Happy New Year! It was wonderful to see all of the children back in school this week, and we are starting 2024 off strong. It is getting colder outside, but we will continue to take students outside as much as possible unless it is raining. Please ensure your child dresses warmly and in layers!
We have a lot of exciting events planned this month!
If you would like a box of COVID rapid test kits, please ask your child’s teacher and one will be sent home in your child’s backpack. Please also test your child if they are showing any signs of illness including a runny/stuff nose, sore throat, cough, and fever.
If your child has a fever, they cannot come back to school until they are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication. If they have a fever at noon on Wednesday, they cannot come back to school until Friday at the earliest. Please let your child’s teacher know if they will be absent due to illness.
As a reminder, students should either be eating a lunch they bring from home or a school lunch during lunchtime. Recently some students have not brought a lunch, will not eat school lunch, and are asking other students to share their own food with them. For allergy and health reasons, students cannot share their own home food with other students. We will continue to encourage students to eat either their home lunch and/or school lunch. If a student declines to eat, they will be able to wait in the office until the eating portion of their lunch break is finished.
Mark your calendars:
Let’s make 2024 the best year yet!
