RBS Principal’s Notes
December 15, 2017
We had a great time this afternoon at our annual Holiday All School Meeting! Staff members dressed in festive garb and led a sing-a-long with the students! Thank you to Mr. Bergquist (Anne Koellmer’s father) for leading us all on the piano.
To all of our families who are celebrating Hanukkah, I wish you a happy and joyous season with family and friends!
IN THE NEWS:
Morning Drop Off
We’re starting to experience some significant back up during morning drop off, which is typical this time of year. Please keep the following suggestions and reminders in mind. It will help everyone out:
- Please arrive as close to 7:30 AM as possible in order to avoid our busy time.
- Please have your child get out of the car at any part of the sidewalk rather than only directly in front of the school entrance.
- Please do not bypass the drop off lane to park in visitor parking and walk your child across the median, unless you arrive after Mr. Paul shuts down the drop off lane (at 8:00 AM). By doing this, you are holding up the people in the drop off lane as they are waiting for you to cross in front of them. Parking and walking your child to the office is reserved for those students who need assistance for one reason or another.
- As always, please be kind and patient! J
