PYTHONS OFF TO A GREAT START!

We are officially off and running. The start of the 22-23 school year could not have been any better! The energy in the building as experienced through parents, children, and staff has been so uplifiting. This is going to be a special and amazing year at Evergreen Mill. I just know it! Our biggest hitch so far has come on the transportation end of things at dismissal time. As many of you know, LCPS switched to a split elementary school schedule this year in part due to a shortage of bus drivers and attendants. Half of the LCPS elementary schools begin their day at 7:30 AM, the other half (like us) begin at 8:00 AM. Two of our drivers (buses 1819 & 817) have to dismiss students from early starting schools before arriving to EMES. We are still feeling out the actual arrival time at EMES for pick up of students on these two buses. On Friday, Bus 1819 arrived around 2:55 and 817 at 3:10. We will monitor this over the next few days. All other buses dismiss promptly at 2:50 from EMES. I do understand that the Stopfinder app was not working over the first few days. This app, once up and running, will allow you to track your child's bus and ETA in the morning and afternoon. See the flyer below for more details. Lastly, don't forget to add money to your child's meal account using the Titan App. See the flyer below. This will allow you to keep tabs on your child's balance, access daily menus, and stay up to date on new items including nutritional and allergy information.

Purchasing A Charger for your Child's Chromebook

As many of you now know, the Chromebook assigned to your child is used daily at school and will be your child's educational lifeline should they need to participate in asynchronous learning. If your child's charger is lost or damaged you may purchase a new one though our Online Service portal on our school website: http://lcps.org/evergreen. Should your child's charger be deemed to be defective, LCPS will replace this free of charge. Below is a video with step by step direction on how to use our new Online Service Portal. If you have any questions please reach out to jessica.cruz@lcps.org or cassandra.marra@lcps.org.


Here is a video you can watch if you need to purchase a new charger. The cost for a new charger is $20.00.
