We are Elk Meadows Falcon LEADERS!
Mission: Create Learners and Leaders for Today and Tomorrow.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank You for being a part of Elk Meadows Elementary! We are very proud of our terrific school and truly work towards building Leaders and Learners for today and tomorrow.
The first day of school for our students was great! Teachers and staff worked tirelessly to prepare for our Back To School Night and eagerly anticipated the start of the school year.
If your children will not be attending Elk Meadows this year or if your plans to attend Elk Meadows change over the next few weeks, please contact the main office (801-446-3200) or send an email to our Head Administrative Assistant Brenda Tolman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let us know so we can plan accordingly.
The safety of our students is our first priority. All adults have been asked to wear badges so they can be easily identified. If you are visiting, please check-in at the front office and we will provide you with a visitor's badge. If you do not have a visitor's badge and are walking through the halls, you should be approached by employees who will remind you to check-in with the office.
Should you need to check your student out, you will need to provide the office with your picture I.D. We are committed to being hospitable and welcoming. We are also committed to the safety of everyone.
Drop Off and Pick Up
Attached is a diagram to remind you of the traffic patterns for drop-off/pick-up during peak times.
In addition, here are some points of clarification to help us be respectful, responsible, and safe in the parking lot:
- Cars are not allowed in the Bus Drop-Off Area on the East side of the school.
- Please have students try to use the curbside door of cars when you drop them off on the South Side of the school.
- Please drive your vehicle as far forward as you can in the drop-off lane before opening doors. The more cars we can fit on the curb, the more quickly we can get cars in and out.
- Please acknowledge and follow crossing guard staff and safety patrol as they cross students.
- Remind students that bicycles, scooters, and boards need to be walked while on campus grounds.
Thank you for keeping our parking lot safe and moving smoothly!
