Fry Elementary School Weekly Announcements 1/28/19
Foxes love snow! Happy Snow Day!
We hope the kids get out and play while the temperatures permit! Enjoy!
Fry's Got Talent Changes:
The weather has not been kind to the Fry's Got Talent schedule! Today's (rescheduled) tryouts are cancelled. This means we need to also reschedule Wednesday's show! Stay tuned for more information! The show WILL go on!
School Closing Information:
With a wintry mix of weather in the forecast this week, we want to remind parents of the ways District 204 announces weather-related school closing information. The announcement is made by 6 a.m. through the following:
• Information is posted first by @ipsd204 on Twitter and at www.ipsd.org
• Connect-ED phone call to parents/guardians
• Emergency Closing Center's website
• Local television and radio stations
We will only announce when schools are closed. If schools are not closed, it is ultimately the responsibility of parents to decide if conditions safely allow for their children to attend school. If children are kept home due to weather conditions, parents must call the school to report the excused absence.
District 204 follows a plan whenever there is consideration of a school closing due to weather conditions. You can read more about how the district makes the decision to close school at Winter Weather Guidelines.
Please do not call the school office to ask if we are having school the following day. You will know about cancellations (via the above methods) the same time we do! Also, when school is closed, all elementary school related activities are normally cancelled that day and rescheduled as appropriate.
Students will bring home yearbook order forms this week. All orders are due Friday, Feb. 8th. This is the ONLY opportunity to order a yearbook this year. Yearbooks are sold by pre-order and delivered in May. We will not have any yearbooks for sale at the end of the year.
Car line pick-up:
Thank you for your patience as we work to call students out of the gym during extreme weather. Please help staff by displaying your car number clearly (bold print, full-size paper, right side up, etc.) the entire time you are in line.
The gym/number calling system is for car line families only. If you are choosing to park/walk/meet your child, please notify their teacher to dismiss them with the class as a walker. Thank you!
Lost & Found:
Fry’s Lost & Found items are collected/displayed in the front foyer. Please have your child check for missing items asap. Our collection is exceeding our space! We will donate remaining items Feb. 1st.
Parking on Grassmere:
There is no parking on Grassmere Dr. between the entrance/exit to the parking lot. Please do not park or pick up students in this area. Please park EAST of the pick-up line.
