The Weston Weekly July 31, 2020

It was so nice to see students in our hallways this week. There was endless laughter and smiles as students and staff greeted each other after many long months. I must say thank you to each of you. We appreciate you educating your student(s) on how to wear their mask and the importance of keeping each other safe.

We realize transportation took a little longer this week. It will become quicker as we adjust to our new arrival and dismissal locations. The orange signs in the window were a large help. Thank you for displaying them.

Weston will continue to make any necessary adjustments to ensure the safety of our students, their families and staff. Please have a restful and enjoyable weekend. ~Mrs. Welch

School Dismissal Manager ~ Weston Elementary School uses a dismissal managing software called School Dismissal Manager (www.schooldismissalmanager.com) for all transportation arrangements and changes. Parents are able to manage where and when students go after school securely online. It is our hope that this online (or smartphone) process will make things easier for you when you have changes or recurring arrangements! You will receive a welcome email with your login credentials in the next few weeks, so please be on the lookout for this. I will also send out an email once the logins are sent to you as a reminder. For those of you who used this system last year, ALL parents will receive a new welcome letter and new login credentials.

Ride 360 ~ New this year! You will now be able to see bus information via Ride 360 Just download the app and link your child to your account (you will need your student’s Student ID from Powerschool), then you will be able to see bus information. This can help with bus pick up in the morning and drop off times after school. We are still working through getting this software up and running, so please stay tuned.

EZ School Pay ~ Lunch Accounts - Greenfield-Central is once again using www.ezschoolpay.com to put lunch money in your child’s lunch account (there is a small fee and you will need your child’s student number found on Powerschool). Lunch money may also be submitted by check when you come to registration. Please be sure to keep your child’s lunch account in good standing. Additionally, our cafeteria computer system does not have the capabilities to put a “block” on student lunch accounts for purchasing extra lunch items. You will want to make sure your child is on the same page as you when it comes to spending lunch account money. FYI, you can also pay textbook rental fees and iPad insurance on ezschoolpay as well!
