Principal's Message


Our first week of school was a success! Students were engaged in many exciting learning activities. In order to see learning in action, please follow us on Twitter @PleasantUnionYR


Last week a number of essential forms went home with students. If you have not completed the following forms please do so ASAP. Thank you!

  • Bright Yellow Emergency Locator Card

  • Data Verification Form

  • Military Connected Form

  • Bus Rider Letter

  • Parent Student Handbook review and receipt form

  • Access to Portal-Access Form This form needs to be completed and returned to our data manager, Ms. Baginski. Once completed you will have the ability to update demographic information (phone numbers, email) and then be able to view your child's attendance, bus transportation status and bus stop.

Essential Information

Arrival

School doors open at 8:45 for students who are not enrolled in Before School Care. Our Safety Patrol leaders and school staff are on morning car duty until 9:10. Please walk your child into the school if you arrive at 9:10 or after. Students must be in their classrooms ready to start the day at 9:15.


Birthdays

Students love to be recognized on his/her birthday! Please contact your child's teacher if you plan on coming to school on that special day. Teachers have specific ways that they work with parents in the classroom and we do not have parties in the cafeteria. If food is brought it has to be "store bought" for safety reasons. Thank you for your help!


Carpool

This week new students to PUE will be in the carpool line. There are Kindergarten students in car seats that have to be taken out of cars. Please be patient as these families and students learn how to go through carpool and how to get in and out safely. Thank you for your cooperation. In addition, remember not to form a "double" line in carpool in the afternoon until 3:15. This is for safety and emergency responder access. Please keep your carpool tag displayed all the way through the line so that we can call out numbers for students waiting on the sidewalk.


Lunch Procedures

Due to having more classes this year, confidentiality, and safety we are asking that parents who come to eat with their child plan to eat with his/her child and one friend in the main hallway. Fridays are typically crowded. Please consider planning your lunch visit for another day. We also ask that you supervise the children with you and not to post pictures of other children to social media. Lastly, we ask that you do not move the large chairs around in the front hallway, as it damages the floor.
