  • Instruction begins at 7:45 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.
  • Please do not pass in the car rider line. This is not safe for our students or parents. Please make sure your child exits out of the passenger side so that they do not have to cross in front of cars.
  • If you have any transportation changes, please make sure that you let Ms. Donna know by 2:30. This helps ensure that she has enough time to alert teachers of the change.
  • Parents will be able to come eat lunch with their child at our outdoor picnic area.
  • Your child may bring a water bottle to school and refill it our touch less water fountains.

WELCOME BACK! I hope you and your family had a restful, wonderful break. I cannot wait to see your kiddos and their smiling faces first thing Wednesday morning!

I wanted to touch on anxiety as we start back to school. It can be hard on some students to leave their parents after a long break. If that is the case, or this is daily for your child, these strategies could really help!

If you have any questions or need anything, please do not hesitate to contact her. or 501-679-1029 ext 3.
