NEWSLETTER AND ELECTRONIC SIGN

Welcome Preschool and Kindergarten families:

This is Big Lake Elementary's bi-weekly newsletter that goes out to families via our Connect Ed program with an online link for you to view the newsletter. The newsletter will go out every other Thursday starting in September. It will have school information in it I hope you will find valuable. If you would rather receive a paper copy of the newsletter, instead of the online version, please email ble@matsuk12.us with your name, your students name, and teacher. I will send home a paper newsletter with your student.


I also post upcoming events/dates on the electronic sign at the entrance to the school.

LOST & FOUND CLOTHING

It's getting full already. If your child is missing a jacket, snow pants or boots, please come look in our Lost & Found.

PARKING LOT ENTRANCE/EXIT

The entrance and exit are by the electronic sign. The second entrance is for buses only.


Please watch for children when entering and exiting the parking lot. The speed is 5 MPH. Please drop your students at the curb by the yellow arch. When picking up your student from school, please park and come in.

The parking lot is one way, enter and drive in the lane closest to the building, drive around the end, and exit by the electronic sign.


Please drive slowly and watch out for our students.

Thank you.

LUNCH MENU

Breakfast and lunch are free for students at Big Lake Elem. If a lunch is brought from home: white or chocolate milk costs 75 cents; soy milk is $1. If your student would like a second hot lunch the cost is $3.50. You can also put money on their account for these purchases if needed. If your child has a food allergy, please contact our school nurse.

LIBRARY PAGES

Welcome back to library! I'm looking forward to a year of wonderful stories and fun. Please return the library letter signed as soon as possible so we can begin checking out books!


Kindergarten will not be bringing books home with them until 2nd quarter as they learn how to interact in the library and with books:)


If your child was missing books from previous years a notice was sent home with them.

NURSE RX

Parents,

All medications, prescription and over the counter which include cough drops, ibuprofen, Tylenol, and Tums, must be kept with the nurse. The nurse already has a supply of these and can give them with either written or verbal consent. No cold medications, herbal remedies, or vitamins may be given by the nurse without a doctors prescription. I hope this clarifies some confusion regarding medication at school.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call Nurse Moore at 892-9705

Thanks for sharing your children with me.

MUSIC NOTES

Band is offered during the school day for 4th & 5th graders, if your student is interested stop by the music room to pick up an info packet. Students need to have all their equipment and supplies before September so don't delay! There are some instruments available to rent.


Choir is offered before school Wednesday and Thursday 8:30am-9:00am for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders and started August 23rd. It's not too late to join, stop by the music room to pick up a permission slip!
