Congratulations, Mrs. Lindsey Harris!

We are thrilled to share with you that Lindsey Harris was recognized as a semi-finalist for Jessie Williams Little “Leading the Way” Award for outstanding mentorship at a banquet hosted at Winthrop University Thursday evening. Lindsey was one of twelve finalists of teacher mentors who were chosen from recommendations received from across the state. This award was established in honor of Winthrop alum, former faculty member, and veteran teacher Jessie Little, as a recognition of the critical role mentors play in going above and beyond to support preservice and new teachers. We are so very proud of Mrs. Harris!

Important Reminders

*School begins promptly at 7:45 am (the first bell rings at 7:40 & the tardy bell rings at 7:45). After 7:45, a parent or guardian must sign their child in at the front office.

*All car riders must be picked up by 2:45 each day. We do have a paid After School Care Program. Information can be provided by the front office.

*Please use the car lines to drop off and pick up your child.

Prescriptions from Nurse Beth

All students are required to have an up-to-date immunization certificate on file in order to stay in school. If you have been contacted about this, please make sure this is taken care of no later than Friday, September 14th.

If your child has been ill, remember the 24 Hour Rule of Thumb:

· 24 hours fever free without any fever reducing medications (Tylenol, Motrin) for 24 hours before returning to school

· 24 hours without nausea, vomiting, & diarrhea (and tolerating a normal diet)

· 24 hours of receiving medication such as antibiotics, eye ointment/drops

Remember students may not transport medications to and from school. A parent/guardian must bring in all medications.

Let’s stay healthy! Studies have shown that school absenteeism due to illness is reduced when good hand washing is practiced (before & after eating, after restroom use & playing outside).

It is my privilege to care for your child while here at school. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
