Great Job Parents/Guardians!

A special thank you from our office team for getting your students to school on time at 7:45 AM. We have had very few tardies, and it's so great to see kids in class on time learning.

If you drop off your students in the morning, please do your best to have them ready to exit the car, and please pull all the way forward so we can fill our drop-off curb with all the families behind you.

Safety Drills This Week (Fire, Tornado, and Lock Down)

On Wednesday, August 24th, Anderson School will conduct their state-required annual Fire Drill and Severe Weather (Tornado) Drill. We will also practice a Lockdown Drill with law enforcement personnel present. During this time, students will review and practice the classroom procedures.

Parents/guardians may opt their child out of physical participation in this drill each year by emailing the Principal, Nathan Jarot (, and Karen Burke at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled date. Students who are opted out will receive an alternative school safety learning experience with a certified staff member.

Thank you,

Nathan Jarot
