Community Update!

We are on track with the modernization of our school campus! Please make note, that next week Tuesday, May 21st, contractors will be placing fencing around the perimeter of the basketball courts on the upper playground near the portables to begin the installation of power, and a new fire hydrant. This process will take most of the summer to complete, and we hope teachers will be able to move in to the new portable classrooms before the start of the school year.

The following teachers/grades will be moving into the portables on the upper playground; Kamla Birusingh (2nd), Carolyn Paxman (2nd), Michelle Davis (1st), Alison Leonardo (1st/2nd), and Lori Winfrey (1st). The goal is to have the renovations for Room's 1-7 completed by the winter break, and we will continue to keep you posted on these timelines throughout the renovation process.

If you were unable to attend last month's PTA meeting, here is the slideshow that was presented. The architect drawings were presented to both teachers and parents for input. We will provide communication about construction timelines soon.

You can also read about the work that has been completed, and work that is scheduled for Proctor here:

Or visit the District website for more information about everything Measure G related!

As always, please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.

Please Follow the Proctor Parking lot Rules and Procedures!

Recently, there have been several instances with unsafe driving practices inside our parking during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. Please use the outside right lane to go through the drop off area, and pull all the way forward when picking up your child. Do not block crosswalks, and keep circling if your child is not in the drop-off zone to keep traffic flowing.

Also, PLEASE be respectful to our Student Leaders who are assisting in the drop-off/pick-up zone. And PLEASE listen, and follow the directions of the Proctor Staff, who work to keep students and our community safe!

Identified drivers who continue to not follow these rules, and exhibit unsafe driving practices will be banned from using the school parking lot for drop-off and pick-up.

Thank you for your understanding!

Principal Ghereben
