Bogan Enews 9/8/23

School News and Information

Happy Friday! We had a great short week at Bogan! The students enjoyed a fun, interactive presentation from Goggin Ice Center today. 


Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

Thank you for adjusting to our new routine that was started on Thursday, September 7th, 2023. This change was designed to ensure the safety and efficiency of our dismissal process.


All three elementary schools (Bogan Elementary, Kramer Elementary, and Marshall Elementary) will dismiss vehicle/car riders at 3:05 p.m.  Bus riders and walkers will continue to follow their usual dismissal procedures, departing when the buses arrive and at their designated walker dismissal time, respectively.


We understand that consistency in school routines is important for both students and families. We have carefully considered this adjustment and believe that it strikes a balance between the need for instruction and the convenience of our dismissal process.


**Please make sure to display your orange card clearly for the names to be sent into the adults organizing and lining up the students.  In addition, once your name has been sent in, placing your orange card in your driver’s door window can help speed up the process at the rainbow colored cones.  For safety reasons, all students should enter the car on the driver’s side.  Students should not walk around the vehicle in the line. **

AM Drop Off

During drop off, we’ll utilize the two lanes and merge into one just past the first gate.  Our curbside crew will help to expand the length of sidewalk where you can allow your students to unload.  Students should unload from the driver’s side only. Please remain in your vehicle.  If your student needs assistance, a staff member can help.  Once your student has unloaded, you can feel free to carefully pass on the right folks who may be waiting for unloading assistance. Preschool parents, please make sure to pull up close to the front so preschool staff can assist your student.   

EZ Pay Link 

Do you need to add lunch money to your child’s account or pay school fees?  Please contact the office if you need your child’s student ID number.
