Bus Riders

For students riding the bus, the following health and safety measures have been put in place:


  • Bus drivers, staff, and all students in grades preK-12, if medically feasible, must wear facial coverings while on the bus.

  • All students will use hand sanitizer before entering the bus.

  • Sanitizing dispensers have been installed at the entrance of each bus, and Transportation will ensure that dispensers are full before buses leave the bus yard each day.
  • Buses will be cleaned and disinfected between each bus run.

  • In the morning, students will load beginning at the rear of the bus, and then filling seats moving forward toward the bus driver. This will minimize the number of student interaction and exposure on the bus.

  • We have special bus tags for our Kindergarten students. Kindergarten students will display the bus tag, which will contain their first name and bus stop, on their book bags This will alert bus drivers that a student is a Kindergarten student, and must have a parent or legal guardian present at the bus stop before the student is safely released from the bus.

Coolidge Drop off and Pick up Procedures

Drop off and pick up are stressful times in our parking lot. Please drive slowly, be patient and obey the following procedures at all times. Our children’s safety is most important during these times.

The Parking lot / Parent Walk Up- The parking lot can be used for drop off or pick up. Your car should be parked in a parking spot and you will need to walk your child to and from the school doors. Your child should NEVER be in the parking lot without you at their side. The ONLY place that parking or sitting is permitted, is in a designated parking space. Parking anywhere else could prevent our buses from coming or going.

Cross walks - We have three cross walks in the parking lot. Please come to a complete stop at each one and use them to cross when walking across the lot.

LOOP -Parent Pick-Up

The Loop (Recommended) – The loop can be used for drop off or pick up. Students should remain in their cars until the car has come to a complete stop in the painted half circle area. Please do not let your child out of the car, or wave your child to your car, while you are in any other part of the loop area or driveway. Do not leave the loop area until the vehicle in front of you has left.


When using the loop this school year we ask that you place a sign in your car with your last name. Please place the sign in the passenger's side window. One of our staff members will greet you by the opening of the loop. They will then let your child know numbered spot you will be meeting them at.

January Lunch Calendar

Please Welcome Miss Priscilla Walsh


Dear Parents and Teachers,


My name is Miss Priscilla Walsh and I will be an intern in your students art classroom this semester under Mrs. Stark. I currently am attending Western Michigan University where I will be graduating in May 2021 with a BFA in Art Education with an emphasis in painting. I have been a member of the College Art Association, Michigan Art Education Association, and National Art Education Association.


I am excited to experience this upcoming semester with your students as we get through these interesting new times together! While in the classroom I hope to encourage the students to explore new techniques and discoveries they will have through their art. Throughout the semester I will be observing, teaching, and collaborating in the classroom.


When I’m not working on things for school I am either creating art or working on my family's reindeer farm in Fowlerville. I have grown up with lots of animals and have loved all of them. A lot of my art connects to the animals I’ve raised combining some of my passions.


Hopefully we will get the opportunity to meet at conferences or some point during the semester while I’m here!


Sincerely,


Priscilla Walsh
