Principal’s Message: September 20, 2016
Hello, Santiago Hills families,
We hope you had a wonderful weekend. Thank you to the PTA for hosting the Movie Night on Friday! I enjoyed seeing all the families that attended, the yummy food, and the laughs provided by the Minions movie. It was a wonderful evening for all.
School Arrival and Dismissal
Just a quick reminder that only students and authorized volunteers are allowed on campus between 7:55am and 3:30pm.
- As a safety measure when students are present, we ask that parents remain off campus and allow their children to walk onto the campus. Please make arrangements in advance for a meeting place.
- Teachers provide supervision between 7:55am-8:10am and for 15 minutes after dismissal times. All students should be picked up at their dismissal time.
- Families with primary and upper grade pickup may wait at the lunch tables for the later dismissal, provided that students are in your care and supervision during that time.
Please follow all safety instructions outlined in our Santiago Hills Handbook, especially in the parking lot area.
- There is one lane for drop-off and pick-up. Please wait for the car in front of you to move forward before continuing through the parking lot.
- All pedestrians should cross at marked crossing areas only. The parking lot is not a safe place for crossing.
The safety of our students is a top priority and depends on each of us doing our part.
If you are delivering an item that your child has forgotten, please remember that we do not deliver items to classrooms during instructional time. Unless the item is essential, this is a wonderful opportunity to help our students learn responsibility by bringing the item the next day or at the next opportunity. If the item is essential, you may leave it in the designated box just past our front office clerk. Forgotten lunches may be left in the designated boxes at the lunch tables.

PTA Family Night Out: Pieology on Thursday, September 22
What’s for dinner on Thursday? How about Pieology at The Market Place? It’s a win-win for us all. Your family will get dinner without the clean-up and our PTA will get 20% of dine-in and take out sales when you show your flyer (attached below).

Looking for a treat to start your weekend? Front Porch Pops will be selling delicious dairy and non-dairy popsicle options after dismissalon Friday. Popsicles are $3 and 20% of sales go to our PTA.
