Message from the Boss...
We are going to try a bell schedule beginning Monday.
We will have the bells ring at these times:
7:50- dismiss to LEAD time
8:25- dismiss to Advisory
3:16- cars, walkers and 1st wave (Bus # 127, 22, 1-1st load, 18)
3:23- 2nd wave (Bus # 148, 149-1st load, 45, 154, 43, 51)
3:26- 3rd wave (Bus #16, 87, 149-2nd load, 1-2nd load) daycare vans
Please go over this with students Monday. They should already know their schedule but reintegrate the bell number with the bus waves.
To be sure that all receipts are turned into accounting in a timely manner please have them turned into Mrs. Carol by February 1st. This will give time to get ordered items in, receipts accounted for, etc. At this time, due to the budget, ALL items must have a pre-approval form signed before purchasing.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Money, Money, Money
Money turned in at the end of the day has to be counted, cash count completed, verified twice and taken to the bank... this is such a long process for end of the day.
** With recent audits, changes are being made on how we handle accounts, money and budgets. As a school and a district we HAVE to follow the rules and guidelines that the STATE AUDITORS set for us. No Exceptions! Thank you for your understanding and corporation.**

WEATHER CHANGES- IT'S GOING TO GET COLD!
Cooler weather seems to have arrived, and cold weather will soon be the norm. Keep a watch for students that are coming to school each day without an appropriate jacket/coat, socks, and/or shoes. Please make sure that you contact Mrs. True, Mrs. Terrell or myself to get proper weather attire.
FROM THE CAFETERIA
Please remember to notify the cafeteria manager of any field trips that will be taking kiddos out of lunches so I can make the appropriate changes to our counts.
Also IF sack lunches will be needed the cafeteria manager needs to know approximately how many will need a lunch- including bus drivers and teachers at least 3 weeks before the field trip to order in sack lunch foods.
The morning of the field trip or the day before a field trip a final count and the names of those receiving the lunch will be needed. This is for accounting purposes and allergies.
Thanks so much!
**Field Trips need to be requested as normal. Please make sure the correct date format is used. For example, 01/01/2019. We need accurate counts for students and teachers. Please do not estimate. We need to be notified at least a week in advance of any changes to the number of riders.
**We are only able to provide five drivers per day. Once we have reached our limit for a particular day, field trips will be closed.
**Trips should be scheduled to leave no earlier than 8:30AM. ALL trips should return to the school before 2:00PM. These times will allow for potential traffic delays.
**Incidental fees (i.e. Entrance or admittance fees) for drivers will be be covered by the school or a receipt(s) from the driver to be reimbursed will be sent to the building principal for processing.
**If more buses are requested than are needed and a driver has already been scheduled for the trip, the school will be responsible for the pay of the extra driver.
**Teachers/Sponsors are responsible for the behavior of the students while on the trip. Students and staff need to remain seated while the bus is moving.
**Teachers/Sponsors need to check the bus at the end of the trip to make sure their students have not left personal items, such as backpacks, instruments, cell phones, or trash on the bus.
