Front Office News
The photographer will be on hand Tuesday, September 28th to take school photos. The students will be coming home this week with an order form. Please complete and send in with your child on the 28th.
Students may bring water bottles to have during class.
Car pick up at Dismissal
Parents/guardians picking up students at dismissal, we ask that you remain in your vehicles in order to facilitate a safe, smooth, and quick dismissal.
As a reminder, backpacks are to remain in the student's locker. As per the school supply list, a drawstring or other small bag is recommended to carry a student's Chromebook.
If you need to pick up your child before dismissal you must inform the main office prior to your arrival. You may do so by sending in a note with your child, calling the main office, or emailing both Mrs. DiStasi at firstname.lastname@example.org and Mrs. Diver at email@example.com.
Items forgotten from home
We will once again be using the grade level bins outside the main entrance for drop off of items forgotten at home. Please label anything you are dropping off with the student's first and last name, as well as his/her grade. Post-its and pens are provided for your use. Please do not ring the bell. The bins are checked periodically throughout the day and items are distributed to students during their lunch. For security reasons, a staff member cannot come to the door on request to retrieve items for your child.
Before the main office can grant admittance to the building, all visitors must:
- Notify the main office prior to arrival.
- Show ID before entering.
- Wear a mask.
Lunch options will be provided and served grab-and-go. A la carte items will not be available at this time. There will not be any sale of individual water or milk. Students will be sitting at desks in the cafeteria and may remove their mask once they have their lunch and seated at a desk. Once they are finished eating, masks should be put back on.
