October  2021
Dear Parents
 
Welcome to October!  Let’s hope we get cooler weather now.
 
I’m so sorry Back to School Night has been postponed.  Once Mrs. Nicole returns we will create the videos.  We are trying to post more information and pictures on our private Facebook to keep you informed as well. 
 
October is the start of some very busy months ahead for us.  Please be sure to read the newsletter, and watch for our Facebook posts so you are aware of all the happenings. 
 
Once again, our annual Oma’s Pumpkin Patch field trip will not be able to happen this year.  Oma’s pumpkin patch is open to the public, check their website for information; the website is www.omafamilyfarm.com. There s so much to see and do, you can make it a fun family outing.  Don’t worry; we are working on bringing the pumpkin patch here.
 
Even though Halloween is on a Sunday this year, we will still have our Halloween parties.  Be sure to check the sign in/out sheet. 
 
When dropping off or picking up your child, please follow the speed limit.  We have a retirement home behind us and there are residential houses across for us.

During the week of October 18 we will talk about pumpkins and how they grow, we will even have a small “pumpkin patch” so everyone can pick a pumpkin.  

See’s Fundraiser

 

LPCC will begin our annual See’s candy fundraiser in November and will have the orders back before Christmas. This is a big fundraiser event and the top class will win a lunch party.
 
We have an ongoing fundraiser with Mabel’s labels.  I   the labels and I am very happy with them; they even stay on in the dishwasher.  Just go to http://www.mabelslabels.com on the  upper corner click on support a fundraiser and then sear for Lakeside Presbyterian Children’s Center.

IMPORTANT:

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.
