Hi TCE Families,
I wanted to send out just a few reminders about safety when our children are going to and from school each day. Please remember that we try to get traffic through as quickly as possible each morning and afternoon, but we ask that you are patient and courteous with staff, parents and students as safety is our priority. Also, please see our latest family design challenge as we move into spring!
We have teachers on TCE campus grounds each morning and afternoon on duty in order to help our students and parents stay safe by using our crosswalks. Please help us to teach our children to be safe and follow the rules by using the crosswalks designated in the front and back loops at all times. We have a sidewalk that prevents students from having to cross the staff parking lot as well, and we ask that this is used at all times.
Watch Your Speed and
No Cell Phone Usage
Please make sure that you are driving slowly through our school zone as well as through our front and back loops or parking lots. We have many students and parents walking and crossing and want to make sure you are always watching for their safety.
Also, it is a Texas state law that no cell phones are used when driving through a school zone as well as when dropping off or picking up your children. We ask that you focus all of your attention on driving safely during drop off and dismissal times.
No Parking Areas
There are certain areas in our school parking lot as well as our loops that are specifically designated as No Parking areas. You should never park in any of our fire lanes which are the front loop and the cafeteria loop areas. This also includes leaving your car unattended to run into the school to drop off or pick up your child or an item. You must always use the designated parking lots.
There are also no parking signs on the curbs in the front parking lot of our school. This is because no cars should be parking behind a parked car, as this has caused accidents in the past as well as it is a safety concern for individuals coming and going from the school.
Flower/Plant Family Design Challenge
For our next design challenge. . .we invite your kiddos to showcase their creative and innovative ideas with ideas for spring! Your child may create any kind of flower/plant using various types of materials (no real flowers or plants please) for us to display on our front bulletin board or library at TCE! These can be done as a family or individually. You may start sending your designed flowers/plants in this week and we will end our challenge on Friday, March 11th at 8:00am!
