MONDAY, OCTOBER 22……SCHOOL CLOSED. Teacher In Service day.
OCTOBER BIRTHDAYS will be celebrated on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24. If your child’s birthday is in October, please contact Mrs. Katz, our head room mother, to let her know what you would like to bring in. Her e mail is email@example.com. When there is multiple birthdays in a month, parents usually share in sending in mini cupcakes. Thank you.
We will be CELEBRATING A FALL FUN FEST, on Wednesday, October 31. We will have Trick or Treat bags for them, an art/craft activity and some games. This will be correlated by Mrs. Katz, and more information will follow…….stay tuned.
Please send in ONE roll of Paper Towels for October if you have not already done so. Thank you very much.
Parents please read…..NOTES about SNACK and LUNCH:
Please pack a spoon and /or fork every day in their lunch box if your child needs one.
We can only re-heat lunches. Please DO NOT pack lunches that have to be prepared and cooked, and do not pack frozen food. Thank you.
Please try to AVOID foods that have candy in them or candy toppings.
Do not pack candy. We encourage healthy eating habits at an early age. And, do not pack Purell bottles. (These can easily be shared with other children and there is alcohol in them.)
Kindly, Cut grapes in half if you pack them. They can easily choke on a whole grape.
Please Do Not pack notes OR money in lunch box. (except if your child is sent to Before care). Please hand them to us when you arrive. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
A NOTE ABOUT ILLNESSES:
Our school nurse is contracted for Kindergarten through 8th grade. We may no longer bring a PreK child who becomes ill to the nurse’s office. Also for any emergencies requiring your attention, either myself, or if there is a substitute teacher in charge, will call you if your child becomes ill or has a fever over 99 degrees and seems ill. You will be asked to pick your child up.
PLEASE NOTE: If a child has a fever, they should not return to school unless they are FEVER FREE for 24 hours WITHOUT Tylenol or Advil. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Notes about ARRIVAL and Pick up:
We open our door for ARRIVAL at 7:50. Not any earlier. You may drop off at Before Care beginning at 7 a.m. until 7:40.
You may only drop off your Pre K 4 child in our classroom.
Pre k 3 and Kindergarten – 8th grade children are to follow drop off procedures at the FRONT of the building. You may NOT send siblings through our doors to their classrooms. This is for Safety and Security reasons.
We will take your child to the bathroom at arrival if they have to go. You may NOT bring your child to the bathroom. Again, this is for Safety and Security.
We will be sure that all children have gone to the bathroom before dismissal. We cannot bring children to the bathroom when we are in the process of Dismissal. After Care children are at our door at this time, and children are being dismissed from downstairs. All this is happening near the bathrooms, and it causes too much confusion.
If you have a change in a ‘pick up’ person….grandparent, aunt, uncle, or babysitter that we have not yet met, you MUST send in a note with that person’s name or you MUST call the main office to let us know. If this person will be a regualr ‘pick up’ person, then, please send in a note stating this and we will keep it on record. If you do not send in a note or call the main office, we will call you to verify the change.
ABC CLUB (After Care Program):
Please send in a note with Payment for that day, or at the beginning of the week. If you do not, then you must call the main office and inform Ellen Fletcher that your child will be staying for ABC that day. Thank you.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Our priority is to educate your child and keep them safe at all times!!
