Dear MSES Families,
 
Welcome back to school!  The children settled in nicely yesterday.  Second graders confidently found their classrooms and our “veteran” students were very helpful with escorting younger students who needed assistance.   Teachers are working with the children this week establishing classroom routines, helping children adjust to the school day schedule and familiarize themselves with the building and their instructional areas.  Please join us this Friday night at 6pm on our playground for the annual Back to School Picnic.  Pack a picnic dinner and bring a blanket.  Come reconnect with your MSES friends and make some new ones!
 
This correspondence contains important information to start off the school year.
 
Changes to Parent Pick Up
This year students will be called down for parent pick up to the cafeteria and sit by grade level at 2:50pm each day.  We will start dismissal at 2:55pm from the cafeteria.  Teachers on duty will call students by name for dismissal.  Parents are required to sign their child out each day.  Please sign or print legibly so we can see exactly who signed out each child.  This process may take longer during the first week of school while we implement a safer more efficient parent pick up dismissal routine.  If your child is not routinely picked up after school you must send in a note the morning that you will pick up your child so we can add the to the sign out list and be sure the teacher sends them down to the cafeteria at the end of the day.
 
Single-Sign-On Access to PowerSchool Letter
This letter was sent home yesterday (9/2).  Please look for it in your child’s backpack.  This access allows parent and guardians to set up a username and password to access all your students’ information.  The directions in the letter will assist parents in completing the Power Announcement preferences and update emergency contact information.
 
Emergency Cards
Emergency Cards (8 ˝ X 11” paper) were sent home yesterday (9/2).  Please make changes to the card and return to the school as soon as possible.  You are also asked to follow the directions on the PowerSchool letter to make any changes in the beginning and throughout the year.  We ask for a hard copy of this information in case our network is ever done.
 
If your child has daycare before or after school
If your child has daycare provided before or after school it is required that you fill out a “Daycare Transportation Request Form”.  This form can be found on the Grafton Public School website under Millbury Street Elementary School.  Scroll down to “Announcements” and the form is there for you to print and fill out.  Please complete and get to the office as soon as possible.  If your daycare situation changes throughout the year please complete this form again with changes.
 
 
Free &Reduced Lunch Forms
It is required that we provide each family with a Free & Reduced Lunch Form.  This form was sent home yesterday (9/2).  If you completed this form last year your will need to fill it out again for this school year and return it to the main office as soon as possible. 
 
Access to your child’s lunch account (My School Bucks)
This letter will be sent home by week’s end.  It will provide directions for setting up a “lunch account” for your child/children.  Once this account is set up you may add money to the account as needed. If you wish to add money to your child’s account as soon as possible, please send in a check payable to Grafton Public Schools Food Services.
 
Parking in Bus Lane (Driveway)
Please avoid parking in the school driveway between 8:00 – 8:25am and 2:40 – 3:15pm.  You will not be able to pass the buses while they are dropping off and picking up students.
