Read below for important information!


Meadow View Mustang Families,


Here are some important dates to remember.



  • On Monday, Oct. 19, students in grades 2nd and 3rd will return 4 days a week.




  • Students in grades 4th & 5th will return to school 4 days a week starting on November 2nd.




  • ALL Students will return to face to face instruction 5 days a week starting November 30th.




  • Just a reminder that when both cohorts return to face-to-face learning at the same time, staff will still be screening students during our a.m. drop off.




  • Therefore, Due to the potential increase of traffic during our morning drop-off, we may need to reroute the car pattern to elevate traffic overflowing onto Pony Farm and or Fire Tower road.



  • Staff members will be assisting with rerouting traffic in the mornings if needed. At this point, we will not make any afternoon changes during dismissal unless we notice that traffic starts to back up.



If you have any questions, please contact the school or visit one of our social media sites.


We will be conducting a required lockdown drill with our Cohort A students on Oct. 12th and with our Cohort B students on Oct. 15th.


Our yearly Candy Man fundraiser kicks off on Oct. 19th through November 9th. More information will be sent home with the students soon.


Report Cards will be sent home with students on Oct. 22nd.


Thank you for your support!


As Mustangs we will RISE UP, start fresh and see the bright opportunity in each new day! Although things will be a little different, we can't wait to see our students back on campus!

Remember Meadow View families…You’re Awesome! You’re the Best! You Rock!


Sincerely,


Kelly J. Clarke, Principal

Meadow View Elementary Welcome 2020

Dismissal Process / Hand-to-Hand and Bus

Due to the new guidelines, we have been instructed to stagger our dismissal and to use multiple exits. To accommodate these guidelines, here is our Car pick-up process this year. Buses will be loaded after the car pick-ups.



Your pick-up number card needs to be clearly visible in your window when you come to pick up your child from school. Everyone has a unique number assigned in case your child is ever a pick-up. You will be asked to provide identification if you don’t have the pick-up card we sent you. If you have lost or need a new pick-up card, please let your child's teacher know.


Please arrive at your assigned time to ensure a smooth process. If you have students in multiple grades, please pick up all of your children at the younger student’s assigned time/place.


3:15:


  • Kindergarten: (pick-up line on the cafeteria side of the school- the same place as morning drop-off)


  • 1st – Grade: (pick-up line in front of the school)



3:30:


  • 2nd – Grade: (pick-up line on the cafeteria side of the school- the same place as morning drop-off)


  • 3rd – Grade: (pick-up line in front of the school)



3:45:


  • 4th – Grade: (pick-up line on the cafeteria side of the school- the same place as morning drop-off)


  • 5th – Grade: (pick-up line in front of the school)



Again,



  • Please arrive at your assigned time and location for pick-ups
  • Have your assigned number card visible in your car window
  • Older siblings will be picked up along at their younger sibling’s location/time


Thank you
