New Safety Protocols

We have made some changes to our safety protocols as we want to tighten security and insure safety for all at Medeiros.  We appreciate that all parents follow these protocols at all times. 

· Parents need to check into and check out of the office at all times when entering the campus to volunteer, accompanying a field trip, having lunch with their child, dropping off lunch and if picking up their child for any reason before school ends. 

· Parents and volunteers need to make sure that they have a visitor sticker or a volunteer badge at all times when on campus grounds. 

· During dismissal, we ask that anyone picking up children to wait by the flag pole and by the fences by the park or McKenna.  We do not want parents to wait by the classroom doors. 

· If anyone is roaming around campus, they will be referred to the office to check in and get a visitor badge. 


Character Counts!

This month the character trait is:


the desire not to cause inconvenience or hurt to others
