We need your help at dismissal in the parking lot. Parking spaces are limited and parents are leaving cars unattended or in the aisle causing an unsafe situation for our students. Please park in a designated parking spot, do not double park or leave your car in the aisle. To ensure safety for our students, we are asking cars to wait at the gate until a space opens up or join the car line. When the parking lot is full, we will not allow additional cars in the parking lot and cars cannot park on the grass along Westview Drive. The good thing is that spaces open up quickly resulting in only a few minutes that the parking lot is full. On a daily basis, the car line is complete by 2:20. As a school, we provide supervision 30 prior to school and 30 minutes after school. We want all students to be picked up on time but we also have a window of time to pick up. If your child has to wait a few minutes after 2:00 p.m. that is OK. Please encourage your child to wait in the dismissal area until you park and walk up to get them. We do not want children walking through the parking lot without an adult.
So please make sure to give yourself more time in the afternoons to join car line or wait until the parking spaces are available… it does take a few more minutes but when there’s no parking the CAR LINE is the safest way to pick up or drop off. Just know that your child’s best interest and safety are our priority. So stop for a minute and take a deep breath, we will be able to work through this with a little more patience.
Notice to Parents of CogAT Assessment
Please be advised that we will be administering the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) assessment to all current 2nd grade students during the week of March 8th-March 10th. The assessment will be computer based.
The purpose of the CogAT is to assess the level and pattern of cognitive development of students and to screen all children for possible eligibility for gifted services. This assessment provides valuable information regarding your child’s learning strengths and styles that will allow teachers to improve differentiated instruction and student achievement in the classroom.
If you do not want your child to participate in the CogAT assessment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or your child’s teacher to receive an opt-out form on or before Monday, March 6.
