Important Parking Lot and Student Drop-Off Information From The Office

Sedalia Park Community,

Our school’s mission is “Every Student. Every Day.” That statement applies to every aspect of our school, especially ensuring that our students are safe. At this time, there is a concern for student safety in the parking lot that faces our front door, located on Utica Dr. That parking lot is our bus parking lot only, and is not to be used for student drop off in the morning or pick up at dismissal.  We do allow some of our students with disabilities to use this parking lot in the morning which is indicated with a colored card from Sedalia Park Administration.

On any given morning, we have nearly twenty buses and day-care vans driving through this lot and dropping off students at the front door. Due to the high volume of bus and day care traffic, it is unsafe for students to walk through this parking lot. Despite our best efforts, students are consistently let out of cars and sent to the front door unattended. Due to this increasing safety concern, it is necessary to make some changes to our school procedures.

  • The front parking lot will no longer be used for student drop off or parent parking until 8:00 am.
  • Sedalia Park staff will no longer be at the corner of Utica and Old Sewell to escort students to the front door.
  • Parking on Old Sewell is prohibited. Students who walk to school must be escorted to the front door by a parent or guardian.
  • The car line is the only way to bring students to school or pick them up in your vehicle.

Thank you for understanding the importance of keeping our students safe and supporting this decision. I would like to ask that you please strongly consider putting your students on the bus in the morning which will ensure safety, punctuality, and attendance.  If you have any questions, concerns, or need information about bus transportation, please contact the front office.


Milestone Information

Hello Parents,

I know that the Georgia Milestones test is still a few months away, but it is never too early to start preparing. During the upcoming Winter Break, here is where you can find information to help prepare your child:

Week of 12/04

This week in class:

Math – We will continue dividing whole numbers by unit fractions and introduce dividing unit fractions by whole numbers.

Writing – We will work on writing an imaginary narrative from a prompt. We will start timing our writing to prepare us for the Georgia Milestone’s – this may stress some students out, so be prepared if they have some writing assignments to bring home with them over the next two weeks.

Science – We are studying Chemical and Physical Changes to Matter

Social Studies – We are learning about the Industrial Revolution and Inventors at the Turn of the Century.

Reading – We are continuing our unit on “The Most Beautiful Roof in the World” in class. We are focusing on identifying the Main Idea, Key Details, and responding to questions using TEXT EVIDENCE. ***TIP – ask your child questions about the book they are reading and have them go back in the text and find proof to support their answer!

New Math Games Online


I have added a few new math games to my Helpful Links page. I’ll keep adding more links to this page this week to help the kids practice at home and in class.

I will be adding some Science and Social Studies links as we cover new material too.

2nd Quarter at a Glance

Math: We wrap up our work on place value and decimals with an assessment on Thursday, October 19th. We will start learning about fractions on Friday. Next week we will be adding and subtracting fractions. In the weeks following we will work on multiplying and dividing fractions. This is typically a very challenging 9 weeks for students, so expect more math homework to reinforce what we are doing in class.

I will post several fraction videos that will help show how we are learning it in class as the students watch them.

Spelling: We will continue working on new spelling words each week. We will pick up with Unit 8 next week and have a new set of words go home each Monday. There will continue to be four spelling homework assignments due every Friday before we take our weekly spelling test.

Reading: Coming soon!

Science: Coming soon!

Social Studies: Coming soon!
