Book Fair - November 14-17
Dear Parents and Families:
Get ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become Bolder, Prouder, and Stronger Readers. AND—as always—every book they buy earns rewards for our school.
Here's what you need to know about the Fair, which will take place from November 14th — November 17th in person at school. Students will come with their class. The book fair will be located on the first floor.
This year, say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet—your child's digital payment account.
Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share your child's eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy.
If you can't make it to the Fair, then shop at our school's Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school. You can shop online through November 27th!
Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/csia2021
Books make great gifts too!

Parents please remember to do the annual update of your personal information in Parent Portal so we will have your child's current contact information. This information is very important as it determines bus transportation, school/district mailings, and people who are allowed to pick up your child from school.
GREAT NEWS address changes now can be done through Parent Portal. The schools no longer can do it.
If you need further assistance in setting up your Parent Portal account, or retrieving your Username/Password, please sent an email with your picture ID, along with your child's name and date of birth to:
Car riders and walkers may enter the building at 8:30. School begins at 9:00 a.m. We do not have supervision for students before 8:30 a.m. Car riders, please enter the parking lot entrance to the school and pull up to the curb and stay in the car. For safety, we need to maintain a single line of cars along the curb. Parents will not be permitted to walk their students into the school. We will have staff outside and inside to direct students to their classrooms. Bus riders will enter through the bus doors, as we have traditionally entered. Breakfast is available to all students. Tardy bell rings at 9:00 AM.
If you plan to pick up your student, please enter the parking lot and stay in your car, in the pick up line, along the curb. We will have staff to walk with our prek and kindergarten students out to the cars. This will take some time to become efficient, please be patient as we develop this routine with our students. It is helpful if you have a large sign on your passenger door with your child’s name and grade level so that we can easily see the names to call. If the traffic gets stopped at the light, please feel free to park in the parking lanes nearest to Karl Road, and then walk to the sidewalk. We have a teacher on the sidewalk calling names. We ask that you social distance on the sidewalk.
Cars are not allowed in the bus lane. This lane is only for buses and Day Care vehicles. We appreciate your cooperation in making sure that students are safe at dismissal.
Please call the office before 2:30 p.m. if you are changing your child’s dismissal plan. We deliver messages to the classrooms between 2:30 and 3:00. During dismissal, we cannot answer the phones because we are all working to make sure that students are dismissed safely and efficiently. Some students arrive by car in the morning, but expected to ride the bus home in the evening, or by bus in the morning but car rider in the afternoon. Please communicate all dismissal changes. If a student is on the bus list, it is possible that the student will be sent home on the bus unless the parent has communicated to the office or teacher that the student is a car rider.
Late Arrivals/Early Dismissal
If your child is late to school, please escort to the main office. Your child will be signed in by the front office. For early dismissal, a valid ID is required for student pick up, and your child will only be released to adults listed on Infinite Campus. If you are sending someone else not listed on Infinite Campus to pick up your child, please call the office ahead of time to let us know, and make sure the individual has a valid ID.

Over 100 different languages are spoken in Columbus City Schools, and the District is always looking for ways to engage with our non-English speaking families. One essential part of these connections is our family engagement staff.
The District received this distinction from the Healthy Business Council of Ohio (HBCO) in recognition of its healthy worksite practices.
The Columbus City Schools Health Services Team would like to take a moment to provide an update on the current respiratory viral season and share tips on keeping all of us healthy through the holidays and upcoming winter months.
As part of National Family Engagement Month this November - and in honor of National Parent Involvement Day on November 17 - Columbus City Schools celebrates the work of our Family Ambassadors to encourage more of our students’ parents and family members to take an active role in their children’s education.
