Arriving to School
PreK Parents - Arrival time is AFTER the K-4 drop off. That means you shouldn’t arrive BEFORE8:35 because it is causing confusion for K-4 parents and there is congestion for buses and mini-buses. Therefore, after 8:35, preschool parents can wait in the stacking lane. Only 4 cars at a time in the stacking lane; otherwise, please wait along the side of Thelma Drive until there is room to move into the stacking lane. At 8:45, we start to allow cars to drive behind the school. Safety is top priority so I appreciate your assistance with this matter. If it does not improve, I will have to revisit the entire pre-school drop off system which will not be as easy as it is currently. Thank you.
Flu Clinic...Mark Your Calendars
Has your family gotten the flu shot? There will be a flu clinic held at Hope Valley School on Thursday, October from 4:00-6:30 pm. All adults and children, age 3 and older, are welcome to attend the clinic and get vaccinated at no out-of-pocket cost.
Reminder: the flu is a serious, sometimes deadly disease. It is also highly contagious. Catching the flu means missing days of work and school, and possibly being hospitalized. Don’t take the risk – protect yourself and your family by getting the flu shot.
If you have any questions, please call the RIDOH information line @ 401-222-5960. Thank you.
Summer Reading Information
Hope Valley School is proud of our summer readers who stayed in great reading shape over the summer months! We will celebrate them with a special reading session on the front lawn of the school on Tuesday, September 17. Students can bring a blanket/beach towel and a book to read and we will enjoy our books on blankets with popsicles. Way to go readers!
