Concerns about Arrival Procedure

It has been brought to my attention that students are getting out of cars from the left side of vehicles and crossing between cars. Please keep in mind that our procedures are designed for students to exit vehicles on the right side and proceed to the school door.This is strictly a “Stop and Drop” process. If you need to exit the vehicle to assist or your child needs to exit from the left, I would respectfully ask that you park in a Visitor’s parking spot and walk your child into the building.

Thank you in advance for complying with this process as the safety of our students is always our top priority!

Upcoming Holiday Breaks

Dec. 22 – Jan. 1 Holiday Recess

Changes in dismissal

Please remember that any changes in dismissal must be submitted in writing. Please do not email your child’s classroom teacher with those messages. While in the classroom, instructing students, teachers do not regularly have the opportunity to check email.If plans change in the middle of the day, please call 333-5724.

Thank you!

Beginnning Monday: Modifed dismissal procedures for students picked up in the gym

12-15-17Dear parents and guardians,

Due to recent events, it has become necessary for us to modify our pick up procedures. Beginning Monday, you will be asked to sign your child out before leaving the building. This will enable us to ensure that every child is accounted for.
The safety of our students is always our top priority. Thank you in advance for your full cooperation.

Mrs. Lambert’s Retirement

Dear parents,It is with mixed feelings that I’m informing you of my January 2018 retirement. There are few things I enjoy more than teaching, and am grateful to have had the brief opportunity to teach your children.

Knowing Miss Patrizio will continue to teach your children strongly supported my decision, as I have seen how successful they are with her, and how much joy, enthusiasm and professionalism she brings to the class.

I look forward to returning to the Cumberland Schools as a Franklin Farm educator, and a Cumberland School Volunteer.

Thank you for your continued support of Miss Patrizio and your child’s classroom.
