Please take some time to browse our First Grade website. Each tab at the top has a drop down linking to more information. We work hard to keep the website up to date and often you can find answers to many of your questions by visiting the website.

Parent Volunteers

If you are interested in being a parent volunteer on campus this year and will be volunteering for more than 8 hours during this school year, you need to complete a TB assessment. You only need to complete this once every 4 years, so if you did it last year, we will have the record.

TB Assessment Opportunities are available on:

Mon 8/29 from 7:30-8:45 AM at Bay Laurel Lunch Tables

Tues 8/30 from 1:45-2:40 PM at Bay Laurel Lunch Tables

Thurs 9/1 from 7:30-8:45 AM and 1:45-3 PM at Round Meadow Front Side Ramp

Note that there is no longer a vaccination requirement for parent volunteers.

How we take lunch orders

This year, we will not have parents email lunch orders. Instead, all first grade teachers, when taking morning attendance, will ask students if they are getting hot lunch. Students will let the teacher know at that time if they are getting hot lunch. It would be helpful if you could remind your child on days that they are getting hot lunch to let the teacher know when attendance is taken.

Also, Wednesdays have a second option for pizza pack (like a Lunchable- not hot) and Fridays have a second option for yogurt parfait, so if they are choosing one of those on the appropriate day instead of the regular hot lunch item, they will need to tell the teacher. We do remind the students on those days that there are two options, but teachers may not know the specific regular hot lunch menu item the day of.

Carpool Line Reminders

  • First Grade teachers will accompany students out to the carpool line for the first couple weeks of school while they learn the routine and rules. It is very important that you are on time to pick up your students so they do not have to wait longer than necessary. After the first few weeks, students will be escorted out at the end of the day, but only the staff member on carpool duty will be out at carpool line. Please help follow the carpool rules so everyone can be picked up safely and quickly. Thank you!

  • Please do not wait at the classroom for your student or crowd the hallway as students exit. The front of the school is far more spacious and it will help kids get to their families quicker.

  • Carpool Line Reminder: Please help do your part and pull all the way forward in both morning and afternoon carpool line before having your child leave or enter your car. If cars ahead of you are about to move, please wait and pull forward to help the line move along. Often times in the morning, staff is unable to park due to parents either not pulling forward or just parking at the curb. IT IS NOT SAFE TO LET KIDS EXIT OR ENTER THE CAR WHILE AWAY FROM THE CURB. This is for the safety of everyone at school that we ask that you follow these carpool rules. Thank you for your support in following BL rules.
