Halloween Bash flyer

In the interest of preserving as much of the original spirit of this event as well as keeping our families safety in my mind, we have moved our venue to Bowers Farm (Winter Park Side).  There will be games, dancing, a Trick or treat trail, Wagon rides, donuts, and so much more!!! All food must be preordered and will be distributed by family/group. All those in attendance should also have a mask with them. While not required for outdoor activities, restroom access and some portions of the entertainment will be located indoors and everyone must be masked to enter.

There will be a cost increase for all responses submitted after October 20th. The final deadline for RSVPs will be October 27th,unfortunately, we can not accept any orders after that date. Please see this flyer for more details. We hope you will join us for this fun for the whole family event !!!!  Any  questions, please email Paulina Hakopian paulinahakopian@comcast.net.

GET invite

Lone Pine families have an open invitation to join our building Global Ed Team (GET). This is a learning group that meets monthly before school (virtually) to grow together in our commitment to being anti-racist. This is a low commitment group, participants are free to come when they can with no long-term obligation. There's no preparation needed before meetings, and no "to-do's" to be responsible for afterward.

Why join GET? We have some rich, thought provoking conversations on issues related to equity and inclusion, diversity, gender issues, ableism, ageism, anti-racist education and parenting, and more. Sometimes we read and discuss an article, or watch a short video and discuss, or examine building or district data to see what it tells us. We debrief what's happening at the district GET, share resources (for children and/or adults), and brainstorm ways we can make Lone Pine a more welcoming and inclusive environment for all students and families. If this sounds like a mission you can get behind, give GET a shot! 

Our first meeting of the year will be scheduled in early October. If you'd like to drop in and join us, email Dr. Hillberry at mhillberry@bloomfield.org and we'll send you the agenda and meeting link before the next meeting. We hope you'll join us!

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Arrival:

  • Student drop off will begin at 9:00AM for the AM. Do not let your child out of your vehicle until you see a staff member on duty in the car drop off line. Note that our goal is to prevent students from congregating in lines or crowds and expedite movement directly to classrooms.
  • Students arriving by bus or by car will circle around the back of the building to directly enter their classrooms from the playground. First and second graders will go around the preschool side, kindergarten and 3rd graders will go around the fine arts wing side. Parents may park and walk their children to the classroom door. Please be sure to mask up and practice social distancing should you pursue this option. And much as I'd love to see everyone's new puppy, please leave your furry friends at home if you plan to walk your child to their classroom. Classrooms will be marked, teachers will be waiting in the doorways, and staff will be on hand to assist students in finding the correct door. It would not be a bad idea to practice this routine with your child the weekend before school if you have a few minutes to do so.
  • Students will wash hands immediately upon entering the classroom. 

Dismissal:

  • Students riding the bus will exit their classrooms through the door to the playground, and walk around the school to the front of the building to board the bus. Staff will be on hand to supervise and assist. We'll be providing colored bracelets and back-pack tags to help students remember their assigned bus. Please do not remove the colored tag from the backpack.
  • Once bus riders have departed, classroom teachers will escort remaining students out through their classroom doors to the playground and walk them to the parking area behind the preschool (this will be blocked off--no parking) where they will wait until they are called to their family vehicle. If you choose to park and walk to greet your child, please wait for them in this area. Be sure to wear a mask and keep adequate social distance between yourself and others. Again, we ask that you do not bring a dog with you to greet your child.

We anticipate long waits in the pick-up line this year, please pack your patience and give yourself ample time, or if possible consider walking up to school to pick up your child.
