Police Presence in our Parking Lot
We appreciate the increased police presence in our parking lot during arrival and dismissal lately. It is imperative that we follow all expected rules in our parking lot for the safety of our students, staff, and parents. It is also helps our bus drivers be able to safely enter and exit the lot as well as getting our students on and off the bus. Thank you for your cooperation with this.

At Stottlemyer we take building safety very seriously. As we get into the colder months we will begin our safety drills at school. At the preschool level this consists of practicing "stop, look, and listen" to follow teacher directions in case of an emergency. There is a PA announcement to "stop and look at your teachers and follow their directions". Then teachers have student practice a Simon Says type game where they "go touch the door" or "go touch the window" or "sit on the carpet". The most important part of this practice is getting students to stop playing and tune in to teacher directions as soon as they are asked. We practice this twice during the year.
In addition to our safety drills, we always have our doors closed and locked and we require all students and adults to be supervised while walking through the hallways. We ask for your cooperation to keep our students safe, by always checking in at the front office and never taking your child straight to their classroom door.
This week is very special for us because it's the week we dedicate to meeting with all of our families to talk about learning. By now you should have scheduled a conference with your teacher to meet on TUESDAY or THURSDAY this week to talk with your teacher. If you do not remember when your conference is, feel free to reach out to your teacher or call the main office.
This is a short week with only 2 days of classes before the Thanksgiving break. From everyone here at Stottlemyer we would like to wish you a joyous time of connection and rest with your family. We are thankful that you share your wonderful children with us every day and that you trust us with their growth and learning.
As we near Thanksgiving here at Stottlemyer, many of our teachers are thinking about the end of the first trimester. Very soon our staff will be reaching out to schedule conferences for the first week in December. Please remember to look out for communication from your teacher about the schedule so that you can pick a time when you can be here. Open communication about a student's learning between families and school is one of the best ways to support a child's growth. We want to work with you to find a time when you can meet with us to discuss your child's learning.
