Weekly Update 7/22/22

Dear Moore Square families,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We can't wait to have our students back in the building on Monday. This is our weekly family message, containing reminders and announcements, that is typically sent every Friday around 5:00 pm via email from School Messenger. If you did not read our welcome letter, you can view that here


  • Carpool Procedures

Our carpool line wraps around the city block we are located on. Students will get in and out of their vehicles on E Davie Street. For morning drop-off, if you are in line from the yellow fire hydrant, up to the breezeway, your student will need to exit onto the sidewalk. Students should remain in their cars and with their parents/guardians until our bell rings at 7:05 am. If you are unable to merge into the carpool line, please continue to circle the block until space is available. In the afternoon, cars are not allowed to park on E Martin St, as that is our bus lane. Typically, buses pull off around 2:25 pm, and then you may merge into that space. Please view our website for a map, depicting the carpool flow. Only families with special transportation tags are allowed to drop off and pick up in our main campus lot. We ask that you please give us grace and patience with transportation during the first few weeks of school. 


  • Walker Tags

If your student will be leaving campus as a walker in the afternoon, please fill out this form and return it to the front office or to Mrs. McGirt at When forms are received students will get a walkers tag for their bookbags to designate them as such. 


  • Early Release

Reminder that we will be dismissing students at 12:15 on Thursday, July 28th. 


  • Schedules
    • Last-minute changes are always necessary, and some schedules were updated today due to technical glitches that we discovered during Mountain Lion Climb.
    • Do you have a missing class (“schedule hole”) or other conflicts? Please use this Course Request Change Form ASAP to let our counselors know. Stations will be available Monday to help support students with schedule changes. 


  • School Meals 
    • Free/Reduced lunch application & information is here
