Rountree Report

October 2015

Fall has arrived!

The fall season is upon us! It is hard to believe it is already October. Our students have been having some great learning experiences. Rountree is very lucky to have amazing students, parents, and staff!

Important Reminders:

  • If you are using the carline, please pull all the way up and we will have your child come to your vehicle. We are trying to get more cars into the lot this year with less time in the street. Please DO NOT stop in the middle of the line or park in the line to pick up your child. Also, children need to load from the curb side. It is very dangerous to have a child go around the vehicle in a busy parking lot.
  • If you want to volunteer for activities this year you must complete a volunteer application. This form must be completed every year. Volunteer Form
  • Be sure to take the parent survey by clicking on the survey button at the bottom of the report. Surveys need to be completed by 9th.
