Celebrating Mrs. Duncan!

On February 25th, we will be celebrating Mrs. Duncan for "National Gifted and Talented Appreciation Week"! Mrs. Duncan is a light and an amazing resource to our students and our teachers. She works so hard to meet the needs of students, and we are looking forward to honoring her!

LUNCH MENU CHANGE - New HVAC being installed in cafeteria!

Beginning February 14th, a new HVAC will be installed in the cafeteria. The kitchen will not be used during this time frame. However, students will be going through the regular line to get food. To simplify food prep for Ms. Melinda during this possible six week process, we will be having the same foods from week to week. We have had to revise the weekly lunch schedule to the following:


Mondays - Beef/Hamburger Pizza

Tuesdays - Nacho Kit

Wednesdays - Cheese Pizza

Thursdays - Turkey and Cheese Croissant with Chips

Fridays - Pepperoni Pizza


Sides - Carrots, Icee, assorted Fruit

Drinks - Milk or water

TRANSPORTATION CHANGES

Parents,


If your child has a change in transportation at any time, please notify the office. Please do not only let your child's teacher know about this change. The office communicates and keeps track of these changes, so it is very important that they are aware. Thank you for your help with this!

Chromebook Safety

  • Cabot Public Schools has taken measures to ensure that district issued Chromebooks are safe to use.
  • The Chromebooks you received from the district are controlled by the Cabot Public Schools network.
  • Once a student logs into the device, the district can track how it is being used, where it is located, and control what is being downloaded.
  • GoGuardian has been installed on each Chromebook. This application restricts access to things on the internet that are inappropriate. Students will only be able to install approved software on their Chromebook. However, no filter will catch everything.
  • Please continue to monitor your child's use with a Chromebook.

Monthly Birthday Celebration


Our day of celebration for February birthdays/Valentine's Party will be held on:


Monday, February 14th


We will not be celebrating with treats on any other day of the month. We have very strict guidelines that allot only a certain amount of days to be able to have treats throughout the year. If you choose to send treats, please reach out to your child's teacher to discuss types of snacks to bring. Please drop treats off in the office and someone will take them down to the classroom. Parents will not be able to celebrate in the classroom. Thank you for your cooperation!
