A Note From Our Principal,
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities and fall festival! 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 participating in our Holiday Giving campaign. We will be supporting K.A.R.E. (Kids Are Really Equal) in providing Christmas gifts to lower income families. You will be able to select a child to help by picking a star from our start tree beginning November 18.
On Saturday, November 16th, we will hold a STEAM themed Open House from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. We will have some fun STEAM activities for children! Please join us to learn more about everything Carrington Academy has to offer. Current families, please invite your friends and neighbors to join us.
Illness Policy Reminder
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students 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 if they display any of the following:
- Fever of 101 degrees or more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
- Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
- Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 3-5 minutes
- Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
- Sore throat
- Skin rash
- Head lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
From 4:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Monday, November 4, we will have Spirit Night at Texas Roadhouse in Cumming. Anyone who dines there can mention Carrington Academy to help support our school. All proceeds will be put toward our efforts to buy a new sign for our school.
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a special feast on November 22nd at the regularly schedule lunch time for each class. Students are making their own place mats and look forward to enjoying some yummy Thanksgiving food with you. Please see your child’s classroom teacher to let them know if you’re able to attend. We will be sharing plenty of photos through Links 2 Home as well!
