Family Time

The beginning of the school year can be a very busy time between learning new routines and schedules. It is so important to find ways to stay connected as a family. I have included a nice little infographic that gives some ideas on how to build social emotional skills at home. These activities can be an effective way to get your child to open up and talk about their day or a particular problem that is bothering them. Some of these ideas are just good strategies for decompressing after a long day at school or work. I hope you find them helpful!

Arrival and Dismissal

Arrival - Please pull all the way up to the Main Entrance Area before letting your child out of your vehicle. There are staff members posted to ensure that your child arrives to their designated door safely. Do not let your child out in the middle of 157th Street, it is unsafe for your child to cross through cars using the drop off lane. Also, please be mindful of students on 156th Place. The school zone speed limit is 20 MPH.


Dismissal - Please maintain a 20 MPH speed around the building. Also, please watch for students that are still learning traffic safety. The staff parking lot is NOT a designated pick up area, please do not use this space to pick up your child.
