ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
Parents – If you are picking up your child at the end of the day, you must stay in your car in the line and follow proper pick up protocols. A few parents have been parking, exiting their vehicle, and walking to the front of the school. This is only acceptable for those parents who have children with mobility needs.
Please reference the following document we details of the arrival and dismissal procedures for car riders, bus riders, and bikers.

BLOOMZ (CLASSROOM COMMUNICATION TOOL)
Our primary communication from classroom to home is via the Bloomz.
Invitation emails will be sent out later this week. These emails will be sent to the primary parent only (as listed in our Progress Book account). If you have any questions about access, please contact your child’s teacher.
Bloomz is a learning management app and website that provides teachers with a simple way to effectively communicate between school and home. From the dashboard, teachers can share information in a variety of ways by creating posts, events, activities, assignments, and photo albums. Parents can sign up to receive app, email, or text notifications, and teachers can control a wide variety of factors, including how parents and guardians communicate (for example, with each other or only with the teacher), what type of information goes out to families, and whether to communicate in a parent or guardian’s preferred language.
Among the site’s many features are helpful tools such as those to schedule parent-teacher conferences, request and organize volunteer help, or send out visual updates of student activities. Photo, video, and file sharing, including through Google Drive or Classroom, mean that teachers don’t have to spend a lot of time getting important information out to kids and their families.

COUNSELOR CORNER * MRS. AMY DILLER * AUGUST 2022
Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!
Whether it is your first, second or third year here at Depp, I am so happy to begin another school year alongside you and your family! I hope each of you were able to enjoy some of your favorite activities over the summer months and make some great memories.
There are many feelings that come with the start of a new school year. Some of us might be feeling excited, nervous, optimistic, curious or worried. Often it is a combination that fluctuates based on current circumstances and changes throughout the day. Talk to your child about all the different emotions they have felt over these first few days of school and share your feelings as well. Being intentional about this will help build your child’s emotional intelligence and reinforce that you are a safe person to go to when they need to talk about tough feelings or situations.
Below you will find a list of some books that might support the conversations you have regarding feelings about the start of a new school or new school year. All of the books are a part of the school counseling library if you ever want to check them out!
If you need to reach me at any time, my direct office phone number is 614-718-8923 and my email is [email protected]. I look forward to supporting your students during this school year.
