Teacher, Mrs. Pacora.

DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURES

REMINDER:

Our doors do not open until 7:30 am. If you drop off your child before 7:30, they will not have supervision. Please wait until 7:30 to let them out of the car. Also, please pull all the way to the end of the sidewalk. If you stop early, then we cannot get all of the cars in the area where the pylons are.


For some, drop off and pick up can be a very stressful time. We would like to explain the procedures more in-depth and try to assist and alleviate any stress. Here are our drop off and pick up procedures:


DROP OFF PROCEDURES:

1) Please pull all the way up to the end of the sidewalk if you are the first car. If you stop right in front of the school, there is a backup.


2) Do not allow your students to get out of the car if your car is stopped before the front door. We can fit about 5 - 6 cars at the sidewalk. Those cars can let children out, but after that, please wait. It is not always safe to let your child out, especially if they are in the passenger seat on the driver's side.


3) If your child does not get out of the car quickly, please park on the side parking lot by Irene Street and help them get out. You can then walk them to the sidewalk and one of the adults will help get them to the front door. PLEASE do not park in the main parking lot and try to walk over to the entrance. There are a lot of cars trying to drop off and this is dangerous.


4) You must stay in the pylons and not pull around other cars. The pylons are there to make sure cars do not drive on the outside of them, and students can safely get out of the passenger door on the driver's side.


5) Please do not get out of the car to get your child out. We have adults outside that can help your child get out of the car. This can also cause backups.


PICK UP PROCEDURES


After a full week and a couple of days of school, you have experienced our pick-up procedures. Thank you for your patience with this. It really is a well-oiled machine. Our pick-up lines are usually completely done within 15-20 minutes. This is quite amazing considering the number of cars that are here. Here are a few things to remember about pick-ups.


1) Mrs. Simpson is calling students out to the cars. We are ok if you stand outside your car to watch or for your child to see you, however, please do not leave your car. This makes the dismissal a little more difficult.


2) Some parents walk up to get their child. We ask that you are patient, as we may not call your child until the end of the dismissal announcements. There are times we are able to call them a bit earlier than the cars leaving, and we will do our best to do that.


3) There is an adult staff member that will stop cars from pulling into the line at a certain point. This is because Mrs. Simpson has started calling students names and if you pull in after that, we will not get your child's name called right away. Please wait for the school staff member to have you pull through. This should only affect those that are at the back of the pickup line.

Picture order forms will be given to students next week to take home.

WEBPAGE IMPROVEMENT

We would like your help in making our webpage more useful to your family. So, your input is valued! Please take just a couple of minutes to tell us what you would like to see on our webpage and what you already use. Here is the link: Webpage Survey (There are only five questions to answer.)


THANK YOU AHEAD OF TIME!


TEACHER PAGES

In the past, we have had teachers put stars on their windows that grandparents or parents could take to make purchases for much-needed classroom materials. This year, we are instead creating teacher pages on our website, where there will be a link to the teacher's wish lists.


Their page will also have a spot for their newsletters and other important links. Please go to our website click on Academics + Classroom/Teacher Links to see how you can help your children's teachers with classroom supplies. Please be patient, some are still getting their information gathered to put on these pages!

FAMILY FOLDERS

Please remember to send back your child's family folder with your completed papers before the Holiday weekend. We reuse these folders on weeks that we have many papers to get to the families.

UNIFORM REMINDERS

Page 25-26 in our Parent/Student Handbook states that shorts/skorts must not be any shorter than 2 inches from the knee, skirts must be below the knee.


We know that ties are still on order, and wanted to remind you that you can also purchase all navy bow ties on Amazon, if your child would prefer to wear a bow tie.

TARDIES and ABSENCES

Please make every effort to get your child to school on time. Also, if your child is going to be absent or late, please call the school office and let us know.
