Great Things Happen at Stagecoach Elementary

Stagecoach News!

 
 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!


As principal of Stagecoach Elementary, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at Stagecoach. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcome, connected, and part of our Stagecoach family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities. At Stagecoach, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize research-based best practice and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement.  We believe that all students should reach their full potential and be at grade level in order to meet the demands of today’s ever-changing world.


We strongly encourage each family to download our Parent Square app. Much of our communication that will be sent home from the classroom, Stagecoach office and the Central Administration will be thru the Parent Square app. Stay tuned for more information on Open House!


I am honored to serve as the principal of Stagecoach Elementary. It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at (307)-352-3265 or at palaciosj@sw.k12.wy.us


Once again, welcome back! Let’s make it another great year at Stagecoach together.


Sincerely,


Jennifer Martin-Palacios


Stagecoach Principal




 

 

Our promise to you:

As a team, the Stagecoach Staff we will work hard to create a legacy of strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on social- emotional needs, character education initiatives, Common Core skills, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of teaching strategies to increase students’ achievement, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.


Attendance:

It is vital that your child is at school, but if your child is sick or has an appointment please call the office at (307) 352-3265 as early as possible in the day. If your child is marked as absent and we have not heard from you, we will call to verify their absence. If your child is gone due to a medical appointment, please bring a doctor’s note so that we can mark your absence properly. Once your student has missed 5 days, you will receive a letter notifying you. Those absences will then be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. ***If your child is sick please keep them home. If you student has symptoms of COVID please keep them home.  If your student has been exposed to COVID confirmed case please keep them home. ***


Checking Out Your Student:

If you would like to pick your student up early, please call the office no later than 3:00. The end of the day is very busy and students are preparing to go home, transitioning, and loading busses. This makes it very difficult to honor the request after 3:00.


Dropping off and picking up your student:

When dropping off your student, while staying in your vehicle, you can either pull to the crosswalk to drop off your K-2 students or pull all the way to the end of the sidewalk to let your 3rd-4th grade student out. Your student will get out of the car and go to the door for a temperature check. When picking up your student, while staying in your vehicle, please pull all the way to the end of the sidewalk and wait for your student. If you park in the parking lot, please use the crosswalk to cross the street and social distance while waiting for your student or you may stay in the parking lot make eye contact with the teacher and we will have your student cross the crosswalk to meet you. If your student is going home with a friend or if they are using a different mode of transportation for the day, your student MUST have a signed note from their guardian. We ask that you notify the student’s teacher and the front office in there is a change in your student’s transportation at the end of the day.


Weather:

Please dress your child for all types of weather. As you know weather can be very harsh in Wyoming and we will go outside in cold and windy weather. In the morning (when we can have outside recess) if the weather/temperature is too cold for students to be outside, we will place a sign out front stating that students need to come into the building. You will also be notified by Parent Square if you sign-up for the Parent Square app and add Stagecoach.



Volunteering:

We absolutely love having parents, grandparents and guardians in our building to be volunteers. However, at this time, until COVID guidelines change we will NOT be able to volunteers in building. With that said, we would still love your help with items at home that can be brought back. Please contact your homeroom teacher. When COVID guidelines change and we can have visitors in building, you will need to bring a valid ID to get a visitor pass.
