Marlow Monday Message, January 2nd, 2018

Good evening Glenn Marlow parents and students, this is John Hart with your Marlow Message on this Tuesday, January 2nd.  I hope all of you had a restful holiday break and a great start to 2018!!   Here is this week’s news and upcoming events:

-As the cold weather arrives and with winter now officially here, I wanted to remind everyone of our winter weather policies and procedures.  As soon as Henderson County has made a decision on school closing or delay as a result of inclement weather, you will receive an automated phone call from the Central Office stating that decision.  Other ways to receive information is to periodically check the HCPS website, join the Henderson County Public Schools Facebook page, or the HCPS Twitter site.  WLOS News 13 also runs updates, and has a free program that sends text messages out as soon as a decision is made.  You can visit the WLOS website to sign up to receive these text messages.

If inclement weather begins during the day, or if there is a threat of inclement weather during the day, an early dismissal may be called and school will close early.  Please remember that if school closes early for inclement weather, PSPM will also be closed.  If this happens, it is imperative that teachers and staff members know how your child will be getting home, if they are going home differently than normal.  It is imperative that you communicate with your child’s teacher about this. We want to ensure students travel home the correct way and arrive safely.  Please also have this discussion with your child as well.  You can avoid a lot of unwanted stress for everyone if we are all on the same page.  As well, we do not know what decision the Central Office will make until they send the automated call, so please avoid calling the school’s front office to ask about early dismissal.  We need to keep the phone lines open for any student dismissal changes that may occur. Thank you for your help with this.  If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to call the school.

-Just a reminder that our rescheduled Movie Night is coming up next Friday, January 12th.  Those that signed up for the December Movie are already registered for this Movie Night.   If you are already signed up and now unable to make it, OR you need an additional form to sign up for next Friday night, please contact your teacher or Ms. Carly Owenby in First grade, and we will get it corrected.

Thank you for all that you do, and have a great week.
