MORNING BUSES & DROP OFF
The snow has caused many obstacles for morning drop off and procedures have become somewhat un-safe. Every morning the buses arrive at 7:35 for the 7:40 drop off. This takes approximately 5 minutes (at the most) and then the buses are gone. It is expected that cars will then drive through the drop off zone directly in front of the school, one at a time. I realize many people are in a hurry however this is the safest way for children to arrive. At current, our pull over lane and walkway from the main road (McKeen Drive) is not plowed which means it is not safe to park and or drop off the younger students there. Please be patient and pull in by the front entrance. Parents & guardians are asked to move through as quickly as possible, do not leave cars parked or unattended in the drop off zone to come into the school, and do NOT pass or go around cars that are in the drop off zone. If you wish to park and come in, please park at the furthest parking lot past the large garbage bins. For parents dropping off students to catch the buses heading into town, I do understand this is more difficult. If you must drop off by McKeen, plus be mindfull of students and other cars when pulling over and back out again. It is preferrable that you simply use the larger parkinglot.
Please dress your children extra warm during the winter months.
As per policy ASD-W-550-2
School personnel should monitor students for frostbite and adjust the recess time outside according to the weather in their area. Generally, temperatures below -20ºC (Wind Chill) would warrant staying inside.
Don't forget to come see our Christmas concert on Tuesday, December 12th! There are 2 showings, one at 10:00 and one at 12:30. If there is a snowday and school happens to be cancelled tomorrow the 12th, the concert will be rescheduled for the same times on Thursday, December 13th.
KRS is supporting local families at Christmas. For the week of December 4th-8th, students can bring in donations and wear something special. Our goal is $500.
Monday, 4th: Hat Day
Tuesday, 5th: Christmas Clothing ((hat, sweater, antlers, etc..)
Wednesday, 6th: Superhero Day
Thursday, 7th: Team Jersey Day
Friday, 8th: PJ and slipper Day
If you ordered your child hot lunch or milk on a day that there is no school, you will receive a credit for that day from Resto. This includes PD days, holidays and storm days. You will receive a credit slip in your child's communication bag informing you of your credit.
It is your responsibility to use the credit. This can be done by writing in the comments section of your ordering slip “credit for ________” and filling the blank with the day you would like to apply it to on your next order. Teachers will have credit information should parents have questions.
Monthly and Weekly Ordering Options
Monthly ordering for those who would prefer will begin this week. If you would still like to order weekly, we ask that you cut your slips, and send back to the school every Wednesday. We hope this new ordering system will benefit all.
Christmas Raffle Baskets
It is that time of year again!! We are asking that each student brings in one item to help fill their classroom raffle basket. They do not need to be expensive and most can be found at the dollar store. These are a huge hit and will be raffled off during the Christmas concert on December 12th. We ask that you have your items sent in with your child no later than December 6th. We thank you for all your support!!
