Lost and Found

This year we will not be doing weekly Lost and Found pictures. At the end of each month we will set up a table with all the Lost and Found items, so that the students have a few days to look for their belongings. We will take a picture and send it in that week's newsletter. At the end of that week, anything remaining will be donated. We provide these monthly pictures as a courtesy, but parents can stop in and look for any lost items any time they realize an item is missing. Of course, having names on items helps us be able to return them quicker to the owner.

Safe Arrival Attendance System

To enhance the existing absence reporting procedure, the School District of Waukesha introduced a new, more efficient student absence reporting system called "SafeArrival" which started at Rose Glen in October of 2018. This system works in conjunction with our district messenging system (School Messenger). It reduces the time it takes to verify student attendance, makes it easier for you to report your child’s absence and makes it easier for staff to respond to unexplained student absences. We would love to have all of our families using this system by the start of school.


Pre-Excused Absences: If you know your child is going to be absent and you want to report that before the student is marked absent in school, Safe Arrival provides three convenient methods:


1. Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at https://go.schoolmessenger.com). The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.


2. Use the SafeArrival website, https://go.schoolmessenger.com. The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.


3. Call the toll-free number 1-866-490-7371 to report an absence using the automated phone system. These options are available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.


Future absences can be reported at any time.


Post-Excused Absences: If you were not able to report your child’s absence in advance you will be notified by the SchoolMessenger system if your child is marked absent.


You are notified of a reported absence within minutes of the reported absence.


The School Messenger app or the website will allow families to customize where they want to receive their notifications and allow them to excuse the absence right from the notification.


If you report your child’s absence in advance using the SafeArrival toll-free number, website or mobile app, you will NOT receive these notifications.


Additional assistance can be found on the District's Safe Arrival Support Page:

Rose Glen Online Directory

Did you know that Rose Glen has an online family directory? Have you signed up yet? You decide what you want included in the directory.


Having access to this directory is a great way for you to stay connected with other school families. It also is the way that you would get contact information for your child’s classmates, including information you would need for sending out birthday invitations via email or U.S. mail. (Please remember that unless your child is inviting the entire class, party invitations may not be distributed at school.)


Another important reason you may want to be included in the directory is to give your child the opportunity to be invited to birthday parties or other gatherings with classmates, since neither the teachers nor the office staff is able to share contact information with you. Hopefully you have already signed up for the family directory. If you have not, please take a few minutes to do so.

PTO

PTO Events Endangered of Being Cancelled

Thank you to all that have volunteered to lead some of our fabulous events for this school year. Unfortunately, some events do not have team leaders. If we cannot get teams to take the lead by October 1st then we will take it as a sign that it is time to move on from the event or the event was not meant to be this year. These events are always well attended and it would be unfortunate if the events did not take place. The PTO Board is here to assist and support you. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and for considering to lead one of our fabulous events! The following events need a team to lead them:


Dining Nights

Scrips

Grandparents' Day (looking for an additional leader)


Please reach out to any of us, email us (RoseGlenPTOBoard@gmail.com), or send a message to our FaceBook page if you are interested.


2019-2020 is going to be a great year!
