Week of November 29 - December 3
We are thankful for our FABULOUS Paloma community!
Qualtrics - Health Screening
Toys and Candy at school
We have seen an increase in students bringing toys and candy to school and are asking for your help.
Please remember that toys (pop-its, fidgets, electronic toys, cards, sports equipment, etc) are not allowed at school. We know that pop-its and fidgets especially are very popular right now and that kids want to trade them and play with them, however, they cause a distraction at school. Please have your children keep toys at home. If they would like to trade with a friend and it is ok with you, they may trade them at home, rather than at school. Further, we provide sports equipment for students to use at school and request that they keep their personal baseballs, bouncy balls, etc at home. Your assistance with this is greatly appreciated and supports our focus on teaching and learning.
Additionally, we understand that sweet treats are popular this time of year. We do ask that you limit the amount of sugary treats/candy that your child brings in their lunch, backpack, and/or pockets. A single treat for students to enjoy after they eat their lunch is plenty for one school day. Even better would be to save the sweet treats/candy for at home. Thank you in advance for your help with this.
Please LABEL student items
PLEASE PUT YOUR CHILD'S NAME ON JACKETS, SWEATSHIRTS, AND SWEATERS in addition to lunch boxes and water bottles.
Safety at Arrival and Dismissal
If you are dropping off or picking up students in the school loops, it is important to always be focused on safety.
- Please remember to stay in your car, be alert.
- Please move forward as directed by the school staff.
- Students have been instructed to move forward and look for their rides. Pulling all the way to the front of the line without leaving gaps is the best way to ensure that all students are dismissed in a timely manner. We will make sure that your student finds you as soon as possible.
- Please proceed through the loop in a line. Going around the line and cutting into empty spots is dangerous as we have students entering and exiting cars all throughout the loop as well as students and families who are using the crosswalks.
At this time, we cannot permit food to be brought in to share with classmates as part of a birthday celebration. We absolutely wish to recognize and celebrate our students' birthdays!
If you would like to send something in to celebrate your child's birthday, please consider non-food items such as bookmarks, pencils, shape erasers, or another non-food item. Additionally, we do have a Birthday Book donation program. You can read more about it here:
Masks and Water Bottles
Also, all water fountains are closed at this time due to health and safety concerns. Students have access to faucets to fill their water bottles as needed.
Thank you in advance for your help in sending your children to school with masks and water bottles each day. Thank you!
