Principal's Message

Hello Field Families,

It is great to see so many parents utilizing the student drop off system in the east parking lot; however, we do need parent volunteers to help supervise and assist students with moving from the car to the walking path. Therefore, we will restart the rotation of classroom assistance as we did last year. Teachers will inform room parents of their assigned week as will I through this newsletter. In order to keep everyone safe, please adhere to the following rules:

  • If you are driving and dropping off, please do not pass another car. Please wait for the driver in front of you to move forward.
  • If you are walking from the PazNaz lot, please do not cross in the middle of the lot. Please use the walking path that begins at both the top and the bottom of the Field parking lot.

Our Back to School Night is on Sept. 17, 6:00 - 7:30pm, and dismissal is 12:25pm. BTSN is an event for parents so we ask that children do not attend.

Parent and Teacher Conferences will be held throughout the month of October. We also have a pupil-free (no school) day on Friday, October 16, dedicated to conferences. Teachers will have a sign up procedure available at Back to School Night.

Thank you for using the RSVP feature below for special events. It really helps me make sure I have secured an appropriate room and also have enough materials to distribute.

We are getting closer to moving back into the cafeteria! I am planning to start the process on October 3. More details will be shared as they become confirmed.

I hope you have a wonderful week!
Thank you,
Ria Apodaca
