We hope that you have had
a relaxing summer and are ready to start a new school year. Teachers have
worked hard all summer to prepare their classrooms and revise curriculum to
meet the needs of all students. We are excited to have the halls filled with
our students again!
Your child’s teacher
placement is included with this letter. We work very hard to compile class
lists. There are many factors that come into play when placing a student. Therefore,
we will not be making changes to class lists. If you have questions or concerns
regarding your child’s placement, do not hesitate to contact me directly.
Just a few reminders:
- Drop off is 8:45 a.m. in the cafeteria. Parents will
not be allowed to enter the building. Pre-k and kindergarten parents may enter
and walk students to their classes the
first week only.
- Pick up is at 3:25 p.m. in the cafeteria. The doors will not open until 3:20 p.m.
each day. We ask that everyone enters the cafeteria and an adult will be
sure that you are matched up with the child you are responsible for. We ask
that everyone exits quickly to avoid
congestion loading busses. Any student remaining in the cafeteria after 3:40 p.m. will go to latchkey.
There is a $2.00 an hour charge.
- Students will only be released to those that are
listed on their emergency card. If you have a change in dismissal scheduling it must be in writing.
- Please remember to clearly communicate in writing the
dismissal procedures for your child. It is important that the teacher and
student both know where they are going each day. Bus drivers will not drop students off to a house unless there is an
adult present. It is ideal to have a consistent schedule, however we
understand that family needs vary.
- If there is a change in dismissal it must be called in
to the greeter by 2:15 p.m. (9421).
We look forward to seeing
everyone at Parent-Student Orientation to kick off another great year at
Arcade. Enjoy the last days of summer. As always, thanks for sharing your
children with us.
