WHAT DID I DO THIS SUMMER? Mrs. Popp, As with every summer, the summer of 2018 was fun filled, relaxing, and productive. The Popp family completed a lot of projects around the house, went snorkeling in Lake Geneva, spent time up in the Dells, and visited family in Spooner, WI. We enjoyed making many great memories with friends and family!
A six minute dismissal! Thanks to all for working together for a safe, quick dismissal. It was a great first week, and we are looking forward to the next one!
Pick-up was 4 minutes faster today--even with the rain! Folks are coming early, though. We had 30 cars in line by 3:20, and the line backed up from there. With so many people coming early, the line gets long, and the wait must seem even longer. We dismiss students at 3:30, and it takes several minutes for them to get out of the building and to their spots. Please remember that our preschool students are dismissed at 3:15 and do not pull into the fire lane until all of our little ones are picked up. Those cars must be able to pull up to the front of the building. Thanks to those of you who pulled forward at drop off this morning! It was smooth and quickly done!
Hello, Falcons! Even with the rain and late student dismissal, the pick up process took just over 8 minutes from the first to final student! A couple tweaks to keep the lines moving: during drop off, please unload on the south side of the cross walk so that we can keep the line moving. Feel free to pull forward so that more cars can fit in the circle. On our end, we'll work on dismissing students on time! Thanks for your patience as we all learn and grow!
First day is almost here! Check your email with beginning of the day reminders. School starts at 8:20 and dismisses at 3:30. Can't wait!
