2F Weekly News

Week of Sunday January 3, 2016

A Note from Ms. Graves

Dear Parents,

We have had such a fun and exciting week in 2F. Second graders often come back in January with a new-found sense of maturity and an even greater hunger for learning. That was certainly the case this week and I was so proud of the work students were doing and what a stronger sense of community we have! Hopefully your child came home telling you about new learnings, laughter, and some silliness we had this past week.

Please read below for some big important school announcements.

New Entry to Campus Procedures

  • Starting January 17th, 2016 there will be some changes for students and parents entering the ASD Campus​ supporting student safety.​ ​All students will be required to scan their Dragon Wristband entering and exiting the campus. It is recommended that you remind your child to wear their wristband daily. Replacement Dragon bands may be purchased at the front desk of the Administrative entrance for 50 qr. Wristbands will be distributed to Lower Elementary Students next week by their teachers. Your child's dragon band will be labeled with their name by a key tag. We kindly ask parents to keep this label on the wrist band for easy identification.
  • Parents and domestic staff will not be permitted through Gate 5 for morning drop off.​ ​Students​ may enter through Gate 5 using their wristbands and teachers will be there to supervise starting at 7:40 AM. Parents wishing to accompany their children to classes are asked to enter through Gates 8 & 10. ​
  • Pick-up procedures will remain the same, parents will be able to enter and exit the campus through Gate 5 from 2:45 - 4:15 PM. Pick up procedures for PACT Tuesdays and our Pre-K Students will also remain the same, parents will be able to enter through Gate 5 at 12:15 PM. We kindly ask parents and guests to enter through Gate 8 during the school day. We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we work to keep our school safe and continue the improvements to the ASD campus.

Change to logging on to NVS

  • To improve the security of student accounts we are going to change the students' NVS passwords from 12345678 to a unique number for each student. Next week, or soon after, you will get an email containing the new password. This password should be used from then on when you log onto NVS. If you have any problems or questions please feel free to contact me directly by email at pblacklock@asd.edu.qa or through your son or daughter's classroom teacher.

Happy New Year,
