Parents can now join us for lunch!

Beginning March 28th, parents can now come back into the building for LUNCH, and we are so excited! We do have a few guidelines to follow as we try to get back to this normal routine:


*Students can not have friends join them at lunch - the student can eat with their parent, but no friends can come.

*Parents are allowed to bring lunch in from a restaurant or home for their child.

*You will have to be checked in at the office before you are able to go to lunch. Please have your driver's license with you in case we need to put it into our system. You will have to wear a name badge that is printed from the office in order to eat in the cafeteria.

*You will need to wait in the office area until your child's class comes to the cafeteria for lunch.

*There will be a specific area in the cafeteria designated for parents and their kids.


WELCOME BACK!

TRANSPORTATION CHANGES

Parents,


If your child has a change in transportation at any time, please notify the office. Please do not only let your child's teacher know about this change. The office communicates and keeps track of these changes, so it is very important that they are aware. Thank you for your help with this!

Chromebook Safety

  • Cabot Public Schools has taken measures to ensure that district issued Chromebooks are safe to use.
  • The Chromebooks you received from the district are controlled by the Cabot Public Schools network.
  • Once a student logs into the device, the district can track how it is being used, where it is located, and control what is being downloaded.
  • GoGuardian has been installed on each Chromebook. This application restricts access to things on the internet that are inappropriate. Students will only be able to install approved software on their Chromebook. However, no filter will catch everything.
  • Please continue to monitor your child's use with a Chromebook.

Monthly Birthday Celebration


Our day of celebration for April birthdays will be held on:


Friday, April 22nd


We will not be celebrating with treats on any other day of the month. We have very strict guidelines that allot only a certain amount of days to be able to have treats throughout the year. If you choose to send treats, please reach out to your child's teacher to discuss types of snacks to bring. Please drop treats off in the office and someone will take them down to the classroom. Parents will not be able to celebrate in the classroom. Thank you for your cooperation!
