Welcome to Foose Elementary School

Hello Foose Families,

 

I am happy to be back for my second year as principal at Foose School!  We have been busy planning all summer to make this our best year yet!  This year we will continue some of the great things that have been happening at Foose: our monthly PBIS ticket events (pajama day, dance party, ice cream social, and dress up days), and our evening family events (literacy and math nights, Winter Wonderland, and spring concerts). This year we will also be challenging all of our students to become masters of sight words and math facts.  We’ll have individual and homeroom challenges all year to keep students competing and learning. 

We look forward to collaborating with you to provide learning and enrichment activities and events through the PTA and community partnerships.  Please look for additional communication throughout the year on our website, in the mail, on the Harrisburg School District Facebook page, and through the Global Call system.  If you have ideas or want to become more involved please give us a call or stop by!

Listed below are the entrance and dismissal procedures for Foose for this school year.  Families may walk their students to classrooms during the first week of school.  After that, students will walk by themselves.  There will be staff in the hallways directing students safely to classrooms.  If you need to speak directly to a staff member please contact the main office to make an appointment.

Entry Locations:  School starts for all students at 8:10am

  • Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students will enter through the main doors and go directly down the hallway to their classrooms (Door 1).

  • 3rd and 4th grade students will enter through cafeteria doors to go directly to their homeroom table for breakfast.  (Door 11).

  • Preschool students and parents will enter and exit through the door on 13th Street, closest to Sycamore Street (Door 6).

*Students must use the correct door for their grade level.  If older students drop off younger siblings, they must then go to their correct door.

*To keep our building safe and secure, parents are not permitted to walk their students to class.  If a parent wants to meet with the teacher, they should stop in the main office to make an appointment.

 

Dismissal Locations:  Students will be dismissed at 3:30

  • Kindergarten and 1st grade students will be dismissed from the cafeteria.  Parents/guardians will come into the cafeteria (through Door 11), and will have to sign students out with their child’s homeroom teacher.

  • 2nd grade students will be dismissed through the front, main doors.

  • 3rd and 4th grade students will be dismissed through the side doors (Sycamore Street side – Door 5)

 

School starts on Monday, August 22, 2016 for all 1st through 4th graders.  Kindergarten parents and guardians will be notified of their child’s start date – either August 22nd or August 23rd. 

 

Sincerely,
