    Hasta que se termine la construcción, la entrada principal se reubicara en el lado oeste de la escuela, más abajo en la calle Martinelli hacia la calle Virginia, y justo después de los salones portátiles.  En caso de que se pierda, habrá letreros en las vallas que apuntan hacia la entrada temporal. También puede acceder a la oficina a través de la parte trasera de la escuela a través de la calle Dolores.

    Por favor utilice el estacionamiento en la calle hasta que se termine la construcción. El estacionamiento trasero no será accesible para dejar a los estudiantes, recogerlos o para que los padres se estacionen.

    Carta de Bienvenidos

    9 de agosto de 2019

    Estimados padres o tutores:

    ¡Bienvenidos al año académico 2019-2020 de la comunidad de la escuela MacQuiddy Elementary School!  Mi nombre es Shelby Biddy, y estoy encantada de tener esta oportunidad de servir a los niños, padres, personal y los miembros de la comunidad de MacQuiddy Elementary como Directora.  Ha sido un placer conocer a cada miembro de la comunidad de la escuela primaria MacQuiddy hasta ahora.  Para todos los demás, tengo muchas ganas de conocerlos en mi oficina, en el patio de recreo o en el estacionamiento.  

    Hablando de eso, como habrá notado, el frente de nuestra escuela ha estado pasando por algunas renovaciones.  Pronto, la entrada de Martinelli Street a nuestra escuela contará con nuevas aceras, jardineras y árboles para saludar a los niños de la escuela primaria MacQuiddy.

    A mediados de septiembre, cuando se complete la construcción, la entrada a nuestra escuela será hermosa.

    Favor de utilizar el estacionamiento en la calle hasta que se termine la construcción.  El estacionamiento atrás de la escuela no será accesible para dejar a los estudiantes, recogerlos o para que  los padres se estacionen. 

    Para terminar, no podría estar más emocionado por este año escolar.  Creo que puedo hablar por todo el personal cuando digo que esperamos verlos a todos temprano el 14 de agosto a las 7:55 a.m. El desayuno estará disponible para todos los estudiantes a partir de las 7:30 a. m.  Además, recuerde marcar sus calendarios para la Noche de regreso a la escuela, el jueves, 29 de agosto a las 6:00 p. m. y el Te traje el jueves, 5 de septiembre a las 6:00 p. m.

    Si tiene alguna pregunta o comentario, comuníquese conmigo por correo electrónico, la línea telefónica de la oficina o en persona.  ¡Muchas gracias por su paciencia y apoyo!  

    Atentamente,

    Shelby Biddy, Directora

    Welcome to the 2019/20 School Year

    August 9, 2019
    MacQuiddy Elementary School Community, welcome to the 2019 - 2020 academic year! My name is Shelby Biddy and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the children, parents,
    staff, and community members of MacQuiddy Elementary as principal. To every member of the
    MacQuiddy Elementary School Community I have met so far, it has been a pleasure. To everyone else, I am so looking forwarding to meeting you in my office, on the playground, or in the parking lot.
    Speaking of which, as you might have noticed, the front of our school has been going through some renovations. Soon, the Martinelli Street entrance to our school will feature new sidewalks, planter boxes, and trees to greet the children of MacQuiddy Elementary. By mid-September when the construction is completed, the entrance to our school will be beautiful.
    Until the construction is finished, the main entrance will be relocated to the western side of the
    school, further down Martinelli Street, towards Virginia Street, and just past the portable classrooms. In case you get lost, there will be signs on the fences pointing towards the
    temporary entrance. You can also access the Office from the back of the school via Delores Street.
    Please use street parking until the construction is completed. The back parking lot will not be accessible for student drop off, pick up, or parent parking.
    In closing, I could not be more excited for this school year. I think I can speak for the entire staff when I say that we are looking forward to seeing all of you bright and early on August 14th at 7:55 am. Breakfast will be available for all students beginning at 7:30 am. Additionally, remember to mark your calendars for Back to School Night on Thursday, August 29th at 6:00 pm and the Back to School Potluck on Thursday, September 5th at 6:00 pm. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me via email, the office telephone line, or in person.
    Thank you so much for your patience and support!
    Shelby Biddy
