The text of today's ConnectEd phone call...

Hello Marshall families.

On behalf of our entire faculty and staff I'd like to say "welcome back to school" to everyone. We've got a few quick but important updates for you prior to the start of the year.

If you aren't following us on Facebook, you may not be aware that our 2012-2013 class lists are posted on the front windows of the school. Please come by and check them out when you have a chance. Sorry, but we're not able to publish these lists online.

Classes begin in just about a week and a half, on Monday, August 13 for all students. Monday the 13th will be a regular school day for everyone except our kindergarteners, who will be dismissed at 12:25 on Monday. Our bell schedule will remain the same this year. The first bell will ring at 8:35 and the tardy bell at 8:40 every morning. We will dismiss school at 3:20 Monday through Thursday and at 12:25 every Friday.

Be advised: there is a large construction project on Thorpe Rd west of the school which has rendered the roadway inaccessible. When dropping off your students at school, please enter our parking lot from the south and exit to the north. Attempting to do otherwise will cause traffic delays. And, as always, please remember: the bus lane is for buses only. Please don't drop students off in the bus lane during our hours of operation.

Finally, please know that we're very aware that some of our upper grade classes appear to be quite large at this time. We have every intention of reducing these class sizes shortly after the beginning of the school year, once we have an accurate accounting of our actual enrollment numbers. If your child is enrolled in one of these classes, please do not lose hope. We're very confident that we will be able to add the necessary teaching staff and reorganize our upper grade classes once we're able to determine that we must do so.  Thanks for being patient with us.
