Student Arrival Concerns
While there has not been an official policy surrounding student arrival times, I'm asking that students do not arrive more than 5 minutes prior to breakfast (8:40 AM) and no more than 5 minutes prior to the first bell (9:05 AM) if they are not eating breakfast. We will begin communicating home for any students who continue to get to school too early.
Body Safety Lessons by NOVA
Quakertown Elementary is proud to offer body safety lessons presented by NOVA.
NOVA’s personal safety programs build safe body boundaries.
In uncomfortable situations, children learn to listen to their feelings, say “no”, if they can, get away and always tell their trusted adult.
Programs will be offered to K, 1st, 4th, and 5th on October 19, 2022.
2nd and 3rd grades will receive their program on October 20, 2022.
If you have any questions about the lessons, please reach out to Eileen Bruchak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
