From the Desk of Mrs. Adelman

We have officially began the 2021-22 school year! It was a pleasure to welcome the students back to school on Monday and we had a great couple of days together! On behalf of the entire Warwick staff, we hope that our Warwick families and community members are all safe after the storms on Wednesday evening. If we can help in any way, please do not hesitate to reach out to me and/or any member of our Warwick staff. We are a community that comes together whenever we are needed!


Please reach out to me directly with any questions.


Thanks for a great start to the 2021-22 school year!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Amy Adelman

Warwick Bear Pledge and Student Code of Conduct.

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Our goal at Warwick is to provide all students with a safe and respectful learning environment. In order to support that goal, we use positive reinforcement to recognize students who are following the Warwick Bear Pledge and our Warwick Themes - Respect, Responsibility, Cooperation, and Excellence. Students have the opportunity to earn Power Paws by demonstrating one or more of our Warwick Themes and student Power Paw selections are read each Friday!


We also have a consequence system, Warwick Behavior Notices and Conduct Reports, for students who make choices not consistent with the Warwick Bear Pledge. Behavior Notices will be used as a warning system and an opportunity for student reflection. After two behavior notices, a student will receive a conduct report for the next offense. Additionally, conduct reports can be used if the behavior warrants.

The consequences for receiving a conduct report are:


1st time: Referral to the office and discussion of behavior with Mrs. Adelman. Phone call home from the office.

2nd time: Loss of privilege AND parent meeting with Mrs. Adelman
At the meeting we will discuss an individualize plan.

We recognize that all students make mistakes, and we want them to learn from those mistakes. We use these opportunities to discuss your child’s behavior with them and create a goal for the future.


We appreciate your understanding and support!

Warwick Student Directory

In the coming days, we will publishing a Warwick directory. The directory will be password protected. It will included names, contact information, and homeroom teacher. If you would prefer your contact information to not be included in the Warwick directory, please send an e-mail to Mrs. Taggart (ntaggart@cbsd.org), our school secretary, by Friday, September 10th. If we do not hear from you, we will assume you would like to be included in the directory.

Attendance Information

The Central Bucks School District will be changing the way in which absences are reported. The following items are some key points to be aware of.

  • Parents and guardians will be able to submit absence requests via the Parent Portal. Parents can request a full day absence, early dismissal, or late arrival.
  • Absence requests will be reviewed by school attendance staff and approved or denied.
  • Requests made using the parent portal will also serve as the excuse for the absence. Parents will not be required to submit an excuse either electronic or written.
  • Parents and guardians can also still call the school to report an absence, but emails will no longer be accepted.

In addition, when a student is absent from school, but the school did not receive communication from the parent or guardian, the following communication will be sent:

  • A text message will be sent midmorning notifying the parent or guardian of the absence
  • An email will also be sent at the end of the school day reminding the parent or guardian that the student was marked absent.

Information regarding how to use the Parent Portal to report an absence can be found here.

Thank you,

CBSD Administration

CB Farmers Market at Barclay Reopens on Wednesday, September 8th at 4:30

Any Central Bucks family who may need a little extra food assistance is welcome to join us on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of every month at Barclay Elementary School. Our drive-up food distributions run from 4:30 to 5:30 PM. We generally have free dry goods, fresh produce, milk, eggs, and bread, and often have some frozen meat and poultry. At each event we pass out an average of 12,000-15,000 pounds of food.

The CB Farmers Market started in 2019 as a monthly market that distributed free produce. At the start of the pandemic, we recognized a significant need in our community, with many families needing food assistance for the first time in their lives. As our operations grew, so did our network of amazing individuals and community organizations—all of whom are committed to addressing food insecurity in the Central Bucks School District. By our estimates, 1,500 CB children may experience temporary or chronic food insecurity—a statistic which should not exist in a community with our resources. Our completely volunteer-run and managed organization was founded on two beliefs: 1) During times of need, which we all experience in one form or another, we should be able to count on the compassion and support of our neighbors; and 2) Our community’s collective commitment to our children is a bond much stronger than all of the other forces that might otherwise divide us.

We hope to see many families at our food distribution on September 8th at 4:30. No advanced sign-up is necessary. We kindly ask that you do not line up before 4:30, and that you do not block our neighbors’ driveways. They are very understanding and supportive of our work, but also need to come and go during our events. This month, with the support of many generous donors, we’ll also have a large stock of free school supplies. If you have any questions about the market, please e-mail jbrereton@cbsd.org or mamcdonald@cbsd.org.
