Labor Day Holiday

Have a wonderful holiday weekend with family and friends! As a reminder, we are closed on Monday, September 2nd in observance of the Labor Day holiday.

Enrichment Classes Start Next Week

All enrichment classes begin next week (with the exception of Soccer Shots and the Monday classes - self-defense/jiu jitsu and piano - which begin the following week). Please submit your enrollment information no later than Tuesday to get enrolled for the first session. This is a great opportunity to not give up any additional evening or weekend times for these extracurricular activities.

Dress Code

As a reminder, students in Kindergarten and older are required to wear Merryhill uniforms each day of the week, unless they choose to participate in the special dress days on Fridays. Students must wear solid color bottoms that are not athletic bottoms, yoga pants, or leggings.


Uniform and spirit shirt order forms are available. We will place an additional order Tuesday afternoon and expect our previous orders to arrive any time.

Extra Clothes

Please ensure that your student always has a change of clothes in their backpack/cubby/locker in case of accidents or spills.


In addition, if you are ever getting rid of bottoms (pants, shorts, skirts) or underwear, we would love to add them to our extra clothes.

Medication

In order for us to administer medication, the following guidelines are required:


  • We can only administer prescription medication with the child's name and dosage label printed on it.
  • Over the counter medication must be in an unopened container.
  • Only the dosage instructions printed on the bottle can be used unless accompanied by a doctor's note with different instructions.
  • We administer at 11:00 and 3:00 only.

Grandparent's Day Breakfast - Friday, September 6th

Just a reminder that we will be hosting a Grandparent's Day Breakfast on Friday, September 6th from 7:00-8:15 a.m. It is a come and go event, and we look forward to celebrating the grandparents of our students by providing breakfast for them to have with their special grandchildren.
