I will be sending out a weekly electronic newsletter for all parents this year. Additionally, I will continue to have a Principal Blog. Please sign up for BOTH the newsletter and blog by going to this link and entering your email on the left side of the blog at: spoffordpondprincipalblog.com. Please note that by doing this you will receive emails from blog updates and a weekly electronic newsletter.
We have a school calendar (using Google) to list upcoming events and it also includes the “number” for each day of the week for our six-day schedule rotation. There is a link already set up on my blog—look under the tab “Calendars” at the top of the blog. There will also be a link on the school website under the “Quick Links”.
Open Office Hours for Parents
Additionally, I will be hosting open office hours for parents on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30-9:00 am. You do not need an appointment and may come directly into the school. Please just come to the front office to see me. This will help with any issue or concern that you may have. I will continue to have monthly “Principal Coffees” as well.
Arrival & Dismissal
Our morning arrival and afternoon dismissal procedures have remained the same. However, for dismissal, it is important that parents stay in the car line. Parents should not be parking and getting out of cars during dismissal to pick up their child. Walking through the line of cars is a safety-risk and can cause confusion with the car lines. I will be outside during dismissal to monitor student and car safety. We will work diligently to allow for a quick, efficient and safe dismissal.
