The school council develops and approves the School Improvement Plan in alignment with the District Improvement Plan, discusses budget and other topics regarding school.
Leeds School Council members for 2016-2017 are:
Make sure children are dressed appropriately for the season. Several students do not like to wear coats or jackets while playing outside but we maintain a practice in which they do when it is above 32 degrees. To support us in this practice we point out how parents and guardians had them dressed for school. If there is snow on the ground and students want to play in it, snow pants, gloves, hats and boots are required.
PLEASE remember and follow our pick up and drop off procedures. The bus loop (office entrance) should not be used by any parent vehicles** between 8:30 and 9:00 and 2:55 and 3:15. Buses and vans are picking up and dropping off, several students are out there and when buses have their red flashing lights on, it is illegal to pass them as they are parked so parent vehicles end up trapped until arrival or dismissal is over.
WALKER PICK UP... Our walker pick up area is managed as best as we can and with input from the Northampton Police Department and the Transportation Department. We are supported by a Crossing Guard. It is important for traffic flow and safety that once in the traffic line that you please remain in your cars, do not park and leave your vehicles or leave the line as it negatively could affect traffic on Florence Street for those traveling in either direction. Please progress forward as students are picked up. This process has been streamlined with two adults using walkie talkies to inform students of their rides arrivals and we can usually move 6-7 cars at a time filling the loop and ensuring all are picked up safely by 3:15.
