Principal's Corner

 

 

 

 

Dear Parents,

 

We are off and running with a new school year!  I had the greatest pleasure meeting so many families during registration and Open House.  Each day I meet someone new. I have grown to love this school in the short time I have been here.  As most of you know, Mrs. Bailey, the school principal, is currently out on leave.  She misses you and wishes she could be here to start the year.  While she is gone, I will be working hard to serve our students, staff, and families.  The Spring HIll Staff has put in countless additional hours before and after school and weekends preparing for your children.  Now that students have arrived, the hard work continues.  

 

It is a wonderful experience to walk the halls of this building and see the magic taking place in our classrooms.  Students are engaged in the content.  The learning has begun!  We have high expectations for student safety, respect for others, and being responsible citizens of our school and community.   These expectations are modeled by our staff and students throughout each day.  

 

Communication between home and school is valued by our staff.  One way that we can communicate with you is by posting grades in Zangle.  You should be able to view grades for assignments soon.  Please make sure you know your parent password to view student grades throughout the year.  If ever you have a concern or you want to reach your child’s teacher you can call or send an email. The teacher will return calls when they are not with students.  Our teachers appreciate regular communication with parents.   Many forms of communication will be paperless this year.  Registration was online, grades will be posted online and report cards will be online.  Paper forms can always be requested.  Our monthly newsletter and calendar of events will be posted to our website.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Wendy Zorea

Acting Principal

Traffic Reminders

The bus loop is reserved for buses only. Parent drivers may pull into the parking lot and park or they may wait in their car until they are loaded in the student loading area. Staff are on duty to help safely load students on the right side of the car only. Please watch for the crossing guards and all signage in the area. Please do not use your cell phones while in the loading zone. Student safety is our utmost concern. 

Attendance

Frequent absences, tardies and being excused early are disruptive to an entire class.  We are aware that family emergencies do occur; however, teachers are reviewing homework and preparing students to go home between 3-3:30 p.m.  If after-school changes or reminders need to be made, a phone call earlier in the day would be greatly appreciated.  Also, throughout the year, if any of your contact information (phone #’s, addresses) changes, please contact the school office, at 742-5450, so we can update our records for the safety of your children.

TARDIES/ABSENCES:  Students arriving late need to sign in at the office and get an “orange” slip to give to their teacher.  Classes begin at 9:00 a.m. and if students are not in their rooms they are considered tardy.  Please call the office by 9:30 a.m. to report your child’s absence on our attendance line, 742-5467.

STUDENTS ARRIVING EARLY:  Students should not arrive to school before 8:45 a.m. as there is no supervision before this time.

VISITORS:  When coming to the school to volunteer or visit a child’s classroom, sign IN & OUT at the front office and wear a visitor sticker!  This is for safety purposes in the event of an emergency as well as the safety of our students.  We check these lists to make sure everyone is accounted for when we do emergency drills of any kind.
