August 2019

Dear Parents:

Welcome to the Idle Hour Elementary School! I hope you thoroughly enjoyed the vacation.  As you enjoy the final, lazy days of the summer, please take a moment to think about the following inspirational art, which reflects the sentiment of this year’s theme, “Success is dependent on effort!”


In the spirit of working together, I cordially invite you to join us to create a challenging learning environment for your child for the (2019 – 2020) school year. All of us at the Idle Hour School strongly believe that the education of children is a partnership between home and school.  It is a partnership, which involves a tremendous effort in time, commitment, dedication, and perseverance.  

The first, scheduled full -day of school for all children (kindergarten - fifth grade) is: 

Thursday, September 5, 2019
School hours are from 9:05 a.m. to 3:35 p.m.

Please keep in mind that the bus pick-up and drop-off may be late during the first week, until a routine is established. Please refer any transportation problems directly to the Transportation Department at 244-2201. Your child should bring a bag lunch or money to purchase a lunch (see menu enclosed). Please dress your child in comfortable clothing since it may be warm during the first few weeks of school. 

Once again, welcome back. I look forward to another new and rewarding year.
