No School – Labor Day on Monday, September 2nd

Summer just always seems to fly by with all of the nice weather and fun family experiences together. It is so exciting to be back in the school routine. I know we have some tears and sad kiddos as they come to school from time to time over the first few weeks. I assure you the students are having a great time once they are in the room. We believe whole heartedly in having fun while we learn. Open House was a great success. It was definitely a packed house…one hour is becoming too short of a time with as many supportive families as we have attending.

Remember that our students should be walking themselves to class without any parents in the halls after the first week or two. Safety is very important to us. Any visitors, including family members, must report to our receptionist’s office to sign in and get a visitor’s badge anytime you need to go any further in our building or are visiting for lunch. You will also need a photo ID, if the receptionist does not recognize you or if we have other concerns. 

If you are dropping off your child you may begin this process at 8:00 a.m. NO students are allowed in the buildings before 8 am. You may see staff children or our Safety Patrol students entering early, but no other traditional students. If you are picking them up at the end of the day, then you must be in line by 3:10 pm. Right now, it is taking a bit longer for our little ones and their families to learn the pick-up routine. Eventually, we are loading our last pick-up kiddo at 3:20 pm. Remember to not get out of your car, and to pull forward from the line and stop at the end of the parking lot, if you need to safely help your child buckle up. You can imagine how long we would be here if just 10 of our cars took an extra 2 minutes to buckle up while in line.  For the safety of your child it is vital that you follow these times.  Teachers do not report until 8:00 am. This is 25 minutes before class begins. All 1st and 2nd grade students will go directly to the playground, and there are no teachers out there until 8 am. If it is raining, very muddy, or too cold, then we will have signs up to notify them to go straight to class. All PreK and Kindergarten students report straight to their classrooms everyday.

Any transportation changes must be written on a note, placed in the communication area of their folder/clear zip bag and given to your child’s teacher or you may call our office.  Please understand we will not be able to make changes any other way.  Students will not be allowed to verbally notify their teacher of changes.  If you are calling to make a change you must notify our office staff by 1:45 p.m.  We will not be able to make any changes after that time. Once we are at that time, I deliver the notes to the teachers. Safety is #1, and we cannot make last minute changes with approximately 650 elementary students and then to get where they need to be by 3 pm.      

We will have some important safety drills. So if your child(ren) tells you about such, then please know we are just practicing our safety in the rare chance of an emergency situation. These include drills such as, fire, tornado, and bus evacuation.

Please continue to check the calendar on our website for upcoming events at Sequoyah Elementary or download our Sequoyah School app.  On our website, you can also sign up for email updates.

Keep those Box Tops, Best Choice upc’s and Tyson labels rolling in!  These programs have been very successful thanks to the support of our parents.  It is amazing how much money accumulates with even those little 10 cent Box Tops. Get your family members and friends to help make this coming year the biggest collection ever. You can send them with your child(ren) or drop them at the front office.

If you every have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us, 918-341-6111.
