    Siler City Elementary School Families,

    Our Fall Fundraiser started this past week and your student should have a packet that was sent home with information.  The sale will end on September 20th.  After the sale is complete, items ordered should be delivered to the school at the end of October.  Please consider supporting our school by participating in our Fall Fundraiser.

    Save the date for our annual Fall Festival which will be October 20th.  Watch for information in your student’s backpack closer to that date.  

    Students in 3rd grade will be administered the Beginning of Grade Assessment on Wednesday, September 13th. Please make sure your 3rd grader is well rested and at school on time.

    We will be holding our 2nd grade Parent Night on Monday, September 11th, from 5:30 to 6:30.  3rd grade Parent Night will be on Tuesday, September 12th from 5:30 to 6:30.  Please come out and learn about your child’s class and how you can support your child directly from your child’s teachers.   

    If you have not read the Parent/Student Handbook, please take a few minutes to do so.  If you need another copy, please check with the front office.

    We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Siler City Elementary School Families,

     

    I appreciate everyone’s patience in carpool Monday morning and afternoon.  What a difference a day makes!  Tuesday morning buses and carpool went more smoothly.  Time and service should continue to improve over the coming days.

     

    We continue to have significant issues, however, with parents dropping students off prior to 7:30 a.m. without permission, or with parents parking, walking their child/children in prior to 7:30 a.m. and then leaving the students in the cafeteria.  As a reminder, if you have a job that requires you to drop your child off prior to 7:30, please email Dr. Larry Savage at:  lsavage@chatham.k12.nc.us.  You will need to include in your email a letter from your employer describing your start time as well as a contact number for your employer.  You may also drop off this information at the front office.  

     

    SCE staff report to school at 7:30 each morning.  Our front office interpreter (Itzel Ocelot) arrives at 7:15.  To accommodate parents who have unique work situations, we have also assigned an instructional assistant to supervise students of these parents as well as our ‘first run’ bus students.  We do not have additional staff members who can arrive at 7:00.  Put simply, to ensure our students’ safety, we can only supervise children between 7:00 and 7:30 who have the highest need.

     

    To ensure that all students dropped off early have the proper permission, we are putting a new procedure in place.  Starting Thursday, August 31, we will only allow students and parents to enter the building before 7:30 who have been granted permission to be dropped off early, or ride a ‘first run’ bus.  We will have a staff member at the front door to be sure that this procedure is followed.  At 7:30, we will let students and parents in the building, though parents and students must continue to wait in the front office until 7:35.  At 7:35, students in the front office and the cafeteria will be released to go to classrooms.

     

    We appreciate in advance your following of this new procedure.  To avoid these issues altogether, please remember that our school buses are the safest and most efficient way to get to school.  If you need more information on riding a bus, please call our front office at (919) 663-2032 and we will help you.   If riding a bus is not an option, carpool is the next best option.  Once carpool is running efficiently, you may arrive between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. and drop your child off with minimal waiting.  Walking your child into our school each morning is least efficient as parking, waiting for parking, backing up from parking, and walking your children through the parking lot slows down cars trying to access carpool and increases the likelihood of accidents between cars, or between cars and students.

     

    Sincerely,

    Estimadas familias de Siler City Elementary,

    Aprecio la paciencia de todos en la línea de carros del lunes en la mañana y en la tarde. ¡que diferencia hace un día! El martes en la mañana la línea de carros estuvo más calmada. El tiempo y servicio seguirán mejorando en los próximos días.

    Sigue habiendo problemas con los padres que dejan a sus niños antes de las 7:30 a.m. sin permiso, o con los que se estacionan para encaminarlos y dejarlos en la cafetería. Como un recordatorio, si tiene que dejar a su niño/a temprano por el trabajo, por favor mande un correo electrónico al director Dr. Larry Savage: lsavage@chatham.k12.nc.us.  Tendrá que incluir en su mensaje una carta de su empleador con la hora de entrada al igual que el número telefónico de su empleador. También puede dejar esta información en la oficina.

    El personal de SCE se reporta a la escuela a las 7:30 cada mañana. Nuestra intérprete en la oficina (Itzel Ocelot) llega a las 7:15 para ajustarse a los padres que tiene situaciones de trabajo únicas, también asignamos a una asistente de maestra para supervisar a los estudiantes de estos padres al igual que a los estudiantes que viajan en la “primera ronda”. No tenemos mas personal que pueda llegar a las 7:00. En pocas palabras, para asegurar la seguridad de los estudiantes, solo podemos supervisar de 7:00-7:30  a los niños con mayor necesidad.

