Week of September 7th-September 11th, 2015

From the Eagle's Nest!

Dear Families,

What a great first week of school! Although we had many new things happening, I am happy to report that things moved as smoothly as could be! Our children did a fantastic job learning new routines for school!


Our pick-up and drop-off procedures for parents and buses took a little bit more time then they normally will, but it was needed in order to make sure everyone got where they needed to be! Thank you all for your patience!


We will be making a slight change to our PICK-UP procedures. Please read below for our new procedures which will start on Wednesday, September 9.


Have a wonderful week!


Thanks,

Mrs. Nelson

Please mark your calendars!

Upcoming Dates:

NEW Pick-Up Procedures for 4K students!

For the safety of our students, and a more organized dismissal procedure, we will be starting the following procedure on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9th:


DOOR #5 (door near the playground on Franklin Ave.) will be for the dismissal of

Mrs. Miller's and Mrs. Martine's classes. These doors will be opened up by the teachers at 11:00/2:45 dismissal. As you approach the door, your child's teacher will call for your child and have them come out of the door to meet you. Mrs. Miller's class will be dismissed from the right door and Mrs. Martine's class will be dismissed from the left door (as you look at the doors).


DOOR #1 (door near the office on Franklin Ave.) will be for the dismissal of

Mrs. Baumler's and Mrs. Hall's classes. These doors will be opened up by the teachers at 11:00/2:45 dismissal. As you approach the door, your child's teacher will call for your child and have them come out of the door to meet you. Mrs. Baumler's class will be dismissed from the right door and Mrs. Hall's class will be dismissed from the left door (as you look at the doors).


Parents that need to visit the office can let the teacher know as they get to the door or they can come early and buzz in at the door off of the parking lot.


Early Childhood Special Education and Preschool Phonology students will continue to be dismissed from the main hallway. Please proceed through the doors off of the parking lot.


We will also continue to take our bus students out of the doors by the parking lot.


Thank you for your assistance as we continue to find the best ways to manage our arrival/dismissal procedures.

Student Absence Procedures (Washington and A Child's Imagination)

If your child is going to be absent from school, please make sure you call Mrs. Calkins, in our main office, at 751-6990. Student absences should not be called in to your child's teacher. We are required, by the state, to record reasons for absences. Please assist us in making sure we are recording the proper information by following our call in procedure.


  1. Call Mrs. Calkins in our main office at 751-6990
  2. If she does not answer, please utilize her voice mail and leave your child's name, child's teacher, and SPECIFIC REASON for absence (fever, stomach ache, etc). Mrs. Calkins will inform the teacher of this absence.
