Rocky's Weekly Reminders

DECEMBER 17 2018 - JANUARY 4 2019

 

  • NO SCHOOL DECEMBER 19-January 2 for winter break
  • ATTENTION ALL FAMILIES:  Please be mindful of your speed on school grounds at all times. Please pay extra attention during drop-off and pick-up. Safety is a top priority as we have many students, parents, and faculty on foot in our parking lots. We appreciate your attention to this matter.
  • LOST AND FOUND - Please have your child/children check the lost and found.  We have quite a few items that need to be claimed. 
  • 100th DAY of school will be January 18th (if we have no snow days)
  • ATTENTION Car Rider and walker families: We have added 2 new crosswalks at the rear of the building. The crosswalks are adjacent to the curb along the awning, providing a safe walkway to the parking lot. They are marked by yellow signs attached to the awning poles. Please be mindful not to park  on the crosswalks. If your child is a walker, or if you utilize the rear parking lot during arrival or dismissal, please use the crosswalks. Safety is a top priority, and we want to make sure that all children and adults follow traffic and pick up guidelines.  Thank You!
  • Parent Social Media Guidelines:  Please be mindful when visiting the school or attending school events, during the school day, regarding photographs and videos of children not under your parental rights or custody. Some parents do not want their child exposed in social media outlets. Please be considerate regarding the inclusion of all individuals in the photograph before posting on social media. Please do not put any names or identifying information of children, other than your own, unless you feel you have permission and acceptance from the other children's parents. While FERPA does not control and general privacy laws do not apply to parents posting videos or photographs of other peoples' children online, we ask that you follow this respectful practice.
  • Make sure you are connected to Seesaw.  If you are not connected to your child in Seesaw, please email your child's teacher or julie.keyl@maryville-schools.org.
  • Maryville City Schools is putting a district-wide focus on digital citizenship. Foothills Elementary uses our "Tucker's Tech Tips" to remind students about smart digital use.  For resources to discuss this topic at home, go to https://www.commonsensemedia.org/.  It is an excellent and FREE resource for parents and teachers.  Thank you for helping us to teach our children how to be safe online.
