Upcoming Community Service Drive
The Potter Road School will be running a stocking stuffer drive to benefit and support children who are in the care of the state through the Department of Children and Families. This drive will be run and supported by the Potter Road fifth grade student council. We will be sharing further details and information about how to donate following the Thanksgiving break!
Important November Dates
Communication from Potter Road Room Parents
Room parents will be reaching out through email shortly to introduce themselves as a resource for our teachers. To opt-out of future email communications from your child's room parents, please compete the form below. This will remove you from important information about the class, upcoming events and opportunities to volunteer as part of the school community. Please note that classroom lists will be shared with room parents next week. If you would like to opt out, please do so this week.
Student ID Cards for Breakfast and Lunch
All students will continue to have access to free breakfast and lunch each school day. Starting this past week, students have begun using their own unique student identification number when getting breakfast and/or lunch. This number is found on their student identification cards that are distributed to all students. The purpose of this is to ensure that when a student is getting breakfast and/or lunch, they are not receiving food that they might have an allergy to. When a student scans their card or enters their identification number, any documented food allergies will be alerted to our dining hall staff, who will then offer safe alternatives.
All students have two identification cards that were provided to them at the beginning of the school year. One card was secured to their backpacks. As students enter into the cafeteria in the morning to get breakfast, this is the card that should be used. If a student does not have their card, their information can be looked up by our cafeteria staff. Having the card ready for breakfast helps the process move along quickly and efficiently for all students. Students were reminded to have their cards ready for breakfast.
