A Message Regarding The Car Line
Students should arrive by 7:45; 1st bell. Tardy bell rings at 7:50.
If eating breakfast, they must be dropped off by 7:30 in order to be served in a timely manner and make it to class on time (bus students excused).
All students are encouraged to arrive on time. However, when arriving late a parent must walk them into the front office to be checked in. They should not be dropped to enter alone as there is no supervision or safety nets.
Carline starts at 2:45 and ends by 3:05. Please arrive on time and be sure to follow the traffic patterns. Road signs will be strictly enforced. (No left turn and do not enter.)
For safety, there is no pick up in front of the school. There is no park & pick up option.
Only cars in the carline with a school issued tag will be allowed to pick up.
All others (walkers) will need to wait and meet their children at the corner of the campus and Maple Avenue or someplace thereafter.
Having adults in the areas where we are dismissing students can be confusing and cause student mix ups.
Please do not cut the line or drive around. Student safety is at risk as student are being loaded into cars; at times on both sides. Again you must have a school issued car tag in order to retrieve students from the car end. The line is going a lot quicker now and you should not have to wait longer than 20 minutes.
Thank you for helping us keep your students safe and allowing us to get them into and off of the campus safely.
The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal
Parents can now access their student’s information from any computer with an internet connection. The MyPolkSchools Parent Portal allows parents to check current grades, obtain immunization status, learn if their child had any recorded discipline or attendance issues throughout the day, check their child’s current lunch account balance, and even see what their child purchased in the lunchroom – all before their child comes home from school.
Information on Cyber-Bullying
News from the Lunchroom!
Stephens Elementary will be participating in the Community Eligibility Option (CEO) pilot program, beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. This option will allow ALL of our students the opportunity to receive breakfasts and lunches at no charge without filling out an application that would normally be necessary to qualify for free or reduced meals.
- All students receive all meals at no charge. This increases participation by children in the school meal programs, while schools reduce labor costs and increase their federal revenues, allowing for a healthier student body and a healthier school meal budget.
- Paperwork for schools and families is dramatically reduced, because families no longer have to complete applications, and schools no longer have to certify individual student eligibility which also eliminates the verification process.
If you have any additional questions, please direct your questions to the School Nutrition Department by calling 863-534-0588.
