Busing

 

Please make sure you talk to your child about the safety zone for their bus stop. It is critical (and mandated by the Ohio Revised Code) that all students stand in their designated safety zone before they get on their bus and after they depart from their bus.

 

Thank you for your help keeping our children safe and secure at

North Elementary!

 

 

Safety Matters

  1. When visiting please do not open our doors or hold the door open for others walking up to our school. I know that we have all been trained that it is good manners to hold the door open for others, but in this case, please leave it to our discretion on who enters.  You are not being rude by doing this, you are helping to better ensure our safety.  Thank you!

 

  1. Please remind your child that bringing toys to school, especially those that are “weapon look alikes” is not permitted.  If your child brings anything to school that is or imitates a weapon (toy gun, knife, etc.), your child will be facing a 10 day suspension with a recommendation for expulsion. To some this may seem extreme, but as I am sure you can understand, zero tolerance in regards to weapons or “look-alikes” is a must.  As a parent of one of our young students, best prevention so this is a non-issue for your child would be to check the book bag daily before they come to school.  Thank you!
