Teller Elementary is happy to announce a new “drop zone” for before school drop-offs.
Effective Monday January 30th, please drop students off on Jackson Street at the double gate to the play ground.
Please observe the following directions to ensure a safe and secure drop off for all students:
* Cars must be traveling south on Jackson St
* Please avoid Garfield Street if at all possible (see map for drop off approach paths.)
* Students should be on the passenger side of the vehicle and be prepared to jump out quickly upon arrival.
* Cars should stop only long enough to allow student(s) to safely exit the vehicle.
* Parent/adult/driver MUST remain in the vehicle.
* NO PARKING
* Cars exiting drop off should continue to 10th before turning west to avoid other school traffic.
Are you unsure if you need to fill out a CHOICE Application for your student? See below, or email Gabby at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It’s important to remember – if you “Choice Out” of your neighborhood school, you will lose your Neighborhood School priority! The school you are assigned through the Choice process becomes your new ‘Neighborhood School’ (see Gabby with questions).

During the week of Valentine’s Day (Feb. 13th-17th), Ms. Catrina will be entering the names of all students who get ‘hot lunch’ from the cafeteria into a drawing. She’ll draw names for a chance to win some awesome prizes! Ms. Catrina LOVES making healthy, tasty food for us, and we’d like to support her by increasing the number of students eating lunch in the lunchroom. She loves getting feedback on the food, so encourage your kiddos to let her know what works and what doesn’t, and remind them to eat HOT LUNCH on February 13th-February 17th!
Head and Heart Parents will be offering a 3-week class at Teller! This class is open to both Teller parents and other parents in the community.

Please keep in mind that space is limited!
