MESSAGES FROM SCHOOL:
Parents, when you receive a call from Birch Grove, please listen to your messages before calling the school back. There are often times where the teachers call from the classroom and the office is unaware of why they called you.
In the interest of preserving instructional time, we do not interrupt classes for deliveries or messages during class. However, we realize that there are times that parents need to get a missing class assignment or lunch to their children.
We have a plan for lunches in place; our campus monitors take the lunch to the cafeteria and deliver them to the students at lunch time.
For those other items (homework, backpacks, etc.) that you would appreciate being delivered to your child, we will place the item in your child’s teacher’s mailbox for them to pick up at recess or lunch.
Thank you for your understanding and helping us to make sure that instruction can go on uninterrupted during the day here at Birch Grove.
VISITOR PARKING AT SCHOOL
Please be respectful when you are parking in the parking lots at Birch Grove Primary and Birch Grove Intermediate. Many of the parking spaces are designated for the office staff and teachers and are not open for guest parking, even short term. If you are parking, be sure to only park in a non-designated spot no matter how long or short your visit.
Thank you for your cooperation
VISITORS AT SCHOOL:
All visitors to the Birch Grove School Campus’ must stop by the office and sign in during the school day! This is for your child’s safety as well as yours. In case of an emergency situation all need to be accounted for. The sign-in binder is in the office on the counter along with our ‘Apple’ visitor stickers. If you need to get something to your child, let the office staff help you. We will contact your child’s teacher to get the item to them. Please do not go directly to the classroom and disturb them while they are in session.
Students, if you ride your bike to school, please walk your bike on the sidewalk if there are many cars driving on the street. We want you to be safe as you come to school each day.
