Arrival & Dismissal
Arrival - Please remember to use the left arrival lane if your child can exit the car quickly without any assistance. The right lane will be used for students who need assistance or will take a bit longer to exit their vehicle. Farley staff are on duty from 8:20 until 8:40. After 8:40, drop off will be at the flagpole and students will enter the front doors.
Dismissal - We begin car rider dismissal at 3:40. Thanks to parents having car numbers clearly displayed and following our car rider line procedures, we have decreased the time needed to get all students safely in their cars. That translates to more instructional time!
From the Library
September Book Challenge (all grades)
20 Book Challenge (3rd-6th)
Students that choose to participate in grades 3-6 fill out a form about each book that they read that is at least 50 pages. It can be any book that meets the 50 page requirement. The tracker sheet is optional. Students should use complete sentences with capitals and periods when filling out the form. Students that complete the challenge are recognized at the monthly assembly and are invited to a party at the end of the school year.
You may choose to introduce this to your child now, or wait until their next library class. Students will be learning about this opportunity over the next two weeks in the library. Students that went to Farley last year, may already know about the 20 book challenge (except for 3rd grade).
School Hours: 8:45-3:45
Doors Open at 8:20
Breakfast Begins at 8:20
