A Note From Mr. Christ
Dear Paddock Families,
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I am extremely grateful for the generous donations the Paddock community has gathered as a part of the PTA's Fun Run fundraising event. The students have been extremely excited hearing the daily updates and getting their bracelets and raffle tickets. In the classrooms, hallways, and recess, they are frequently heard talking about the event...although usually they are happiest about the idea of Mr. Christ getting slimed. Thank you to everyone for your efforts in supporting this event.
AM Kindergarten - Tuesday @ 8:30am
Bilingual and PM Kindergarten - Tuesday @ 12:05pm
Additionally, on Friday, October 15th we will be having our first lockdown drill of the school year. House Bill 2400 (The School Safety Drill Act) states:
All lockdown drills will be announced to all school personnel and students prior to the commencement of the drill.
Schools will provide sufficient information and notification to parents and guardians in advance of any lockdown drill that involves the participation of students.
Schools will provide parents and guardians an opportunity to exempt their child for any reason from participating in the walk-through lockdown drill.
Schools will provide alternative safety education and instruction related to an active threat or active shooter event to students who do not participate in a walk-through lockdown drill to provide them with essential information, training, and instruction through less sensorial safety training methods.
Building administrators will notify families of upcoming drills at least one week in advance of the drill. If you prefer your child does NOT participate in the yearly required lockdown drills, please complete this form. Please submit one form for each of your children you are opting out.
If you have any questions regarding this, please reach out to Mr. Christ or Ms. Walsh.
Paddock Fun Run 2021 is in full swing. Thank you for everyone's support and generosity.
