FSU Elementary News and Notes

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this flyer about Pines 5K Run/Walk!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you so much for your patience last week. Just a friendly reminder of the rainy day policy that was sent to you earlier this year:

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.

In previous years that we had lightning strikes near school we were forced to suspend car line dismissal until it was safe.

Sometimes, we will move all car riders into the cafeteria on the south side of the school, allowing children and staff to remain indoors.

The procedure for dismissal would then be for the entire car line 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.

Thank you.

We would like to remind you that all volunteer/service hours are due by May 23, 2014. Each family in the Pembroke Pines Charter School system must complete 30 hours annually in order for their child(ren) to continue enrollment.

As a reminder, no more than 10 of those 30 hours can be earned in donations.

Thank you.



ADD $7 FOR PERSONALIZATION (TOTAL $32) deadline to personalize is 3/7/14 (no extensions :)

PRESALE DISCOUNT @ $25 through March 7th Pricing from 3/7/14 to 3/31 is $30 (personalization is not available after 3/7/14) A copy of last year’s book is available for preview in the office.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Just a reminder that the bus lane is closed after dismissal. If you are picking up your child from aftercare or an afterschool event, please enter through the Pembroke Shores entrance and park on the south side of the school. Please do not enter through the exit! Thank you so much for your cooperation!


The Pembroke Pines-Florida State University Charter Elementary School opened Parent Portal for FOCUS, our district school software, on September 24, 2013. Instructions to access this portal can be found here if you have not previously registered.

The FOCUS Parent Portal is a tool that allows parents to monitor their child’s progress in school by providing access to both assignments and grades that are entered by the teacher throughout the grading period.

Thank you!
