The time is already upon us to begin thinking about Field Day. As you may already know we hold a separate field day for each grade level. 

Second grade field day will be on Friday, May 22nd

Third grade on Friday, May 15th

Fourth grade on Tuesday, May 26th

Fifth grade on Monday, June 1st

All field days will run from approximately 8:30 until noon.

In case of rain, a makeup day will be planned for Tuesday June 2nd.

We are working hard to plan a morning full of fun, active events for all.  There will be a mix of age-appropriate recreational, skill, relay, and competitive events.  Our goal is to provide events which will encourage the students to develop a love of physical activity so that they might continue with a healthy and active lifestyle.

Several parents are serving as volunteer coordinators and could use your help in ensuring these events are fun days for everyone.  In order for these mornings to be successful we need involved parents.  Please consider spending some time helping on any of the field day mornings you are available.  While most parents choose to help on the day of their child’s event, some may prefer to help with another grade level’s event.  If you can volunteer any of the mornings listed above please return the slip sent home this week.

Thank you very much!!

Mr. Blattert   Phys. Ed. at Ralya

Mr. Noeker   Phys. Ed. at Murphy

Please return this slip to your child’s teacher by April 24, 2015

The Weather is Warming up!

It’s important to keep an eye on the weather as your child leaves for school each day to make sure he / she is dressed properly to go outside for recess. Getting outside for some fresh air and exercise is an important part of the school day.  A good rule of thumb to follow is: Any day that the temperature is below 50º students should be wearing a jacket. 

Congratulations to our Student Art Contest Winners for the Michigan Safety Conference. Abigayle Shawl took third place and fourth placd went to Zoe Chapin!

Parking Lot Information


If you plan to drop off your child in the morning or pick them up in the afternoon, we would like you to follow these procedures:

1. Please drop off or pick up in the north parking lot. The front drive is buses only.

2.  Morning drop off time starts at 8:00 am at the north door.

3. Pick up time starts at 3:00 pm at the north door. If you arrived between 3:15 - 3:20 pm there will be supervision and a lot less traffic. Please get a car visor sign and put your student's first and last name on the sign utilizing all the white space possible! Black marker is requested.

4. Parents may wait for their child on the benches outside the gym or in the Multi-Purpose room, if they do not want to get in the car line-up. Please do not wait in the lobby. The lobby area needs to be clear for the safety of all students.

5. Students may not walk withrough the parking lot without an adult.

6. Parents, please walk beside your child when crossing the parking lot.

Visiting School

Parents, community members and other interested people are welcome to visit our schools. Prior notification to the teacher is helpful but not necessary. Visitors or volunteers are expected to check in at the school office, sign-in, and wear a visitor badge.

Parents volunteering in the classroom or attending field trips are requested to leave other children at home as this generally causes undue disruption to the normal classroom routine.  If you are volunteering in the classroom or on a field trip, you will need to fill out a Background History Consent Form. These can be returned to the Ralya Office or to the Administration Building. Forms are available by clicking on the link below.

End of the Day Schedule

  • All students will exit using the front and North doors (parent pick up).
  • Students going to Kids Connection will go to the Multi-Purpose Room.
  • Parent Pick up – North Parking Lot Door

If you are picking your student up in the line outside, you will receive a car visor sign. Please put  your students first and last name on the sign utilizing all the white space possible! Black marker is requested.

  • Parent Pick up – In the Building:
Parents will wait for students in the MPR or gym hallway on the benches. We need to keep the lobby area clear.  Students will look for the parents first in the MPR and then check the benches in the gym hallway.  Families are asked to have a common area planned for their meeting location.  For safety reasons, please do not pick up your student at the classroom door!

Please use the front doors during the school day and sign in at the office.  Before school and after school, the front doors and the north doors will be unlocked.

We appreciate the cooperation of all parents and families and look forward to a safe year!

Please read through the information, sign and return to your student's teacher if you haven’t done so already. This is a new state requirement to ensure that both the parent and the school understand the significance of concussions. If you ever suspect that your child has had a concussion, it is important that you seek medical attention and get clearance from the doctor before returning to school.

Haslett District Volunteers

There are many ways in which you can make a difference in the lives of our students. Volunteer opportunities exist in the classrooms working directly with teachers and students, chaperoning field trips, assisting at recess or at lunch time, or helping out at a PTO function, booster activities, or extracurricular event. Volunteering can be very rewarding – which is why many of our volunteers return year after year.  If you plan to volunteer this year, please return the volunteer form.
