Weekly Updates and Reminders

August 21, 2022 Weekly STAR Family Updates

Good afternoon STAR Families. This is Mrs. Traumuller, the Morehead Principal, with the updates and reminders for the weeks ahead! All back to school information including bell times, supply lists, lunch and transportation sign up links and information, as well as Open House information is found on our website.

We are pleased to announce that in a time of teacher shortages nation wide, Morehead is fully staffed! You should be hearing from your child's teacher no later than end of day on tomorrow, Monday, August 22nd.

Open House will be held on Wednesday, August 24th. The information about times for your family is on our school website. Please know that support with school supplies will be available as well as transportation staff with updated listings of times and locations of bus routes, and our fabulous PTA will be there to help your family sign up so that you can immediately become part of a group designed to make Morehead an even better school. Please remember to use this time as your time to take your classroom pictures for the beginning of the year as well as to bring your classroom supplies. We will have picture boards set up in the school building for great family fun and memories. Masks are also optional for this night, and we ask that the only pets in the building are service animals.

Lastly, school safety is a national and worldwide issue today. One way that we are trying to ensure that our school remains the safest for our students and staff is that all students enter the building in two different entrances. Each child will have to scan in by the kindergarten hallway if they are car riders or if they walk to school from the behind the school on Grendle Street. If your student is a bus rider or walk from the front of the school (Tower Road), the entrance with scan station will be in the front of the school by the bus loop. We ask that only parents or students who need assistance from the front office enter in the main hallway. If you are a returning student, this is nothing different than what we have done last year, but wanted to remind all of arrival procedures. Arrival time will begin at 7:20 am and stop at 7:45 am. If you are late to school, you will need to park and walk your student into the front office so that we can check them in. Dismissal time begins at 2:30 and will end by 2:50. Please note that we do not have staff to watch students after 2:50, so that you will need to be on time daily. All early check outs will stop at 2:15 pm as we will be busy as a school preparing for dismissal.

That is all that I have for you today. We are all excited about having everyone in the building for Open House and cannot wait to welcome you! Have a great evening.
