Billings Elementary School
January is a quiet month at Billings Elementary. That is a wonderful month for learning because there are few interruptions. We will be starting our winter testing with NWEA the week of Jan. 21st through Jan. 28th. We hope your children will be at school each and every day because there is a lot going on in each and every classroom!
Please remind your child to wear a coat each day. If possible, the children go out to recess and we want everyone to stay healthy so they must stay warm!

* Please note the new attendance policy below located in the handbook in regards to extracurricular activities and field trips.
ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE AN ATTENDANCE PERCENTAGE OF 90% OR HIGHER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY. THIS INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO CLUBS (ARCHERY AND STUDENT AIR RIFLE) AND FIELD TRIPS. Attendance checks will occur at the beginning of the quarter, mid-quarter, and at the end of the quarter. Please understand that any absences early in the year makes a larger impact on overall attendance, simply from fewer days yet in session. At those times, any student with an attendance percentage lower than 90%, will be allowed to practice but not compete at any competition until the next attendance check.. For field trips, attendance will be checked the day prior to the trip to notify any students they will not be attending.
*Morning drop-off– we use one lane only; the first car in line should pull up to the brick sidewalk to let your child out; only let your child out of the car if you are the first or second car (safety reasons); let your child out on the sidewalk side of the car; never pass the cars in front of you (we will keep the line moving as quickly as possible)
*If you need to come into the building, please park in a parking place
*Preschool noon drop-offs – we use one lane only; let your child out on the sidewalk side of the car
*Afternoon dismissal – if parents are not picking your child up in the car line, you will need to meet them in the gym. It is not safe to be watching children going to cars and trying to watch who is picking up students otherwise. Please meet your child at the gym.
Thank you for letting us know about any changes in transportation as early as possible in the day.
