Happy 2023 to you all! It's going to be a great year!
We are so excited to have our students back with us, back to the routine, and back to engaged learning. I hope you all had a great first week back. I have just a couple of updates for you.
First, just a reminder that Monday is a holiday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so there is no school. We return on Tuesday the 17th.
Second, we are printing out some new car signs for those of you who pick up at the end of the day and have told us you need a replacement. If you need a new car sign and don't receive one next week, please let us know. It is very important that you place the sign in your car passenger window (or dash) when you pick up, so we can get your student to you as easily as possible.  I'd also like to remind you to not arrive at school too early before school is out. Please come as close to 3:20/3:25 as you can. When you pull in, pull all the way forward so we don't leave big gaps. You many also park in designated parking spaces or park in the neighborhood and walk up if you're comfortable doing so. Safety is our #1 priority, so please be cautious when pulling out after you have your student. Thank you for your help with this.
Last, I wanted to let you know about an event we have coming up on February 2nd. Emerald Heights Winter Art Walk. We are proud of our commitment to art here at EM. We invite you to join us for an evening strolling through our student art galleries. This even is free for all students and their families. I have attached the flyer to this email, a paper copy is coming home with your student, and it is also on our website.
