Principal's Points to Ponder
"New To Blue"
A+ Award Presentation                                      Gov. Scott's Letter     
September 6, 2017
Dear Bluewater Families, 

Thank you for your generous support and encouragement as we start a new school year. Please take time to review this document and review the student planner handbook for grades 2-5. This handbook contains important information about Bluewater policies as well as Okaloosa County district policies that we follow. It is our responsibility to keep our students safe, help them become responsible citizens, and teach them to respect those around them. We believe that keeping an open line of communication between the school and home is a vital part of your school experience. As we move forward together, below you will find a few priorities to help Bluewater be the best school it can be. 

SAFETY- We need your help to insure that our school is safe. When arriving on campus, visitors must check in at the front office. You will need a driver’s license each time you check out your student or print a visitor’s pass.  Our School Check-in system must be able to scan the bar code on the back of your state issued license. All visitors must wear a yellow visitor sticker at all times. Those without stickers should be reported to the office or our School Resource Officer, Deputy Self.   Please be sure that students arrive on time between 8:35-8:50. Students who arrive earlier than this will not have the supervision we strive to provide pursuant with School Board Policy 4-27.  

**For everyone's safety, please turn off cell phones when on the car rider ramp.  No texting and driving on campus.  Due to PE and recess being conducted in the car rider area, the afternoon car rider ramp will open at 3:00. 

MAXIMIZE- Please help us maximize time on task by minimizing interruptions. Did you know that if your child's class loses just five minutes a day that those students lose 900 minutes of instruction per year? We love our students and we want them to make the most growth possible, so if you are dropping off a forgotten item or a tardy student, please bring them to the front office. We will be sure to get your item to its destination. If you would like to speak to your child's teacher, please email them or call 833-4240 to leave a message in the office. Your child's teacher will be happy to schedule an appropriate time to conference with you. Morning drop off is not a time for parent conferences. Teachers must supervise students.   

SUPPORT- Thank you for the continued support that you provide our school, teachers, and staff members. We are able to do so much more because of our wonderful parent support system. Monies, generated through our PTO, fund classroom supplies and special events throughout our school. 

Thank you again for all that you do to make Bluewater the wonderful school that it is!
