Dear Ron Russell Families,

Parent-Teacher Conferences:  Thank you to the 511 families who attended Parent-Teacher Conferences!  That is 59% of our families.  The three advisories that had the highest percentage of attendance (Mr. McNett, Ms. Wells, and Ms. Bland) won a special breakfast last Wednesday.  Spring Conferences are scheduled for February 28 and March 1, and I hope to see you all there.  

Student Safety-Traffic:  Please help me keep our children safe during drop-off and pick-up by following these traffic rules.  Thank you.

  • The lane in front of the school is for Buses Only from 7:50-8:30 Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays; 9:10-9:40 Wednesdays; and 2:30-3:15 everyday.  I know it is hard to see, but it is painted in the pavement and has always been there.  We have more buses than can fit in the lane, so we need all the space.  
  • I have created a drop-off and pick-up lane at the front of the school by taking parking away.  This change occurred last week.
  • Please do not do U-Turns on 112th Avenue.  
  • Please pull over to load and unload; do not stop in the middle of the street.  Even if you turn your hazard lights on it is still illegal because it is not an emergency, it is unsafe for our kids, and it blocks traffic.
  • If you are dropping your child off on the opposite side of the street, please tell them to walk down and use the crosswalk.  It is extremely dangerous for them to run across the street.

Quarter 2 Progress Reports:  It seems like December arrived quickly and is almost over already.  The last day of school before Winter Break  is Friday, December 15.  It is an Early Release Day for Quarter 2 Progress Reports.  This means that students are released at 11:20AM.  Expect Progress Reports in the mail by January 6.

The first day back is Tuesday, January 2, 2018.  

Best wishes to you over the Winter Break,

Thu Truong, Principal
