WEST ELEMENTARY PARENT NEWS LETTER
Mrs. Ybarra, Principal
When dropping off your child for school, please pull over to the curb. Do not stop in the middle of the road to drop off children. (There is a space by the curb that is dedicated for drop off and pick up.) Please use crosswalks and set good examples for our children when crossing the street. Per the Mountain Home Police Department, fines can be up to $85.00 for violations.
THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO ARE DROPPING YOUR CHILDREN OFF ALONG THE CURBSIDE AND NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET.
PLAYGROUND BEFORE SCHOOL:
SCHOOL DOES NOT BEGIN UNTIL 8:25.
Thanks to all of those parents/guardians who do not drop/send their children onto school grounds before 8:00 am (unless he/she is eating breakfast from 7:55-8:15 am).
NOTICE: THERE IS NO SUPERVISION ON THE PLAYGROUND BEFORE 8:00 AM.
Please notify the office if your child is going to be absent, or if you have to pick up your child early from school. This is a safety issue, as well.
