PTO Update 9-17-17

Parking Lot Safety

We want to keep everyone safe Please remember to:
  • Look for students and families walking to/from their cars to the building. Please drive slowly.
  • Always use crosswalks and watch for people in them.
  • Pick-up/drop-off students in the designated parent pick-up/drop-off lane located near the flagpole. Please pull completely forward and stay in the right-hand lane.
  • If you park your car (before or after school), please walk with your child to or from the building.
  • Please follow the flow of traffic. Cutting through the parking lot can put our families at risk as they may be walking to/from their cars.

Please remember to pick a background color, if no choice is made the background will be blue. Each student needs an order envelope with payment, do not combine them. Please send the exact amount, the school does not have change.

Younger siblings are welcome to come in for photos on picture day as well, please call the school office to find out the best time. Hellriegel wants you to be happy with your picture and has scheduled a retake day for students who would like to try again and students who are not in attendance on Tuesday, November 2nd. Class and group pictures will be taken in March.
