Great Things Happen at Stagecoach Elementary

Stagecoach News!

 

Hello Stallions,

Thank you so much for such a successful first three months of drop-off and pick-up. We are officially at 9 minutes for pick-up!!!! In the morning we love opening doors and saying 'hi' to so many families. We might have to get doggie treats for all of our canine friends!

Morning:  All students will get to play and will have the opportunity to have breakfast once school has begun.
Drop-off:  Park in the parking lot, walk across the crosswalk and walk to the playground.
Kiss-in-Go:  Stay in your car, pull to the front where the greeters are, and greeters will open the door. The students will then go to the playground to play. At 8:05 our warning bell rings and the greeters will move closer to the crosswalk to open doors. This will allow for students to enter the front doors as we do not want anyone to get left on the playground. Greeters stay outside until the second bell rings at 8:10. If you arrive after 8:10 you will need to walk your child into the school and sign them in.
*please remember to use the crosswalk*


End of the day:
Pick-Up:  Please park in the parking lot, walk across the crosswalk, make contact with the teacher and take your child home.
Kiss-and-Go:  You will stay in your car and pull forward until the greeters open the door. The greeters will then open the door and your child will get in your car.  Once your child is in your car, pull forward and turn right. If you need to turn left, please park on the north side of Stagecoach and we will have a staff member help you cross the street safely.
Busses:  Busses leave promptly at 3:10. If busses run late, we will send out a Parent Square. 
***if you need to change how your student is getting home, please call by 2:30.***

 

 

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. ***

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.


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.
