Dear Ready Springs Families,

It is with great pleasure that I partner with you and the amazing staff at Ready Springs School to foster a love of learning and growth this year with your child. As some of our returning families know we have some changes this year in staffing, me being one of them. Over the last ten years I have been part of the Penn Valley Union Elementary School District as a teacher, coach, and academic coach. As a member of the community, parent and now principal I am dedicated to the positive growth of our students’ academics, physical and social emotional well-being. This can truly be accomplished with dedication from all stakeholders. We are embracing the power of three; Family, Child, School. We are Stronger Together!

Class lists will be posted at the Ready Springs office by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 13th . Students should report to their assigned classrooms on the first day of school, Wednesday, August 14, 2019. School begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. The first day will be a minimum day and students in TK-3 rd will be released at 12:50 p.m. and 12:55 p.m. for 4th -8 th . On regular school days students in TK-3rd will be released at 2:45 p.m. and 2:50 p.m. for 4 th -8 th . Each Wednesday will be a minimum day schedule to allow for staff collaboration time and professional development.

Students may be dropped off on campus 15 minutes prior to the start of the school day. Please see our front office for Before/After School Care information if you need to drop your student off prior to 8:15 a.m. Students may not be dropped off prior to 8:15 a.m. due to safety and supervision.

Back to School Night will take place on Thursday, August 15, 2019. Information will be included in your student’s first day packet. Your first day of school packets will contain important paperwork to read and some items are required to be completed and returned to school.

In an effort to reduce paper many items such as the Student Handbook will be posted on our District website at www.pvuesd.org, please sign the agreement in your packet, and return it to your child’s teacher by Friday, August, 16th, 2019.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call the office at 432-1118 and we will be happy to assist you in any way we can. You are also welcome to e-mail me anytime at cmckeown@pvuesd.org. I look forward to partnering with you and your students throughout the school year.
