Pick up Playground Change for End of School Day Starts Today

As part of our new safety and security procedures, we have a new dismissal plan for parents who come on site to pick up students at the end of the day. 
We’ll be keeping the playground gates closed and asking parents to stay outside of the gates until the final bell of the day rings and students are dismissed. 
If you have been meeting your child at the classroom door at the end of the day, please consider making a new plan to meet in front of the school – the flagpole or the bench are great meeting spots. Thanks for your cooperation in this end of day change!
Reminder- Update your Child's Emergency Information Today!
Please help us keep your child safe by updating your child’s emergency information by Monday!
For your student’s safety, please verify your contact/emergency information online! You can verify your contact and emergency information online any time before September 17, 2018. Log in to Skyward Family Access, and verify your contact/emergency information.

You can review an FAQ document about the Online Student Information Verification Process here. All changes to contact and emergency information need to be made by September 17, 2018.
Contact with any questions about the Online Student Information Verification Process.

National PTA Art Contest!
Spend the summer to start thinking about the Art project!

Do you know about the PTA Reflections Art Contest? It’s an annual competition hosted by the PTA that goes up all the way to National level (starting at school level, then district, state and national).

Does your child love art and would like a chance to display and celebrate their work? Then consider participating in the PTA Reflections Art Contest!

The theme for the 2018/19 school year is Heroes Around Me (Entries are judged largely on interpretation of the theme). There are 6 categories to enter - visual arts, photography, music composition, literature, film and dance. Entries are to be 100% kid produced.

Would you like to know more about it?
All rules and more information are available at (please note – our district does not accept Visual Art 3D entries). Please make sure to read through the rules, as the format requirements are very specific.

This is just a little heads up, for next school year. Maybe your young artist would like to work on her/his project over the summer.

At Mead the art work will be collected at the end of October 2018. If you have questions, please email
