Spring Musical 2019

It’s time for our annual musical! This year we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Arbor Academy by singing some of our favorite songs from the last 20 years! Each classroom has a different song so be sure to touch base with your student’s teacher to see what their costume will be. This year we are asking for donations of water bottles and juice boxes/pouches to serve to families before the show.

Date: March 14th, 2019

Where: Lakeview Middle School Auditorium

Time: Students must arrive at the school for a dress rehearsal at 5:15pm, doors will open for the audience at 5:45pm, the show starts at 6:00pm.

Winter Weather Gear and Recess

Please continue to send all the essential winter weather gear to school with your child; boots and inside shoes, hat, snow pants, gloves, etc. We have outdoor recess unless the temperature or wind chill is below 10 degrees. Make sure your child is prepared! Additionally if your child is well enough to be at school, we expect they are well enough for outdoor recess. If they need to stay in a Dr’s note is required.

School Closing Information

As winter weather approaches, I would like to review some of Arbor’s practices and procedures in the handbook regarding school closings. Specifically, we ask that you watch WWMT (Channel 3) or WOOD (Channel 8). We will make every effort to announce the closing by 6:30 am. Also follow us on Facebook and/or sign-up for Remind to receive school closings and news information.

Spring Pictures from Lifetouch

Spring Pictures will be taken on March 13th. This is also a non-uniform day. Order forms went home on 3/1. Picture package order form and money is due at time of pictures. Pictures will be taken in the morning before lunch.

Lost and Found Items

Is your student missing any items? Our lost and found is growing. Ask Mrs. Kok or Mr. Jason to take a look at our lost and found.

Tis the Season for Sickness

This time of year, unfortunately, is when we start to see illnesses creep up and spread around school. Please know that we actively send students home that are sick, and will notify you if someone in your child’s class was diagnosed with a contagious illness/condition. We, as always, teach the students the importance of good hand washing, and also encourage the use of sanitizer. Please keep your child home if they have a fever, vomiting, and diarrhea. We want to keep our students healthy!

Safety Reminder!!!

We would appreciate it if students did not arrive at school in the morning until 8:00 am. We have supervision available at that time. Students are not to be dropped off at the center island between schools. There is absolutely no parking in the fire lane even if it’s only for a brief period. Parents may park in the parking lot or available spaces in the middle island and walk their child to class. For parents dropping off at the K-3 building, please remember to turn left before the CDC drive, and then exit or proceed to the 3-6 building. Small children are present under the CDC canopy quite frequently, and drive thru traffic for school drop off is prohibited. A reminder to parents to please not leave your car unattended in the circle drive between 8:00 – 8:30 am and between 3:00 – 3:35 pm. This allows us to provide a free flow of traffic and to safely unload/load the students into your car.

ARBOR ACADEMY IS A SMOKE AND DRUG FREE ZONE! No smoking on school grounds/property. Thank you for your cooperation.
