Stilwell Announcements, September 17, 2014 Day 1


Parking Lot Safety

For the safety of our staff and students please slow down when you enter and exit the Stilwell parking lot.


Dismissal Info: Weather Related

With Iowa’s ever changing weather conditions, please discuss with your child a  contingency plan if activities are cancelled or there is early dismissal – please let your child know if they should get on the bus or wait for a parent.  


 Parents-Important to Note J

If your student is going to be leaving early from school, please send a note with your student and they can come into the office at 7:25 a.m. to get a pass to leave when needed. This helps so we do not have to call into a classroom and disrupt learning time.  If your student is coming in LATE, we do not answer phones during that time.  Please send a note with them.



Student Directory

 We are getting ready to put together our student directory.  If you do not wish for your child to be in the directory, please contact the office by phone 515-633-6000.  Please have your request in by September 19th.


Students auditioning for opus honor choir:

Make sure you sign up for a recording session for your audition this week.  Most of the auditions are going to take place before or after school.  If you need to go later in the afternoon then what is on the sign-up sheet, please make arrangements with Mrs. Gedler. The sign-up sheet is outside the chorus room.  Please make note of the time you signed up.
