Bullard Bulldog Weekly Newsletter   |  September 16, 2022 

Important Dates
 Sept. 20- Zaxby's night
 Sept. 26-30 Fall break no school
 Oct. 14- Movie night 6:00 (Bus Port)
 Oct. 17 Early release day 12:30 dismissal
 Oct. 18-21 Conference Week 12:30 dismissal
 Oct. 22 Beautification Day 8-11

Important Information to know:

We have made a change to the front door as an added safety precaution. With that, it is important for you to make sure you park and walk with your student if you arrive after the 7:50 bell.  This is needed, even if it is 7:51 as there are no adults still on duty and the front door will not be open.  Once you ring the bell and are granted access, you'll be able to sign your child in and they will be sent to class with a tardy pass.  
 
Conference week is coming next month.  Conferences will be held face to face and are a chance for you to get to know how your student performed academically and behaviorally during the first quarter of the school year.  The week of Oct. 17-21 is designated as a county-wide conference week and as such we will have early release at 12:30 every day that week to allow for teachers to plan (Monday) and to hold 20 min conferences for every student in their class Tuesday-Friday.  Your classroom teachers will post the link with their schedules for conference week in CTLS Friday, September 23.  During conference week, PTSA will sponsor the Scholastic Book Fair in the media center.  When you come for your students conference, you will have a chance to browse and shop.  Stay tuned for the full hours of operation.

Principal's Message

 

School safety is our highest priority, which means that much of what we do every day revolves around ensuring that our campus is a safe place for students and staff.
In order to make sure everyone is ready and prepared, we conduct a variety of school-wide safety drills regularly. These drills include fire, tornado, and a number of different shelter-in-place scenarios. Due to safety protocols and based on recommendations from public safety personnel, with a focus on keeping your children as safe as possible, we do not announce drills in advance and do not send after-action reports.
We evaluate our procedures regularly with our local school officers to ensure the best safety procedures and practices are in place. Your continued support is appreciated, as we do all we can to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

I hope by now you have gotten a chance to get to know each of your teachers and have a great form of two-way communication going with them.  From my classroom visits and reading the CTLS posts, I can already tell that this year will be full of active learning engagement in fun ways. Anytime you have a positive affirmation, question or concern, please contact your teachers as soon as possible as they are your first line of communication.  I want to encourage you to always keep the lines of communication open with your teachers as we work collaboratively to ensure that all of our students have the BEST year!

This school year, we celebrate 20 years of being the BEST!  In the coming weeks, Mrs. Guthrie, our assistant principal, will begin short lessons and book readings on the morning news as she recognizes Bullard's BEST students and staff. Students and staff can be nominated by anyone as they are seen demonstrating Bullard's BEST behavior. Being the BEST means:

Be Respectful

Express Kindness

Show Leadership

Take Responsibility      

Teachers use the language of BEST throughout classroom lessons and various activities.  Around the building you will find posters that describe what BEST means in the hallway, lunchroom, restrooms, etc.  We invite you to use the language of Bullard's BEST as you talk with your students about school each day.

We will begin allowing lunch visitors on Monday, 8/22.  When you arrive to have lunch with your student, please sign in to the front office, place your visitor's badge on in a visible location and wait in the front lobby for your class. In an effort to ensure that we have enough room at tables for students, all visitors sit at the tables on the stage with their student.  Extra friends from the class will not be permitted to sit on the stage.  At the end of the lunch block, students will line up with their class to exit the lunchroom with their teachers and visitors return to the front office to check out.  Please note that Monday is an early release day and lunch times are altered.  Contact your teacher for the updated times.  
 
If you use the carline see the following practices, procedures and codes from Cobb County School District and Cobb County Police Department guidelines: vehicles that need to park, must be legally parked in a parking space, handicapped spaces are for those with a proper tag, refrain from lining up for afternoon carpool in the emergency/fire lane prior to 1:30, smoking is prohibited on school grounds, refrain from idling while waiting in the carpool line due to the hazardous fumes released.  
OCGA 40-6-226(b)(1)- It shall be unlawful for any person to stop, stand, or park any vehicle in a parking place for persons with disabilities except for the purpose of allowing a disabled person to enter or get out of such vehicle while in such parking place.  Any person violating this code section shall be subject to a fine not less than $100.00 and not more than $500.
Sec. 118-216. - Prohibited parking, standing; violations.
No person shall stand or park a vehicle (other than an authorized emergency vehicle), whether occupied or not, except momentarily to pick up or discharge a passenger or passengers:
(a) Within 20 feet of a fire hydrant;
(b) Within 20 feet of a fire department connection (FDC); or
(c) In a fire lane.

