First Day of School

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! The first day of school for students is TOMORROW, Thursday, September 3, 2015. Based on new safety and security plans, only students and staff will be permitted to enter the elementary school building on the first day of school.

Tomorrow morning, the kindergarten, first and second grade students will meet their teachers in the All Purpose Room. The third and fourth grade students will meet their teachers in the gym. The homeroom teacher will walk the students to their classroom. This is only for the first day of school.

As always, we are committed to maintaining a safe and secure environment for our students and families. There will be additional opportunities for parents to visit the school throughout the school year. Thank you for your help and understanding as we work together to keep our students safe!

Car Rider Arrival

  • Please enter the school using the Stryker’s Road entrance when dropping off your child to school in the AM. All students arriving by car, in kindergarten through grade 4, will enter through the back parking lot entrance.
  • The doors to the school will open at 7:40am each morning.

  • When you enter the parking lot at the back of the school, please pull all the way up to the end the drop off lane, marked in blue. If there is a car in front of you, pull directly behind the car so we can get as many cars in as possible. Please remind your child to exit the car on the side closest to the school to ensure the safety of all students. Students should NOT be crossing in between cars to get to the path that leads to the school.

  • All cars should be in line for drop-off by 7:55am. All students should be in their homeroom by 8:00am.

Welcome Back

The classrooms and hallways are clean and beautifully decorated. The staff had two great days of in-service and spent countless hours preparing for the upcoming school year. We are very excited to welcome all the students back to school tomorrow!
