Ske:g Tas! I hope this message reaches you happy and well. I’m writing to address concerns regarding our parent pick-up line.

The pick-up line begins to form along Highland Avenue as early as 1:30 p.m., and with Eagle’s Club ending this Friday (12/2), we anticipate the line to be longer until our after school programming begins again next semester.

The pick-up line often blocks the driveways of our neighbors along Highland Avenue. Moving forward, we ask that if you’re waiting in the pick-up line you do your best to avoid blocking the residential driveways. We are working on placing signage to assist in this effort. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Other important reminders:

  1. As mentioned above, the last day of Eagle’s Club is Friday, Dec. 2. There will be no after school activities for the remainder of December. We will notify the Community when Eagle’s Club starts again in January.
  2. The Winter Ball is Thursday, Dec. 8, from 6–7:30 p.m. This event is open to all SRES students and their families. Tickets are $3 per person.
  3. The last day of the semester is Friday, Dec. 16. Winter Break officially starts on Monday, December 19-January 3. Students return to school on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2023.
  4. Report cards will be mailed home during Winter Break.

Thank you for your time and attention to these notices. I am so grateful to our families for the work you do with your students each day. Thank you for reading to your child, assisting them with their homework, and getting them to school on time. Your support is a blessing and makes all the difference in the world.

Sincerely,
Emily Niu

Ske:g Tas! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break and were able to relax and enjoy yourselves. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our Turkey Trot last Wednesday. It was a fun event, and the students had a great time.

This week, students will undergo NWEA benchmark testing. It is important that your child is in school to complete their benchmark tests, which will take place from 8:30–10:30 a.m. The schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday, 11/29 – Reading
  • Wednesday, 11/30 – Math
  • Thursday, 12/1 – Language

We use benchmark testing data to determine student academic growth. The data helps us measure how students are progressing toward their academic goals. We examine the strengths and weaknesses in student learning and identify areas where extra supports are needed. It also helps us design specialized instruction and set learning goals according to student needs. Please ensure your child is in attendance this week.

It is hard to believe that we are in the month of December. We are excited to wind down our first semester. Friday, Dec. 16, is the last day of the 2nd quarter. Report cards will be mailed home at that time. Our Winter Break is from December 19 – January 3. Students will report back to school on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

The holidays are upon us, and it is a joyous time of year. Celebrating brings families together and creates communal bonds between people. I wish you all the joy and happiness the holidays bring. Please contact me at 480-362-2400 if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Emily Niu

I will be recovering from two total knee replacements now through the end of December. I am excited and will miss our school family. In my absence Emily Niu will act as SRES interim principal; she is our Administrator for Compliance and Reporting, and I have every confidence in her ability to lead. I encourage you to reach out to her to see how you might help. I plan to return in January 2023 with my ‘magic legs.’ Click here to read more of Dr. Guerrero's letter in the October Newsletter.

Wishing You Well!

Amanda Guerrero, Ed. D

Thank you for your patience as we persevered through our first drop-off and dismissal yesterday. Lines were long, it was hot, and there was some confusion regarding student transportation to and from school. I apologize for any confusion or frustration your family may have experienced. With the reminders below, SRES hopes student drop-off and dismissal is much smoother for everyone moving forward.

Student Drop-Off: In the morning, from 7:15–7:45 a.m., student drop-off is in the parking lot at the back of the school through the gate off Highland Avenue. If you are bringing students to the front of the school after 7:45 a.m., you must park and walk your child into the front office (entrance off Center Street). Before 7:45 a.m., this area is not to be used as student drop-off. There are several VISITOR spots for those who need to park to do business in the front office.

Student Dismissal: The gate off Highland Avenue opens at 2:30 p.m. SRES dismisses students at 2:45 p.m. at the end of our instructional day and not before this time. At 2:45 p.m. we will begin calling for students as we see their rides enter the parking lot. Thank you for persevering through the pick-up line yesterday. We anticipate the process will be easier as the week goes on. Students who ride the bus home must have all their transportation forms filled out before they can utilize those services. The Salt River Schools Transportation team will send an updated list of bus riders to the school, which will help alleviate some of the confusion experienced yesterday.

Change in Pick-Up Routine: If your child has an afternoon appointment, please pick them up before 2:15 p.m. The SRES front office is unable to dismiss students between 2:16–2:45 p.m. In addition, if you need to change the pick-up routine for your student, you must notify our front office before 1:45 p.m. on a regular day and before 11 a.m. on Early Release days. This gives us enough time to inform teachers and other staff of the changes.

If you have any questions about this, please call SRES at 480-362-2400.

Thank you,

Dr. Amanda Guerrero
SRES Principal
