May 2021 Newsletter

A Message From Mr. Ruhl:


As the weather gets warmer Emmeline Cook Elementary students begin congregating before and after school, I want to make parents aware of the following policies to assure students are supervised and safe. 

This week please have a discussion with your children about the following points:

- Remind your children to come to the office if an after school pick up has not arrived.   

-Crossing guards will be available in the morning at 7:25 to support students crossing

-Students should arrive as close to their entry time as possible

-After school, families will have until 2:50 to pick up children, or for walkers to leave the school grounds.  Any students remaining on the grounds after 2:50 will be brought to the office and their pick up will be arranged. 

-If students wish to play on the playground after school they also have until 2:50 to leave the grounds or check in with parents. 

-If students return they are only welcome on the grass area to allow for safer supervision of Lighted School House

After school hours Lighted School House and other staff will not be expected to provide supervision of students after school.  It is the parent’s responsibility to either check in or pick up students.  As a parent myself, I know that events come up and miscommunication happens.  If such instances occur, please call the office at 424-0152 to notify staff so we can account for your child.  Again, the safety and security of your children are very important to our entire staff. 

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
