Important information

-Grandparent program is February 5 at 12:30pm in the gym. Following the program Grandparents are invited back to the classrooms to see where their grandchild attends school. At that time students are allowed to go home with their grandparents. PARENTS MUST FILL OUT AND RETURN A PERMISSION SLIP FOR THE STUDENT TO GO HOME WITH THEIR GRANDPARENT. If your child does not have a grandparent able to come this day, then a substitute grandparent is welcome. Permission slips are due January 28th at the latest.

There will be NO After School Program on February 5

Due to the fact that in past years, we have had very few students stay in the After School Program on Grandparents Day, the After School Program will not operate on February 5. There will be NO After School Program on Grandparents Day. If your child will not be going home with a grandparent, please make other arrangements. Thank You.

-Exchanging Valentine's cards is a favorite activity for elementary students. All students may bring in valentines to exchange on Friday, February 12. Due to our policy on snacking and food allergies, children are NOT allowed to bring in valentines with ANY type of candy attached to them or valentines that are packages of candy. There is no way to monitor and ensure that all candy brought in is on the safe snack list. IF your child brings cards with candy, we will have to send them back home. Thank you for helping us keep all of our children safe.
