Winter Car Line Reminders
As winter weather approaches, here are a few reminders for Mallory drop off and pick up procedures:
*It is best to thaw frozen doors prior to arriving at school. If the passenger side door is frozen, please pull around to the south parking lot and walk your child to the front of the building. The staff will not pull on frozen doors. Children are not to exit on the driver's side of the vehicle.
*Children should get their backpack, mask, and coat ready as you enter the line. Children need to be ready to hop out quickly.
*Always pull your vehicle forward-all the way to the first staff member.
*Children are welcome to bring an umbrella or poncho for wet weather conditions.
*If we have an early release, we will follow the same procedures.
*PLEASE be sure anyone picking your child up are aware of the procedures.

Two questions we've been receiving lately are: how do we return items to school? And, how do we get our student's personal belongings from school. Both are good questions. First, beginning Monday April 20th families will be able to return student assignments, library books, etc to Mallory. A black tote will be placed in front of the school doors, under the awning from 8-3pm Monday - Friday. Clearly mark your student and teacher's name on the item so it is returned to the right place.
Second, Mallory student's personal items, including yearbooks, will be available for pick up May 4 -8th, from 8:00 - 3:00 in the FEMA building. Parents should park in the south parking lot and enter through the exterior FEMA doors. Teachers and staff will be available to assist. If you need additional assistance from the office or health room staff, please use the building main doors and an office staff member will be available to help.
Finally, Preschool families are invited to come to the preschool anytime between 8:00-3:00 May 4 & 5th to pick up their student's personal items. A photographer will also be on site to take student graduation pictures for interested families. A cap and gown will be made available. Photo packages are $5.00 and include a choice of either - 1 - 5x7, & 2 - 3x5s, or 1- 5x7, & 4 wallets. (exact cash or check only, please)
Unfortunately Gearing Up for Kindergarten has been cancelled due to the recent COVID-19 situation. The Kindergarten teachers have developed a website for future Kindergarten students and their families to review to access the same information that they would receive at the Gearing Up event.

Dallas Co R-1 School District recently hired two new Parent's as Teacher's Educators. They will begin reaching out to families at the end of the month to start home visits in October.

We are very excited to start a new year and to see all of the Mallory students. We'd like to help with the busyness of the new year by providing some information regarding Parent Pick Up.
