The teachers have been hard at work this week preparing their classrooms and are so excited to welcome back all of our students on Monday! By now you should have received the homeroom assignment for your child(ren) and we hope you as parents can stay to join us for the Welcome Back to School Bash on Monday at 8am. We are so grateful to the Wildcat Fund for sponsoring this event for all parents, free of charge, so please plan on staying for at least a few minutes.
More information will come at the various Back to School nights throughout the year but I wanted to explain a few changes you are bound to see around the campus this upcoming school year. As you know, we always strive to continue to improve in the area of safety and security for our students. With that in mind, and due to the generosity of the Wildcat Fund this past year, we have been able to implement a more secure sign-in process at the main office lobby. You will be buzzed in to the building and asked to sign in at the new kiosk using your driver's license. A visitors label will be printed for you with your photo for use while volunteering during the school day. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we all acclimate to this new system. Finally, you will also notice that the staff will be utilizing some new walkie-talkies throughout their day to enhance our communication across the campus. Thank you to everyone who donated to make these improvements possible.
I hope your entire family enjoy these last few days of summer together and are excited to start the new school year on Monday! I am looking forward to having all of the students and families back around the campus, we have surely missed everyone this summer!
