Dear Seaside Families,
Welcome back everyone! We look forward to seeing you all very soon and having a successful 2014-2015 school year. Below please find a few reminders to help things move smoothly.
I remind you that we have a few students with severe peanut allergies. This requires all of us to be extra cautious. Discuss food sharing with your own child. We recommend that students do not share any food with friends or classmates to avoid health risks. The cafeteria will contain a peanut free table to accommodate those students with peanut allergies.
Car Signs: Please use a thick dark marker to make a sign with your child’s name or family last name and place it in the front passenger side of the windshield. This way, we can announce your car and hopefully get your child to your car faster in the valet line.
Drop off and pick up will continue in the manner it did last year. Fourth and fifth grade students should be dropped off in front of their rooms on Sharynne Lane. First through third students can be dropped off in the valet area front parking lot. As always, students should be ready to make a quick exit with backpacks in hand.
Pick up after school is a bit trickier. Do not wait in the parking lot before school is dismissed to pick up your child. Older students can be picked up in front of the 4th/5th grade rooms. 1st – 2nd can be picked up in the valet area front parking lot. 3rd grade can be picked up from either location. You may also retrieve your child from the back gate on Reynolds Road. Ask your child to come promptly to the valet area and actively look for your car and be ready to quickly get into the car.
Parent parking is located on the street. By parking on the street, you will help our teachers and paraprofessionals get to work on time.
Enter the campus on foot, away from the parking lot and the driveway entrance and exit. Please do not cross through the parking lot. This is dangerous. We teach children by what we do; let’s provide a good model.
Class assignments can be retrieved after 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 3 in front of the cafeteria. PTA will be present selling spirit wear, handing out popsicles to students and signing up volunteers. You can also provide your Direct Donation at that time.
We will have a great year. The children flourish and grow with the instructional support and loving guidance of us all.
