The Peine Pride

October Edition


Date: Thursday, October 31st

Time: 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

We will only be allowing one food item and one drink item to be served in each classroom. This will be coordinated between the classroom teacher and room parents. This will help us better control the amount of food, risk of allergies, and amount of time staff loses checking food labels on party days.

All parents attending parties need to bring a valid ID. In order to attend parties, guests must be on our approved list of volunteers or not be on the Sex Offender Registry List.

During our Fall Party, we do allow students to dress up. Please be mindful of the following costume guidelines:

  • No masks
  • No weapons
  • Nothing scary or gory
  • Must be school appropriate

If you are unsure if a costume idea is school appropriate, please run it by your classroom teacher first.

Lunch Guest

We welcome families to visit during lunchtime. You need to first stop in the office, sign in, and wear a visitor sticker. If you attend lunch with your child, you need to say goodbye to your child in the cafeteria. Lunch guests are not allowed to walk a student back to class or attend recess. After lunchtime is over for your child, please return to the main office, sign out, and return your visitor sticker.

Also, remember you may not bring any food to share with any other students in the cafeteria. You may bring food for your own child if you wish.

Morning Arrival Parent Expectations

A quick reminder that our expectation is for students to walk themselves to class in the morning. If you need to speak to someone, you will need to pre-arrange this with who you need to speak with. Please tell this staff member to notify the office that they are expecting you before school. Parents should not expect to walk to class to talk to a teacher at arrival without the office being notified by the staff member. If you need to speak to the nurse, please let Mrs. Patty or Mrs. Kelly know and they will see if she is available to speak with you.

At any time during the school day, we ask that parents sign in the office and wear a visitor's sticker. Please know our staff is told to ask adults without a Wentzville ID Badge or a Peine Ridge Visitor Sticker why they are in the building. We are doing this to keep our students and staff safe throughout the building. Please always remember to have your visitor badge visible

Notes from the Nurse

Some Facts About Head Lice

Where children are present and playing, there is always the possibility of the presence of pediculus humanus capitis (head lice), which means there is a potential for there to be lice at school.

The WSD has aligned nurse practices with both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Association of School Nurses and we ask that parents keep the following information in mind:

  • Lice are not a disease.

  • Lice do not reflect unsanitary homes or students.

  • Lice are absolutely an inconvenience.

  • By detecting lice early, both parents and nurses can get ahead in the process.

Listed below are links to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the

National Association of School Nurses. There is also a video on what to look for when assessing if your child has head lice.