All of these codes are in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all.  We are very fortunate to have Officer Norah with us during carline and throughout the school day.  Your efforts to create a safe environment for all students and staff are greatly appreciated.
 

Principal's Message
 
We are so excited to have visitors in the building for lunch and will soon begin the Watch DOGS volunteering program.  As grade levels move into more curriculum and begin grade level activities, we will offer more opportunities for volunteers in the building.  To ensure the safety of our students, we ask that the enrolling adults, check ParentVUE to update the list of release to and student contact.  Our front office staff will check I.D.'s prior to a visitor being given access to a class for lunch. Updates to your list of contacts and phone numbers can be made at anytime through ParentVUE.

Important Information to know:

Early student checkout ends at 1:40 pm.  
 
The carline typically ends by 2:40 pm.  Students who are not picked up are checked into ASP at 2:45 pm.
 
August 22 is our first early release day.  We will begin dismissal at 12:30 with buses, followed by cars, daycare vans and ASP will run as normal until 6:00 pm.  Send a note to your teacher if you are changing your student from their normal transportation home that day.
 
Make sure there is money on your student's lunch account as there is a charge this year for breakfast and lunch.  The easiest way to manage that account is 
MyPaymentsPlus.com.  You can also use that site to make adjustments to dietary needs and to indicate which extras, such as, chips, drinks, ice cream, that your student is allowed to purchase.  All students go through the serving line at lunch, even if they have packed a lunch from home.  This allows them to put money on their accounts, purchase extra items to go with their lunch or to get a cup for water.  If you pack lunch, please be sure to include utensils.  Contact our cafeteria manager, Karen Nuccio, if you need assistance.

Home/School Connection Tips for Success
 
So far this year I'm sure you've heard all of us ask you to help us foster independence in our students by staying in the carline and letting students get out of the cars on their own.  We've also asked that you only walk them inside if they are tardy or you need to speak with someone in the front office or clinic.  Do you wonder why and how this impacts the success of your student?  As we jump right into our work with teaching and student learning, we want to get our students able to attend to whole and small group instruction as well as work independently and collaboratively with their peers.  Students being independent also builds their self-confidence which is another factor in school success.  As parents, you play the most important role in helping us get students there as you encourage and teach that independence.  We are so very excited to be able to have a more normal school year full of hands on and engaging lessons.  Together we will ensure that our students are successful.

Principal's Message

Thank you for helping us use two lanes when entering the carline.  Please note that those two lanes merge into one lane right before the playground and we appreciate you following the courtesy of turn taking when merging.  As we work to foster independence in our students, we ask that you stay in the carline and let your students out on the sidewalk in front of the school.  For the safety of our staff and students, only park to walk students in if you need to speak with someone in the clinic or front office.


Important Information to know:

Students walk to class without parents starting Monday, August 8, 2022.  At 7:50 am, the tardy bell rings and the Bullard staff members on car duty return to the building.  If you arrive after the 7:50 tardy bell, park and come inside the front office to sign your child into school.  They will be given a tardy pass and sent to class.  Following this procedure allows us to have adequate adult supervision and account for every student each day.

Enrolling parents are able to update student contact information in ParentVUE.  That system will be used by our staff to verify student check outs, access to students during lunch and communication with teachers.  Please check your account to make sure we have the most up to date and accurate information.
 
 You are welcome to celebrate your student's birthday with classroom treats that will be passed out during lunch. Coordinate the celebrations with your classroom teacher.  As a convenience, our cafeteria offers treat options that can you can order using the following link 
https://www.cobbk12.org/foodservices/page/47979/classroom-celebrations and by contacting our cafeteria manager, Karen Nuccio.  She can be reached by email karen.nuccio@cobbk12org or by phone (678) 594-8720.

The front office is the heartbeat of every school.  During the first week of school, that heartbeat is working overtime to ensure that teachers have what they need in their classrooms, that students are scheduled into the right classes and that families know where to go and what to provide for student success.  The Bullard front office staff show that they are the BEST each day but more importantly this first week of the school year!
