    #WeAreMES #BetterTogether!

  • Welcome to Markham Elementary! 
    We are so excited to begin a new school year, especially after missing out on truly finishing this past school year with our students due to COVID-19 school closures.  Although this year may bring changes to some of our routines and procedures, we want our families to know how much thought and care has been put into each and every change-with YOUR children's safety and education in mind!
    This year's "Meet the Teacher" will be done virtually.  Back to school packet distribution will be done as a drive-through pick up on Monday, August 10th.  Virtual Meet the Teacher info will be in these packets, and will take place the following day-Tuesday, August 11th.  Be on the lookout for specific times, links, and information soon!
     
    At Markham Elementary, we will communicate and share information with all of our families through ClassDojo, the Markham Elementary web page and Facebook page, as well as through Blackboard. Checking these frequently will help keep you informed!  If you need help, please call the school and we will get you set up!
    Our school phone number is (979) 843-4340. 
     
    Good attendance is important for academic success! Students are learning throughout the day, so try to make it a priority to have your children here on time and for the full day. Online students will need to log in for attendance each day by 9:00am. If your child is absent, please send a written note the day they are able to return to school. Please be aware: three unexcused absences result in truancy and can be punishable by up to a $500.00 fine. 
     
    Breakfast and lunch are FREE for ALL students, including students who chose online instruction. We will not be offering snacks in the cafeteria at this time. Extras and individual items off the serving counter will not be charged to your child's account; they must have funds available in their account.  No charges will be allowed. Thanks for your cooperation!
     
    Doors open at 7:30am. Breakfast is served from 7:30-7:50am.
    Lunch Schedule: PK & K @ 10:45; 1st @ 11:00; 2nd @ 11:15; 3rd @ 11:45; 4th-5th @ 12:00.
     
    Car-Loading/Pick-Up Procedures for ALL Parents & Visitors:
    Please call before 2:30pm for changes to parent pick-up or bus transportation. If you're in the car loading line, you must have the car tags with your child(ren)'s names. These tags need to be visible to our staff in the windshield throughout the pickup process.
     *UPDATE: Parents will not be allowed inside to sign out their child at dismissal.* You will need to be in the car line. If you choose to walk to pick up your child, those children will be released after all car riders with our "walkers" group.  Parents without transportation will wait for their children on the sidewalk outside, while maintaining social distancing.  These changes have been put in place for the safety of all our students and staff.  We truly appreciate your cooperation and patience as we work through our new routines.
     
    Dismissal Time:
    *UPDATE: Starting this year, Pre-K through 5th Grades will all dismiss at 3:30PM.*
     
    Look in your child's folder every Wednesday for your child's graded papers for face-to-face students.
