Principal's Message

Greetings Manatee Family!

I hope your summer vacation has been wonderful and restful!  We are looking forward to welcoming all scholars back to school August 13, 2018.  We cannot wait to welcome all our new scholars and families to Meadow Woods Elementary, where Manatees are Mastering Excellence! 

Please save the date for our first event: Meet the Teacher on August 8th for Pre-K, Kindergarten and ESE/ASD classrooms only from 5-6 pm and August 9th for grades 1st -5th from 5:45-7:00pm. This will give you and your child the opportunity to meet the amazing teacher that will provide academic instruction for the 2018-2019 school year. In addition, you will receive pertinent information about the year .

School hours are 8:45am -3:00pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and we will dismiss at 2:10 pm on Wednesdays. Please be sure to pick up two car rider tags during Meet the Teacher and have them displayed in your car during dismissal.  Scholars will not be permitted to leave in a vehicle without the appropriate car rider tag.  Tags may also be picked up from the front office at any time.  Anyone without a car rider tag, must check scholars out in the front office with a valid photo ID. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and patience during the first couple of weeks of school. During the first few weeks of school, arrival and dismissal times bring heavier car rider traffic than normal.

During Meet the Teacher night you will also be getting information on arrival and dismissal procedures. To assist with a smooth transition from the summer break, parents will be permitted to escort his or her child to class in the mornings, during the first week of school only.  Every visitor on our campus will be expected to sign in and display the appropriate visitor’s badge.  There will be members of our staff strategically placed around campus to assist during the first week of school. 

I am very excited to be part of this wonderful community. We are working diligently to provide the best quality education for all scholars. Our teachers and staff are ready to lead our scholars to success through innovative and meaningful learning experiences. This year “We will make it happen!”

Here to serve,

Mrs. Vazquez, Proud Principal
