Meeker class lists and New Family and Kindergarten Orientation, Monday, Aug. 17

Meeker Elementary School Principal Steve Flynn wants families to know staff has had a busy summer getting the new building ready for your students.

“We are almost there,” he said, “but here’s some important information about activities for Monday, Aug. 17.”

  • Class lists will be posted Monday, August 17, at 8 a.m. You may come any time throughout the day on Monday until 4 p.m. to see who will be your child’s teacher and to sign up for our upcoming Mini-Conferences. Class lists will be posted in the southwest hallway, and the southwest door will be unlocked. Visitors will not be able to explore the building at this time, as we are not yet ready for guests.
  • Kindergarten and New Family Orientation will also be Monday, August 17, from 6- 7 p.m. This event is for students and families that are new to Meeker Elementary School. We will collect any necessary paperwork from families, present information in the gymnasium, and allow families to take a building tour.
  • Guidelines for parking and building access on Monday, Aug. 17. For all activities on Monday, Aug. 17—and probably for the start of the school year as well—we will NOT have on-site parking. There is NO parking in the bus lane south of the building. You MUST park on a side street (such as Burnett or Douglas) and access the building using the sidewalk that runs along the south side of the building. The southwest door will be unlocked. Other doorways will remain locked. If this information changes  — and it can change suddenly as progress is made on sidewalks — we will send out an updated message.

Mr. Flynn said, “We ask that all visitors follow the guidelines listed above to assure safety and maintain order. Eventually all of the kinks will be worked out, and we will enjoy a beautiful new building! Until then, we are learning to be flexible and adjust on the run. We ask you to be flexible with us.”
