FSU Elementary News and Notes

Dear Parents using the car line,

Our morning associates and volunteers are posted in our car line. If your child can open and close the car door on their own, we encourage them to do so as this speeds things up. If your child needs assistance (in the am) opening and closing the car door; we will assist. (Or if your car door is child-proofed) ----If this is the case, please place the “Assistance Needed” sign in your car windshield so staff knows to assist your car. You can obtain this sign from the office. (It is also attached to this e mail.


Our car line is very improved, yet additional assistance with the morning and afternoon car line would make things even faster. Earn service hours! Volunteers are always welcome and truly appreciated! If you are interested, you may stop by the front office any day. We would love to have you!


Please be aware that safety will always be our main concern. On rainy days with lightning strikes during dismissal in the immediate area of the school we may need to alter our dismissal. Sometimes we are forced to suspend car line dismissal until it is safe. If the lightning looks like it will quickly pass we will hold the dismissal for 10-15 minutes. If the lightning storm is constant we will move all car riders into the cafeteria on the south side of the school, allowing children and staff to remain indoors out of harm’s way.

The lightning day procedure for dismissal would then be for the entire carline to remain in line and to proceed (drive) to the front (South) of the school. This would allow staff safe shelter. We would then load the cars on the south side of the school in front of the main office.  In the most extreme situation of lightning, children would only be dismissed if the parent were to walk into the office to pick up the child. We ask that you please be patient on these lightning and rainy days.

Dear Parent or guardian:

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!  We want to share the answers to some questions we have received about the arrival and dismissal process.  Some of the procedures explained in this letter are the same as previous years, and some have been adjusted. We are happy with the faster process with our morning carline.  Each day we look at the logistics and try to improve and enhance them.  Safety will always be our number one concern.  Please note the following information regarding our arrival and dismissal process.


We are off to a great start. Please be patient with the afternoon carline this week.

We could use parent volunteers all week in the afternoon and morning with our carline. If you are interested, you may stop by the front office today and any other day. We would love to have you!

Please review the arrival and dismissal procedures which will be sent as an e mail and is always posted on the school website.

Thank you,
