Howard Elementary School

Drop off procedures, first day!

The time has finally come!!!  I can’t wait to see how much everyone has grown over the summer!!!! Tomorrow, I am asking that parents drop their students off with their teachers in the following locations:

Kindergarten Students: Outside of Kindergarten doors, closest to York Park, directly facing N. York.

First and Second Grade Students:  Your child’s teacher will be in front of the main entrance doors off of York.  Students will line up with their teacher, and enter the building with her when the bell rings.

3rd and 4th Grade Students: Your child’s teacher will be outside of the doors that are nearest to the parking lot, facing Lawrence.  Students will line up with their teacher, and enter the building with her when the bell rings.

5th grade students: Your child’s teacher will be outside of the doors that face the Oak St/N. York intersection.  Students will line up with their teacher, and enter the building with the bell rings.

I am asking that parents remain outside to ease the transition for students.  Please allow us to start their first day promptly by saying, “have a great day/I love you” outside of the school.  For the safety of all students, I would like to keep the halls clear.

Dismissal is at 11:45.

I am not able to change class lists at this time.  Every student at Howard will receive an excellent education in every class.  If you need to speak to me regarding concerns, I am happy to meet with you.  My priority tomorrow morning, however, is to make sure 435 students and 23 teachers have a FANTASTIC FIRST DAY!!!!
