10 Reasons Why Kids Should Learn to CODE

COATS, WATER BOTTLES, ACCESSORIES, OH MY!!

We have a HUGE assortment of coats, water bottles, gloves, and MORE in our lost and found. And when we say HUGE, we mean - IT IS FULL! We have to clean this area out and we know that these coats have owners. Please encourage your child to look for their lost items in our Lost and Found!!

Visitors in the building

At this time, we are able to allow visitors as volunteers in the workroom to help teachers with copies and lamination. Visitors are still not allowed to eat lunch with students at this time.

VISION AND HEARING SCREENINGS

Hearing and vision testing for K, 1, 2, & 4th grades will be conducted in November and December.

Breakfast Times

Breakfast is served daily from 7:30-7:50. Instruction begins at 8:00. Students should be finished eating breakfast by then so they can begin instruction.

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 December birthdays will be held on:


Friday, December 17th


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!
