WELCOME TO FIRST GRADE!

FIRST GRADE SURVIVAL GUIDE AND GOOGLE DISMISSAL FORM

 

First Grade Survival Guide

 

The Night Before the first day of School

 

❏ Fill out the dismissal form on your child’s 1st grade teacher’s website. (Link located below)

It is CRUCIAL that your teacher knows where you plan on picking up your child after school. Parents are not allowed on campus during dismissal time and should remain out of the hallways.

 

There are 4 dismissal zones that you may choose to use:

1. Front of school (near flag pole and Office)

2. Carpool (parents must remain in their car)

3. Day care

4. Back gate (near day care, behind the back play structure) Parent must be present & standing at the gate to pick-up their child.

 

It is recommended that you park on the street and meet your child at the front of the school. Try to make the first couple of days the same so your teacher can dismiss your child with ease. If later you decide you want to switch to a different dismissal zone you may, but you must contact your child’s teacher via email or write a note.

Here’s how to fill out the Google Dismissal Form

● Head to https://mges-mdusd-ca.schoolloop.com

● Click on Grade Level--->1st Grade------>(your teacher’s name)

● Then click on the link for the Google Dismissal Form

 

❏ Pack a healthy snack!

Each day  your child will have a snack recess. This snack should be packed SEPARATELY from your child’s lunch. Show your child their snack before you put it in their tote bag so they can easily see and grab it at recess time. Keep it simple. A ziplock bag of crackers, fruit, granola bar, or yogurt are perfect snacks. Please no nut products!

 

❏ Lunch  

Pack your child’s lunch or remind them that they will be buying their lunch at school. Please do NOT pack any items that need to be reheated. 1st grade teachers and staff will help your child learn how to purchase their lunches the first few days of school. You can open a cafeteria fund on the MGE website (Staff-->Cafeteria) or you may also make payments for cafeteria lunches by going to the MUR before 11:00 AM and leaving a check, made payable to Monte Gardens with your students’ and teacher's name in the memo, and place in the School Lunch payment box
(big yellow box, located by the kitchen door).

 

❏ Make sure you have put your child’s full name on their:

1. Tote bag

2. Lunchbox & Thermos

3. Homework folder

4. Loose clothing (jackets, sweaters, etc.)


 

The Morning of the First Day of School

 

❏ Remind your child where you plan on picking them up!

1. Front of School

2. Carpool (Use only if you will remain in your car to pick up)

3. Day care

4. Back Gate

 

❏ Bring your school supplies on the first day of school. Please Do NOT label any items except for your child’s homework folder and tote bag (no backpacks).

 

❏ If you were unable to attend the Back-to-School Bonanza you must go directly to the office to get registered. They will give you your child’s teacher assignment and a card that notifies the teacher that you have registered in the office.

 

❏ Kids line up on the blacktop towards the back of the school in the morning. School begins promptly at 8:10 AM. Be sure to be in line before 8:10 AM. Their teacher will come out to greet them. Look for your teacher’s name or room number on the ground. First grade morning lines are near the carpool gate, on the basketball courts. **Please note: Parents may walk onto the campus and line up with their child for the first day of school only.

 

 

Please be sure follow this link  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfcX9sxmjN4V92bD6J4kh1xH1zz7LWF_2ORJTyWqh6DHUGfw/viewform  to provide me with the necessary information for the first day of school.

 

 

I'm looking forward to the First Day of School!

MONTE GARDENS' PICK UP & DROP OFF

Please make sure that you are following traffic laws and carpool procedures that are outlined in our Parent Handbook. Parents need to be respectful of our neighborhood and community while bringing students to school and modeling good citizenship for students.

 

  • Do not park in neighborhood driveways or block any section of driveways.
  • Do not move garbage cans to park, this causes neighbors to miss their garbage pickup.
  • Do not park in Sunrise/Shadelands staff parking or traffic circle to drop off or pickup.
  • Do not drop students off in street as this is dangerous.

To help with traffic, remember that supervision is provided starting at 7:45 am. and students may be dropped off then.

At Monte Gardens we work together, staff and parents, to help students succeed. Please continue to work with us and support our school by following procedures outlined above.
