Dear Aromas Parent(s)/Guardian(s),
In an effort to address staff and community concerns in regard to safety on our beautiful Aromas campus, we will be implementing some new policies and procedures as well as reinforcing those processes already in place starting next Monday, January 23rd.
Campus supervision begins on site at 7:30 a.m. in the cafeteria. That is the only location students are supervised so it is important that ALL students report to the cafeteria in the morning. If you wish to escort your child(ren) to the cafeteria in the morning and stay until they are taken out to the playground area at 8:00 a.m., you may do so, but there should be no parents/students in the classroom hallway areas in the morning. At 8:00, ALL students will be escorted out to the playground area, including kindergartners, and will be picked up by their teachers in the designated areas after the first bell rings at 8:10 a.m. Students arriving after 8:00 a.m. need to report directly to the playground area.
Most of the gates located near the front of the school which have previously been open will now be closed. The main gate to the office on Vega Street will remain open, but the gate near the kindergarten playground will be locked. The gates to the 1st grade wing and the library wing will also be locked. Students should NOT be dropped off on Vega Street. Please drop your child(ren) off in the designated drop-off zone in the parking lot on Carpenteria. The gate located off the teacher’s parking lot will also be locked so all foot traffic will be directed through the main gate by the gym or through the office.
For dismissal, the main gate by the gym will be opened when the bell rings at 2:45 p.m. For our early-bird kinders who are dismissed at 1:40 p.m., parents will be asked to wait in the office until dismissal time. It is important that all students get picked up on time every day…please remember that every Wednesday is early dismissal for everyone at 1:15 p.m.
Our wonderful Aromas staff thanks you for your patience and understanding as we endeavor to improve the safety for everyone on campus. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Principal, Aromas School
