Carpenter Families,

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Please read below for important information.  Have a great week, Chameleons!


Afternoon Carpool:

We have successfully made changes to our carpool, and the line is moving much quicker! With tracks 1,2, & 3 in, we were clearing the car line around 3:53.  We know that it will take a bit longer with track 4 coming back tomorrow- but not by much!  If you have not requested a carpool tag- please do so by clicking the link on the front page of our Carpenter website. 

We realize that sometimes your family’s plans change for how you will pick up your child in the afternoon.  However, are teachers are busy teaching and often don’t have time to check their phones or email after 12:30 until dismissal is already occurring.  Therefore, if you have a change in pick up for your child, and it is after 12:30, please call the main office; they will get a message to the child’s classroom.  Thank you!


Morning Arrival:

We want to make sure that all our students enter the building safely.  If you are driving your child to school, please use the carpool lane.  Please do not park your car and walk the child across carpool.  It is dangerous and not following procedures.  The only families who are allowed to do this are pre-school and ECS.  Please follow these guidelines so that everyone can be safe.
