          • Good morning, StingRAE Families.

            If you were early and on time today, thank you. We appreciate you making timeliness important. It makes a difference to how we start the day. 

            Unfortunately, this morning, we had over 60 students arrive late. When this happens, it causes a disruption to many classes. There was a lull in the car rider line from 7:25-7:35 which caused our car rider line to run longer. 

            As a reminder, we let students from the car rider line into the building at 7:25 a.m. This helps us get all students to their classes by 7:50, when the tardy bell rings.

            We must send in our Safety Patrol when the bell rings at 7:50 a.m. as they need to get to their classes. 

            If you arrive after the 7:50 a.m. bell and the sign reads "Oops! You Are Late. Please park and come inside with your child", parents must bring their child into the front office to sign them in. You may not drop your student off late without escorting them in once the sign has turned. 

            Target time is 7:45 a.m. This means that students who are walking or biking should arrive to the east or west gates by 7:45 a.m. and students who are in the car rider line should be entering the building around 7:45 a.m. The target time arrival ensures that students have time to walk to their classes and be in their seats ready to begin by 7:50 a.m. 

            We understand we are all coming off of Spring Break. Please take the time to "reset" with your families so that your children arrive to school early and on time.

            We will be assigning detentions for excessive tardies. While I understand that many elementary students depend on their parents to get them to school, I also believe that our students can help the adults in their lives by preparing their clothes ahead of time, listening to their parents' directions and guidance, and being ready to go. 

            Parents, I am respectfully requesting that you partner with me and our RAE Staff to make this a priority. Learning the value of time and how it impacts others around them and their individual success is important. With over 1,000 students, we need your help. 

            I believe you chose RAE for your child because of our high expectations of our students and each other. Let's work together to maintain a school of excellence that you and your children can be proud of attending.

          • Lunch room visitation will be allowed for:

            • Adults who are listed as PARENTS or GUARDIANS in the child's record; and
            • Adults who have a signed note from a PARENT or GUARDIAN that gives them permission to eat lunch with that child specifically on that day.

            Please remember we are a large campus with a lot of children and families. Our space in the cafeteria is limited. Please choose the times you decide to eat with your child sparingly. If the cafeteria begins to have problems with seating space, we will have to put more restrictions on our lunch room visitation.
