5Es Survey -- PARENT INPUT NEEDED!
Safety Reminders for Avoca West Families
- All visitors MUST enter through the front doors. Although we do not require visitors to wear a badge after 3:00, parents still need to go through the front office so that we know who is in the building. Do not enter through the kindergarten doors.
- When the "feels like" temperature is 9 degrees or less, we will be inside for recess. The temperature is checked at the time that lunch/recess begins, so please plan ahead and pack winter gear if it seems there is a chance that students will go outside. Our PE teachers take students outside as well when possible. That movement and fresh air makes a big difference!
- Please be mindful of all of the comings and goings at Avoca each morning and afternoon. With the temperatures cooling down (understatement), more parents are dropping off and picking up. Please pay close attention to the stop sign (and Mr. Cruz!) and wait your turn in line to drop off. Driving around creates a precarious situation for our students who are exiting and entering the cars. Thanks!
