Click for larger imageWelcome, Winter - I want to begin by thanking all of the parents and guardians for working with us on the dismissal procedure. While I recognize that change is difficult and takes time, we are pleased that the dismissal process is beginning to go more smoothly. The last student is loading in the car between 3:16 and 3:18 which is just 6-8 minutes after the bell rings. We are working on keeping students and parents safer by using the pick-up lane. Please know that the lot is a PICK-UP ONLY lot. Parents should drive through the pick-up line and continue moving forward. Your child will load from the middle lane -- pick-up zone. If your child is a bus student and you would like him/her to begin riding the bus, please contact the bus garage (362-1023) to get the pick up time. Please also call and inform the school (362-1823). If you have a kindergarten student and another student attending Handley, the older child should go to the front of the building and get the kindergarten student. Together they go to the pick-up lane. The ONLY parents that should be parking are those that have a KINDERGARTEN ONLY student. We have teachers in all areas in order to assist students and ensure their safety. Having the students see parents and teachers work together in a positive manner and working together to follow procedures and rules is a great way to model for your child/children. Thank you, again.

The Wellness Committee met on April 27, 2011, and formulated a policy addressing treats for classroom celebrations. The policy states:

“For the safety of all children, all treats furnished for students, including birthday treats, must be commercially purchased. These treats should be kept simple and in a form that is easy to pass out to students in the class.”
