SCHOOL PICTURE DAY

Please note our school picture day is scheduled for Thursday, October 20th.  Students in K4-11th grade must be dressed in their school uniform and will be photographed as individuals and as a class for our yearbook. Order forms have been sent home with each student and payment is due at the camera.  Seniors only are allowed to wear Sunday Dress. Senior girls: Modest blouse with sleeves and knee-length skirt.  Senior boys: Dress pants and shirt with tie.

 

GRANDPARENTS’ DAY – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28th

Again this year we are planning a Fall Harvest Festival for our Grandparents.  Parents, we need your help in order to make this day a success!  If you would be willing to volunteer, please contact the School Office.  Please make sure you R.S.V.P. if your child’s grandparents will be attending so we can prepare.  The cost is $4.00 per child and grandparents are free. School will dismiss at 12:00 noon on this date and Aftercare will not be available.

 

FORGOTTEN MATERIALS TABLE

A table has been set up outside the School Office for parents to drop off forgotten materials.  All materials such as homework, books, clothing, projects, lunch boxes, etc. must be labeled with the child’s name and grade level. The front office staff will notify your student’s teacher that the materials are at the front office for the student to pick up.  For the lower grades (K3-K5) one of our teacher aides will deliver the materials to your child’s classroom.

STUDENT DROP-OFF—STOP, DROP & ROLL

During morning drop off there is only one lane for drop off in the back parking lot.  K3- K5 and 2nd grade parents should use the lane directly in front of the Kindergarten modular for drop off.  Children 3rd grade and up should be dropped off in front of the church building.  Children in 4th and 6th grade may choose to be dropped off in the back parking lot, but keep in mind that this line is slower as the aides must escort each kindergarten child into their classroom.  The speed limit is 5 mph at all times on our parking lot.  Please do not attempt to pass a car during the morning drop off for the safety of all children. Thank you.

 

PSAT TESTING RESCHEDULED

The PSAT Testing for 10th and 11th grade students has been rescheduled to Tuesday, October 25th.

 

MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION

We wish to remind families that due to Maryland state law, if a student needs to receive any medication at school, we must have a medication form on file signed by your child’s doctor.  The medication ordered by the doctor should be sent in the original container with the child’s name on it.

 

VISITOR POLICY

Parents, if for any reason you need to come to school during the day, please remember to check in at the School Office in the gymnasium.  No parent or family member should attempt to approach a classroom before first checking in with the School Office.  You must sign your name on our register and receive a visitor pass before proceeding to your child’s classroom.  This is part of our school security policy and ensures that we have a record of everyone on our campus at all times.  Thank you for your cooperation!

 

 

SICK POLICY

Please remember that students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school.  A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child.  Please do not send your child to school within a 24 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea.  No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
