Kramer Enews 9/8/23


School News and Information

Happy Friday!  We hope you’ve had a great week.  


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.


If you need a card for your vehicle, please let us know.  We will be happy to provide you with a card for your dashboard.  If you can add the grade level of your car riders, that will help Mrs. Eckerle when she is calling out the names.
