Dear Parent or Guardian,
I want to welcome you back to another amazing school year here at Charles Carroll School No. 46! Once again, we have many great things in store for your children as they grow and learn, look for my Monthly Newsletter to update you on important information.
Here are a few important pieces of information to support our school opening.
ARRIVAL & DISMISSAL:
School opens at 7:30 AM for those children eating breakfast only. Breakfast ends and the school day begins at 7:45 AM after which students are tardy and need to report to the office to obtain a pass. Please be sure that your child does not arrive to school prior to 7:30 AM, there is no adult supervision available before 7:30 AM. You will receive a Robo-Call to notify if your child was marked absent. Please contact our main office immediately to verify the absence.
Dismissal is at 3:00 PM on Monday through Friday. If you are picking up your child, please do not pick them up on Newcastle Rd. Children in Grades 2-6 are picked up at Exit 2, which is located on Dorchester Rd. Kindergarteners and 1st graders use Exit 9 (close to the playground). If you are in an emergency and running late, you will be asked to pick them up inside the building so that they can be properly signed out. If you are picking your son or daughter up from school early, please send a note in advance; be sure to sign them out in the Main Office and wait in the Main Office area until your child is dismissed. If you arrive after 2:45 PM, our dismissal process is already in progress and we will not be able to call your child down. It interrupts our dismissal operation and our goal of ensuring your child’s optimal safety.
Our Fall Meet n’ Greet is scheduled for September 14th from 5:00 PM -7:00 PM. This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know our school community. Our Open House/Curriculum Night is scheduled for October 3rd. We are super excited about several new initiatives including the Greater Rochester Health Foundation’s Healthy Future Initiative. We hope you can come out and learn all about our school programs and supports where we can also share about our exciting new Integrated Arts Program.
