Welcome back! We are very excited about the 2016-2017 school yearand to work with each of your children this year at Wright Elementary School. As always the first of the year is quite hectic and we want to make sure we are communicating as far in advance as possible.
Our office will be reopening on August 10th, so please call us or come by if you have any questions. We will be open from 8am until 3:30pm each day.
We also hope to see everyone at Meet the Teacher on Friday, August 19th between 5pm and 7pm.

First Week of School – August 22nd through August 26th
For the first week of schools parents will be allowed to escort students to their classrooms to help them drop off supplies and get settled. Parents will not be allowed upstairs until 7:15am and must leave by 7:55am so that students can begin their day.
Morning arrival will have some minor changes for the 2016 - 2017 school year. This year we will continue to have breakfast in the classroom which means that students will be eating in their classrooms from 7:20am to 7:40am. Breakfast is free to all students.
Students may not enter the building before 7:15am. At 7:15am the front doors will open and students may enter and go directly to their classrooms. Any student who arrives after 7:35am will need to be brought to the office by their parent to receive a tardy pass.
Dismissal will remain the same. Teachers will escort students outside between 2:30pm and 2:40pm to their designated area under the awning where parents may pick them up. Bus riders, day care students, and after care students will go to their designated areas and be escorted out.
If your student is being picked up by a friend or family member that is not the usual pickup person, please call to notify the office in the morning so we can ensure they are on your pick up list. Also if your student needs to change how they go home, please call the office or notify the teacher in writing so we can ensure they are dismissed appropriately.
Supply lists are updated and available on our website. We will provide many supplies for students, but ask parents to provide some additional supplies.
We are excited to have Karen Gilbert back as our parent facilitator this year! She will be here to assist parents and families in connecting with resources. If you have any needs for school supplies or uniforms please contact her beginning August 10th.
We look forward to seeing everyone again for the 2016 – 2017 school year!
