Letter from Principal McNeil

  • Dear Summit Elementary families,

     I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2019-20 School Year! For those of you who are new to our school, please know that you are coming to a wonderful place. Our teachers and staff are caring, hardworking, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We are a collaborative and driven group of people who take learning seriously and strive to make the kind of personal connections that help students succeed.

     This is my first year as the principal at Summit Elementary.  I taught first grade for one year, fourth grade for seven years, and for the last two years I have been a literacy facilitator.  I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know you and work with you as we begin a new school year together. As principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. I strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component in the success of our students as well as our school.  

     The Summit family is excited to welcome the following:

    Amanda Larsen:  Kindergarten Teacher
    McKell Evans:   Third Grade Teacher
    Kylie Youmans: Fifth Grade Teacher
    Wendi Cardon:  Speech Language Pathologist
    Angie Miggin:   Speech Language Technician
    Each new teacher comes highly qualified, and we are fortunate to add them to our team.

    Parents are invited to our Curriculum Night parent meeting on Thursday, August 29, 2019.  Parents will also have an opportunity to sign up for the PTA or School Community Council that same evening.  These organizations provide essential support to our school community.

    School Hours M-Th (9:10 a.m. first bell) 9:15 a.m.-3:35 p.m., F (9:10 a.m. first bell) 9:15 a.m.-2:20 p.m.

    In the interest of safety, please do not drop off your children before 8:45 AM, as there is no supervision before that time. Also, please be on time picking up children after school.  

    A.M. Kindergarten M-Th 9:15-12:15, F 9:15-11:35
    P.M. Kindergarten M-Th 12:35-3:35, F 11:15-2:20

    Arrival Time

    The first morning bell rings at 9:10 AM.  Our school day begins at 9:15 AM every day. Please be sure to have your child/children here on time. Students who are consistently tardy are at a clear disadvantage and usually arrive feeling frantic and unprepared. All students who arrive after 9:15 AM must sign in at the office. If your child is going to be absent, please call and inform our school office at  435-563-6269.

     Meal Prices and Menus:

    This year, school lunch will cost $2.05.  Breakfast, which is served from 8:45-9:05 AM, will cost $1.40.  Lunch menus will be sent home monthly and can also be accessed on our school website by clicking on the fork and knife icon under Popular Links.  To determine if your child is eligible for free or reduced lunch, an online application can be found and filled out on the district website (, or you may contact our office staff to get a paper application.  

    School Supply List:

    School supply lists for each grade level are available in the office and also posted on our school’s website: 2019-20 Supply Donation List 
    The items on this list will be used during the regular school day. They may be brought from home on a voluntary basis, otherwise, they will be furnished by the school.

     Drop off and Pick up:

    Drop off and pick up locations are on both the east and west side of Summit Elementary.  The west location is on 100 West, and clearly marked as bus zones and pick up zones. The east location, 80 West Center Street,  is accessed from Main Street.

     Bus Schedules:

    Bus schedules are available online: CCSD Bus Schedules and Boundaries.  Please be advised that the schedules change during the summer and are not finalized until the week before school starts.

     School Newsletter:

    Each month we email out an Eagles Nest Newsletter telling you what’s happening at Summit Elementary.
