From the Director: 
 
Dear Parents, 
 
Here we are starting a brand new school year!  We said good bye to summer and hopefully to our hot weather as well!  We are so excited to begin our new school year.  We have lots of exciting things planned. 
 
You should have received the curriculumn and school calendar, if you have not yet received yours; please see your child’s teacher.
 
During the first few weeks, we may see tears, rarely tdo they last.  When dropping off your child give them a hug and tell them to have fun.  The more positive you are, the more reassuring it is for your child.  The staff has many years of experience and is ready to comfort your child.  Please feel free to call the office and see how your child is doing. 
 
To our new parents, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate in asking either your child’s teacher or myself.  We are here to make your transition easy. 
 
Please read the LPCC TIMES, our school newsletter to stay informed of upcoming events and all the news around here, things change fast!   Our school menu is provided monthly to each child when they receive the printed copy of the LPCC TIMES
 
You will soon be provided with our Emergency Preparedness packet, from your child’s teacher.  We will let you know what to do with it when it gets handed out.  
 
If you haven’t received your school t-shirt when you registered with us, please contact the office. 
 
Please make sure we have your correct email, in the future the newsletter and lunch menu will be emailed to you.
 
Again we welcome you, and have a super new year.

 If your child will not be in school for the day, please call the school.
 
Vacation requests must be in 2 weeks prior to start

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.
