Dear Elkridge Families,
The 2014 - 2015 school year began with students meeting their new teachers and taking time to catch up with old friends. We want to thank all of our parents and families for being patient with our first days arrival and dismissal procedures. We know the first day of school is special and several parents drop off and/or pick up their children from school on this day.
We encourage families to begin their regular routines coming to and from school. For example, if your child is a bus rider, have them begin riding the bus; if your child is a walker, please encourage him/her to walk to school as they regularly would during the remainder of the school year. Finally, if your child is a regular car rider, this process can take up to 15 minutes during dismissal each afternoon. Car riders will be dismissed with our walkers. We appreciate your help in ensuring that all of our students arrive to school and get home safely. Thank you for your patience as we continue to establish our routines for the school year.
