Welcome Back!

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  We look forward to working hard to ensure that all Snow students achieve at high levels.

The first day of school is MONDAY, AUGUST 26, 2019.  It will be a half day of school for all students.  School begins at 8:35 AM and will end at 11:45 AM on the first day.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 27 will be a full day of school for students in grades 1st-5th.   School will begin at 8:35 AM (tardy bell at 8:40 AM) and end at 3:35 PM.  Kindergarten students will attend 8:35AM – 11:45PM the first week of school,  parents are responsible for pick-up on those half days.  They will attend full days beginning on September 4, 2019.  There is no school on August 30, 2019 and September 2, 2019 in honor of Labor Day.

I thank you in advance for getting your children to school on time and ready to learn.   For quick and easy communication, please subscribe to the Snow School blog for updated information about the school calendar at

We will be posting the class lists on the office windows facing Culver Street, adjacent to Door 1 by 9:00am on Saturday,  August 24, 2019.  Please be aware that we may need to make changes to your child’s class assignment after the school year begins due to situations beyond our control, such as late enrollments and/or teacher grade changes.

We are looking forward to another successful school year!

We are working to increase safety in the school parking lot.  If you drop off your child, please park in a parking spot and walk your child to the door.  If you are waiting in the drive up line, please stay in one lane and pull up to the first cone to allow for safety and efficiency.

All students should be lined up with their classes at the proper doors.  Teachers will greet students promptly at 8:30am. Students should not be at school without supervision before this time.  At 8:35am teachers will walk their classes into the school. The Pledge of Allegiance will be recited inside classrooms.

      Kindergarten:  Line up on blacktop on Culver Street, Door #1

Bus Riders (All grades): Lineup with class.  Students in grades 3-5 may enter Door 1 and proceed to their class lineup area on the Houston Street side.

 If it is raining or the wind chill is less than 20 degrees: Students enter the building through the lobby (Doors 1 and 10) at 8:25am and proceed to the gym to line up with their class.

All staff will be in the lineup areas, main lobby area, and hallways to assist parents and children as needed.  Class lists and signs will be posted on the main lobby windows.

Breakfast Program: Breakfast will be served in the cafeteria, 8:15am-8:30am.  At 8:30am, students will be directed to proceed to their lineup area.  Students may enter through the lobby doors (10) to get to the cafeteria.

Dismissal Procedures: We are working to increase security at Snow.  For safety reasons, we ask that parents remain outside at dismissal. If parents/guardians decide to pick up their child before 3:35pm, you will have to be buzzed in and sign in at the main office as doors will remain locked until 3:35pm Students will be escorted by their teacher to their exit doors (same as entry doors). Bus riders will be escorted to the bus and Kid’s Club by specially-trained 5th grade students serving as Safety Coordinators. If you need to get your child before dismissal, you will need to sign your child out in the main office.  

*If you have multiple children at Snow, please speak to your child’s teacher and/or the office and we will work together to develop an alternate plan so your children can dismiss from the same door. For safety reasons, we cannot dismiss students before the bell to pick up siblings in other areas of the school.
