Talk about it Tuesdays with your SRD’s 

Parents, I want to thank you for your help in making our traffic situation better! I know it is frustrating, but I know together we can make this a stress-free and efficient process! 

 

I’m sure you have all noticed the cones placed between the lanes turning into the pick-up loop. This was not to make things more difficult but we are trying to break the cycle so that we can make pick-up / drop-off more efficient. 

 

Many parents get in the turn lane and immediately go into the outside lane. I need you to stay in the inside lane. Think of it as any turn lane, maintain the lane you are in, changing lanes AFTER you complete the turn. 

 

Elementary parents and those wishing to drop their students off in front of the elementary school

-We are using the middle lane of Mill Bayou as a turn lane. Creating a 2 lane turn lane!  

 

-If you are planning on going into the outside lane of pickup, use the middle lane of Mill Bayou. This means you will not have to wait as long!! 

 

Check on facebook for a live video to help explain the changes. 

 

Thank you 

Deputy Bohac and Deputy Ford

Dress Like A Pirate Day Sept. 19

Students are allowed to dress like a pirate on Sept. 19th. No swords, knifes, or guns are permitted as part of the costume. If students choose not to dress up, school uniforms are required.

 

Approved Outer Wear

Remember students are not allowed to wear non-approved outerwear. As hot as it has been lately I can’t believe we’re talking about jackets, but classrooms are sometimes cool and students want a jacket or sweater. These items must be school approved. Students can also wear long-sleeved shirts under their polos, but right now that’s not a great option because they need to be able to take the long sleeves off when going to PE or recess.  We have a few jackets for sale in the clothes closet. Come in and check them out. Cool weather is on the horizon though, so go ahead and place your order at Zoghby’s or Tommy Hilfiger. Reach out to Mrs. Chapman or your child’s teacher if getting a jacket for your child will be a financial hardship for you. We understand that many of you are still working on recovery from Michael.

Car Rider/ Pick up Reminder

Parents just a reminder that during end of the day student pick up we ask that you do not show up early. 

 

We continue having problems with middle school parents showing up before 3:15. Starting this week, if a middle school parent is in line before 3:15, you will be asked to move to the parking lot or move through, as you are blocking traffic and holding up the process. Again, middle school parents please do not show up until after 3:15. We also ask that you have a conversation with your 3rd-12th grade child to get to the student pick up area immediately after the end of the day bell and pay attention. If any car is waiting more than 2 minutes we will ask you to move to the parking lot or go through. Again this is delay is causing congestion into 390 and can't happen. So again I ask that you have a conversation with your child about being ready to go. Thank you for your help with this.

MEN-tor Program

NBH MEN-tors program is designed for a dad, or father figure, to be able to come to the school and volunteer for the day. Dads will be given a schedule that will allow them to spend time in their child’s classroom and special areas, along with helping in the lunch room and monitoring hallways. MEN-tors will also be given a free t-shirt and their picture taken with their child to be put on the recognition board. This is a great opportunity to get 8 volunteer hours completed.

Aftercare Parents

Please remind your students that electronics to include headphones, ipads, phones, and hand held games will not be allowed in aftercare.  This rule is in the registration packet that each parent has signed.  These items have become in the past a distraction, and causes many disruptions and security issues in our program.

Communication at NBHCA
Good communication is very important to us.  We use four main sources to communicate news. First, and most important is our website at 
bayhaven.org. It is here you will find teacher websites, email addresses, and the school calendar that is updated daily and includes all events.  The other forms of communication are weekly e-blasts, the North Bay Haven Charter Academy Facebook page, and Remind (messaging app).
