Meet Your Teacher
It was wonderful to welcome students during Meet Your Teacher this Friday!  Students were excited to visit their new classroom, drop off their school supplies and learn more about their new teacher and classmates!  We thank our PTO for organizing and distributing Edukits!   If you were unable to attend on Friday or forgot to submit your emergency dismissal and student directory forms, please print the attachments and send them to school with your child on Monday.  We ask that parents bring all medications to the office with the attached medical release form.

Drop Off & Pick Up Reminders
During the first week of school all teachers will meet their students at their classroom line designated by an orange cone and name sign on either the front black top (grades K-3) or the back playground (grades 4 & 5).  Click here for specific drop off and pick up locations. 

Adults will also be available to assist your child at the rolling drop off loop, which is only located at the front of the building.  Here are a few important safety reminders regarding our parking loop.  Your cooperation is appreciated!

·      Students should be dropped off and picked up using the front car loop only.
·      Parents need to remain in their cars while staff assists students.
·      Students should exit their cars curbside.
·      Parents should pull all the way forward to the front of the line.
·      Parents should not pull around cars in the line or cut through the parking lot.

At dismissal all students exit the building through the same doors they entered.  For safety reasons, all students who are picked up in the car loop wait by the wooden fence near the front playground.

Golden Nuggets
