Principals' Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We cannot believe it is MAY already! We are so proud of our scholars and their hard work during state testing. We will also take our final MAP assessments in grades K-8 this month as well as DIBELS in K-2. We are excited to see the growth due to their hard work!

We are looking forward to warmer weather in the upcoming weeks. Please note scholars should not be wearing winter boots to school for remainder of the year. We are excited to end the school year with many great field trips, celebrations and promotions! Be sure to keep an eye out for important information regarding end of year events!

We are hopeful that we will have an excellent end to our school year!

School Bus Expectations and Reminders

Students who take a school bus are expected to act responsibly and respectfully at all times. The school takes a number of measures to facilitate responsible and respectful behavior, including but not limited to: The Code of Conduct and Related Policies apply whenever a student is on a school bus. The Principal or his/her designee reviews expectations for appropriate bus behavior at all Family Orientations. Classroom teachers review expectations for appropriate bus behavior. The support specialist or an administrator meets each bus every morning to ensure appropriate student behaviors with the bus driver. The support specialist or administrator contacts any parent or guardian whose child had failed to act responsibly and respectfully on the bus and imposes the appropriate consequences for the misbehavior.

Children Must:

  • Be at the bus stop 5-10 minutes prior to the scheduled time.
  • Cross in front of the school bus when crossing a street.
  • Keep buses clean, sanitary, and orderly.
  • Obey bus drivers, as they are in full charge of buses and pupils while in transit.
  • Always ride in an assigned seat.
  • Never cause damage to the school bus, and report anything noticed to the driver. Any student disfiguring or mutilating a bus will be required to pay for the damage, and denied further use of buses.
  • Never get off the bus at any stop other than your assigned bus stop, unless you have written permission from your parent and the bus driver.
  • Never fight, scuffle, or incite any disturbance creating a hazard to the safety of others on the bus. Never use obscenities or profane language on the school bus.
  • Do not extend arms or head out of the bus window at any time. Since school officials do not ride the bus, we will act upon referrals given to us by the driver.
  • First Referral – Bus Discipline Letter
  • Second Referral – 1 day bus suspension
  • Third Referral – 3 day bus suspension
  • Fourth Referral5 day bus suspension (Parent Conference will be scheduled before the child is permitted to ride the bus.)
  • Fifth Referral 10 day bus suspension (Parent Conference will be scheduled before the child is permitted to ride the bus.)
  • Sixth Referral – Loss of bus privileges for the remainder of the school year. The above consequences are the bare minimum for each referral. School officials reserve the right to impose greater consequences depending on the severity of the situation.

Uniform Policy: Dressed for Success!
