Welcome to the 2015–2016 school year! I hope your summer has been refreshing and that you enjoy the last few days!
The first day of school is Tuesday, August 18th. We ask that all families new to Sleepy Hollow join us for our New Family Welcome in the lunchroom at 8:15 a.m. on that day. The Welcome is a social occasion to provide an opportunity for our new families to gain further information about the school and PTC as well as develop a network for new and “seasoned” Sleepy Hollow parents.
The school day begins at 8:00 a.m. and concludes at 2:15 p.m. The procedures for daily arrival will remain the same as in years past. Students in kindergarten through second grade will enter the school through the front doors and line up in the lunchroom. Students in grades third through fifth will line up outside on the sidewalk in designated areas. Please know that for the first week, many additional staff members will be present to direct students to the correct location. Students not riding District 300 buses should arrive at Sleepy Hollow after 7:45 a.m. There will not be supervision before 7:45 a.m. When driving a child to school, please use the far parking lot drop-off/pick-up point. Mrs. Campen will be present to help students out of/into their cars. Last year’s experiences with the new parking lot have allowed us to modify procedures to create a more efficient system. You will notice that there are now drop-off stalls along the sidewalk. Please pull forward along the sidewalk to the open spaces to allow for others behind you to pull up as well. We now have a drop-off lane and a through lane. As the year begins, we will monitor the process to ensure safety and efficiency. The main parking lot drop-off lane remains reserved for the buses.
We will have a building-wide supply drop-off on August 17th, from 12:00-1:00. Please feel free to bring supplies to your child's classroom during this hour. This includes all grade levels in the building. If you ordered a school supply kit, you can pick it up at school on August 11th between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Our annual Parent Curriculum Nights are planned for August 24th and 25th. Please put this important event on your calendar and plan to attend. Teachers will discuss highlights of the year, classroom procedures, and curricula. This evening is for parents/guardians only. The PTC will be present with information about how to get involved at school. Our PTC continues to be one of the strongest in the district!
With your support our children will thrive at Sleepy Hollow Elementary! I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
