Celebrations and Thank Yous
We had such a wonderful start to the school year. Your children are precious!!!!
Thank you to:
- Mott PTO for providing iced down sodas and waters for staff on the first day of school.
- Pflugerville Realty owner Chris Templeton for providing donuts for staff on the first day of school.
- Mott Watch D.O.G.S. for helping with morning drop off on the first day of school.
Important Traffic Information
Some things to keep in mind:
- We are not going to count tardies until August 26th to allow parents a week to figure out the drop off strategy that works best for them.
- Car rider pick up line - children need to be able to buckle their seat belt independently. If you have to buckle their seat belt/car seat, that adds time to the process and causes students still waiting to be in the heat longer than necessary.
- Double stacking "zipper method" will be used for morning drop off and afternoon pick-up. That means cars will form two lines when entering the car loop and then merge, taking turns, into one line that pulls up to the curb in front of the school.
- Parking in the grass is always fine. However, please keep in mind, if it has rained recently, your car will probably sink in the mud! We are working with the district to add material to the grass area that will still allow for safe parking when it rains.
"HOLD ON TO YOUR BUNS!" Contest - Help Mott Win!
It's Back to school time! We LOVE our schools and all of the awesome staff that educate our kiddos! To say thank you- we are holding our biggest contest yet!
