    New for 2018-2019 -  Important Message From Mrs. Creel

     

    Morning Drop-off Changes

    We would like to first thank you so much for embracing our new afternoon dismissal procedures.  These new procedures have increased safety and efficiency in the afternoons for our students.  As we continue to improve school safety for our students, we are going to implement a change in our morning car rider procedures.  
     
    Beginning, Monday, August 27th, parents will no longer be allowed to get out of their car during drop-off unless you have a scheduled parent conference, items to drop off or an unexpected situation with your child that would need our faculty or staff's attention. This means parents may not use the parking lot or the grass area for student drop-off.
     
    These new procedures have been implemented after lots of careful consideration and monitoring of current procedures.  
     
    As always, safety is our number one priority at Blaney Elementary.
     

    Afternoon Pick-up 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 Riders

    We 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.

    A Message from the Assistant Principal

     

    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!

    -- Mrs. Butler
