Important Updates (New Info)

Police Assistance with Traffic:  The Upper Arlington Police will be increasing their presence during drop off and pick up times to address two important safety concerns:

  1. Cars speeding in our school zones.

  2. Cars turning right on red from Farleigh onto Tremont.  There is signage indicating “No Turn On Red” from Farleigh to Tremont from the hours of 7:30AM to 4:30PM.  

Thanksgiving Break:  Next week we will have school Monday and Tuesday only.  


Important Reminders (from previous newsletters--but still important!)

PM Parking Lot Traffic:  We are experiencing some back ups in the parking lot during after school pick up.  Please pull forward when cars in front of you exit, allowing more cars to get in the pick up line.  Thank you!

Tremont Artwork is on display at Central Office now through the month of December.  54 individual students have work displayed as well as Mrs. Salvatore's class' International Dot Day Mobile and the entire fifth grade's Rainbow of Diversity Mural.  Everyone there is so appreciative of the student's vibrant work on display!

Library Card Drive, Grades 3-5: Great news!  Tremont is partnering with UAPL and launching a 3rd, 4th & 5th grade library card drive!  We are so excited for the potential impact this can have for our students and their future as readers and researchers.  By partnering with our awesome community library, students will have digital access to thousands of resources such as databases, ebooks, audiobooks, and print materials.  Please review the attached letter from the 3-5 teaching team and strongly consider one of the UAPL access options for your Lion!  Library Cards for grades 3-5

Food and Allergies:  In accordance with our district allergy policy, we are not allowing students to bring food to school to celebrate their birthdays.  Students can donate a game, or bring non-food items to pass out in class.  Thank you for observing our request as the safety of all students is our priority.
