4th Grade Mr. Anderson-Different Open House Time

For those of you who have Mr. Anderson, there's been a time change. He will be available from 6:00-7:00 PM on this night. If you have younger students, you can choose to go to their classroom visits from 5:30-6:00 and then go to his classroom at 6:00 PM. Otherwise, his classroom will be open and your child can feel free to find their desk and other items. We hope you stop by and meet him personally.

Drop Off and Pick Up

Our west and east main doors will be the only doors open for entry in the morning. When dropping off your child, please use the driveways or the streets. Always use the passenger side to drop off and pick up your child(ren). When parents are dropping off/picking up their child, the older siblings will go to the younger siblings spot. Here is the list of where to drop off and pick up your child(ren).

Kindergarten: Drop off students on west side (flagpole side). Students will exit at 3:15 pm through kindergarten wing doors. Pick up on west driveway. If you have older students, you'll have to remain there until their dismissal time.

1st Grade: Entry and Exit through East main doors by blue tile (Dismiss at 3:15)

2nd Grade: Entry through West main doors (flagside) and exit through west main OR west playground (Dismiss at 3:20)

3rd Grade: Entry through West main doors and Exit through north vestibule (Dismiss at 3:20)

4th Grade: Entry and Exit through east main doors (Dismiss at 3:25)

5th Grade: Entry and Exit through east wing main doors (Dismiss at 3:25)

*Bus/daycare students will be dismissed at 3:20. They are picked up on the south side in the staff parking lot. Please do not pick up your children from here as there are several busses and daycare vans that need that space.
