A Note From Our Principal,
Summer has come to an end and another school year is upon us. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new families, and a sincere thank you to returning families and those that chose to spend their summer with us. We enjoyed making memories with your children!
We recognize that this is a busy time for many families and are using this month’s school newsletter to include reminders on school closures, communication, security and more. Please read through this newsletter carefully, and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Holiday Closures & School Year Calendar
Our school does not follow the local elementary school schedule as we are open more days per year. For the 2019-2020 school year the days we are closed are:
•Thanksgiving Day, and the day after
•New Year’s Day
We are also closed October 4th, March 13th, and July 26th for Professional Staff Development days.
You can access our school year calendar on our website for a printable version to use as a reference.
Links 2 Home
If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school. Links 2 Home also allows you to leave drop-off notes for your child and notify your child’s teacher of absences. If you’re having issues accessing Links 2 Home please let us know.
With so many new families starting in the fall this is a great time to review security procedures. Do you have a door code or multiple? Where is the SISO iPad located? Our SISO iPad is located in front of Ms. Erin’s desk as you walk in. Students must be signed in by a parent upon entering the school building, and then checked out at the end of the day as mom or dad come in to the building.
School Picture Day
We have already had our first picture day with In & Out. However, it’s time to get spiffed up for fall pictures again! Lifetouch will be taking photos of all of our students on September 20th. Please send your student to school in the clothes you want them to wear for their photo. All photos will be taken before lunch and naptime to ensure optimal cuteness. However, retakes will be offered in the event we don’t capture a smile.
Love our school? Leave us a review!
In today’s connected world, many families turn to online reviews to learn more about schools for their children. That is why we are asking you to take a few minutes to visit our school profile on Yelp, Google or GreatSchools to share the wonderful experiences you have had with our school. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!
