Updates for this week

Positivity Focus for the Week:  Spiral Review

Lost and Found:  Parents, our Lost and Found is filling up quickly.  If your child is missing any items such as coats, hats, gloves, scarves, or water bottles, then please stop by during arrivals to check Lost & Found.  You will need to sign in as a visitor between 8:45-9:15 to obtain permission to walk down to the cafeteria to check for any missing items.  All leftover Lost and Found items will be donated after Winter Break.

Late Bus Notification (Learning Lab):   Now, in addition to being notified via Twitter and Class Dojo, we will send out a School Messenger notification to alert families when buses arrive on campus over an hour after dismissal time.


Carpool:  During morning carpool, we begin receiving students at 8:45.  Please do not drop students off at the door prior to that time.  There are not any staff present prior to this time to supervise and monitor students.  It is not safe to do this.  In addition, all students need to be dropped off in the carpool line unless you are walking them up to the door.  For safety reasons, I appreciate you not dropping students off in the parking lot, or in the crosswalk areas for them to walk to the building.  The line moves quickly and is very efficient.

In addition, stay in the carpool line after your student is loaded.  We are noticing a higher number of cars cutting out of the line to drive around the car in front of them.  Again, due to safety, refrain from doing this and instead proceed forward directly after the car in front of you.  Afternoon carpool runs from 3:45-4:15.  All carpool students need to be picked up by 4:15 each afternoon.  As always, I appreciate your cooperation. 


Transportation Changes:  Any and all transportation change requests need to come through to our front office personnel and NOT directly to the classroom teacher.  We want to ensure that the change request is received and that your child gets home the way you intended.  Please reach out by calling the main office phone number at 919-694-8770 with ALL transportation change requests.


Winter Break:  Our last day for students this week is on Wednesday.  Winter Break begins Thursday, December 21st-Tuesday, January 2nd.  Students return to campus on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.
