Hello Fryelands Families,

As we head into the final three weeks, I wanted to remind everyone that we are not done with school yet! Please continue those school routines with your child. We will be teaching until June 21st and we need your help in maintaining your child’s normal routines of reading and math practice at home, flashcard reviews, evening and morning schedules, getting to bed at a decent time, and following expected behaviors at school. Thanks for your continued support with this.

Appropriate Dress at School:
As the weather gets nicer outside, I want to remind parents and students of the appropriate dress at school. We have included an article in this newsletter and it is also within the Parent Handbook online. Thanks for helping our students follow these expectations.

As we near the end of the school year it seems that the number of students being tardy has increased. I need your help in making sure students are at school on time each day. Just missing the first few minutes of a day can be a big factor in a student’s success. We have many exciting things happening at this time of the year. Thanks for your help with eliminating tardiness.

Mark Your Calendar- The Fryelands All School Picnic is on Tuesday, May 31st
This is happening on the first day back from our long 4-day weekend. Bring a blanket and join us at the all school picnic, hopefully outside.

Parent Survey - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KPM2016Par
Thank you for the privilege of working with your family. Your partnership is very important to our students’ learning success and if we are to improve, we must hear your thoughts on how we are doing so please take a few minutes to complete our annual parent survey. We look forward to your feedback. This survey will close on Tuesday, May 31 so please take the survey at your earliest convenience.

Thank you for being partners with us in your child’s education. If you have questions or concerns, please contact me at presleyj@monroe.wednet.edu or at 360-804-3400.

We Want Our Kids to be Safe

There are 563 students attending Fryelands Elementary School.  That means there are potentially over 1,000 parents and/or guardians that come onto our campus on any given day.  In any system this large, it is paramount that everyone follow the safety procedures and systems that are in place.  Safety of your child and the other 562 students is our number one priority. 

There are 2 ways to drop off your child before school.

#1 Students may be dropped off in the front Drop Off Area near the building
#2 Parents may park their vehicle and walk with their child to the front door

The following are not approved methods of drop off:

  • Letting students out of your car in the middle of the parking lot traffic
  • Parking your car in the handicapped parking for a quick “drop off”

There are 3 ways to pick up your child after school.

 (Park your car and walk up to the flag pole to pick up your student)

(You may wait in line at the car drop/pick up area in your vehicle,
this takes no more than 15 minutes after school)

(Park your car and walk up to the fence to pick up your student at the North Gate)

The following are not approved methods of pick up:

  • Having your child walk to Tye Park to meet you
  • Waiting for your child in your parked car for them to come to you on or off campus
  • Picking up your child at the front doors or front crosswalk (please use flagpole area)
  • Waiting for your child at any location other than those listed above, including outside the classroom, out front by the office area, or in the hallways
  • Using the handicapped parking spaces, at any time to stop or park, unless displaying handicapped decal in window or on license plate
  • Walking up to car pick up (Door #3) to get your child
Your support and assistance with these guidelines and procedures is appreciated.  Staff have been directed to speak with anyone not following these procedures.  Please treat them with respect as they do their job.  Our goal is your child’s safety and that of each and every student at Fryelands.

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
