Nuts & Bolts
November 12, 2018
Have a wonderful week!
I hope you're all enjoying the lovely weather and crunchy fall leaves. Thank you for your participation in Red Ribbon week and the interactive Gary Hogg presentations. Have a great week,
Jill is no longer employed with MMA. We appreciate her contribution to the school and wish her the best moving forward. Lana and I are meeting with the lower el team Monday to discuss the plan moving forward.
Please welcome Becky, who begins with us Monday to be a special education teaching assistant.
Student Injury Procedures Updated
When you send a child to the office with an injury you would like addressed, please also send a completed injury report with the child. If a child has a more severe injury that requires immediate attention, please walk them to the office and fill out the injury report as the office is addressing the injury.
If students are not feeling well, do not allow students to call their parent/guardians from their cell phones or the classroom phones.
Forgotten Stuff / Lunches
Cultural Festival Schedule
If you suspect that a child in your class has lice, please alert the office. If a case of lice is confirmed or a parent informs you that their child has lice, please communicate with all of the parents in the class using a standard letter from the office. I do not have it with me at this moment to attach here.
