Coal City Elementary School: Week of September 18th
What am amazing week we had the Elementary School with all of our Grandparents and Special Guests. The students had an amazing time showing everyone around and we received some really nice comments about the day. I want to thank our teachers and the office staff, Anne and Alison for all their help with pulling off Grandparents Week. In the end I think we had close to 600 guests in the building over the three days.
This coming week we will be practicing our Armed Intruder drill with the Coal City Police Department. We also will have our Erin's Law presentation. Information about both of these events has been emailed to the families but please give us a call should you have any other questions.
Reminder: Wednesday, September 20th is the first Bike To School Day.
On Thursday we are having NFL Day. The students can wear their NFL gear or team colors and pay a $1.00 to wear a hat.
We appreciate you letting the teachers know when you will be picking your children up early from school. We ask that you also let the office know. Then we can help to make sure your child is ready to go when you arrive.
Thanks to all of you for making sure the students are not arriving too early to school.
The doors to the building open at 7:55.
Have a great weekend! See everyone Monday.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures
DOORS OPEN AT 7:55
Remember W. Second Street is a one way street going east.
Drop off and pickup will be on the south side of the building on W. Second Street at Door #4. For the safety of all of the children that are being dropped off and picked up, please pull into the no parking zone (parallel to the road) and let your child exit the vehicle. We ask that you then exit the spot and pull
forward onto the street again.
Parents: Please do not exit your vehicle this year, as it will be a continuous drop and go lane.
Pickup will also be along W. Second Street. It will be a pick up and go as well. There will be no parking, so the first several cars will be pulling into the no parking zone and waiting until dismissal.
Parents: Please do not exit your vehicle this year, as it will be a continuous pick up and go lane.
We ask that the cars pull in and pull all the way up to the parking lot.
From there, cars will pull in as cars leave. Teachers will be out with their classrooms making sure that students are getting into their parents vehicle in a safe manner.
Students riding a bus to school get dropped off on the North side of the building. Staff is always visible when students enter and leave the building. If you need assistance with bussing, please contact the bus company: 815/634-0333.

Lockers & Cubbies
Students in the gold hallway (Egan, Friddle, Hamilton, Skubic, Smolik, Vironda, Watson, Wiltz)) will have lockers. Students in the green hallway (Bormet, Foley, Forkal, Hanley, Smith, Terrel) will have cubbies in their classroom.
Please have your child bring a full, labeled water bottle with them to school each day or to leave at school. We have two water bottle filling stations that will be utilized for refilling when necessary.
This year we will again be offering Music and Art all year long. The students will follow an ABCDE schedule with Physical Education every day and Art once a week for an hour and Music twice a week. Specials classes do not switch at the trimester.
