MORNING ARRIVAL & GYM TIME
There is no direct supervision of children in the school before 8 am. UNLESS YOU HAVE CHECKED WITH MRS. MATETICH, please do not drop off children before 8 am. Our gym teacher will open the gym doors at 8 am for children to play in the gym before school begins. We love to have parents there as well to watch the kids play. You are welcome-and can earn service hours! Please contact our school office if you can help out. Thank you!
AT HOME WITH OUR FAITH
Enclosed in this envelope is a sample of a monthly publication that we will purchase for your family and send home each month. It is a GREAT resource, but we will only order and pay for a subscription for your family upon request. Please return this form to our office if you are interested in receiving this publication.
SAFETY AT SCHOOL
We have a security system at both the front doors and the SAC door. After 8:35, the front doors will be locked. Please press the buzzer and wait for Mrs. Maturi to release the lock. Listen for the click and then come in!
All students receive instruction in bus safety both in the classroom and in school buses brought to our school by the ISD # 318 Transportation Department during September.
We will conduct our first fire drill and lockdown drill during September. Throughout the year, we conduct five of each as well as a tornado drill.
We Love Notes and Phone Messages!
Please send a note to let your child’s teacher and the office know if you need to take them from school during the day. Unless we hear from you, if your child is not picked up by 3:10, we will ask them to go to SAC. If your child is sick and will be absent, please call our office (326-6232). You can leave a message even in the middle of the night. If we do not receive a call from you on a day your child is not in school, we need to contact you.
We ask that you make appointments for children outside of school hours whenever possible. Children will be called down to the office upon your arrival at the school office to minimize the time they will be gone from class. Thank you for working with us on these procedures.
These instructors send home information about the content of their classes on a regular basis. Please keep these letters handy to help your child in completing assignments in these classes. Information can also be found under the Classrooms heading on our school website.
