A note from the Principals...
Monday is a big day!
We will be welcoming our last group to arrive - Kingergarten!
There will be a special photo op available near the front entrance, so please feel free to park and capture that special memory. Use the left lane when turning off City Park Drive to access the parking lot. Staff will be there to assist every step of the way!
The solar eclipse will also shake things up a bit. Parents have two options:
1. Write a note and pick up your child at 11:30. We will do a mass dismissal, so please wait outside and all students will be released. Note: This is not an early dismissal day. Buses will not run early. All students with a note will be excused. Leaving early will not effect perfect attendance.
2. Allow your students to remain at school. We DO NOT have protective eye wear for all students. A few classes do have approved glasses and sent home a permission slip asking parents to sign in order for your child to participate outside viewing. Most classes are planning to stay inside and utilize the option of viewing live streaming via the internet. If your child did not bring home a permission slip, that means the class is not viewing the eclipse from outside.
Please note, the peak of the eclipse coincides directly with our dismissal time. Talk to you child about the dangers of looking directly at the sun. This includes those students looking out the windows on their bus ride home.
