Good evening parents. This is Mrs. Burroughs, calling to remind all Dr. King parents that tomorrow is Dr. King School's May Day Fun Day. We will be spending a good deal of our time outdoors, so we are asking that students remember to wear sunscreen and get a good night's rest. We will take frequent water and shade breaks to cool down. Students may dress in shorts and red tops, and they should wear sneakers rather than sandals, as they will be running a lot. As a reminder, flip flops are not to be worn to school at any time. Thanks for your support and have a great evening

Good afternoon parents. Today has been unusual in that this morning out lights at MLK went out prior to the start of the school day. They came back on at approximately 8:15, while students were still arriving. However, with the power outage, though the boiler was still operating, some parts of the building did not have heat. This may be the case for tomorrow as well while the problem is being resolved. When sending your children tomorrow, please dress them in layers for warmth so that when they are in a chillier part of the building, they can be warm. Again, the district is moving quickly to address the problem, but we are preparing for the likelihood that it will be completed in the days ahead. Thank you for your support . Please also remember that there are no after school programs and there is an early dismissal on Wednesday at 12:45. Have a good afternoon.

Good evening parents and staff. This is Mrs. Burroughs. I’m calling to inform you that today there was an emergency in a nearby neighborhood, causing the A.C.Police Department to place the school Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School Complex into a Lockdown setting for approximately 20 minutes. We were all safe, thanks to the expert response from the police department, our staff, and our students. We practice emergency drills each month, hoping to never have to use them. However, today proved that our students have developed a trust in the staff that allowed them to respond quickly and efficiently. We assured them that we were not in immediate danger at any time and that they were safe. We also tried to ease some of the fears that come with any emergency, but we wanted you to know what occurred so that you could assure them that though we cannot control the poor decisions that people sometimes make, we take their safety seriously and our school is a safe zone. We thank the ACPD and the MLK staff, our students and you too. We all work together to make our school a safe place. Have a great evening and thank you again for your continued support

Good evening parents. This is Mrs. Burroughs. In an effort to keep you informed, I'm calling to let you know that today, Tuesday November 23, 2010, the school had a PRACTICE lockdown drill. From time to time we have practice drills so that students know what to do in the case of an emergency. The staff and students did a wonderful job and they understand that we practice all emergency drills so that we are prepared for ANY emergency situation. Thank you for working so hard with your children to help them to become more responsible, to come to school ready to learn and to always be respectful. It is also important that they do not participate in ANY type of bullying and to report any such behavior to a staff member. That way we can do our best at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School Complex to pursue our dreams and to pursue excellence. Have a great evening.

Therefore I am Prompted to explore a process to reduce the number of students who are absent and late on a consistent basis. In April we will be exploring a Truancy Task Force. You will receive a letter to attend a mandatory meeting if your children display chronic absenteeism and tardiness. The task force will consist of administrators, a representative from the DCPs, the Family Court System as well as other staff members. You will be required to justify why your children are constantly absent and/or late. The task force will make some recommendations for improvements with follow-up meetings. I strongly suggest you encourage your children to come to school everyday and to arrive on time. Thank you for your support

Dear Precious Parents, I really need your help. Due to some major safety issues I Can not allow parents in the building during instructional time. If you would like to meet with a teacher you must call to schedule and appointment. If you are bringing a student back from suspension or a scheduled PTC, that is OK too. However, early pick ups must state you request at the door and remain outside until your child comes out. Please be advised we will not be releasing students after 2:30pm. It becomes very chaotic disrupting the end of the day procedures. We love our students and their safety and welfare will always remain a priority at the NYAS. Thank you and enjoy your day.
