News from the Office…
We are right back into the swing of things and the kids are doing great! We practiced a few of our emergency drills this week and they did amazing with them as well!
Parents just a reminder that if you have to change how your child is getting home, please send a dated note to the teacher. Remember, we cannot change busses or ride a different bus home with a friend. That is a CRAZY part of the day for teachers and it is super helpful to have that note as a reminder!! Also keeping it as consistent as possible is helpful to not only the teachers , but the kids as well.
If you know your child is not going to be attending school for a day, please let the office know for attendance. You can also leave a voicemail if you call while we are not here. Thanks for your help with this!! We greatly appreciate it!
We have been going through paperwork that we may still need for your child. If any forms come home with your student, please sign them and return them to school as soon as you can. Thanks and have a great weekend!!!
