Principal's Message for 8/28/17

posted Aug 27, 2017, 12:37 PM by 311 Ees
Some important announcements for the week of August 28: First, please remember that students in grades 1-5 will have their first, full day of school on Monday. Kindergarten students will attend on either Monday or Tuesday from 8:30-12:30 and will begin their regular schedule on Wednesday. Second, throughout the year I plan to share interesting articles with parents about education and child development. I will post links to all articles on our website and in the email version of this message should you be interested in reading them. This first article is about keeping children healthy and active. Enjoy! Third, some dismissal reminders. In an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff, please pay close attention to our procedures.
  • Be sure your children's teachers know how they will get home each day. If your plan changes at the last minute, please call the office and speak to someone. Do not rely on a late day email or voice message.
  • If your child is a bus rider, please note that for this week only, the buses will depart from Ephesus promptly at 2:30. This is about seven minutes earlier than usual. We appreciate your understanding that the extra time will allow our drivers to resolve any problems that may arise with the route.
  • We plan to dismiss walkers and car riders on a one-minute staggered schedule. This will allow them to travel through the halls safely, but should not affect your pick up time.
  • Please be sure that whomever picks up your children has identification. This is especially important during the first few weeks of school as we get to know our families better.
  • Do not use your cell phone to talk or text while driving on our campus. We appreciate you keeping all of our roadrunners safe!
Thank you for taking the time to read this message. Please follow Ephesus Elementary on Facebook and @EphesusElem on Twitter. Please also check out these volunteer opportunities. I am confident that we will have a successful year and I hope you have a great first week!
