Hollymead Families and Friends,
Just a quick reminder that the first day of school is tomorrow and classes will begin at 7:55 am!
Please be sure to allow plenty of time to get your child(ren) to school and be patient as there
will likely be delays in the drop off lane in front of school.
Be sure to follow the directions of our crossing guards, watch out for children and use your
turning signal when you drive in to the school parking lot.
When school is dismissed at 2:30pm, please be sure to exercise caution in the parking lot and
follow the directions of our staff members who are in charge of routing students to where
they need to be at the end of the day. DO not pass cars in the pickup lane! This creates an
unsafe situation for our students and staff.
Also, remember that school buses will be running late in the afternoon so if your child’s bus
does not appear at the designated time, don’t worry! They usually run 10-15 minutes late
the first few days of school.
Finally a few other tips/info:
Lunch – Parents can send in cash or a check for lunch money. Make checks payable to
Hollymead Cafeteria. Also, please put your child’s first AND last name in the memo section
of the check. If you send in a zip lock baggie with cash, label it with your child’s first
and last name too. Our cafeteria manager will greatly appreciate this
Lunch Times, fyi:
Forms – Be sure to send in your child’s dismissal forms as soon as possible.
The school office staff needs this information to create dismissal plans for students.
Helping Hands – We have a wonderful fleet of PTO volunteers that will be on-hand in
the morning and afternoon to help get children where they need to be. You do not
have to walk your children to their classrooms as they will be on hand to help!
If you would like to walk your child to his/her class, you need to come to
the main office of the school, sign in and get a visitor’s sticker. Be sure that
you bring a drivers license with you as you will need it to log in to the computer
When you leave school, stop by the office and a staff member will sign you out.
We are very excited to start another year at Hollymead and we welcome our
new and returning students!
If you have any questions or need assistance, please call the main office at
