From the Director: 
 
Dear Parents, 
 
We are happy that we finally have cooler weather.  October was a busy month for us:  school pictures, our yearly trip to Oma’s Pumpkin Patch and our Halloween parade. 
 
Thank you to everyone that supported our fundraiser by eating at Rubios’s – raising month for our school never tasted so good!  This month, November we will begin our See’s fundraiser, and if you are interested in purhasing some gifts, or just for you to enjoy, stopy by the Church office.  Also, the Box Tops were mailed in and a check is pending so a big thank you to our parents and to the Church congregation who continue to collect. 
 
November will be a action packed month.  To observe Thanksgiving we will be having a feast.  All the classrooms will have lunch together, and just be thankful for all the God has given us – of course we can’t forget the pumpkin pie.  It is such a blessed and fun day. 
 
Continuing in the them of being thankful, we want you to know that we are very thankful for the wonderful support we receive from you.
 
Blessings
Shawn Santo

ILLNESS POLICY:

 If your child has a fever, vomits or has diarrhea at school or home, they may not return to school for 24 hours after the symptoms are gone.It is very important to keep your child home if they are not feeling well.  If you have any doubts it is better to keep your child home one more day than to send then to school when they are not quite up to it.  If your child has conjunctivitis (pink eye) they may not return to school until they have received antibiotic treatment for 24 hours.  Remember good handwashing is very effective in keeping disease from spreading.  Our policy will cut down on the transition of disease to other children, and our staff.

EMERGENCY INFORMATION

If anything has changed with your emergency or contact information, please contact the Preschool Office so we can update and be sure we have your correct information.  When a little one is ill, time is of the essence in trying to reach a parent.  In addition if working, please leave-detailed instructions if needed to make it easier for us to contact you at work.  Cell phones are not always reliable.  We need a back up way to reach you.
