SAFETY MESSAGE
With the warm weather, snakes could be coming out of hibernation and these creatures will bite if provoked.  We remind our students to stay away from the bushes and shrubs.  Please also remind your students who are walking on Oviedo Street to stay clear of the shrubs as this can be a good hiding place. 
 
REMIND
Have you ever come to school and realized that you had forgotten that it was a school spirit day? Would you like to be reminded when there is an event happening at school? There is an app that allows Principal Ziegler to send out texts when there is a change in schedule, reminders or emergencies.  All you have to do is “Opt” in by sending a message to (434) 473-7316.  In the message box, type @allshe.  Follow the text prompt and you will start receiving messages.  Standard text message rates apply. 
TK INTEREST WAIT LIST INFORMATION
Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2017, who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, MUST place their name on a District Interest Wait List. After March 1, 2017 at 8:00 AM, go to the District Website and select "TK Interest Wait List" to put your child's name on the list. The assigned TK school site will notify parents on the Interest List starting in June, or later in the summer, of an opening in TK. The parent will then be given 48 hours to enroll. Due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK, please note space is very limited and will be determined on a first-come, first served basis.
