You are probably aware by now about the Creepy/Killer Clown phenomenon that is taking over social media.  It started in the rural south in August and has now spread nationwide--and will more than likely be around until Halloween.  

 

Many of our students and families have seen news about sightings, school closures, and threats.  Although it is a joke/hoax this is scaring a lot of children.

Principal's Message

 

Dear FDR Families,

 

I want to welcome you to FDR.  It is going to be a very exciting year as we start to combine our two schools together.   We will have opportunities for you to participate in school wide events and we encourage you to attend our Fun Friday Community Gatherings the first Friday of every month.   Our newsletter will have important dates and things to know so please take the time to read the information so you are informed.  

By October, our information packets will be sent to you online on Wednesdays.   A phone message will be sent to remind you to check your e-mail or to go to our website to get the latest information.  

As we move into this new school year, I highly encourage you to connect with your child’s teacher early on if you have any questions or concerns.  Our goal at FDR is to ensure every child is safe and are being supported to achieve academic excellence.   Your support will help us reach our goal.  I look forward to meeting you at our Back-to-School night and at our Fun Friday events. 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Appell

Principal 

 


Welcome our new Assistant Principal

 

We are happy to welcome Mrs. Ashton who is coming from LAUSD.  She was a teacher for many years and has a wealth of knowledge that will really help support our families and staff.  You will have an opportunity to meet her at our Back To School Night and at our Fun Fridays.

This is a friendly reminder of the RAP dismissal time and locations. The RAP program operates Monday –Friday and dismisses at 5:45pm, every day. Students on scholarship must attend daily and remain for the entire duration of program. If you need to pick up your child before 5:45pm, please call (310)973-1300 ext. 57243. The RAP dismissal area is as follows: FDR- Please enter through Marine Ave., in the staff parking lot. Kit Carson- Please enter through Cerise Ave., in the staff parking lot. There is a bell located at each gate with a sign that reads, “RING FOR R.A.P”, please ring the bell for service. RAP students are NOT dismissed through the main office. We look forward to a wonderful year!

Thank You,

Elena Rodriguez

R.A.P Supervisor  

 

 


 

Arrival and Dismissal

 

If you have students at Carson and at FDR 3-5, your Carson student will stay at Carson and wait for their FDR sibling.  You will be able to pick both students up at Carson if they are not walking home. Please inform Carson if your child will be waiting for their FDR sibling.

I know how congested Yukon is before and after school. I would highly recommend that you walk your child to school.  This will decrease the traffic and make it much more pleasant for you. If you must drop off your child by car, the best time to do this is from 8:00 AM- 8:10 AM or at 8:25 AM.  Please remember that once the 8:30 AM bell rings, Gate V at Carson and Gate C  at FDR will be closed and your child will need to enter through the office and receive a tardy slip. 

Dismissal is another congested time.  I also recommend that you walk to school to pick up your child.  The busiest time is from 2:30 PM – 2:45 PM.  We have both schools dismissing students at the same time.  If you have a 3rd grade student and an upper grade student please pick up both students at 2:55 PM by Gate C at FDR.  We can no longer pay for after school supervision so please pick up your child by 2:45 PM at Carson and by 3:15 PM at FDR. 

 


 

News to Know

 

At FDR, we follow our district wellness policy.  Please see the district handbook for more information.  This includes no longer having birthday parties at school.  Therefore, parents should not send party favors, balloons, birthday cakes or food to the classroom.  Invitations to a home party should be mailed to your children’s friends and not distributed at school.

 

Please purchase a Birthday Book to honor your child on his or her birthday. You may dedicate the book to the class and have your child sign the book.   If you would like to know which book to purchase, please contact your child’s teacher and he/she will suggest possible titles.  The book will remain in the classroom library to honor your child for years to come.
