Frederiksen Elementary School
Home of the Panthers!
Dear Frederiksen Families,
We have such amazing students and families here at Frederiksen! Thank you for the support of our annual Boosterthon program (see results below), for your donation of gently used costumes for our first ever Costume Swap, for our yummy staff brunch last week, and for the donations coming in for the Trunk-or-Treat event that will be happening at the end of the month. We will be reinstating our Halloween Parade this year to allow families who would like to attend the event to come view and take photos. The parade will take place right after school gets started on the morning of October 31st. More information will come home about the parade during the last week in October.
Please note that we will be having a number of safety drills during the later half of next week to mark the Great Earthquake ShakeOut and to practice our procedures during a possible shelter in place or lockdown. Our staff will be undergoing Active Shooter Training provided by the Dublin Police Department and Alameda County during our October staff meeting and we will continue to refine our practices to ensure we are updated on the most effective and efficient safety procedures possible for our site.
Finally, please continue to follow all safe driving, drop-off, and pick-up procedures in our small parking lot. Students are to exit and enter the vehicle on the passenger side and be prepared once your car comes to a complete stop. There are many students coming and going on the sidewalk during the same timeframe and we need to watch our surroundings carefully and proceed slowly and cautiously. Reminder: there is no left turn out of the parking lot so plan accordingly. You may have noticed the police here to assist with these procedures recently. If we all follow the same procedures, the drop-off and pick-up will go smoothly. Thank you in advance for adhering to these safe practices.
With Panther Pride,
PFC Meeting Thursday, October 13th
Meeting ID: 964 0106 7279
We hope to see you there!
