Reminders from the Office 

Students Arriving Late to School:  We have an number of students arriving late for school.  Students are expected to be at school entering the building at 7:40 am when the first bell rings.  If your student arrives in the building after the second bell at 7:45 am, they must stop at the office to check in before going to class. 

Pick Up After School: For the safety of all students, please make sure that you are on time to pick up your child.  You should be at school when students dismiss at 2:45 pm.  If you are unable to be at school at 2:45 pm, you should make alternate arrangements for your child's pick up.  Please make sure that you keep a consistent routine and that your child knows where to meet you.   

Sending Cash to School:  Please remember to send the correct change with your student(s) when paying for Field Trips, Pictures, Fundraisers, etc.  Teachers do not have cash on hand in their classrooms to make change. 

Lost and Found: The Lost and Found items can be found in the Lobby as you enter through Door 1.  Please have your student check for any missing items.  All items will be donated on Wednesday, December 18th.


BRRRR...It's COLD outside!

With the weather being much cooler please make sure your child(ren) is dressed appropriately for school. Our district's guidelines are as follows:

  • Below 50 degrees-coat required
  • Between 50-60 degrees-Long sleeves needed
  • 61 degrees and over -students choice (shorts are allowed)


  • Boots, Snowpants and winter jackets are required to play on the snow.
  • Also remember hats, gloves and scarves for extra warmth.
  • Recesses will be outdoors unless the temperature is below 10 degrees or the wind chill is below zero.

Early Release Days

Please mark your calendars for the early dismissal dates this year.  The city bus does pick up on early dismissal days. School will dismiss at 12:30 on the following Wednesdays.  There are NO 4K or Early Childhood classes on Early Release Days:

  • December 11th
  • January 8th
  • February 12th
  • March 11th
  • April 8th
  • May 13th


Extra Change of Clothes

Please consider sending an extra change of clothes with you child to school. With the winter weather, the snow can soak through snow pants or get in boots.  Also, some kids have accidents and this will save the hassle of having to bring clothes to school during the day.


Pre-Approved Absences

Any absences that will be in excess of 2 days must have a Pre-approved Absence form filled out and approved PRIOR to the absence. Forms are available in the office.
