Summit - Up
Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Responsible.
Welcome back to school! It has been a great first week of school. This is an exciting time of the year as summer winds down and we continue to enjoy beautiful weather and transition into the school year. Thank you for all that our families have done to have our students ready for school.
Each and every Wednesday from the last day of school to the first day of school, Summit Street School opened with our teacher volunteers to provide summer reading book exchange. We hope you had fun and enjoyed your summer reading.
Please know that we are excited and ready to support your child in their transition to the next grade and all of the adventure and wonder that the year will bring. If at anytime you have questions or concerns, please know that we are happy to help you in the office, just stop by or call, my door is always open.
Walking Wednesday's -Starting September 4th
Friday folders are being sent home today to share important information with you. Typically these folders arrive home on a Friday and may include: student work samples along with other important notices. Students are expected to return this folder on the next school day. Please take a few minutes and read through everything that is in your child’s Friday folder.
Please go to the the EWSD District web page https://www.ewsd.org/Domain/4 and under“For Families” you will find the Parent/Student Handbook; please review the handbook. Within the handbook, you will find information of what to do if you do not want your child’s picture, or classroom/assembly video (their portion) posted on/in the following: blogs, on-line classroom projects, assembly pictures, etc.
Thank you for your cooperation in getting these forms back to us.
Pick Up and Drop Off
Our drop off and pick up parking lot is at Holy Family and we have an additional parking lot on School Street! Please do not drop off in front of Summit Street School as it is a bus lane during pick up and drop off. Children enter the school from the playground each morning at 7:45 a.m.
Adult supervision is available on the playground by 7:30 a.m. Please do not drop your child off before that time.
At 2:40, kindergarten children and afternoon PK students are dismissed out back directly to parents/guardians. At 2:45 p.m., children in grades 1-3 are delivered to the playground by their teachers for dismissal and it is expected that all children will be picked up at this time. Please be sure we know your child's after school plan and any busing changes. Pick up dismissal is out the back of the building and Kindergarten Village Kids, Edge and busing is out the front of the building.
Children who are walking/biking home without parents are asked to leave and walk/bike home right away to ensure they cross with a stationed crossing guard. Please discuss the plan for the end of the day with your child and the teacher.
