Northwest Early Elementary

June 2021

Notes from the Principal



The 2020-2021 school year has been tough on everyone but I would like to thank the entire Northwest Community and Staff for the level of understanding and support to continue learning in both the Northwest Early Elementary classrooms and on the See Saw virtual platforms. Going through this “Global Pandemic” we have improved some of our processes and we are excited to continue improving in the 2021-2022 school year. I wish you all a fun and safe summer!

walk students to the crosswalk, or drop off their student

in the drop off lane.

MEDICINE PROCEDURES

If your child needs medication to be administered at a school a medication form must be completed, along with a signature by the prescribing physician. The medicine must be brought in the original container with the prescription label attached.


  • Medication must be transported by a parent and checked in at the office.
  • Over-the-counter medications (cough drops, Tylenol, Tums) must have doctor's order.

Parking Lot Safety Reminders

  • Please stay off your cell phone! Your eyes on the road are the best tools for parking lot safety.
  • Please continue to pull all the way up and use the crosswalk.
  • If you need to escort your child inside please park in a designated parking spot and not along the drop-off curb.

MORNING TARDINESS

We encourage promptness since tardies affect everyone and disrupt classroom time. One of the most valuable life skills a student can learn from his/her parent/guardian is the responsibility of arriving at school every day on time. Morning is the time when important school news is announced, teachers define the plans for the day, and instructional goals are reviewed and set. The whole tone of a child’s school day is set in the first part of the day.


  • School starts at 8:55 a.m.

  • If your student is not participating in their classroom morning routine by 9:00 a.m. they will be considered tardy.

  • Students not in their classroom seat by 9:00 a.m. shall be considered tardy.

  • If the supervisory aides are not present when you drop off your student, they are tardy. Please make sure to come in the office and sign them in.

  • Doctor appointments/professional appointments are excused with a doctors note.



Please help support your child in learning habits that will help them be successful at school and throughout life. If you need help or have concerns getting your child to school on time please contact the office. We are here to help.

ABSENCES
