A few reminders...

*Drop off/pick up continues to improve. Please remember these things to help keep everyone safe and to expedite the process.

1. Stay all the way over to the right when waiting in line. This helps our busses when arriving in the morning.

2. Please continue to pull all the way forward, even when waiting outside of the drop off

zone. We want to keep that line as short as possible.

3. Please do not start lining up too early. Drop off begins at 8:40 a.m. If your child

would like to eat breakfast at school, please pull forward in the outer left lane to be let in the cafeteria at 8:35)

4. End of day dismissal is 3:45 p.m. Lining up before 3:30 causes traffic congestion. Please consider allowing our younger families (K-2) to get their earlier. Families with siblings and children in grades can arrive closer to 3:50.

*Please label your child's items, such as lunch boxes, jackets, sweatshirts, etc. This will help us return items if lost.

*We still have some library books visiting homes since March. Please take a moment to see if you have any that can be returned to school.

*Michigan weather is ever changing. We do go outside every day, so please be sure to send appropriate outdoor wear with your child.

*Did you know we have a PaperGator in our back parking lot? This is a great way to support our PTO and Emmons Lake Elementary. Recycling materials raises money for our school and is a great way to be eco-responsible! Items that can go in the bin are newsprint, catalogs/magazines, office/school papers, hard or soft covered books.
