Important Changes for Chromebook Distribution Information:

Good afternoon. Due to the high volume of request for Chromebooks, we will only be able to supply one Chromebook per family at this time. Please be aware you may also use any personal device such as Desktop Computers, Laptops, Chromebooks, Ipads, and Tablets. If you called or sent us an email before yesterday, Saturday April 4th at 4:30 PM, you will be on the 1st wave and can pick up a Chromebook this Monday or Tuesday as scheduled. We will also be sending a confirmation email to the 1st wave of recipients. If you did not call or send an email before yesterday, Saturday April 4th at 4:30 PM you will not be on the list to pick up a Chromebook, you will be added to the 2nd wave. We will be notifying all 2nd wave individuals in a few days. We are encouraged by the tremendous response to take advantage of these learning opportunities. We will work diligently to prepare more devices. Thank you all for your cooperation and patience as we do our best to serve you.

Adjustments will be made to the Kindergarten Registration process as needed and as our current situation continues to evolve.

Safety Awareness

Mission Statement:  90% of all accidents are caused by doing unsafe acts!

  • Be on the lookout for school zone signals and ALWAYS obey the speed limits.
  • When entering a school zone, be sure to slow down and obey all traffic laws.
  • Always stop for school busses that are loading or unloading children.
  • Watch out for school crossing guards and obey their signals.
  • Be aware of and watch out for children near schools, bus stops, sidewalks, in the streets, in school parking lots, etc.
  • Never pass other vehicles while driving in a school zone.
  • Never change lanes while driving in a school zone.
  • Never make U-Turns while driving in a school zone.
  • Never text while driving in a school zone.
  • Avoid using a cell phone, unless it is completely hands-free, while driving in a school zone.
  • Unless licensed to do so, never use handicap or emergency vehicle lanes or spaces to drop off or pick up children at school.

 

Safety tip of the month:

Please use extra caution when the crossing guards are in their designated areas.  Its of high importance to STOP at all crosswalks and to follow the appropriate speed limits through the high traffic areas around the school zones.


With active supervision and some basic safety tips, every day at the playground can be a walk in the park.

 

The Hard Facts

Falls are the most common type of playground injury, accounting for more than 75 percent of all playground-related injuries. Lack of or improper supervision is associated with approximately 45 percent of playground-related injuries.

 

Top Tips

  • Actively supervise children on playgrounds. It won’t be hard – they’ll probably be calling for you to watch them climb, jump and swing.
  • Take your kids to playgrounds with shock-absorbing surfaces such as rubber, synthetic turf, sand, pea gravel, wood chips or mulch. If your child falls, the landing will be more cushioned than on asphalt, concrete, grass or dirt.
  • Dress appropriately for the playground. Remove necklaces, purses, scarves or clothing with drawstrings that can get caught on equipment and pose a strangulation hazard. Even helmets can be dangerous on a playground, so save those for bikes.

 

Teach children that pushing, shoving or crowding while on the playground can be dangerous.
