Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) News
Greetings EQ parents! Please consider joining us at our next gathering on Tuesday, November 27 at 6:00 PM. Come and share your ideas as we plan events and fundraisers for our school year! We are also looking for help with a number of our continuing programs including Box Tops (much can be completed from home) and Scholastic Book Fair.
You can always view our latest PAC minutes in the Get Involved area of our school website or by clicking here.
Also remember to save and send in your box tops as an easy way to help earn $ for Quinney!
Background Checks Timeline
Background checks which are older than 6 years old were removed from Infinite Campus this summer. These volunteers will need to complete another background check form to be considered for volunteering again. The process takes a minimum of two weeks, so if you are interested in chaperoning or volunteering, check early!
Picking Your Child Up Afterschool?
All children being picked up leave school via the playground blacktop area to meet parents/guardians. If your child is has a short wait for pick-up after school, we have the students wait near the picnic tables on the playground near the corner of the school where there will be supervision until 3:20 PM. In the event that you are late, for the safety of your child, the supervisor will bring them into the office so that you can be contacted.
Leaving for Appointments & Phone Calls During the Day
If your child has an appointment that requires them to leave during the school day, please include a note in the agenda planner. Having the information in the morning will help have your child ready in a timely manner when you arrive to pick them up. When you arrive to pick up your child, please come into the office to sign them out. Your child will be called down at that time, we do not allow students to wait in the lobby for their safety.
Your phone calls are important to us! When calling during the school day, please be aware that you may be transferred to the staff member's voicemail if it is during instructional time. We work hard to avoid interrupting instructional time if at all possible. If an immediate message is needed, please let the office staff know and that message will be delivered via note/in person to the staff member.
Thank you for understanding!
