Arrival and dismissal procedures

Our arrival and dismissal procedures will remain largely unchanged from last year.  Below are some key points to keep in mind as we start the school year:


  • There is no adult supervision prior to 8:25 a.m. Therefore, students should arrive at school no earlier than 8:25 a.m. unless they are attending a club or study session supervised by a staff member.
  • Our morning drop will remain the same as previous years.  Please drop your child off on the west side of Armstrong Lane, and the crossing guard will ensure a safe passage to the school grounds.  Please be mindful of our neighbors and refrain from parking in or in front of their driveways.
  • All students and adults should use the crosswalk and please do not ever walk in between the buses.
  • The parking lot and front drive will be closed at 8:15 and reopen at 8:40 each day.


  • The parking lot will be closed to all vehicles except busses at approximately 2:50, or 2:20 on Wednesdays.
  • The driveway in front of the school is for buses only.
  • Walkers will exit through the main entrance.  Feel free to greet them at the door as they exit with their teacher.  Bussers will exit through this same door at approximately 3:10.  Please help us avoid congestion in the main entrance area, and once you have your child(ren), you are more than welcome to move to the sidewalk nearest Armstrong or to the playground to continue your conversations.

Read, read, read!

Looking for good books for your child to read this summer? Recommended reading list brochures were sent home with students.  This is a great place to get ideas about titles students may want to read over the summer.  Also, be sure to visit your local library often.  Happy reading!

PBIS celebration assembly

Students had a great time participating in our last PBIS assembly to celebrate those that showed the 3Bs s throughout the school year. A blue card raffle was held and students were able to choose from a variety of prizes! Congratulations to those students who consistently showed their Stallion pride throughout the year and earned a certificate for demonstrating all eight keys.

Tech 2017

A small team of Stevenson students participated in the Tech 2017 conference in Springfield.  Lauren Rivera, Stevenson’s Library Resource Teacher, along with our team of 6th grade students, presented Our Morning Announcement Production Crew.  Senators and other schools alike were amazed at how our announcements run like a well-oiled machine and were surprised at just how much goes into getting us on the air.  We are very proud of our Tech 2017 team as well as all our students who participate in the production club.

Thank you!

On behalf of the entire Stevenson staff, we would like to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to our wonderful PTA and families for an unforgettable Teacher Appreciation Week….what a wonderful week full of food, fun, and celebration from our students and parents! Thank you for making us feel special. We are incredibly lucky to work with you each and every day.
