VIRTUAL PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES
Just a reminder we will be conducting conferences virtually through Google Meet. It has come to our attention that parents joining Google Meet will be prompted to log into a Google account after clicking the meeting link. If you do not have a Google account, you can either create one here or use your child's school Google account information to join the meeting with a personal device or your child’s school-issued Chromebook.
If you or your child does not know their account information please email or call the Winkler/Lyons office. Also, if you scheduled a virtual conference and have not received an email with a Google link, please email your child’s teacher for the link.
Due to conferences being scheduled back to back, any issues with video conferencing will result in the conference being conducted via telephone or rescheduled at a later date.
A HALLOWEEN MOON
October’s second full Moon appears on Saturday, October 31, making Halloween night extra special this year. This full Moon is known as the Hunter’s Moon, as this is the time of year when humans and animals alike are stocking up on food in preparation for the long winter ahead.
Just how rare is a full Moon on Halloween? Find out here!
Because the Hunter’s Moon is the second full Moon in the month of October, it is also considered a “Blue Moon.” This term refers either to the second full Moon to occur within a single calendar month or to the third full Moon in a calendar season. Despite the name, the Moon won’t actually appear blue-tinged; it will be its normal golden hue near the horizon, transitioning to a bright white overhead.

UW Extension's next Positive Solutions for Families workshop series begins Nov 10th. We still have a few spots left!
Just a reminder to perform regular head lice checks on your child. Checking weekly or even daily is a good idea to catch it early in the event lice would be making a new home in your child’s hair. Sleep-overs, slumber parties, taking “selfies” with friends, and sharing hats or hair accessories have been determined to spread lice most often.Please review the Burlington Area School District’s procedure for lice which can be found on the School Health Services website page: http://www.basd.k12.wi.us/health_services.cfm BASD follows recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and National Association of School Nurses.
*Please note: If your child takes a cold lunch she/he will be charged 30 cents if they would like milk. Please consider keeping some money in your child's Skyward lunch account for milk if they take cold lunch. Students will be encouraged to drink water if there are no available funds in Skyward.
BASD's offers preschool screenings for *parents concerned about their child's development*. This is for children between the ages of birth to 5 years old. This is different than the 4K or 5K kindergarten screening.
