Welcome Back

The faculty and staff at Peine have been busy preparing for the start of the 2022-23 school year! We are so excited to see kids back in the building and to get back into the swing of things.

Our first day of school is Monday, August 22, and TEACHER ASSIGNMENTS JUST WENT OUT! I hope you are as excited about your teacher as they are about being your teacher.

Meet The Teacher Night

We understand and appreciate how much our students and staff look forward to back-to-school events like Meet the Teacher. Those opportunities to connect are important for so many reasons. Not only do they serve as an introduction for students and their families to their teachers and school staff, but they also provide an opportunity for students and families to take a look around the classroom, locate their desk, and meet new friends.

Meet the Teacher Night will be on Thursday, August 18, beginning at 5:00 pm and ending at 7:00 pm. This will be for all Kindergarten-5th grade students and families.

This is a time for you and your child to meet your child's teacher, drop off your child's school supplies and take a look around the classroom. This isn't a time to discuss specifics pertaining to your child, however, if you wish to speak to your child's teacher and share additional information please email them to set up a time.

The evening will end promptly at 7:00 PM so our staff can get home to their families after spending a long day at work.

This event will be on Thursday, August 18, beginning @ 5:00 pm and ending at 7:00 pm.

Kona Ice will be here!

Kona Ice Prices are:

Regular $3.00

King Kona $4.00

Souvenir $5.00

25% of the proceeds go back to the school!

First Day of School

Monday, August 22, 2022

Doors will open at 8:05 am. Kindergarten students report to assigned classrooms with a parent or family member. Grades 1-5 report to assigned classrooms. Breakfast students report to the cafeteria, then assigned classrooms.

  • Beginning August 29, parents will no longer be permitted to walk children to their classrooms.

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

This is an important reminder of the drop-off and pick-up procedures that we have in place for the safety and efficiency of the students and parents at Peine Ridge. Staff supervision and student drop-off begin at 8:05 a.m. If you arrive early, please wait with your child(ren) until 8:05 am to assure that they are supervised. Parents should not drop students off in the parking lot in order to avoid the drop-off line.

***IMPORTANT *** Due to student safety, students who walk home from school will not be able to meet their parents at the front of the building. Parents will need to meet their children at the designated crosswalk. If you are picking up your child by car, then you need to utilize the splash station pick-up line.

Walkers- Walkers are defined as students who walk home on their own without a parent/guardian. These students will be dismissed and will either travel home alone or meet their parent/guardian at a designated crosswalk. The parking lot is not a designated crosswalk and is extremely dangerous for students to walk through unattended. Please do not bypass the carline for convenience and put your child and others in danger.

Car Riders- Car Riders are defined as students who will have parents/guardians who will utilize our car rider line to drive through and pick their child up. This is the most efficient way if a parent is coming to pick their child up. The line might look long but it moves quickly.

We will continue using the Splash Station access road to line up cars for drop-off and pick-up. Rather than entering the Peine Ridge lot, cars will enter Splash Station’s entrance, loop around the back of Splash Station, and form a double line on the access road in the morning and afternoon. There will be two car lines. Cars will take turns coming from each line to form a single line onto Peine property and pick up their child(ren) as usual. The access road gates will be opened before 8 am in the morning and after bike riders and walkers leave in the afternoon.

A smooth and efficient procedure takes all of us working together. We appreciate and expect all parents to follow the outlined procedures.
