Sunset Valley Elementary 11.15.19


Hello Jag Families,

Thank you for being mindful of our policies and procedures that we have in place to keep students and staff safe. Whether new or returning SVE Jaguar Families, the following information should be helpful for arrival and dismissal procedures for our school.

- While in the car rider line, please have your number visible, pull all the way up to the first Jaguar Paw, and load/unload quickly.

- If you arrive after 9:00, please plan to sign your child in with the office staff.

- If you are meeting your child at the doors for dismissal, please park in the north parking lot.

This prevents students from having to cross through the line of cars.

- Feel free to pull into a parking spot if something unexpected occurs such as an untied shoe or lost item. This will allow our line to continue at a timely pace.

As always, thank you for being so wonderful to ensure safety and timeliness for our Jaguars.

-Mrs. Rachel Flood
