As spring is doing its best to join us, we have experienced several March snowfalls. Thus, it is very important that we ensure the children are properly prepared for the variable weather. Of course, you should be ready for all weather issues as well in your travels to and from our schools.
I have seen the morning procedures at each school and while you have been extremely attentive to the process in place, some parents are rushing to get to their morning destinations. I ask that you remember that we have small children trying to get into the schools and your attention must be on your surroundings at all times.
Remember: pull all the way up as you begin the dropoff process and be very careful pulling back out of the queque- we do not want to see any incidents occur that could be avoided if we slow down just a bit!!
At the end of the day, PLEASE park your car properly and legally! The security team is working with the local Police Department to look at ways to increase the areas you may have available to park.
Lastly, you will continue to see new faces as part of the security team as I continue to enhance our security environment, so be sure to say hello and introduce yourself to each one of YOUR security team.
Thank you for your continued support for our schools; the success we enjoy on behalf of your children is due in no small part to your dedication to working with us!
Bring on SPRING!
