Dear Newby Families,

Student Store

Our products should be arriving shortly. The store is scheduled to be open on Fridays only at this time. We will have two sides to the store. One side will offer items available for Tiger Paw tickets. Students can trade in their reward tickets for items in the student store. The other side will offer snack items for either $1.00 or $.50. These items will be part of the healthy snack checklist and offered after their lunch. The cool part, they can take their snack outside to enjoy it at recess. Beware, you may get hit up for a dollar for snacks on Fridays!

Healthy Snacks Reminder |

If a parent asks if they can bring treats, please remind them:

  • Only healthy snacks (see the list) Snack List | Español
  • No cake, cupcakes or frosted cookies
  • All products must be store bought – no homemade items. Even if the parent has a food server permit, their kitchen is not licensed as a commercial kitchen.

Supervision of students is a primary concern throughout the school, and mornings are no exception. Options for students before school each morning are:

  1. Cafeteria is open for breakfast 7:30 a.m. to 7:55 a.m.
    1. Supervision in the dining area starts at 7:30 a.m.
    2. Students are dismissed to the playground or computer lab starting at 7:45 a.m.
    3. Students arriving after 7:55 a.m. will receive a “Breakfast on the Go” and report to class.
    4. School begins at 8:05 a.m.
  2. Playground opens at 7:45 a.m.
    1. Supervisors open the play area starting at 7:45 a.m.
    2. Students may join the playground activities at any point after 7:45 a.m.
    3. Students are organized for entry at 7:55a.m.
    4. School begins at 8:05a.m.
  3. Front entry drop-off area supervision starts at 7:45 a.m.
    1. Students arriving before 7:55 a.m. will be directed to the covered play area.
    2. Students arriving after 7:55 a.m. will proceed to class through supervised hallways.
    3. School begins at 8:05 a.m.

There is no supervision prior to 7:30 a.m. in the morning at Newby Elementary. Please do not have students arrive at school prior to this time, as this creates a potentially dangerous situation. No adult supervision is available, and we do not want students left on their own in the cold and darkness outside the building. Your help in making this a safe and secure setting is much appreciated.


Dave Carlson, Principal
