Safety Patrol is Back!

Dear Mattos Families,

Our one and only drop off and pick up loop has members of our 2023-2024 Safety Patrol helping out! Please use our loop to drop off and pick up as this helps ease traffic parking on the streets. Just a few drop off and pick up reminders:

  • Please leave early enough in the morning to drop off by 8:23 a.m. After 8:25 a.m., students will have to go to the office for a tardy slip.
  • The loop in front of the office is the only drop off and pick up area.
  • The loop near the 1st/2nd Playground is not for drop off or pick up.
  • The middle lot is for staff only- not for drop off and pick up.
  • Use the crosswalk when crossing the street.
  • "S" in S.O.A.R. is for SAFETY, so please help us reinforce that at Mattos.
  • Parents/Guardians: Want to volunteer in the morning from 8:00-8:25 a.m. with Safety Patrol? Contact

Reminders and Announcements:

  • Illnesses: All students must be fever and vomit-free for 24 hours prior to returning to school without the use of medication.
  • Coming Soon- PTA Reflections Contest...Stay tuned next week for details!
