Drop off and pick up is on the North side of the building (closest to the water park). Parents will be given a car tag at the beginning of school. Parents or a responsible adult must show this car tag to the teacher. Please have your car tag visible for teachers and staff. If you do not have your card with you, you will be asked to go to the office to show ID so that we can verify that you are authorized to pick up the child.
School is from 7:40-2:55. We encourage all other students to arrive at school about 7:30 to give them time to unpack and get ready for the day before the tardy bell rings. Throughout the day there is a good blend of academic working time and center time. During academic learning time, the teacher teaches a lesson to the whole class or a small group of students. During center time, students are engaged in meaningful play activities that help foster creativity and exploration. Students also engage in P.E./Art/Music, lunch, recess and rest time throughout the day. We begin dismissing pre-k students at 2:50 each day.
Yes! We have a snack time each day. We encourage parents to provide a healthy snack and water bottle for their child to eat at snack time. Please do not send sugary items for snack such as cookies, cakes, candy, etc. No juices, teas, or other drinks for snack please. Please send the snack in a container your child can open and send any utensils your child may need. Remember to label everything with your child's name!
Students have rest time each day and they will be allowed to sleep or have quiet time. Your child does not have to nap at this time, but will be asked to stay calm and quiet for those that choose to. We will also send home blankets weekly to be washed at home.
At Rosemeade Elementary School, we try to incorporate technology into our lessons as much as possible. Check out our digital resources page to see all the ways Rosemeade uses technology in their learning. Digital Resources
Parents should practice with their child using the restroom independently, being able to spend time away from their primary caregiver, singing the ABC’s and counting, beginning to write their name, using 5 to 6 words in a sentence, and running and walking independently. Working on these skills will help prepare your child for pre-k. Don’t worry if your child has not mastered all of these skills. We will work on them in school as well.
