TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention)

This year, we are continuing with our TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention) initiative. We are working hard at Poston Road Elementary to keep our students mentally and emotionally regulated throughout the school day. Along with nurture groups, we are providing our students the opportunity to bring water bottles to school to keep their hydration levels up. We are also providing snack breaks to keep their blood glucose levels up. This is where we need your help! We are asking families to donate prepackaged snacks (no nuts, please) for our students. This allows teachers the opportunity to quickly provide our students a snack break without major disruption to their academics. If you are willing to donate, please send the snacks into your child's teacher. We truly appreciate your help with this endeavor!

STUDENT ABSENCES

Please call in all student absences at (765) 342-8408 and select option "0" by 9:00AM for EACH day your student will be sick or late. If your student is going to be late to school for any reason, please make sure and let our office know ahead of time (if possible) by calling our office by 9:00AM that morning.


EARLY CHECKOUT....

Students will not be called out of class until a parent is present to sign them out. Please plan ahead for appointments, as we would like to minimize missed class time.
