Les estoy pidiendo su ayuda con dejar y recoger a sus estudiantes. Yo se que tenemos espacios limitados para estacionarse cuando vienen a la escuela. El estacionamiento era cambiado durante la construcción de la escuela y por eso les pido que si pueden tener paciencia cuando están dejando y recogiendo a sus estudiantes.
Aprecio su cooperación en ayudarnos con la seguridad de los estudiantes durante estos tiempos más ocupados cuando están dejando y recogiendo los estudiantes.

I am asking for your help with student drop off and pick up here at George. I know that we have limited parking spots that are available to you when you come to the building. Our parking lot was changed during the construction project and I would like to ask for your help, understanding and most of all your patience when dropping off your student(s) in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon.
I appreciate your cooperation in helping us to keep students safe during the busy times of the day as students are getting dropped off and picked up from school.
We are looking for a couple of parents/guardians to serve as president and secretary on our Parent Volunteer Committee (PVC). We will be meeting on the second Tuesday of every month at 3:15 pm in the library. Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12th. Child care will be provided. If you are interested in filling one of these positions or are curious about the PVC come join us on the 12th.
George Parents and Families,
In addition to Mr. Boyd's message and the introduction of the SafeSchool's Alert reporting system, I would like to share with you a little bit about school safety here at George Elementary. Each month we conduct a safety drill. These drills are outlined in the district safety plan and provide us with the opportunity to stay up to date with state and district requirments.
There is more to school safety however, than practicing emergency drills. We strive to provide a safe and welcoming school environment for our students. Our staff work hard to help students be safe and feel safe when they are here. There are times when there is an incident that happens between students and it is not observerd by school staff. When we are aware of them, we make sure to take the time to work with the students involved and take the necessary actions for the incident. I want you to know that when there is a problem between students here at school and we become aware of it, we will look into it and work with the students involved.
Sometimes there are incidents between students that school staff don't observe or are unaware of. If you as a parent or guardian are informed of an incident with your student at school or on the school bus, please contact the school and we will follow up right away. The new SafeSchools Alert will hopefully provide parents and students with a quick and easy process to report incidents.
In closing, I would like to share with you the definition of bullying that we use when addressing student incidents. Whether we determine if an incident is bullying or not based on this definition, we will make sure to take the time and work with students to get the matter settled.
Bullying is when one or more people hurt somebody's body, feelings, or even their things on purpose. Bullying actions usually happen over and over and over. Bullying is trying to have power over somebody.
If you have any questions about school safety, bullying or the SafeSchools Alert system, please contact us and we will be glad to answer your questions, and if we don't know, we will find out.
I would like to share a message with you from Mr. John Boyd, Superintendent of Schools.
In an ongoing effort to help ensure the safety of all of our students, the Quincy School District has introduced the use of a new reporting system that you can use to report incidents to the school. The SafeSchools Alert system i set up and avialable for use. There are five ways that the system can be utilized:
This reporting service allows you to easily report bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism, threats of violence, or any safety issue you are concerned about through SafeSchools Alert. When you submit a tip, be sure to use our distric's identification code: 1522 in your communication.
Every SafeSchools Alert that is received about our district is immediately logged in the system and our adminstration is notified so that they can investigate and take appropriate action. Tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.
Together, using SafeSchools Alert, we can make our district a safer place to work and learn!
