The text of this evening's robo-call - August 5, 2015

Hello Marshall families,

Tomorrow is the big day! The 2015-2016 school year begins at Marshall School on Thursday morning, August 6th, at 8:35.  We've got lots of important first-day information for you this evening, so please stay on the line for the next couple of minutes to find out all about what's going on at Marshall during the first couple days of school.

First of all, new kindergarten parents, don't forget, your child will be released from school early tomorrow at 12:25.  If your child rides FUSD transportation home from school, kindergarten-parents are encouraged to follow the bus to your child's stop and meet them there.

All other Marshall students, in first through fifth grade, will be dismissed at 3:20 on Thursday, the first day of school.

Parents please remember: unless students are enrolled in the before-school FACTS program, they are not to arrive at school before 8:20 in the morning when the cafeteria opens for breakfast and supervised playtime on the playground becomes available. Also, please remember: students who arrive at school after the second bell at 8:40 will be marked as tardy.

Parents, please remember, if you drive your child to school, please always park in the lots across the street and have your children cross the street to the school via our well-tended crosswalks.  Drivers can and will be ticketed by Flagstaff Police for dropping students off in the red zones on both sides of Bonito Street.  Also please be aware, road construction on Bonito Street between Aspen and Cherry has closed that section of the road to through-traffic.

Finally, please keep in mind that Marshall students will be released at 12:25 on Friday, August 7, and every Friday throughout the school year, and must be picked up at that time or enrolled in after-school FACTS if they don't ride FUSD transportation home.  If you care to make arrangements for your student to attend FACTS after school during the week, information is available online at and in the school office all year long.  Scholarships for FACTS are available to qualifying families on a limited basis.

Thanks for listening everybody.  As always, if you missed any portion of this message, the text is available on our Facebook page and on the school blog:

See you in the morning!
