WHAT'S GOING ON!
In the 2013-2014 school year, Food and Nutrition Services implemented an online meal application; for parents to apply for free and reduced-price meals in a simple, convenient, and confidential manner.
During the 2012-2013 school year, 94.35% of households utilized the www.applyforlunch.com Web site; due to Food and Nutrition Services and schools, making computers and support staff accessible to parents.
For the 2013-2014 school year, Food and Nutrition Services will utilize a mobile unit; to provide additional assistance for parents in completing the online meal application. Attached is a schedule which includes the date, time, and location of where the mobile unit will be located in the District. The mobile unit will be stationed at 11 centrally located school sites and encompass an additional 48 school sites, providing assistance to 59 schools identified through application data. Food and Nutrition Services will inform parents of the mobile unit assistance and schedule, via the District’s ParentLink phone messaging system. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Food and Nutrition Services at 754-321-0250.
Yearly School Financial Report
Section 1010.215 of the Florida Statutes requires school districts to report to parents and to the public certain financial information in the form of a yearly school financial report. Click below to review the 2011-2012 financial report for Pompano Beach Elementary.
Rainy Day Procedures
Students will be dismissed in a light rain. Rain gear is advisable.
When there is heavy rain, or heavy rain is imminent, it is important that your child knows what to do.
If you plan to pick up your child on these days, please discuss the procedure you will follow with him/her. This is very important for two reasons: 1. It will keep a large number of students from coming to the office to use the telephones. 2. It will save the parent the trouble of calling when the telephone lines are overloaded.
Bicycle riders and walkers will be held until the severe weather lets up or clears. Car riders will need to be signed out and picked -up from their classroom. Bus riders will need to be picked-up from their bus stop.
There are many ways you can support your child's learning and school. Here are a few ideas:
Spend a few minutes every evening looking over handouts your youngster brings home. Fill out forms to return the next day.
- Tell your child's teacher if you can help them out at school or home.
- Make sure teachers know you appreciate their efforts. From time to time, send a thank-you not or email.
- Contact your youngster's teacher immediately of you see a problem. Working together will help your child succeed.
- Attend conferences, parent meetings and school events regulalry.
