Student Safety in the Mornings

From the Principal’s Blog:

In the student handbook, we encourage parents not to drop off students before 7:30 for safety reasons. We do not have personnel on duty until 7:30 am, therefore students dropped off are left unsupervised. I was just made aware that several students are horse playing near the steps leading down to the Primary parking lot. I feel compelled to inform parents of the steep drop-off on the other side of the wall. As you can see from the pictures below, should a student fall down the steps or off the edge of the wall, we could have a serious medical situation.

Your children are important to us and we want them arriving through our front doors at 7:30 safely. Please speak to your children about the dangers of this area and ways they can be safe.

School Holiday Monday

Image from http://freebies.about.com

School will be closed Monday, September 4th. Enjoy the time with your families celebrating Labor Day. Talk to your children about Labor Day and what it means.

Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September. It’s a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. The holiday credits the contributions of the working class to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Labor Day became an official national holiday in 1894. This holiday is usually celebrated with summer activities. Elementary teachers use this holiday to introduce the concept of Community Helpers to small children. Everyone plays a role or works a job that supports their community.

What role do you play in your community?
