The Bi-Weekly Update from Bennett-Hemenway Elementary School
Things to Keep in Mind:
SCHOOL SAFETY: We welcome parents at Ben Hem and want to be sure everyone knows our protocols for access to the building during the school year. As you know, our doors are locked to the public. Visitors can gain access at the front door. Our office staff will let you in. Visitors are then required to sign in at the office. Please have your driver's license with you to scan. If you don't have a driver's license, our office staff can help you sign in. We keep a log of all visitors throughout the school day and it is managed through this system. When you are admitted into the building, please do not hold the door for anyone else. All of our staff have access cards to get in. Each visitor is required to buzz the office to gain access to the building. Our systems work really well when everyone follows them. Thank you in advance for helping us with this important work
Please send your students to school with a water bottle and a snack each day. We have bottle filling machines that students can use to refill as needed. Everyone has snack daily and should bring that in from home.
Please do not park in the parking lot in the morning. We have more staff working at Ben Hem this school year and need to be sure they can park and get into school in the morning in a timely manner.
Remember to that you can update PickUp Patrol at anytime. This is the way we reconcile attendance and run dismissal so please add any changes to your account in a timely manner.
