8-30-2015

Welcome back Callahan Families!!

Just a few reminders about the first few days:

School Starts on Monday, August 31, 2015

Parent Drop Off and Parent Pick Up-Please be aware that if you plan on dropping your child off at school that it can be done from 8:25-8:40 in the front of the school.  The back parking lot is reserved for buses only during these hours.  If your child is going to be a parent pick up on the first day, please send a note in to his or her teacher telling us the student name and who will be picking your child up.  Please make sure that the person picking your child up understands that they will need a picture ID in order for the school to release the child to them. The person picking your child up will need to park in the front of the school and enter through the main office. They will be allowed in at 2:55 and ID’s and signatures will need to be completed before the child is released to the adult.  Thank you for complying with our procedures that are put in place for the safety of all of our students!

Walkers- If your child will be walking home after school; we need a note on the first day of school telling us the student name and the address they are walking to.  They will sign out every day at the end of the day.  Even if your child was a walker last year, we need a note this year.

Bus Routes-Dattco is the new bus company for the school department.  Your child’s bus route can be found by going to Dattco’s webpage.

Student Paperwork- Please take the time to go through the paperwork that came home in the white envelop on Monday afternoon.  There are many important papers for you to fill out.  Please return those with your child on Tuesday morning. The district is encouraging all families to fill out the federal lunch form even if you do not intend on using it. The district is able to capture federal funding based on the information families provide to us on those forms.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated!


Summer Math- Please make sure your child has brought in their Summer Reflex Math sheet (Grades 3, 4, & 5 only).  They will be collected on the first day of school.

Open House-Callahan’s Open House will take place on Wednesday, September 9,2015 from 6-8PM.  There will be a more detailed flyer coming home this week.
