Amanda Moore Elementary School
End of September/October 2017 Chalkboard News
The first day of school was a great success as well. Students who attended the meet the teacher night were confident and well informed as to where to be and how to get there. The staff and I held an expectation assembly in the gym where students were able to learn the building wide routines and procedures they will be practicing and following this school year.
Our new office was another major change from years past. It looks amazing and is almost fully functional. We are still working through some of the minor adjustments, which are not known until the space is utilized on a daily basis. So far, there has been nearly an elimination of access to the building without a specific reason, which is the objective of the secure entry. We are still having a few parents/guardians walking through the open doors as students arrive in the morning. Please be sure to not access the building without going to the office, especially if the doors are open to welcome our students during arrival.
We at Amanda Moore are looking forward to the best school year yet! Each of your children will grow academically, socially and emotionally as we help empower ALL of our students to succeed!
2017-2018 Parent/Student Handbook
Do you bring your pet to Amanda Moore?
Over the last eight years, we have been very fortunate that we have had pets on the property without incident. Until reading the new handbook, which explicitly prohibits any animals on school property, I was unaware of the board policy, and therefore, I have never enforced the policy. Now that I'm aware of the policy, I am informing all parents, guardians and guests that pets will not be allowed on school property. Below is what is in the handbook located on page 6.
"ANIMALS ON SCHOOL PROPERTY In order to assure student health and safety, animals are not allowed on school property, except in the case of a service animal accompanying a student or other individual with a disability. This rule prohibiting animals on school property may be temporarily waived by the building principal in the case of a unique educational opportunity for students, provided that: (a) the animal is appropriately housed, humanely cared for, and properly handled, and (b) students will not be exposed to a dangerous animal or an unhealthy environment."
Please help the Amanda Moore staff by informing family and friends and reminding those you see with pets on school property.
Thank you for your cooperation.
