**** SERIOUS SAFETY CONCERN****

I need your help with some very serious safety concerns that seem to have gotten worse recently. It is our number one priority to be sure your children are safe at school, but in order for us to ensure that, we need EVERYONE to follow our arrival and dismissal procedures.


* DO NOT DROP STUDENTS IN ANY PARKING LOT--students are to be dropped off only in the parent pick up line. Students should never be dropped in the parking lot. This is a very dangerous situation of students walking around moving cars.


*STUDENTS MAY NOT BE DROPPED OFF BEFORE 7:55 am. There are not staff members available to monitor students before 7:55. Please do not drop students at the door to stand on the porch until the doors open. This is a safety risk.


*ARRIVAL AFTER 8:20. The front doors automatically lock at 8:20 and students are tardy after that time. Any student arriving after 8:20 must have an adult with them to come to the office and get a tardy slip.


*NO CELL PHONE USE IN THE PARENT LINE. It is illegal to be on your cell phone while driving, especially when in a school zone. Please stay alert and off of your phone when in our school zone.


These are small things that will make a huge difference for our arrival and dismissal! We appreciate your compliance.

How Does Our Garden Grow?

We are excited that we managed to get our garden built just in time to plant various vegetables in our garden! Each of our kiddos will have an opportunity to plant, and care for the garden and hopefully soon, we'll all be sampling the crops we are growing!

EARLY VOTING CONTINUES THIS WEEK!

Don't forget to get out and early vote. Voting locations are open until November 3rd. It's important that each of us exercises our civil rights and why not take your kiddos with you to show them how important it is to vote!

Library Book Fair

Our Library will host a book fair this week through Nov 3rd. Students will be able to purchase books from the book fair. They may also invite "someone Grand" to eat lunch with them and join them at the book fair. As a reminder, students should bring a note to allow grandparents to come for lunch if the parent is not attending.
