Parking Lot Safety –
ALL drivers are to be reminded that Zilwaukee staff believes safety comes first! Drive slowly and carefully around our school’s parking areas. Please DO NOT weave in and out of parked vehicles in the parking lot or walk between vehicles along the sidewalks with your children! WE need everyone to cross at the crosswalk when dropping off or picking up your children. If and/or when you are addressed by a staff member as a result of failing to adhere to our safety protocols and procedures, we ask that you refrain from using a disrespectful tone or profanity toward the staff. Please note that our main intent is to keep our students and parents safe as they exit into the parking lot.
· Park your vehicle in a parking space if you will be exiting your vehicle during arrival/dismissal.
· Refrain from leaving your car unattended in the drop-off/pick-up lanes as blocking the flow of traffic creates an extreme hazard.
· Refrain from parking in the area sectioned off with cones in the am or pm, as this is our crosswalk area.
ATTENDANCE IS KEY TO ACADEMIC SUCCESS!
Please have your children to school every day on time and ready to learn. The school day begins at 8:25 a.m. PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY ARRIVE PREPARED WITH THEIR BACKPACKS, PLANNER, AND NECESSARY SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR EVERY DAY SUCCESS (PENCILS, PAPER, and HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS).
Tardy students interrupt the learning of other children as well as miss important information. The tardy time frame in the morning is 8:30am-8:50am. Student arrival after 8:50am is a half-day absence. Early pick-up results in absences and tardies as well. The tardy time frame in the afternoon is 2:55pm-3:15pm. If your child leaves prior to 2:55pm, he/she will be marked as half day absent. Siblings who are taken from school early as a result of illness or doctor appointment for a sibling will be marked UNEXCUSED.
Zilwaukee School is a secure zone – Visitors to the classrooms must be pre-authorized and checked in through the office.
PTCC Meeting s– All meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm. Please come!
