Student Classroom Placement:
Your child’s classroom placement can be viewed on August 18th using your Parent Portal Account. Your Parent Portal Account MUST be updated in order to receive your child’s classroom placement. If you have not updated your emergency contacts on your Parent Portal Account, you may come to the office on the first day of school to receive it. Please allow yourself enough time as a long line is a possibility.
First Day of School:
The 2015-2016 school year begins on Wednesday, August 19th at 8:30 a.m. Students are expected to either be in their classroom line or sitting in their desk precisely at 8:30am. If your child is late, they will be asked to enter the school through the date by the office. They will need to come to the office for a tardy pass before going to their classroom.
The first minimum day is Thursday, August 27th. Dismissal will be at 1:00pm on each Thursday.
Families on Campus:
During the first three days of school, you are invited to drop off your child at their classroom line. Beginning August 24, 2015, we are asking you to drop off your child at the front of the school.
Back to School Night:
Back to School Night 2015 will be on September 3, 2015. Mr. Sweeney will welcome everyone at 5:45pm in the Eagle’s Nest. Upper Grade teachers will give their presentations beginning at 6:00pm. Primary Grade teachers will give their presentations beginning at 6:30pm. Back to School Night is an opportunity for teachers to inform you what your child is going to learn through the school year and what is expected of them in the classroom for the year. Back to School Night is an adult only event. Please make child care arrangements for the evening. The playground should not be considered as your child care.

The safety of your child is a top priority for the staff of Evergreen School. We, the staff at Evergreen School, urge you to make safety of your child and other children a top priority as well. Please do not drop your child off at school prior to 8:15am. Student supervision does not begin until 8:15am. Work and personal time commitments are important, but more important is the safety of your child.
When crossing a street, children as well as adults need to use the crosswalks. Although it may not be the most convenient or the fastest way to get to and from campus, it is the safest way to travel.
When driving, make sure you yield the right of way to pedestrians and obey all the rules of the road and signs including the “No Stopping Anytime” signs posted around the perimeter of the campus.
There are a lot of students arriving to school in a relatively short window of time. If it is necessary for you to drive your child to school in the morning, instead of walking, try your very best to pull up as far as you can in the drop off line. Your child does not need to be dropped off in front of the entrance gate. They can walk a short distance so we can accommodate more cars that are dropping off. Before pulling away, make sure the car door is closed.
If you are walking to school, the parking lot should not be used as a short cut to get to campus. This causes back up for the parents driving students to school to drop off. Please use the sidewalks to enter and leave campus when walking.
Arriving on time is an important life skill we would like to instill in each of the students. Allowing your child and yourself enough travel time will help learning this very important life skill. Make adjustments in your morning routine to guarantee a safe and relaxed arrival at school. Your child is expected to be in their classroom line or in their classroom seat at 8:30am sharp, and not running to “beat the bell.”
By working together and making the safety of our Evergreen students a top priority, we can ensure our students get to and from school in a safe manner without incident. The staff of Evergreen School appreciates your support.
