Week of January 23, 2017

Thursday Folder Fliers:

Parking Lot Update:
Please DO NOT drop students off in our parking lot areas in the morning as this is an unsafe procedure. All students must be dropped off in our supervised drop off lane next to the sidewalk. Also, cell phone use is not permitted in our parking lot. Please do not use your cell phone until you are outside of our parking lot area. Thank you for your help in ensuring the safety of our students and staff. 

Students in the Morning:
Student supervision begins at 8:15am. Students should not arrive before this time as there is no supervision available. 

Band and Orchestra Students:
Please remind your band and orchestra students that they need to enter the building through our front doors so that we can ensure that they are safe and account for their attendance. Many of our students are choosing to stay on the playground where there is no supervision. Thank you for your help with this!

Office Procedures:
As you may have noticed, our office has changed! When you arrive at Iron Horse, please check in at the office window. You will check in electronically via computer and will need to check out upon leaving. This system will ensure that we have an accurate count of all adults in the building in case of emergency. 

Clean the World Soap Drive:
We are collecting bars of unused soap for our Clean the World soap drive. About every 15 seconds, a child dies from a disease that could have been prevented with proper hygiene. The bar soap your we collect will save lives. Depending on demand, your soap will be used in the hygiene kits Clean the World distribute to homeless shelters here in the United States, or sent to at-risk people in developing regions abroad. Since 2009, Clean the World has distributed in 100 countries. Please have your student bring in donations of unused soap to their classroom teacher. Donations will be accepted until February 10th
