Principal's Welcome Back Message
Dear Emerson Families,
Wow, can you believe that summer break is almost over? How time flies! All of us at Emerson are getting into the groove and are so excited for the school year to begin. We can’t wait to see students filling our hallways and classrooms!
Emerson has established several priorities and goals for this school year. We are continuing our work as a professional learning community (PLC) and teachers will be meeting in collaborative grade level teams to ensure that all students are learning at a high level. Our school improvement plan addresses the language development needs of our English language learners, and instructional practices and student learning in the areas of math and science. We are always striving to provide the best educational experience possible for our students.
In order to meet our goals, we need your continued support. Regular attendance is so important for student learning. Every minute a child is absent or late for school precious instructional time is lost. Every minute a child misses of school adds up to days of instructional time lost. We need every minute of the school day to address student learning! Please, have your child arrive at school on-time. Aside from illness, please be thoughtful about days your child stays home from school. We are counting on you to help us achieve our goals!
Enjoy the rest of your summer break. We look forward to seeing you on Monday, August 24th!
April M. Reynolds

As you are shopping for school clothes, please refer to district policy on inappropriate clothing at school. We have a limited supply of replacement clothing for the day, but would appreciate a double check before kids are scooted out the door.
The dress code: Clothing should be neat, clean, and appropriate for learning and weather conditions, and at no time should it cause a disruption to the learning environment. School administrators will determine consequences for students who violate the dress code and will provide appropriate due process. Parents may be called to bring the student a suitable change of clothing. Parents are also expected to observe the dress code whenever they are in the building.
The following would be considered in violation of the dress code:
• Clothing that is low enough to reveal a student’s underwear
• Clothing advertising drugs, alcohol, tobacco, acts of violence or lawlessness
