Barry Tiemann, Principal

Mrs. Overfield and Mrs. Hickoff, Secretaries

From the Desk of Mr. Tiemann

I would first like to take this opportunity to THANK all of the State Road students, parents, teachers, and staff who were able to attend the annual State Road Elementary Open House and Ice Cream Social on September 2! What an awesome opportunity to reunite with friends and build the excitement of returning to State Road for another great learning year! I am extremely honored to be your principal, and I am full of anticipation and excitement to be a part of all the fantastic things that will take place here throughout the year.

I would also like to WELCOME all of our new families and students into our school; and WELCOME BACK those who already call State Road your home! As we begin to meet our new students, our hopes and commitments for success are renewed as we grow to care deeply for each one. The reason you see so many smiles around here is because of you—each one of you.

SunShade for our State Road Playground!

As a result of our State Road PTO "Invest" program this past school year, we were able to raise enough money to purchase a large SunShade for our playground. The SunShade was installed prior to Open House and is now ready for us all to enjoy! Thank you again for your support!

Allergy Information for our Cafeteria

  • All food served in the cafeteria in our ‘hot lunch’ line is peanut-free! We are no longer serving any peanut butter sandwiches or peanut-based products. (There will still be sunflower seeds available on the salad bar).

  • Our Food Service Department is offering a new Birthday Treat option to all families. Please see the Fenton Food Service website for more information.

  • We are continuing with our Allergy Table Option in our Cafetorium. Students with severe food allergies will still have the option to sit at our Allergy Table; or they can choose to sit at the “Red Zone” (which is a Nut Free area of our cafeteria tables) along with a “Yellow Zone” where friends with safe lunches can eat. This will allow our students to feel like they are part of their class and not segregated from everyone, while still sitting at a safe section of the table.

Please Help Prevent the Spread of Sickness, Head Lice, etc...

Parents: The best way to prevent the spread of sickness, communicable diseases, or issues such as head lice is to take preventative steps at home prior to sending your child to school. Please also contact the office right away to let us know of any sickness or confirmed case of lice that your child may have. For more ‘health’ related information, please visit the State Road website and select “Student Health Info” under the Information Tab. Thank you!
