Dear Parents,
Welcome back to Louise Davy Trahan Elementary School. I am looking forward to an educational, safe, and fun year. I hope everyone is well-rested and had a fantastic summer break! School starts on August 28th at 8:45 am. We have a long Labor Day weekend from Friday, August 30th through Monday, September 2nd. The school will resume on Tuesday, September 3rd.

A few reminders when entering the building, please stop at the office to receive a visitor badge. Safety being a priority, please do not hold doors open while entering the building, even if you know the person behind you. All staff and students are being trained as well. You will also notice a new set of secured doors in the building just outside the office area. This will limit access to the classroom area of the building.

For the students dismissed as pick up, parents will sign out their children in the cafeteria. All adults involved in picking your children need to be on the student’s pick up list. If your child needs to be dismissed in a manner other than their norm, a written note needs to be provided to the teacher. We can not take a verbal statement from a child regarding their dismissal. We want everyone to arrive and leave safely. We will be reviewing pick up and drop off processes throughout the year.

The first PAC meeting will take place on September 4th, 6:30 pm at the Heath Brook school. Open House is September 11th, time to be determined. PAC will be hosting a playground social on August 20th from 6-7:30 pm at the Trahan Playground. We hope to see you there!

To better assist in communication, I will be using “Remind”, a text messaging application to send short notices to parents. The communication comes to your phone via a text message. The following are the directions to sign up for the notices:

text @bfb74f to the number 81010
or
open your web browser and go to rmd.at/bfb74f
You’ll receive a welcome text from “Remind”.

Thank you,

Jay Harding
Principal
