School News & Announcements

This arts showcase is a ONE night event. Everything happens on 2/19 beginning at 6:00pm.

 


Connect to Kindergarten is Thursday, February 26th at 6:00pm.

If you have a student in the Capitol Hill Elementary attendance area who will be five by September 1, 2015, please join us at Capitol Hill to learn about our kindergarten program. You will hear from the teachers, our principal and our after school program. Registration paperwork will be available at this time. Childcare is not provided and the evening is geared to adults. Enrolled kindergarten students will be invited to visit the classrooms later in the spring. We look forward to seeing you.


DAILY DISMISSAL PROCEDURE: For your child’s emotional and physical safety please pick them up on time every day - no later than 2:15 PM.

Daily dismissal procedure at 2:15 PM:

 

Grades Kg. – 3: Parent pick up on the playground, under the undercover area. Bus riders will be escorted by their teachers to the busses after parent pick up.

 

Grades 4 & 5: Students who ride the bus will be released to go to busses at dismissal. 4th and 5th graders with younger siblings will go to the playground and join their younger sibling there for parent pick up. Students with parent pick up and who do not have younger siblings in grades K-3, will be escorted by their teachers to the front of the building and released to parents there. Parents need not wait in the main hallway to pick up their student at dismissal time. Early pick up (prior to 2:15 PM) still needs to be done through the school office. The playground is CLOSED until 6 PM to all except students enrolled in ExAcademy. Please DO NOT park across the street in St. Clare’s Catholic Church parking lot. It is private property and we do not have access to their parking lot for our parents. Students who are not picked up on time cannot be supervised by office staff. If you are unable to pick your student up at 2:15 PM daily please make arrangements for after school care through ExAcademy (on an availability basis) or with a private daycare provider.
