Winter Party Information

This is an exciting week for our students as we get ready for our Winter Break. Please see the information below about the Winter Parties on Friday. Please note, ONLY PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS are allowed to attend Winter Parties. This is due to safety and space concerns. Siblings, including small children will NOT be permitted to attend.

Please be sure to "pre-RAPTOR" to get your visitor badge as we will have very long lines to get a badge on party day.

Students can be checked out from the classroom on party day by signing the sign-out roster and bringing the slip as you exit the front of the school.

Our lunch times are different on early dismissal days, and we do not allow lunch visitors on early dismissal days. Thank you for your understanding.

Lunch Visitors Please Read!

Seating at lunch is extremely limited in our cafeteria for visitors due to continued increases in student enrollment.

Limit visits to birthdays or a maximum visit of once per week

Visitors limited to a maximum of 3 per student and must be persons who meet KISD visitor guidelines for elementary students.

Lunch visitors are restricted to parents/step-parents/guardians, non-school aged siblings, grandparents (with written permission from the parent) and campus mentors per GKC (REGULATION). Visitors do not include aunts, uncles, or neighbors.

Avoid Mondays, Fridays, and days before holidays, whenever possible.
Sit side by side at the visitor tables to provide maximum seating availability
Visitors must sit with their child only at a table designated for visitors
Due to Safety Rules, and guidelines from the Fire Marshall we cannot allow visitors sitting on the floor
Since our first obligation is to provide optimal seating for students, we will continue to monitor the number of visitors at lunch. If we continue to experience overcrowding with lunch visitors, we will consider implementing additional guidelines to ensure adequate seating during student lunches. We are hopeful that if all parents follow the requests listed above, our school will continue to have daily seating available for all who wish to have lunch with their child/ren. Thank you for your patience as our Bethke family continues to grow.
