Drop-Off Procedures

Thank you for being patient and open-minded about the drop-off. I feel that our student safety in the lot has dramatically increased. I have a couple of reminders.

  • As the drop off line moves forward if you are the first vehicle waiting please pull forward to the crosswalk so we can get more students out at the same time.

  • Please pass on the procedures to anyone other than yourself that might be dropping students off.

  • Only one crosswalk available (outside main doors) to minimize stopping the drop off lane.

  • Staff will be positioned to help your student out of the vehicle especially if a bag is snagged on a chair. If they open a door, it helps so you do not have to exit.

  • BUS DROP OFF LOT – Busses have been leaving around 8:45ish, once they are moving and out of the lot feel free to use this to drop your student. Especially if you are running late or stuck on Spencer Rd. Only use this lot when the busses are out.

  • Mr. Renner has assured me that your child/ren will not be marked tardy as long as he is outside. Once he comes inside, you'll need to park and sign your child in.

Thank you again,

Officer Parks

Snow Day Calls

Wow! What a lot of snow days we've had. Remember, if you receive a call, it's voice-activated, and you'll need to say, "Hello" for it to activate the message.

Mr. Renner made a few videos of him reading books that are from the book fair. Gather your children and let them hear a story from their principal. More to come soon!

The Question of the Week

What We Learned

Last week's question focus was asking about P.T.O. meeting times. We currently meet at 4:00. Take a look at the results below.

It looks as if we should offer evening meetings as well.

For those that didn't know, we do offer childcare already!
