The Hoot Owl
Welcome to ORE!
Wednesday - Friday - Parents may walk children directly to the classrooms. If you need help finding your classroom or your teacher's name, please enter from the front of the building and allow staff members there to assist you. We do ask, however, that you drop them off, snap a quick picture and exit the building. We do try to get students started into their day quickly so that they make the transition with few or no tears.
Starting Monday, August 19 - Parents will be required to check in at the front desk with your id in order to walk your child to class.
On Tuesday, September 3, parents will not be allowed to walk students back to class. We will have plenty of support down the hallways to ensure your child gets to the appropriate location. This helps your child establish routine and be ready to learn as they enter the building.
Make sure that you communicate with the teacher about transportation for the first day, week, and rest of the year. The more consistent you are with transportation home, the better for your child so that there is no confusion. We do our best to be 100% in transportation home, but with frequently changing, a misunderstanding could occur.
First day paperwork will be sent home with your child to give you some specific information about our school. Please take time to review all the paperwork, sign and return anything that needs to be returned by Friday. We appreciate your assistance in this matter.
NEAT Club (Never Ever Absent or Tardy)
Morning and afternoon car rider is always busy the first few days. The earlier you arrive, the quicker you will be get in and out. Our front doors will open at 7:50 a.m. daily. Please follow the car rider line pictures below for both the morning and afternoon. This will help keep us backed up off the freeway and moving at a quicker pace. Just like everything, the first few days of car rider are long. Within a few weeks, we usually complete car rider line no longer than 3:30 p.m.
Afternoon car rider parents must stay in their cars and follow the line. Parents are not allowed to walk up and retrieve children from the front doors. This causes a safety issue for all.
BUS RIDER SIGNS - All PK and Kinder parents will be required to have a Bus Rider sign (much like car rider sign) to retrieve your child from the bus. If you do not have one, please pick one up on the first day of school from your child's teacher or request one be sent home with your child. Any adult with the sign will then be allowed to retrieve your child off the bus.
WALKERS - Remember that in order to be a walker from school you must live in the area that does not receive transportation, the one mile no bus radius. You will receive a letter the first day that will need to be signed and returned outlining our policy for our walkers. Please take a minute to review that, sign it and return it. Also in the letter will be a code for you to use if you wish to receive text messages through Remind 101 in the event of inclement weather.
