IMPORTANT - END OF DAY DISMISSAL
As we prepare for the upcoming school year, one of the most important things to us is making sure that children remain safe as they arrive to and dismiss from school. In an effort to ensure a smooth dismissal for students, parents must fill out a dismissal form for each student and return to our school by Thursday, August 6, 2015. This will help to ensure that your child utilizes the mode or method of transportation that you prefer. Keep in mind that we require all parents to fill out a new form each year for each child as we do not use any dismissal information from last school year. Please click here for the form.
Please remember that if you are using a daycare either before school, after school, or both you must fill out a Child Care Transportation form. We appreciate your prompt return of these attached forms as we work together to ensure the safety of our children during arrival and dismissal times.
2015-2016 CHILD CARE TRANSPORTATION FORM
If your child(ren) will be in child care either before school, after school,or both during the 2015-2016 school year, you must complete a "Child Care/Day Care Transportation Form". This is true even if they are attending Y Care in the building. A new form must be completed for each new school year.Click here to access the form. Please fill out and return to the school office prior to the start of school.
Due to a change in the PA State Child Protective
Services Law, effective July 1, 2015, there will be new
clearance requirements for all VOLUNTEERS who would
like to assist in a classroom or the Library, go on a field trip,
or assist with building activities/events. Please read the
information on the district's homepage under Community/Volunteer information
to read about the requirements and clearances you must obtain before
you may volunteer.
