Title I Information

Dear Whitesides Families,

As we get ready to start a new year, there are a couple of documents I need you to read and sign. This is a requirement of being a Title I school. A parent/guardian from every family is required to complete the following:

1) Read the attached Title I Presentation and sign the Signature Form.

2) In the same attachment, read the Parent Involvement Policy School-Parent Compact and sign the Signature form.

Thank you for taking the time to do this.

Dropping Students Off At School

If you drop your student(s) off at school, please follow our procedures:
  • Pull all the way through the drop-off zone to the point where students would enter the playground area. Do not stop directly in front of the school, as this causes traffic congestion.
  • Do not park your car anywhere in the drop-off zone. If you want to walk your student to the door or their class line, you will need to park your car in the parking lot.

For the safety of everyone, please follow these procedures. Thank you.
