New for 2018-2019 - Important Message From Mrs. Creel
Morning Drop-off Changes
This is Sherrill Creel, principal at Blaney Elementary. After much consideration and putting student safety first, we've decided on some changes in afternoon procedures. Beginning Monday, August 20th, anyone picking up a child must use the car rider line to get any students who are leaving as car riders. This means no one will be allowed to park on school grounds, exit their car and walk up to the building to get their child.
Also, walkers will only be permitted to walk with a staff member to Stover if a family member is employed by Stover or the child lives in Pine Forest Subdivision. Parents may no longer park on school grounds to retrieve their child as walkers. A walker waiver must be signed and on file in order for a student to be classified as a walker. Please see your child's teacher for a waiver.
I know these are big changes but please know our number one priority is the safety of our students. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about these new procedures. I am looking forward to working with each and every one of you!
Parents of Afternoon Car RidersWe are asking that you leave your child's name tag VISIBLE until your child is safely in your car. This practice will allow the duty personnel who are on the curb a visual and assistance in calling and helping your child into the car each afternoon. This will make for a smoother, quicker dismissal. Thank you for your assistance.
It is an honor and privilege for me to serve as your new principal! Blaney already feels like home! I would like to thank you for the warm welcome. Everyone has been so kind and positive. Your love for Blaney is very evident. I promise to serve you in a way that promotes trust, enthusiasm and inspiration as we work together to meet the needs of all students at Blaney. Your children are my number one priority and I am looking forward to getting to know them!! I am very excited about the upcoming school year and can’t wait to get started! See you soon!
Please call me or stop by my office if I can help you in any way!!
What a great start to our 2018-2019 school year here at Blaney Elementary! There have been lots of smiles from the teachers and students as we begin the learning process again. I know you parents are a little apprehensive, but excited at the same time as your child embarks onto a new grade level and adventure.
Our students are in great hands and our teachers will take care of them like their own. Please keep open communication with your child's teacher via telephone, email, class webpage, and especially parent-teacher conferences. Remember to show your children the importance of education. If you share the desire of learning with your child, they will see that education is a powerful tool. We are always learning! All of us here at Blaney wish you and your family a fabulous 2018-2019 school year!
