Dear Parents and Guardians,

I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2014-2015 school year. We have been working tirelessly throughout this summer to make sure the building is clean and ready for students to arrive on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.  It is my honor and privilege to have been selected as your Principal, and I look forward to embracing the challenges ahead with our dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of our supportive families and community members.

The learning years at the primary-elementary level are critical in building the foundation for our students’ eventual college and career readiness, and we will continue to instruct to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. We will also maintain our “Healthy School” status by continuing to encourage healthy foods and promote physical activities.

Our school hours are 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Please note the following procedures:

Morning Arrival: Students may enter the building as early as 8:45 a.m. It is expected that students will arrive prior to 9:00 a.m. to begin the school day. If you are driving your child to school, please obey the traffic laws on County Line Road and ensure that you and your child use the designated crosswalks and sidewalks for your safety.

Afternoon Dismissal: Student dismissal begins at 2:45 p.m. with our walkers. If your child is a walker, you may report to the cafeteria to sign him/her out between 2:45 and 3:00. Students who take the bus will board between 3:00 and 3:10. If your child’s dismissal plans change, he/she must bring a written note to school that states the change before 3:00 p.m. that day.

Please read the additional important information that is included with this letter. I look forward to greeting you at our Back to School Night on Thursday, September 11, at 7:00 p.m.

Most sincerely,

Mr. Vincent Todisco
