In this week’s envelope, you’ll find information on:  Updated Parent Handbook, Transportation Forms, Updated Contact Information, Girl Scout Meeting Information, Calendar Items 


Parent Handbook and Family Directory 

Hard copies of the family directory will be coming home on September 12th. However, you can access a digital copy of the Parent Handbook 2019-2020 on the school’s webpage under Parent Resources–> Forms and Documents.   Parent Handbook 2019-2020 

Bus Riders, Walkers, and Bikers 

  1. Please fill this out if your child is riding the bus this year: Bus Rider Form.  So far, we have the following families riding the bus: 

Mornings only: Pilon, Brandt, Vargas, Aquino 

Afternoons only: Felish (We are still waiting on an afternoon driver.) 

Round-trip: Milligan, Newbold, Prosser, Miller 

  1. If your child will be walking or biking to/from school, please fill out Bikers/Walkers Form  so that we can have record of this for the office and for teachers to know who has permission to do so.

Traffic Loop reminders 

Remember that the speed limit is 5 MPH inside the traffic loop. Please help us to keep children safe.  

Also, please remember to enter the parking lot before and after school from the Virginia St. side of the school, and exit on the Kentucky St. (Bellingham H.S.) side of the school. This helps with flow of traffic, especially while construction is going on at the Hope House. 

This year students walking or riding their bikes are encouraged to leave the school through the gate to Cornwall behind the cross. 

Parent and Emergency Contact Data 

The system our school uses for tracking student data has recently changed the way contacts are managed.  Some of this information didn’t transfer into the new system, so we want to ensure that all parent and emergency contact information is accurate.  We understand this may feel redundant to the paperwork packet just completed for the new school year, but please be assured our intention is only to safeguard your child’s information and be able to reach out in the event of an emergency. 

  • In your child’s physical envelope, you’ll find their Student Profile page 
  • If you need to make a change, please cross out the existing information and write in the correction 
  • If all data on the sheet is accurate, please write NO CHANGES on the form 
  • All forms should be returned to school office by Friday, August 30th 

Thank you for your assistance!
