Proof of Residency

If you received a call or email about incomplete residency, it is probably because something wasn’t uploaded correctly.  Any proof of residency with a bill has to be dated May 20th or later.  Please resubmit in the portal or come by the office between 8:00-3:30.  If verification is incomplete, students will NOT show on the class assignments that will be posted on Tuesday @4:00 (3:00 for TK/Kinder).

Students will line up outside of their class on the first day of school.

On the first day of school grades 1-6 please plan to drop your child off at his/her class and then join us in the MPR for the School Year Kick-Off with PTA and administration from 8:20-9:00am.  Kindergarten and TK parents please join us in the MPR at 9:00!

Safety

Schools are a safe place but we need your help.  I know pickup and drop off can be frustrating times but remember we are moving 950 students every day and need to make sure they are safe!  Little eyes are always watching you, so make sure you are following the safety protocols and using the crosswalk at all times.  If you plan to walk your child onto the campus, you must park in an assigned spaces.  Please do not park in the pickup/drop off zone in front of the school.

  • Use crosswalk at all times
  • Do not park in the pickup/drop off zone
  • Do not park or drop off in the bus zone.  This area is only for busses.
  • Back gate will close at 8:15.  We will not hold it open.
  • Student cells phones must be turned off and put away upon entrance through the gates.  Adults are around and every class has a phone.
  • We will have a Monday Morning Assembly every Monday (or first day of the week) instead of the Friday morning assembly.
  • Everyone must have a picture ID to pick up a child from school.  If a family member or friend will be picking up your child, they need to be on the contact sheet and bring an ID.

First Day Flowers

A long standing tradition is to bring your teacher a flower on the first day of school.  Flowers have been used throughout history to convey all of our emotions and feelings, as well as symbolizing the beauty in starting a new year!  Each child can bring one flower to his/her teacher.  The flowers are then put together (just like a class) to create a beautiful bouquet!
