Uniform information and Dress Code

I am aware of the problems that some parents have experienced with Ibiley. I was hopeful for a very smooth transition but for various reasons we have had some issues.

I would like to explain that the plaid skorts and jumpers were delayed coming from the factory in China due to an issue with tariffs and customs as were some of the polos. I have been in frequent communication with the management of Ibiley.


If you have purchased uniforms but did not receive them, you can pick them up in the store beginning on August 6. If you did not yet purchase uniforms, I would suggest that you wait until August 6th. If you did not get your free red shirt (K and up) and have lost your form, pick it up in the office. One shirt per child please.


Here is the link to the school uniform policy / dress code for the 2018-19 school year. There were minor changes. We have eliminated the yellow polo, Khaki bottoms and the Island shirt, however, students who have them may still wear them next year only. Please do not buy new Khaki bottoms. Please be sure to follow the guidelines for purchasing shoes. Hard copies are available in the school office.

Class Assignment Cards

Class assignment cards will be mailed during the week of August 6th. You will have the card in plenty of time to be prepared for MEET THE TEACHER night. Please be the lookout for a white card in the mail. The card will remind you of the dates for both Meet the Teacher nights and the first day of school. It will remind you that there is early release on the first two days. Most of all, it will identify the teacher that your child has been assigned to as well as the room number.

School office hours until school begins

Summer camp is now over! Our school office will be open from 9AM until 4PM through Tuesday, August 14th. If you are unable to make it to the school during those times, we will do our best to accommodate you. Please call the school office at 305 893 0851.

Holy Cross Family Work Night

You are invited to join us on Wednesday, August 15th for our FAMILY WORK NIGHT.

We will begin at 5PM,but come whenever you are able. We will provide a light meal (probably hotdogs or pizza) and work together on inside jobs (classrooms) or outside jobs (working on the grounds, etc.) Service hours will be given for those adults that work. You may bring school-aged children with you but they must be under your supervision. Please avoid bringing infants or younger children.

PK and K4 uniform items, PE clothing

You will receive a TEXT ALERT and an email when we are fully restocked in early childhood tshirts and PE shirt and shorts. This should happen early next week. Please wait until you receive the message to come in and purchase items.

SUMMER READING INFORMATION

Please click on the link below to access the Summer Reading Information. This will link you to our website. Select books within the guidelines but please also know that WHAT your child reads is not as important as HOW MUCH your child reads. If your child is not old enough to read to him/herself, you should be spending at least 30 minutes per day reading to/with them. If your child can read independently, he/she should be reading at least 30 minutes per day.
