the EAGLE Eye
a weekly newsletter from Gold Ridge Elementary
A Message from your Princi"PAL"
Just a reminder for all parents and one thing for 5th grade parents.
1. Parking in FRONT/BLOCKING of Driveways!! Please DO NOT DO THIS. Gold Ridge is a good neighbor to our families surrounding the school. This is not ok to park/block the accessibility of our neighbors at their homes, even if it is only for a few minutes. Our children learn from us so please model appropriate behavior.
2. Reminder for 5th Grade Sly Park Parents:
On Monday, November 14th, luggage should be dropped off at the start of school along the sidewalk next to the bus loop and outside the administration building AT GOLD RIDGE off Halidon Way. Do not park in, or drive through, the bus loop to drop off any luggage. Parents watching their students leave or walking with them to drop off their luggage will need to park on the street, since there will not be any spaces available in either the primary or intermediate parking lots, and the bus loop is closed to all parking, due to district and private bussing services.
After dropping off luggage, students are to report directly to the multi, and at 8:00, they will be sent to the yard; parents are welcome to wait out front of school prior to departure, but we do ask that those parents doing so remain on the lawn adjacent to the office. Once the busses arrive, students will be dismissed by classroom groups to board… please do NOT pull students from line or engage in goodbye hugs, kisses, goodbyes, as it disrupts the very quick boarding process. As an aside, it is not necessary to pack a lunch for Monday; Sly Park will be providing all meals, including lunch on Monday and lunch on Friday. Do not send your student to Sly Park with any food, or disposable water bottles.
Enjoy your Veteran's Day weekend,
