A Note From Our Principal,
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities and classroom celebrations last month. Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween costumes and fall attire is one of the highlights of the year for us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of these special occasions! This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with our community. As part of this focus we are busily preparing for our Holiday Canned Food Drive. This year we are collecting canned food for our local homeless shelter to provide much needed nutrient. We are kicking off donations starting November 1 and going through the 22nd.
Illness Policy Reminder
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students and teachers in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate.
Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours without medication if they display any of the following:
- Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
- Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
- Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
- Sore throat
- Head lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our leadership team.
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a special lunch on November 22nd at noon. Students are making their own placemats, hats and table décor for this fun event. Please check with your child’s classroom for any special instructions and feel free to attend if you’re able. We will be sharing plenty of photos through Links 2 Home as well!
