Greetings to The Pride Families-
The 2015-2016 school year has started with many changes for The Pride of School 9!
Let's recap a few in the month of November:
We have been making many attempts to improve our arrival/dismissal procedures. We ask that you send your students to school on time daily. Breakfast begins at 8:15am and the instructional day starts @ 8:35am. It is imperative that you align yourself to these times. We are also asking that you remain behind the cones whenever we have an outdoor dismissal for grades PreK-6. When it is raining, snowing, et. al., PreK through 1st grades are housed in the Cafeteria. You should Enter and Exit through the Waring Place side of the building. Pre K -6 will enter onto the campus grounds daily by 3:10pm and the whistle is blown at 3:15pm. Finally, if you do not contact the Main Ofiice before 2:30pm daily, you will have to wait until the end of the school day to pick up your child.
We are asking that you stay aligned with your child's teacher regarding grades, homework, district and state assessments, and behavioral concerns. By doing so, you are demonstrating your concern for a positive home-school connection.
