TEACHER OF THE MONTH FOR SEPTEMBER: Mr. Olson
Middle School ID policy Update:
Middle school students are expected to have their school issued ID on around their necks during the school day.
Last year if a student lost their ID the first replacement was $2.00 and every other ID was $5.00 to replace. Students were required to bring in cash to receive a replacement ID.
The revised policy - the first ID lost will be replaced for free and every other ID lost after will be $5.00. Also, students will not be required to bring in cash as the lost ID will be directly billed into the student's account. When this occurs, you will receive a phone call about the charge. If you have any questions about this revision please contact Sam Turner: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pick-up and Drop-off Procedure
(School start and end times: 8:20-3:25)
- Take your time and be careful
- Park your vehicle away from the school and walk if no parking is available
- Students to cross streets only at marked crosswalks
- Be respectful of students, staff, and other parents
- Please respect our neighbors, do not block driveways
- Follow all posted traffic signs
- Do not park in crosswalks
- Park vehicle properly before loading or unloading students
- Do not double park your vehicle
- NO U-Turns
You will notice large, orange traffic cones in the drop-off circles on both the east and west sides of the building. The cones are there to assist those dropping off students by the curbs. Vehicles are to remain in a single file line and pull up as far as they can to maximize the amount of sidewalk space used for drop-offs.
On the WEST side of the building we request that you follow the car in front of you that will pull all away around to the end of the soccer goal.
On the EAST side of the building we request that you follow the car in front of you that will pull all away around to the crosswalk before they stop.
If your student(s) are unable to unload in less than 30 seconds, please drop them off in the parking lot closest to the crosswalk so the crossing guard can assist them across the driveway.
If you have students in multiple grades, you are welcome to choose which side you would like to drop off your students.
Some key points to remember to ensure safety:
PLEASE DO NOT PASS THE CAR IN FRONT OF YOU.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO UNLOAD QUICKLY PLEASE PARK IN THE PARKING LOT.
USE ONLY DESIGNATED CROSSWALKS.
DO NOT USE THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING. THAT IS FOR BUSSES ONLY.
PLEASE ARRIVE AT SCHOOL BY 8:10am TO ENSURE YOU ARE ON TIME. If you are late you will have to enter through the main door and get a tardy pass.
In a world of darkness we are called to shine lights of hope, love, peace, and unity.
My heart cries for those impacted by the senseless and heartbreaking tragedy in Las Vegas last night. We know such events can be most unsettling for adults and children, and so I want to equip you parents with a resource to support you with your students.
We are Bison strong and truly connected to see each other through the storms of life.
In love and service,
