Letter from Principal Bonacquist, Feb. 12

Filed in Slingerlands by on February 12, 2021

Dear Families,

I wanted to share an update with you about my retirement.  I have decided to stay and finish out the year! This is my last extension – I promise! The interview process is still continuing as planned.  Interviews will begin in early March.  The parent representatives on the committee are our two PTO co-presidents Heather White and Betsy Danz.  Our hope is that I am able to work with the new principal to ensure a smooth transition.

Our kids had a great time in the snow today during recess and PE!  Check out the pictures!

I am extending the sign up day to February 12th.

Cars can enter the parking lot at 9:00.  We will begin letting cars through as soon as the buses are done, which is about 9:15.  If you are running a little late and do not see any staff member still out in the back, you may have to park and walk your child up to the front door and ring the bell.

Dismissal – 

Parents will be allowed in the parking lot at 2:55.  When the weather turns bad, we will likely back this time up again to as early as 2:45.

Bikers and walkers will be released at 3:15.

If it rains and your child will NOT be walking/riding, please contact the office and let us know.
