The Cardinal Chirp
Felicity Elementary Newsletter 8-30-21
Dear Cardinal Families,
We are almost through August already! Our students have done a great job of getting into the swing of things!
Students have developed their "hopes and dreams" for this school year and worked together to identify classroom rules. We used all of the classroom rules to determine 3 school-wide rules that will be posted throughout the school. We encourage parents to talk with their child about what each one of these rules might include. It is our goal to help students understand what is expected of them throughout the school. We will be setting them up for success through our conversations about these rules as well. Thank you in advance for your support and help with this!

We are receiving a lot of calls each day to change student dismissal procedures. Our policy states that phone calls will not be accepted. A note must be sent in with the details of the dismissal change along with the parent's signature. We recognize that emergency situations arise and we will continue to do our best to help but we are getting multiple requests daily that are not emergencies. Going forward, we will only honor phone calls for emergency situations.. Please plan ahead and send a note with your child. Please understand that dismissal time can be very hectic and we need your help to reduce the possibility of errors with student dismissal plans.
