Important Announcements from Dr. Wilson, Principal

posted Sep 18, 2017, 6:14 PM by Denise Mitchell

This is Dr. Wilson, your principal  with several school announcements and updates from the first seven days of school:

This year you can complete the required Military Service/Impact Aid survey online using your phone or computer. The survey takes less than a minute to complete and no longer than 5 minutes if you are in the military or work on federal property, and it will help Chesterfield make sure it has the funding necessary for your children to receive a world-class education. All parents must complete this confidential survey by Friday, September 22, even if you are not in the military or employed on federal property.  Please check your email and spam folders for a message from me (Dr. Wilson) with a link to the survey and additional information. You may also access the survey by visiting the CCPS Website. Paper copies are available in the school office and on the CCPS website. 

The first seven days have been filled with lots of routines, procedures, introductions, and learning!  We can’t wait to share some of the activities with you at Back to School Night on September 28, 2017.  Join us for grades 1-5 @6:00 pm.  

We’ve been able to get almost all of our kids to and from school without any major delays.  But, because we are being extra careful and safe, we need your help with some slight changes to the parent pick-up procedures and supervision.  Please make sure that you enter through door #4 by the cafeteria and the staff will direct you to sit and wait until your child arrives at their table to be signed out.  We’d now like for you to also complete a Pick-Up form listing those family member that are able to pick-up your child.  We can then check to see that they are on the list, check their ID and have them initial that they are picking up your child.  Then you will exit through door #3.  Please make sure that any changes to your child’s regular transportation plan are made in writing with a note to the teacher.  We will NOT accept phone calls for changes after 2:00 pm and we will NOT get students off the bus for changes made after 2:30 pm in the afternoons.

I know this is a lot of information.  I’ll promise to keep the weekly messages shorter and ask that you please visit our school website each week to stay informed!  Bensley Website

Thanks for your support!
