Lunch

2nd Grade's lunch time is 11:30-12:00.


Snack

Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle and ONE healthy snack (nothing that requires a spoon). We will eat it in the morning. Please make sure to put your child's name on their bottle. Since our snack is eaten in the classroom, only WATER is permitted.


Dismissal

School is dismissed at 3:00. Always bring your pick up sign with you when picking up your child. This helps our car line go much faster and it ensures our students get home safely. If dismissal plans ever change, please email the teacher in plenty of time or call the office so they can get the message to the teacher.

📆 Our Schedule This Week

IPADS & Headphones

Returning students should already have their ipad. New students will be receiving Ipads very soon!


All Students NEED to have their Ipad charged everyday! We use our ipads everyday, so it is very important the ipads have a full battery each morning.

Teachers do not have extra chargers or outlets to charge dead ipads. Please remind your child to charge their ipad each night before going to sleep.


Students will also need working headphones. These tend not to last the entire year, so do not be surprised if you are asked to buy another pair before the end of the year
