Dear Touchstone Families,
Each February, Touchstone School takes part in a Helping Hearts campaign as a way to focus on positive ways our students help out! Students will be coming home with a heart and more information. Your job is to help find a random act of kindness your child has taken part in and write it on the heart and return it to school with their teacher. The hearts will be collected all month long and displayed on the bulletin board in the entryway for everyone to see how Touchstone students help out. We love to fill up the board, so the more hearts you bring in the better! This lets us celebrate the many acts of kindness our students take part in every day.
On Valentine’s Day our classes will be having Valentines parties from 9:05am-10:00am. Teachers will be putting a sign-up sheet on their doors soon for items needed and for volunteers. As a reminder items brought to eat for class parties must be store bought, homemade items are not allowed due to state licensing. Students will be passing out valentines at this party. We ask that students only sign their names to their cards to make delivery easier, unless you are told otherwise by your teacher. Also as a reminder, we are a nut free school so no candies with nuts please!
With cold and flu season upon us and with the Washington measles outbreak we ask that all families be sure to follow our sickness policy. This is to keep students and staff healthy. As a reminder, parents must keep sick children at home until they have been symptom-free for at least 24 hours. We reserve the right to refuse admittance to any student who shows a sign of illness. Children who become ill at school will be made comfortable and parents will be notified to pick them up within one hour and may not return for at least one day and if symptom free for at least 24 hours.
