Robo call going out at 6:15 PM. Good evening Bluewater families-
Thank you for continuing to express concerns about our pedestrians and pedestrian traffic on Range Rd and Bluewater Blvd. Keeping our students safe is a top priority. We continue to ask that cars not park by the cones on Bluewater Blvd as in our October newsletter. Considering that the vehicles lining up on Bluewater Blvd create a blind spot and hazard for pedestrians and drivers, we are working with the friends of Bluewater and county road department to make modifications on Bluewater Blvd. Look for more information in our upcoming newsletter. In the meantime, please do not park on Bluewater Blvd in the pedestrian lanes.
Robo call going out tonight at 5:30 regarding our Boosterthon Fundrasier. We are just two weeks away from the kick off on Nov 9th! Register your family on MyBooster.com.
Young Astronauts will be selling greeting cards to raise money for Space Camp the month of October. $30/box for 30 great cards! For each box they sell, the student will earn $15 towards their Space Camp trip. Please see Mrs. Erk or Mrs. Mathis for more details. Thank you for helping our Young Astronauts go to Space Camp! Mrs. Erk and Mrs. Mathis
No medication can be brought to school by the student. All medication must be signed in to the clinic by the parent or guardian. Some illnesses (Vomiting, Fever) require a 24-hour time period out of school before returning. Please see Health Manual on the OCSD web site, if you have any questions or call the clinic. Any student seen in the clinic should have a nurse's pass with information concerning the visit to the clinic. If your student is prone to allergies, please give them their medication prior to school to help with those symptoms. Hoping to have a healthy academic year, Nurse Mary LPN Bluewater E.S.
Attendance - If your child is absent, and you have signed up for FOCUS Parent Portal, you will receive a notification at 10:30am.

We recently transitioned to a new attendance system, so please be patient with us.

Good morning parents. This is Ms. Klugh, Principal of Bluewater Elementary School with an important school safety announcement. This morning our school went into a brief, precautionary “lockout” at the recommendation of law enforcement for an off campus incident in the vicinity of our school. These additional safety measures did not affect your student’s classroom instruction. Our “lock-out” has been lifted and we have resumed normal school operations at this time. Again, this incident occurred off-campus and our lockout protocols were initiated as a precaution. Safety is our top priority. Thank you for your continued support of Bluewater and have a good day.
5th grade Seminole Singers- First rehearsal is Tuesday, Sept 27 beginning at 7:45 AM. Mr. Blackburn will meet you at the front door.

Good evening Bluewater families. Here are a few friendly reminders for tomorrow's first day of school. in order to keep our pedestrians safe and help with car rider ramp flow. The parking lot in the front on the right will be closed to parking for walk up pedestrian traffic. Pedestrians will need to park off campus and use the crosswalk to come on campus. Students arriving by car are considered car riders and must use the car rider ramp. When exiting car rider ramp, it will be a right turn only as directed. Please also keep in mind, that for your safety, pedestrians should not cross the bus ramp.
