The following is a procedure update from Principal Bryant…
Thanks for all you’ve done to help us have an exceptionally smooth start to the new school year. I’ve really enjoyed connecting and reconnecting with all of our Stoddert families.
Moving forward, I have three requests:
1. Unless your child is enrolled in our before-school morning care program, please do not drop your child off without supervision prior to 8:30am. Teachers will take students from their morning entrance location to the classroom at 8:43am, so please try to have your child arrive at school a few minutes prior to that time. Did you know that we offer free breakfast every morning for all students at Stoddert, even those not in the morning care program? If you want to take advantage of this, come in with your child anytime after 8:15am and sign in with security. You must stay with them while they eat, unless they are in the morning care program. Then make sure they go to line-up before the teachers head into the school at 8:43am.
2. VERY IMPORTANT: If you wish to go anywhere in the building beyond the lobby, you must first sign in with security and receive clearance. This applies during morning entrance, as well as at all other times.
3. As school gets underway, teachers are trying to establish a morning routine, so we ask that you arrive to school on time and have your child line up with their classmates at 8:43am. If your child is late, check in with the office and your child will walk themselves to class. We ask that parents refrain from walking their children to their classroom, since we are trying to limit interruptions during instructional time. If you do need to speak with your child’s teacher, contact them via email to schedule a day and time to meet. They would be more than happy to meet with you.
