8/21 First Day of School (1st-5th grade)
Dear Young Families,
August 21 is the first day of school for 1st-5th grade students. We are excited to have our building full of laughing and smiling children who are excited to be back at school exploring and learning.
On August 21 the first bell rings at 8:50 am and the day begins at 9:05 am. Please remember that students need to be in the classroom by 9:05 am to be considered on time. We will follow normal arrival and dismissal procedures on August 21 for our 1st-5th grade students. The school day ends at 3:35 pm.
On August 21, kindergarten students and their family will participate in an hour long orientation at 10:00 am or 1:30 pm.
On August 21 students will enter the building on their own. Staff members will be posted around the building to help direct students to their classrooms. If you have not done so, please remember to send the arrival/dismissal form to school with your child so that the classroom teacher knows how your child is to go home each day. Please review with your child how they are to get home everyday. Please find attached the arrival/dismissal form as well as the map of dismissal routes.
Student Drop off & Pick up
Parents who are driving their children to school are to use the car-line by the staff parking lot. The front circle parking lot is closed at arrival and dismissal so that we can safely unload and load students off and on the buses. The front circle drive is closed to parents from 8:45 am – 9:05 am and from 3:15 pm – 3:50 pm every day.
If you park across the street off of school property, please note that parents need to walk their child back and forth at the crosswalk on Asbury/Liberty. Due to the increased traffic from buses, day care vans, and cars, Asbury is very busy with motor vehicles before and after school. Please do not jaywalk as it is difficult for buses and other vehicles to clearly see students and adults who are not using the crosswalk which is the safest way to cross the street. The crosswalk is the safest way to cross Asbury.
Hot Lunch Menu: Organic Life provides hot lunch everyday. Here is the link to the hot lunch menu.
Breakfast Menu: Students can purchase breakfast before school from Organic Life.
We look forward to seeing everyone in place tomorrow. Please contact the school with any questions that you may have.
