Pequenakonck Elementary School

Dear PQ Families: I am so looking forward to our first day of school! The smiles are the best on this day and we are here to help those who might not be quite ready! It is going to be a great year!

PQ Family Open House is TOMORROW - Wednesday, September 3rd from 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Be sure to bring your school supplies when you come to visit! The front doors will open at 3:00 pm.

Please remember to place a name tag on kindergarten, first and second grade students during the first two weeks of school. It is most helpful when approaching a lost child to call them by their name and know their teacher and bus number. Thank you for the help.

Dismissal Procedures for 14-15 School Year: It is imperative for students to arrive at school with notes about their after school transportation needs. In order that children do not miss instructional time or worry about what they are doing after school, PLEASE send your child into school WITH a note stating what they are doing after school.

Parent Pick-Up will be in the gym at the end of each day beginning at 2:55 pm. Parents should enter the gym directly from the door in the parking lot. All children going to Parent Pick-Up MUST have a note indicating who will be picking up the child.

A PERMANENT PICKUP note will be honored when the parent/guardian has provided a written note to create this arrangement. Please indicate exactly what days the child will be picked up on a permanent basis and who the adult(s) is who will be picking up. Children will receive a color-coded tag for their backpacks as to which day(s) they are permanent pick-ups. Thus, a parent may arrange for their child to be picked-up for all 5 school days, or any combination of days, provided this has been indicated in advance.

See you tomorrow!
Mrs. Johnson
