Dear Sharpsburg Primary Families,
I am delighted to share with you
that all students grades K-2 will begin classes in the modular classrooms this
Wednesday, October 2nd. Many students have already travelled over to the
rooms and are very excited to have their own comfortable
learning space. I cannot say enough about the resilience of our
students and staff, and I am grateful for your patience as we work through this
construction process. I have included some helpful items below as we
begin using the Primary side of the street again on Wednesday.
Students should not be dropped off or arrive prior to
8:15am. During arrival and dismissal times, the large gate will be open
for students to walk up to/from their modular classrooms. We ask that parents stay at the bottom of the
ramps when dropping off or picking up students.
During the school day, the large gate will remian locked and all
students are secure within our fence line, along with locked doors in the modular
classrooms. Safety always remains our #1 priority.
Any student arriving late, or being picked up early, will
need to enter through the small gate and proceed to the gray modular, which is
where the office is located.
The pickup and drop-off area in front of the primary on
Forest Avenue is for stop and go parking, and drivers are to remain in their
vehicles. If you wish to walk with your child to the entrance, you will
need to park elsewhere in the area and walk. You may not stop your vehicle on Forest Avenue for any reason, unless
in the pickup/drop-off zone. Again, safety should be everyone's
If your primary child has siblings across the street in
the elementary, I would encourage them to be picked up by their older
siblings and walk to the pickup area on Robertson Avenue behind the elementary
building. We have had great success utilizing that area behind the school
and it has kept traffic at a much safer volume.
you for your time and attention to this information. As always, feel free
to contact me with any questions or concerns!
Mr. Joe Westendorf
