Dear Erickson Families,
We are having an AWESOME first day of school! Smiles are everywhere!
Tomorrow, Friday, August 26th is our PTO Picnic in the Park event from 5:30-7:00 (see flyer below). Families can pop on over to enjoy a popsicle, socialize, and play at the many Erickson parks. Students can bring footballs, soccer balls, etc. if they would like to organize games in the fields. Can't wait to see you there!
Please expect buses to run a little late for the first few weeks of school as drivers are learning students' names and bus stop locations. I will be riding each bus home at dismissal, over the next few weeks, to learn routes. It is recommended to be at the bus stop 10 minutes before the expected arrival time. If you have any questions about the bus, please fill out the form below. Bus routes are created by the bus company. Every student is routed who lives more than 1.5 miles from school. If you do NOT want the bus service because you pick up and drop off everyday, please fill out the same form below to decline bus service. Bus riding families were sent an email regarding signing up for the First View Bus Tracking App. Here is the information to reference if you are interested: BUS APP INFORMATION
Please take the time to review the Erickson Family Handbook. Next week, each class will meet with Mrs. Frattinger and myself to discuss school rules and procedures.
Please reach out if you ever have any questions, call 630-529-2223 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great rest of your week!
If you received your child's bus route and have a question/concern...please fill out this form and we will get back to you with information.
