Thank You for a Great First Trimester!

Hello Coyote Family!

 

As I write this, we celebrate reaching the end of the first trimester! How time flies. Report cards will be sent home next Friday, November 7th. So, enjoy the pause that the weekend provides and be ready to begin the second trimester Monday!

 

At this point in the year, I also want to pause and thank you, our wonderfully supportive parents and guardians of our 780 students! Thank you for making attendance and punctuality a priority in your home. We have been averaging over 97% attendance rates each month but the goal is 98% so please keep making it a priority in your family’s morning routine!

 

Also, thank you for your overwhelming support of our PTO by attending our 2nd Annual Monster Bash and fully participating in all that was made available. What a great night of fellowship as the Coyote Family came out to spend an evening together. Sorry if I scared you in my Old Hippy costume…one parent, after seeing me, quickly looked over in the direction of our police officers who attended, pleading for help with her eyes. That is until her daughter called out my name! Thank you PTO for your efforts over the past several months as you prepared for the event. Your sacrificial giving did not go unnoticed. And for anyone wanting to join the PTO ranks may I encourage you to step up and talk to them about how you can be involved. They need you!

 

Lastly, and very importantly, I need to make an urgent request. We need you to make sure that our office is informed any time that you have a change of address or telephone numbers; this includes your emergency contacts. We have had trouble reaching parents as the phone numbers are no longer valid. If we had an emergency, this outdated information means we could not contact you and you would not receive the Connect Ed messages. So, if your information has changed, please notify our office asap with the correct info.

 

With that in mind, we are sending home a flier with report card and are encouraging every parent to sign up with a new Blackboard MyConnect App. From that mobile app you can manage your information and add numbers and receive text messages with important information, especially emergency notices. As student safety and timely information to our parents is a priority, I am hoping for 100% participation by our families. Please help us reach that goal!

 

Thanks as always!

Kinder Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

Kinder Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

Information for Parents

The following changes are being explained at Back to School night and being put into place on Thursday, August 22nd. The reason for the changes is student safety; a priority for us! Having heard the concerns from parents, and having the drop off and pick up area so close to the street, we are choosing to have the kindergarten children dropped off at the gate to the playground, led inside, and supervised by teachers in the fenced in area immediately upon their arrival. For the same reason, we are also now having students picked up from their classrooms inside the building instead of releasing them from the grass area. Thank you for your understanding and support as we seek to ensure the safety of all our students.

Early Birds: Drop Off 8:10- 8:25am (Thank you for being on time!)

                Parents may drop off their students at the gate by the playground. Students will be let in where they will stay with their classmates under the supervision of our teachers. It is at drop off that we say to our wonderful parents, “Thank you! We will see you at pick up time!”

                In order to have instruction begin on time at 8:30am, we need to close the gate at 8:25am. It is at this time that teachers will take their students to their classes and begin their morning activities.

 If you arrive at or after 8:25, please take your student around to the office where they will be allowed through the hallway doors to their class (as we are nearing the end of the third week of school your child knows where they are going. If not a staff member will escort them to class).

If you arrive after 8:30am, when you arrive in the office we ask that you sign in while we give your child a late pass to class. They will then be allowed in the hallway to go to class.

 Early Birds: Pick Up 12:30pm

                At approximately 12:30 (when the students are back in their classrooms from lunch) proctors will open the gate by the playground (for the students in Ms. Calamusa’s and Ms. Water’s classes) and the door to the back of the quad (for the students in Ms. Armstrong’s, Ms. Gumamit’s, and Ms. Kindell’s classes) to allow parents to line up by their child’s classroom.

No strollers, please, as this will create too much congestion; another safety concern. If you bring a stroller, please carry your child inside as you pick up your kinder, leaving your stroller outside the gate or door. Thanks.

                Teachers will have their Early Birds in a line inside the classroom and ready to be released to their parents one by one while the Late Birds are involved in an activity utilizing the SMART Board on the carpet. It is important that this dismissal goes as quickly and as safely possible in order to not lose instruction time with our Late Birds. This is not the time for parent/teacher conferences, even if brief. Thank you for helping us as we seek to protect our instruction time. Every minute is important.

                For this reason also, at 12:35pm, the gate and door will be closed and students who have not been picked up will be escorted to the office to wait for their parents, allowing our teachers to begin their afternoon session with their Late Birds. So, if you arrive at or after 12:35, please pick up your children from the office. Thank you.

 

Late Birds: Drop Off 10:10- 10:30am (Thanks for being on time)

                Parents may drop off their students at the gate by the playground. Students will be let in where they will stay with their classmates under the supervision of our proctors. It is at drop off that we say to our wonderful parents, “Thank you! We will see you at pick up time!”

                In order to have instruction begin on time at 10:35am, we need to close the gate at 10:30am. It is at this time that proctors will take the students to their classes and begin their morning activities.

 If you arrive after 10:30am, please take your student around to the office where they will be allowed through the hallway doors to their class (as we are nearing the end of the third week of school your child knows where they are going. If not a staff member will escort them to class).

If you arrive after 10:35am, when you arrive in the office we ask that you sign in while we give your child a late pass to class. They will then be allowed in the hallway to go to class.

Late Birds: Pick Up 2:35pm

                At 2:35, Teachers will take their students into the playground (Ms. Calamusa and Ms. Waters) and courtyard (Ms. Armstrong, Ms. Gumamit, and Ms. Kindell) for release to parents. At this time also the gate to the playground and the back door to the courtyard will be opened for parents to come in and get their children.

                No strollers, please, as this will create too much congestion; another safety concern. If you bring a stroller, please carry your child inside as you pick up your kinder, leaving your stroller outside the gate or door. Thanks.

 

As always we thank you for your understanding and support as we ensure the safety of all of our students.
