Parent’s Page – Edition 4

Please note our school picture day is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24th.  Students in K3-11th 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 or dress.  Senior boys: Dress pants and shirt with tie.



Due to the half-day schedule for Grandparents Day on Friday, October 27th, we will be doing a Pizza Hut lunch on Thursday, October 26th.  If you would like to purchase a special Pizza Hut Lunch for your child to eat on Thursday, October 26th, please return your form with the payment by Tuesday, October 24th. Thank you.



Again this year we are planning a Fall Harvest Festival for our elementary 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 $5.00 per child and grandparents are free. School will dismiss at 12:00 noon on this date and Aftercare will not be available.



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.



Parents, if your child has a food allergy we would like you to know that all of our pre-packaged hot foods in the lunchroom have the following on the label: “Food contains wheat, milk, eggs, and soy.”  Our cheeseburgers contain sesame seeds.



If your elementary child participates in our aftercare program, please send them in with an extra water bottle to drink while outside after school. Some students may also be in need of an after-school snack which can be sent in their lunchbox.  All book bags, lunch boxes, jackets, etc. should be labeled with your child’s name.  Thank you!



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!



School standard dress must be worn for all school activities.  Students are not allowed to change out of their school uniform for any reason other than P.E. or sports practice.  Students who are not leaving school immediately after P.E. or practice must change back into their school uniform for aftercare and/or games.  Important:  Parents please remember that gym shoes for indoor P.E. and for rainy day recess must have a non-marking sole.  We recommend Velcro fastened shoes if your child cannot tie his/her shoes.


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.
