BACK TO SCHOOL REMINDERS
Please remember to follow the MISD dress code which can be found at http://www.magnoliaisd.org. It addresses these topics:

Labels & Backpack Tags
Please label your student's backpack, lunch kit, supply box, etc. for easy viewing for school personnel. Students have received a hard, plastic ID tag that is attached to the backpack so that our staff and bus drivers can identify your student quickly.
Students will continuously be encouraged to practice great hygiene by washing their hands and using the hand sanitizer stations installed in all the classrooms and cafeteria.
If you are coming to eat lunch with your child, please check in at the front office. Our parent dining area is in the PreK/K/1st hallway facing the outdoor learning center. Feel free to use the picnic table outside as well unless that area is closed for the day!
Keep reading! Keep reading! Keep reading!
SNACK & WATER BOTTLE (No glass!)
Students should bring a water bottle and a snack every day. The time of snack will be determined by the teacher. If the teacher requests snack donations, they must be store bought and completely packaged (nothing homemade or opened).
All visitors to campus must check in at the front office and wear the nametag given at all times. We want to know who is with us always, so please remember to keep your nametag on and visible.
🧁🎂Birthday Treats - Outside Food/Treats🧁🎂
Is it your child's birthday? Would you like to have his/her class celebrate with your child? Since food brought from outside is no longer accepted (store-bought cupcakes or cookies or balloons!), we have a terrific option! MISD is offering some yummy options of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with icing, three varieties of Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, and two flavors of Capri Sun or water! If food is not your way to go, fun pencils, stickers, etc. are great birthday treats to share with a class as well!
Please complete the form from your teacher and send back at least 2 weeks in advance so the cafeteria can ensure that your child's birthday treats are ordered and delivered to his/her classroom.
CAR RIDER REMINDERS
Thank you for your patience and understanding over the past three days during drop off and pick up!
Reminders about the car rider line:
- Make sure your car tag is in clear view. If you do not have a tag you will have to park and sign out from the front.
- Pull all the way up and minimize gaps between cars!
- If you need to buckle, pull into the parking lot.
- Blinkers on when turning out of the campus.
