A Note From Our Principal
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities, pumpkin patch trips, and celebrations last month. Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween costumes and fall attire is on of the highlights of the year for us. This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with out community. As a part of this focus, we are busily preparing for our Holiday Giving campaign. This year we are collecting new books and pajamas for the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive. A book and pajamas will go to children who are in local foster care, victims of domestic violence, and any other children whose families’ income falls below the poverty level. We will begin collecting these items at our Fall Festival on November 21st and conclude with a Pajama day on December 6th to celebrate!
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 and/or nits
- 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.
We will be holding our Annual Fall Festival on November 21st 5:30-7:00 PM. The festivities will include raffle prizes, face painting, a cider press, a photo booth, crafts, and food! Please feel free to bring the whole family and even your friends.
