Emergency Contact Reminder

In order to better enhance home/school communication, Myrtle Elementary School District would like to remind  all our families to contact the main office with any updates to your student(s) contact list. We would like to ensure that everyone’s most updated emergency contact information is documented in our School Information System (SIS). The SIS not only helps us communicate with our families, but informs our staff of any additional emergency information. For example, students may only be released to individuals listed on the emergency information provided regardless of verbal permission.   In addition, we would like to remind all our families that valid identification is required when picking up all students prior to dismissal. 


Outdoor Recess

During the winter and cooler fall and spring months, please remember that we will make every effort possible to go outside for recess (weather permitting). Please be sure to send you child to school with appropriate clothing for outdoor recess, including coats, hats and gloves. If you need assistance purchasing these items, please reach out to Myrtle Avenue Elementary School counselor Mrs. Desiree Krawchyk via email - [email protected]..
