Greetings Icard Elementary,


What a great week we have had!  I want to shout out a BIG thank you to all parents and guardians who came out this week to support your child for “Bring a Parent to P.E. Week.” We had more than 60 parents participate! I would also like to thank the Peacock family for the fabulous decorations they have added to the front of our building.


Here are just a few reminders for the upcoming week:

1.     Your student’s instructional day runs from 8:00 A.M. until 2:45 P.M. Please DO NOT CHECK your student out after 2:00 P.M. unless it is ABSOLUTELY necessary because of a doctor or dentist appointment or family emergency.  Your child is being instructed until the end of the day.  If you are checking out your child for reasons other than what is ABSOLUTELY necessary, YOU are shortchanging him or her. 

2.     The second fill day for the fundraiser will be Thursday, October 11.  This is a change from what was previously stated.  Please DO NOT send in envelopes until Thursday, October 11.  Holding off until Thursday will help avert confusion as to how orders are filled. THANK ALL OF YOU for the HARD WORK you have put into making this fundraiser a success. Please be mindful that all demo books need to be returned on October 15, the final day of our sale. Several students have already returned the demo books. Some of the demo books have been used to fill orders.  A record has been kept of this.

3.     For safety reasons, ALL afternoon car riders need to be picked up in the appropriate line. We complete the bulk of the car rider line within 15 minutes of the first loading.  If you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact the office, and we will make appropriate accommodations.  Again, PLEASE think of the safety of ALL students. 

4.     THANK YOU for your patience as we have transitioned to having two buses.  Make sure that your student knows how he or she needs to get home in the afternoon. 

5.      Fall pictures will be taken on Thursday, October 11.  Please be sure to fill out the pre-order form before then.

6.     Friday, October 12 is a teacher workday.  Students will NOT report to school on Friday.


As always, thank you for the support you continuously give to Icard Elementary!


Jeanene Burris, Principal