    Para asegurarnos de que cada estudiante que se deje temprano tenga permiso previo, estamos estableciendo un procedimiento nuevo. Comenzando el jueves 31 de agosto solo permitiremos que los padres y estudiantes con permiso previo de dejar a sus niños temprano o los estudiantes de la “primera ronda” de autobuses entren al edificio antes de las 7:30. Tendremos un personal de la escuela en la puerta para asegurarse que se siga este procedimiento. A las 7:30 permitiremos que los padres y estudiantes entren al edificio, sin embargo, los padres y estudiantes deberán seguir esperando en la oficina hasta las 7:35. A las 7:35 los estudiantes en la oficina y en la cafetería podrán pasar a sus aulas.

    De antemano apreciamos su ayuda al seguir este procedimiento. Para evitar estos problemas, por favor recuerde que la manera más segura y eficiente de viajar a la escuela es a través de nuestros autobuses. Si necesita más información sobre viajar en autobús por favor comuníquese a la oficina al (919) 663-2032 y lo ayudaremos. Si viajar por autobús no es una opción, la siguiente mejor opción es la línea de carros. Una vez la línea de carros vaya de manera eficiente, usted podrá llegar de 7:30-7:45 a.m. y dejar a su niño/a con poca espera. Encaminar a su estudiante a la escuela es la manera menos eficiente de dejar a sus hijos, ya que tiene que estacionarse, esperar a estacionarse, salir del estacionamiento, y encaminar a su estudiante por el estacionamiento hace que la línea de carros se desacelere y aumenta la probabilidad de que pase un accidente entre los carros o entre los carros y los estudiantes.

     

    Sinceramente,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Director, SCE

    Siler City Elementary School Families,

    We are excited to welcome your kids back Monday.  By all measures, we had an extremely successful 2016/17 school year.  We saw significant student growth in all areas and we hope to be able to share specific data very soon.  More importantly, we’re focused on making 2017/18 even more successful.  To get the school year started off right, we wanted to pass on some important information to ensure a smooth start.

    Please remember that school starts at 7:55 each day and ends at 2:55.  Education research shows how critical school attendance is for your child’s academic success.  Please do your part in making sure your child is at school each day on time and ready to learn.

    Remember that you may not drop off kids for school earlier than 7:35 a.m.  After 7:35 a.m., you may either park and walk your child into school, or use the designated drop-off location for carpool.  If you have a job that requires you to drop your child off prior to 7:35, please email Dr. Larry Savage at:  lsavage@chatham.k12.nc.us.  You will need to include in your email a letter from your employer describing your start time.  You may also drop off this information at the front office.

    All carpool parents should have carpool numbers.  If you need a number, please let us know in the front office and we will get one to you.  Also, if you need a duplicate number for multiple cars, we can do that too.  We have a process in place whereby you can pick up your child in carpool without cartags the first week.

    Please do not forget project ‘make Dr. Savage sleep on the roof.’  Have your children bring in their reading logs on the first day of school.  If your child has lost their log, they can get a new log from their teacher and turn them in on the first week.

    We will have a number of staff members in the parking lot the first couple of weeks of school to help direct traffic and keep cars moving.  As always, the safety of our students is most important to us.  We appreciate your patience in advance as delays in both carpool and buses are typical the first couple of weeks.  

    We look forward to seeing you all Monday.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Principal, SCE

    Siler City Elementary School Families,

    Our Fall Fundraiser began two weeks ago and will end on September 20th.  After the sale is complete, items ordered should be delivered to the school at the end of October.  Please consider supporting our school by participating in our Fall Fundraiser.

    Morning drop off was smoother last week.  We appreciate all your efforts to follow directions and keep our kids safe.  We continue to work hard to find ways to keep the carpool line moving smoothly and efficiently, however.  One issue we have seen are cars parking in unassigned parking spaces.  Next week, we will be adding cones to spaces where cars often park that are not designated parking spaces.  Please make sure you park in designated parking spaces only at all times. Please do not park in areas where there are cones.

    Save the date for our annual Fall Festival which will be October 20th.  Watch for information in your student’s backpack closer to that date.  

    Also save the date for a 3rd grade informational meeting on our State’s Read to Achieve legislation.  The meeting will be held at our school on Sept. 25 from 5-6. This is for all 3rd grade parents.

    We will be holding our 5th grade Parent Night on Monday, September 18th, from 5:30 to 6:30.  4th grade Parent Night will be on Tuesday, September 19th from 5:30 to 6:30.  Please come out and learn about your child’s class and how you can support your child directly from your child’s teachers.  Please note that the 5th grade class with a substitute, Ms. Jean Purvis, will not be meeting on the evening of the 18th.  We will have a parent night for this class once your teacher has started teaching the class.

    Thank you to our SCE PTA for our staff breakfast this past Wednesday.  We all ‘felt the love.’  It takes a community to raise great children!  

    We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Larry Savage

    Principal, SCE
