And We're Off!!!

Kutz opened its doors to welcome over 600 students this morning! After a summer that seemed to go by so quickly, everyone has quickly started to settle back into the school routine.

It was great to have little faces and voices back in the building!!

Thursday Folders

This year we will be using Thursday Folders to send home any important forms and/or flyers for parents. Every student has received a Thursday Folder. You will not need to purchase one for your child(ren).

Please keep an eye out for these each week!

Census Forms

Central Bucks needs to be sure we have your correct demographic information on file. Each year we ask you to review and verify a district Census Form. These will be coming home in this week's Thursday Folder. Please be sure to correct and/or update any information and return it to your child's teacher as quickly as possible. This is the information we use to send out newsletters, make phone calls, and contact you in the event of an emergency.

Some of you may have seen a link to do this online. That was intended for Cold Spring and CB South families only. While we may eventually switch to an online verification for all, at this time we ask that you make your changes/corrections on the paper copy and return it to Kutz.

Car Rider vs. Bus Rider

While we ask that you please allow your children to ride the bus whenever possible, we understand that there may be times when you need to pick up your child(ren) as a car rider.

If you do have to pick up your child, please be sure to display your "family name" placard in your car window to help facilitate the dismissal process.

Click here for the placard request form which will also be coming home in this week's Thursday Folder. Please be sure to fill one out and send it back into school ASAP so that the process can be a smooth and efficient one.

Thank you!

Summer Memories Board

Please remember to send in those summer memories photos!

We have begun to create a collage of summer memories on our front hallway bulletin board.

Photos may be dropped off in the school office or with your child's teacher. If you would like your photo returned, please put your name on the back of the photo.

Thank you!
