Important Reminders:

If there are any changes regarding a dismissal, please write a note and place it in your child's folder for me. If it is a change that happens after the school day has begun, please call the school at the earliest possible time. If possible, follow up with an email to me. 

  •  All books and supplies (as well as sweaters, jackets and coats) should have your child's name clearly printed on them.  
  • All written correspondence should be placed in your child's daily "Take Home" folder. I will use the same to communicate or respond to you. E-mail is my preferred method of communication. However, I am very flexible and will accommodate you and your preference. 

  • A healthy snack and a water bottle should be sent in every day (including half days). We are a peanut allergy aware school. Please keep this in mind when packing your child's snack. On gym days and days when the temperature is high, please pack an extra water bottle. VERY IMPORTANT!​ Please close any drinks securely before packing them in your child's lunch bag.
