CAR RIDERS AND WALKERS

ARRIVAL

  • Car riders can be dropped off starting at 7:35 a.m. in the front driveway. This is for ALL students grades K-5. Please use the LANE closest to the sidewalk and have your child exit on the right side of the vehicle.


  • PRESCHOOL parents may use the inside lane nearest the flag pole. Please stay in your vehicle until a preschool staff member comes to your car to retrieve your child.


  • Walkers must use the "yellow brick road" or painted yellow lines that follows the footprint of the old building. They are to walk up the sidewalk and to the front door.


  • Please make sure your child (ren) is ready to exit the vehicle. We have a long line in the morning and we need to get kids out quickly and safely.

DISMISSAL

  • Kindergarten car riders are dismissed behind our building in the gravel parking lot. Please enter off Highland and form a line along the sidewalk. As you exit the parking lot, turn right and head down Reeder back to 97.


  • Students in grades 1-5 are dismissed in the front of the building. Again, please line up on the outside lane nearest the sidewalk.


  • PRESCHOOL parents may use the inside lane nearest the flag pole. Please stay in your vehicle until a preschool staff member comes to your car to drop off your child.


  • Walkers will be released first and will follow the "yellow brick road" to the intersection of College and Morgan. PLEASE do not pick up your child in the parking lot by our garage.

In order for our building to qualify for Title I funding, we need our families to complete the free and reduced lunch paperwork. Although school breakfast and lunch are free this year, your family may qualify to have your school fees waived.


Please call Miss Sally and request the paperwork. We will be happy to send it home with your child!

Parents are asked to pay school fees in August. Elementary fees for the school year have been set at $65.00 for each student; this includes a $15.00 technology fee. This is reduced to $55.00 if paid by September 30. A payment schedule can be arranged for families who may experience difficulties in paying all of the fees for their children at one time. Please see the building principal if you need to arrange a payment schedule. Fee waivers may be obtained for families who qualify for free lunches or who have children on Medicaid cards.

The Purple Star Award for military-friendly schools recognizes schools that show a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military.


Starting on October 13th we will be hosting a Purple Star support club for our children at Butler Elementary who have family members actively serving our country in the armed forces. We will meet the second Wednesday of every month after school until 4:00pm in Ms. Legron’s classroom. Students will be provided a snack. You may also pick up your child in the front of the building in our driveway at 4:00pm.
