Things Are Happening At Collinsville Public Schools!
School System is so very proud of their new Early Childhood Center but
along with new buildings and additions comes change. Sometimes change
and learning new procedures can be difficult so we want to make parents
aware that there are some major changes at Herald Elementary and the procedures
of the new Early Childhood Center.
Please note that
the former bus loop south of the Herald building is now the new parent
drop-off and pick-up for cars. Cars may drive double wide through the
south loop with the left lane turning left and the right lane makinga
right turn. Herald bus students will use the new bus loop just north
of the building. No cars are allowed in the north bus loop at anytime.
Note: If Herald parents also have a younger child at the Early Childhood
Center, parents are to stay in the ECC parking lot and wait for their
Herald sibling to be walked across by a crossing guard. Those students
will be dismissed with the car riders at the 2nd bell which is at 3:15.
We are encouraging parents to have their child carpool or ride the bus
the first few afternoons because of possible congestion of traffic while
learning new procedures. We very much appreciate your patience in this
Center students will be dismissed to their parents at 11:00 a.m. for
morning Pre K students and 3:00 p.m. for all Kindergarten and afternoon
Pre K students. At this time, parents will park in the ECC parking lot
and students will be released to parents at the front entrance. We are
encouraging parents to carpool if possible or have their child ride
the bus. School will begin for Kindergarten students on Thursday, August
16 and Pre K students on Monday, August 20th
