BUS REMINDER

Please do not pass the buses when the red lights are flashing. This includes the school parking lot and bus stops!  Some children may still be loading or unloading while you are trying to leave your stop.  We want all of our students to be safe as they prepare to come to school or depart for home.  Thank you for your consideration with this matter.  

ILLNESS POLICY

With so many of us having flu and/or upper respiratory symptoms, parents are reminded to review the school’s Illness, medication, and immunization policy located on page 38 of the Handbook.  Most importantly, to help reduce the spread of germs and sickness, students “SHOULD NOT return to school following an illness until ALL symptoms (temperature, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) have disappeared for at least a 24-HOUR period.” 

DUE TO SNOW DAYS

last week, we are postponing report card distribution until NEXT Monday, January 26.

EVENTS YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS

Mr. Rice will be hosting parent socials the first two Wednesdays in February. The first, Muffins for Moms, will be for all moms and their children on Wednesday, February 4, from 8:00-9:00 A.M. Children will be dismissed by 8:25 to go to class. Parents are encouraged to remain for casual, and possibly more formal, conversation. The second Wednesday, February 11, will be Doughnuts for Dads, and will be for all dads and their children. It will follow the same schedule. We hope to see you there.
