Sunday Minute – August 19, 2018
Good evening families, this is Mrs. Stevens, Principal of Topeka, home of the tigers, with this week’s Sunday Minute!
Monday, August 20th Closed Campus begins this week
For the safety of your child and all staff, this week begins our completely closed campus. Please prepare to drop your child off at the valet, or walk them to the gate. There will be staff at the Kinder gate to help them. Parents will NOT be permitted to enter the campus. After school the gates will re-open for pick-up.
Special thanks to the PTA for a great Kinder Social, New Parent Orientation, and Teacher Luncheon! We appreciate you all!
Parents please be sure to observe the ‘No Parking’ signs. It’s important to refrain from parking near the valet set up and the bus loading on Topeka Drive. Those zones are for loading and drop-off only.
