Greetings Wynbrooke Parents
We have hit the ground running into our 3rd week of school! Please take a moment to review the updates below so you are prepared for the week ahead.
Title I Pre-Planning Meeting:
As a Title I School, you play a very important role in deciding how we allocate funding to support our instructional program and our efforts to strengthen teaching and learning during the 2018-2019 school year. We hope you will come out and let your voice be heard! For your convenience, we will meet Tuesday, August 28th at 9:00 am and again at 5:45 pm. If you have not already done so, please visit our website and complete the Title I Parent Survey. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
Birthday Celebrations and Food Allergies:
Please be mindful that student birthdays can only be celebrated with cupcakes or small snacks in the cafeteria during the scheduled lunch period, not the classroom. This celebration should not include decorations, party favors, goody bags, or other accouterments. Please refer to page 21 in Parent-Student Handbook found in your child’s agenda planner for further explanation. We also ask that you refrain from sending fast foods, etc. due to the high number of students with life-threatening food allergies.
Arrival and Car Rider Dismissal:
Our doors open at 7:00 am. At that time students are able to go to breakfast or their grade level holding room. At 7:35 am, students are released to go to their classroom. We urge you to encourage your child’s independence and allow him/her to walk to their designated location.
Access to teachers is limited to 7:35 am-7:45 am. Our instructional day begins promptly at 7:45 am. All class drop-offs must come to an end and teachers are required to begin instruction. If you would like to meet with your child’s teacher we ask that you schedule a conference at another time. Thank you for understanding our commitment to protecting instructional time.
Dismissal begins at 2:15 pm. As a courtesy, parents are allowed a grace period that should not pass 2:45 pm. It is critically important for you to pick up your child no later than 2:45 pm because we do not have adequate staff on site to supervise students past the school day.
All parents of afternoon car riders must be registered with Kidgopher. If your child is not registered, you will be required to park your vehicle and come into the front office for sign out.
School Uniform Policy:
Take time to review the Uniform Policy that is in the Student/Parent Handbook located in the student agenda planner. Attend closely to your child’s shoes (must be solid black or solid brown) and belts, which must be worn by students in 1st-5thgrades. Remember, navy blue and white uniforms should be worn on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Please plan to attend our first PTA Meeting which is scheduled for Tuesday, August 28th at 6:30 pm. Be sure to visit our website for upcoming events.
We are looking forward to another amazing week of teaching and learning at Wynbrooke!
Jermain Sumler-Faison, Principal
