First Day of School Information

Reported by on 8/19/21

Dear Patterson Community,

It's Here! The First day of school is Thursday, August 19, 2021!
We can't wait to see all our Priarie Dogs at Patterson. Please self certify your student in ParentVue before arrival.

Arrive to school between 8:50 and 9:05. Students should be fully masked, have self-certified, and can then enter the building immediately upon arrival at the nearest entrance. Students only in the building! Students should go straight to their classroom. No worries, we have plenty of adults on hand to help all our students find their classroom.

Here are a couple reminders to share with students for their first day:

Grades 1-5 arrive to the building and enter. Head to class or see an adult for assistance
Wear a mask and bring a spare!
Remember your lunch and water bottle
Bring your back pack even if it's empty - I bet you'll have something to take home!
Know your teacher's name (if not, know your own name and ask the first adult you see)
Know how you are getting home (walking, bike, bus, daycare, car pick up line).
For younger car riders, it may be helpful to put their car number on their back pack to help them remember it. All teachers have a copy of the car numbers for each family, so they will also assist
Kindergarten Orientation takes place on the first day.
Students arrive with 1 parent/guardian. Both should be masked.
Enter Door 11 at your designated time
​—Last Names A-F 9:15
Last Names G-M 10:30
Last Names N-Z 11:45
Bring supplies if you still have them
For fun - the "Welcome Priairie Dogs" sign in the front circle will be up through Friday for your enjoyment.

We can't wait to see you!!
