Here is some important information to help make a great start to the school year.
School begins at 8:10am. Children should not be dropped off before 7:55am, as there is no adult supervision until that time. Dismissal is at 2:15pm. Children are dismissed to their bus from the classroom. Walkers are to be picked up along the curb at the front of the school. If your child is being dismissed early, they must be dismissed from the office.
* If there is any change in transportation or dismissal for your child, I must have a note. Without a note, I am not permitted to allow children to change buses or go home with a friend. The note also serves as a reminder for me and your child.
We have a daily snack break each morning. I encourage all children to bring a healthy snack and drink. We do have peanut allergies in our school so snack must be peanut and tree nut free. Please, no glass containers.
First grade lunch time is 11:40 am. Our school cafeteria is cashless. Each child will be given a lunch card with his or her picture and personal pin number. This card/pin number will be used to make daily lunch purchases. Lunch cards will be kept in our classroom for safe keeping. Here is the link to add money to your child's lunch account and to see what your child is choosing to eat: https://paypams.com/HomePage.aspx
The children go out to recess at 12:05 pm. Recess is outside each day unless it rains or is extremely cold. Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.
Each day, students will take home their Everyday folder, which may contain important notices, newsletters, or your child's class work. Please look through and empty your child's folder each day and return it to the child's backpack. Please put any notes for me into your child's Everyday folder, as folders will be handed in to me each morning.
Keeping in Touch
If you should have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You may send a note, call, or email me. However, I ask that you do not leave changes in transportation or dismissal on my voicemail or email. Please call the school office if any dismissal changes arise during the school day.
