From the Desk of Laura Seck
We certainly have had our share of snow this winter! With the possibility of more snow to come before the official end of winter, please make sure we have your most current phone numbers and that your child's teacher knows how s/he is to get home in the even of an early school closing.
If you are transporting your child to school, please use the LOWER parking lot. It takes less than 3 minutes for you to drop your child off and get back on Sugarland Run. Remember to pull all the way up to the school door closest to Sugarland Run (upper hallway). Once you stop your car, your child may exit and walk to the door closest to his/her classroom. Please do not wave a patrol off. The UPPER parking lot is is for parents, who wish to park and walk their children into the building. This area is not a drop off area for students as it is too dangerous. Please do not use Cell phones while you are driving on school property. We have seen far too many "close calls" (potential car accidents) because parents are speaking on their phones while entering or exiting the parking lots.
Staff does not arrive until 7:30 a.m. Please do not drop off your children before 7:35 a.m., as there is no one here to supervise students. School does not begin until 7:50 AM if you do not see an adult out front, or in the lower parking lot, do not drop off your child.
I hope you were able to review your child's progress with him/her after receiving the second quarter report card. The report card gives you lots of important information about how your child is achieving in school. This is a good time to set goals with your child - both for behavior and academics.
CONGRATULATIONS to Sophia Raphael! Sophia will represent Meadowland at the annual LCPS Spelling Bee on March 6th.
