Week 7 Message from our Principal, Ms. Limon

Rogers Family,


Can you believe it's the end of September?! October is around the corner and it's hard to believe how quickly the year is going. This week, on Wednesday, we close out our celebration of Attendance Awareness Month so students may dress up as their favorite school appropriate celebrity. Then, on Friday, students can wear their House color for our October House Meeting. All other days of the week are normal school uniform days.


Many of you have asked if we will be having our Fall Carnival this year since COVID protocols have not allowed visitors to the campus. Initially, we understood we would not be able to but district leadership has recently announced that some outdoor events will be allowed. We are submitting a proposal to seek approval from the district's COVID Committee. I will let you know as soon as I get a decision back. For anyone who was not able to make it to one of our Title I meetings, please see the recording of our Coffee with the Counselor/Title I Meeting below.


Remember to screen your students at home for COVID symptoms before sending them to school. If you have any questions, call our nurse, Ms. Herrington.


Let us know if we can support you in any way! We Are the Eagles, Watch Us Soar!

We Need Your Help!

The Office of Family Engagement has created survey in order to gather input about how we can best serve you. Our goal is 50 responses! THANK YOU!!

IMPORTANT!

The Church next door has reached out regarding our dismissal process. Ridgewood church hosts a Pre-K program that dismisses at 2:30 pm daily. PLEASE DO NOT park in the driveway leading into the church. It is a ONE-WAY drive so if you enter to park INSIDE the lot, you must exit on the other side.


We want to be respectful of the spaces that belong to our neighbors as they also dismiss at the same time.

Thank you SO much for your patience as we get through the construction!

We need your help for Carpool!

During construction, we have very limited space for parking and carpool. We need your help to keep our carpool lines moving safely.

  1. Make sure to stay in your car while in carpool. If you anticipate needing to get out of your car, please park on Lovers Lane.
  2. Please be patient about waiting in the carpool line. If you are finding that you are usually in a hurry every morning, then we ask you to add time to your morning routines.
  3. For afternoons, be aware that the school day technically ends at 3:15. We begin the dismissal process a bit early to ensure that all students are out by 3:15 with the younger students coming out earlier than older students. If you are picking up 3rd-5th students, please come right at 3:15 to give the other parents of only younger kids time to get through. That way you won't hold up the line waiting for your child to come out.
  4. Skipping people in line is not appropriate. We are a team and we want to model for our students what it looks like to treat others with respect.

Thank you so much for your help! If we operate as a community we can keep everyone safe and keep carpool moving efficiently. Construction will last through winter break so we appreciate your mindfulness and support.

*September is Attendance Awareness Month!

Celebrate with Dallas ISD during the month of September to promote attendance! See the flyer below for weekly dress up days (every Wednesday during the month of September) #ShowUpDallasISD
