Dear Skyline Families,
back! It is hard to believe that summer
is over and a new school year has begun.
I hope everyone had a healthy and enjoyable summer. We had a wonderful
start to our 2015-16 school year! Thank
you so much for sending such wonderful children to Skyline. I have heard nothing but positive comments
from our teachers as to what a great group of students we have this year. This is, in large part, due to the wonderful
job you are all doing raising your children.
I look forward to getting to know all of our new students and their
parents. We will all work together this
year to make this a fantastic year for all of our students.
Back-to-School Night is next Thursday, September 3rd from 6:15 –
7:30 p.m. All Spanish-speaking parents
are invited to attend a presentation in Spanish at 5:45 p.m. I would ask that children do not attend
Back-to-School Night. This a time for
you to meet your child’s teacher. They will
share expectations and curriculum for the upcoming year. It is also a time to ask questions and
receive clarification on any issues for which you have concerns. We will
convene in the Activity Center at 6:15
p.m. I will introduce the teachers and
give a brief welcome. Following the
welcome, you will be invited to your child’s classroom. Thank you for consideration and cooperation
in this matter. Again, I am looking forward to meeting you all.
Skyline’s bell to go to the
playground rings at 8:35 a.m. Please
do not drop off students before 8:15 a.m. unless they have a scheduled morning
activity such as homework help, Student Council, newspaper club, etc. If students come before 8:35 a.m., they are
to wait in the quad area next to the flagpole.
There is no adult supervision until 8:35 a.m.
School is dismissed at
3:03. It is important for parents
picking up their children to be here on time.
If you are picking your student up in front of Skyline, we ask that you refrain from using your cell phone once the
students begin getting into cars.
Our teachers are out front helping the students safely get into their
cars, and it is important that our parents are paying attention to all of the
activity occurring at the front of the campus.
Our students have also been instructed that they are able to get into
the first three cars along the curb, but must wait until their car pulls up to
the front of the line if their car is in the second lane. Please do not call your children to come to
the car. Our staff will be happy to
assist them. Thank you for your support.
Drop Off/Pick Up:
I would like to thank all parents for doing such a great
job up on Dell Street. The local residents who live on and around Dell Street
have shared with me some of their concerns with parent pickup in the past.

stop in the middle of the traffic lanes.
2. Do not
use driveways or the middle of the street for U turns.

Trash cannot be
