Dear Forest Avenue Families,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am so excited to have the opportunity to work together this year to support the students of Forest Avenue! Throughout the school year, I will send out a weekly newsletter with important school information. Classroom teachers will communicate classroom information. Home-school communication is essential to student success. Please feel free to reach out if you need anything throughout the year.

Looking forward to a fantastic school year!

Becky Silveira

Forest Avenue Arrival & Dismissal


Students may be dropped off anytime between 8:15-8:30 Please note we have a new start time, all students MUST be in their classrooms by 8:30 or they are considered tardy. Please use the circular drive nearest the playground for drop off and pick up. Buses drop off and pick up in the circular drive closest to the main entrance of the school. Please keep an eye out for the bus schedule, once it is published I will share it with families.


Student dismissal will begin at 2:50pm, please note this is also a new time. Buses are dismissed through the main door. If your child is a car rider in the afternoon, please use the two lanes in the circular drive nearest the playground for pick up. Car rider numbers will be mailed to students in grades 1-3 and given out to Kindergarten families at orientation.
