·   Tuesday, January 3, 2017 will be Move-In Day at the SEEC.  Students and their families may visit their classrooms, drop off their school supplies, tour the school, and complete an updated transportation form.  Kindergarten families should attend between 8:00-11:00 am.  First grade families should attend between 12:00-3:00 pm.


·   All students will receive a FREE SEEC spirit shirt at Move-In Day.  Please allow your student to wear the shirt to school on Wednesday, January 4 – the first day of school in the new building.

      o   All cars must display a Saraland City Schools hangtag to pick up a child.  Students will be loaded into cars using their                carline dismissal numbers.

      o   During afternoon carline, numbers will be called and cars will be directed to one of five loading zones.  Students will                  meet their cars at the named loading zone.

      o   A staff member will assist students into the driver side of the car.

      o   When five cars finish loading, the next five cars will pull into the loading zones.


We are excited about the move to the Early Education Center.
