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 during our Fall Festival 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 Giving Campaign. This year we are collecting canned and box goods for our Blessings In A Backpack that provides vital support for those in need. Our canned food drive kicked off on November 4th and we will be collecting through November 18th. Thank you in advance for your donations.
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 100 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, including diaper rash
- Head lice
- Symptoms of 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.
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a special lunch on November 22nd at their scheduled lunch time. Students are making their own place-mats and table decor for this fun event. Please check with your child’s classroom for any special instructions and sign up if you are able to attend. We will be sharing plenty of photos through Links 2 Home as well!
