January 2021
Welcome 2021!
 
We made it, 2020 is behind us.  What a crazy year.  We are still not in the clear,; so please make sure to follow our “Safer Practices and Sick Child Amendment  COVID-19 policy. 
 
Playing outside is an important part of learning, even when the weather is cool.  Extra layers are a good way to help children stay warm.  Remember to put your child’s name on items to prevent them from getting lost.  With the weather getting cooler, it’s a good time to check your child’s spare clothes.  They might need to be changed out for bigger sizes or warmer clothes. 
 
Thank you to everyone who ordered See’s candy.  We made $906.77, that is just $200 shy of what we raised last year – and there was double the number of families .  With part of the earnings, we purchased portable Bluetooth speakers for each classroom. 
 
Thanks again for all your support, it is very much appreciated.

REGARDLESS IF IT IS READABLE OR NOT, AS LONG AS IT IS YOU’RE USUAL WAY OF SIGNING YOUR NAME.  NO ONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 IS PERMITTED TO SIGN YOUR CHILD IN OR OUT.  THE SIGN IN/OUT SHEETS ARE LEGAL DOCUMENTS.  PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR CHILD ‘SIGN’ ON THEM.

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.
