What's Happening in the Lower...


Welcome back!

I hope that your family enjoyed many great holiday happenings and made lasting memories. I had a great time with my family. Now we are all trying to get everyone back in the routine when returning to school for 2nd semester. Here at the Lower we have been doing just that with trying to get our students back to the classroom routines.

Our 1st semester ended just as we left for Christmas Break. It is hard to believe, but that means that we have begun our second half of the school year. Report cards for 1st semester will be sent home throughout the district on Thursday, January 11th. Be on the lookout for your child’s report card.

We have several safety drills coming up that we are required to practice and want our children and staff prepared for, in case of an emergency. These drills include bus evacuation practice, a fire drill, and a tornado drill, as a staff, we also discuss procedures for lockdown situations. Most of these drills we practice and/or discuss multiple times in the year to insure safety procedures are always in place.

There will be No School on Monday, January 15th. Our staff will be on campus for professional meetings and training that day.

There will be an Eagle Pass (PTA) meeting on Tuesday, January 16th at 6 pm, in the elementary.

Our Elementary Yearbooks go on sale January 16th.  We will send a yearbook order form home for you to fill out and send back to your child’s teacher by January 31st.  The cost of the yearbook is $20.00. 

Prevent Blindness will be on campus January 22nd – 24th, to do vision screenings for all of our elementary students. Be on the lookout for notes about the screening.

Winter weather is upon us and school closings due to snow or ice are likely.  Dr. Saul, our superintendent, always notifies the television stations for Channel 2, 6, 8, and 23, also radio stations KRMG – AM 740 and FM 102.3, when this decision is made, so please tune into one of these stations for school closings.  We try not to dismiss during the school day, but please make sure you have “Plan B” in place for your child’s transportation, should we have to make this call.  We only dismiss early if the weather is deteriorating the road conditions too rapidly and becoming a safety hazard to finish our full day of school. If they are a bus rider, someone needs to be at home and available for them when they are dropped off early.  You are also welcome to call the school and make a transportation change if necessary. 

Please make sure you check the calendar on the website for upcoming events at Sequoyah Elementary.
