Weekly Parent Newsletter 9/4-9/7


Parent Newsletter   9/4/18

Early Arrival for Students:Please note that the school will be accessible to ALL students beginning at 8:00am. We do not provide direct student supervision until 8:30. If your student arrives early we will ask them to play on the playground or sit in the office until appropriate supervision is provided. At 8:30am all students will be allowed to access classrooms or play outside with direct supervision. And as always, we kindly ask kids not to run, play or wander the hallways or other classrooms in our building. Students are our top priority and we want them all the have a great experience each day! 

Bus Lane Pick-up/drop-off: Some clarification of where to access your students before or after school. Please be courteous and follow the painted lines on the curbing. 

Yellow painted lines = parent pick-up and drop-off zones (North & South ends)

Green painted lines = bus zone (Center East side)

We invite you to drop your student off or pick them up in the correct locations. The flow of traffic though tricky at times is critical to helping students arrive and leave safely. If you choose the North end of the building please pull through from the South end and leave on the North end. This will help us all do our best to get our grizzlies here and home. 

Please do not pull in to the green busing zone. Even if you do not see a bus we currently have 8 buses to transport students at Mt. Loafer and it is not an approved area for parents to park or pull through. 

PTO News: BOX TOP COLLECTION! September 13-14. Bring in 10 or more Box Tops and you get a bag of popcorn! Look for the Box Top table outside at lunch recess. 

Fall/Halloween Carnival: We will have our annual carnival on October 8th! Please mark your calendars and plan to come spend an evening full of outdoor fun with our grizzly family! Our awesome PTO does a great job planning and executing this event. Whether new or returning to Mt. Loafer we are excited to have you come support our PTO fundraiser.  

Spirit Friday: Each Friday our faculty & Staff as well as any students who want or choose to participate will have a Mt. Loafer Grizzlies Spirit Friday! We invite our grizzlies to show their school pride by wearing a Mt. Loafer Tee Shirt. If you are in need of a shirt The PTO will have school spirit shirts for sale in the front office. They are $10 each or 3 for $25. You may pay the PTO directly by check, cash or venmo. 

As always, If you have any questions regarding PTO please contact Tara Rasmussen at:  rrasfam@gmail.com
