IPad Protection Plan
Arrival Information--Parent Drop-Off
When you pull up into the drop-off lane, please pull ahead as far as you can before letting your child exit your car. If there is a long line, please don't wait until you are directly in front of the door before letting your child out of your car. There is enough space for at least eight cars to drop off at the same time, and the children can walk up the sidewalk to the front door.
End-of-the-Day--Parent Pick Up
As in the past, we will provide you a pick-up tag for your child. Please write your child's name and grade clearly on this tag, and place it so that it is visible through your windshield. This way you will drive up, we can read your child's name and make sure that your child gets to your car. Please keep your car tag displayed until your child is in your car. Please also remain in your car and in line. This is similar to a drive through, where you place your order and receive your happy face. Please be patient, alert and courteous. Everyone has a schedule with places to go.
Tips For Having a Good Year
1. Make sure that your child gets plenty of sleep at night.
2. Communicate with your child's teacher.
3. Be positive about the school experience and staff.
4. Ask your child about the best part of his/her day.
5. Expect minor glitches at the beginning of the school year; it takes time to get the routine in place.
6. Speak up if you see or hear something that is questionable; we are all responsible for making school a safe environment.
Free Breakfast and Lunch & Forms
We still need potentially eligible families to complete and submit the Educational Benefits form. Federal and state funding is based on these results. In addition, families who qualify may receive discounts on Community Education programming along with discounts for extra-curricular opportunities. The forms and instructions are attached below.
