Dear RE-1 Valley Parents and Community,
We are happy to inform you that the district-wide safety and security system
will be phased in across all buildings starting the week of January 26.
Parents and visitors to the buildings after the morning bell will need to
ring the buzzer connected to the school office to gain entry into our
school buildings. We are posting signs at each building with clear
directions for your convenience. The office personnel will ask your
name and purpose of your visit prior to welcoming you into the building.
After entering the building, please sign in at the office. The phase in for
all buildings will be completed by February 20.
Additionally, the following paragraph is being added to our RE-1 Valley policies
to inform and direct guidance for the use of our new video surveillance cameras
in our schools:
and security of students, staff and district property is best implemented
with a multifaceted approach. To the extent that modern electronic
technologies such as video surveillance cameras assist in providing
another tool to establish and maintain safe environments, the use of
electronic technologies is supported by the Board of Education.
The use of electronic technologies shall be in accordance with
applicable state and federal laws pertaining to such use.
we would appreciate if you could give us a call and update that information with us.
It is important that we have your most recent information.
If you do no have a handicap parking permit,
please do not park in the handicap parking spots in the front parking lot.
The Yellow Happy Face Flags will be flying out front and on each playground.
Please drop your child off in the front of the school if the flags are flying!
**Remember** when using the Hug-N-Go Zone, do not park and get out of your vehicle to walk your child up. If you need to do so, please park in a parking space.
Also, please be patient and allow for extra time on these cold mornings.
The line moves a little slower because there are so many kids being dropped off.

Dismissal for kindergarten is at 11:10 and 3:05 and for 1st and 2nd grade at 3:10. Valuable learning continues through the end of the day; therefore, we ask that you do not come into the office to pick up your child before dismissal.
The building hours are 7:45-4:00. Students are not to be dropped off at school any earlier than 7:45 in the morning as there will not be supervision available until that time. When the weather is not appropriate, students will be in the gym before school starts. Be looking for the yellow flags outside the front door, by the bike racks, and at the back of the building by the cafeteria. The yellow flags mean that the students will be in the gym.
If you have any of the above items lying around the house, please drop them off in the office at Ayres anytime!
