Drop Off and Pick Up
As a reminder, third grade lines up on the blacktop next to the playground and we dismiss through the side doors on Belle Plaine. I ask that students do not leave until I have seen the person they will be going home with. Please be patient as it takes me a couple of weeks to learn all of the new faces!
Please note that last year CPS revised the procedures for volunteers and now requires ALL volunteers to complete an application. To maintain in compliance with CPS, Coonley will require that all volunteers (classroom, field trip, celebration, etc.) have completed an application and are approved by CPS. Please follow the link below to complete your application. You will need to complete an application as a 'Parent/Guardian Volunteer'. https://cpsparentu.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=319488&type=d
Once again, black folders will be coming home every other Wednesday. Please keep an eye out for your child's folder, remove all information distributed, and return them as soon as possible.
There is Parent Open House on Thursday, September 20th from 6:00-7:00 pm. I look forward to seeing you there and answering any questions you may have.
