WE Did It!

Congratulations to all Warwick students, faculty, staff, parents and guardians for a successful first week of school. Our students demonstrated their Respect, Responsibility, Cooperation, and Excellence in all that they did. Our teachers and staff loved meeting their new students and leading them through lessons to help them learn about themselves and each other. We learned how to be flexible and adjust our schedule for an early dismissal on Thursday. We have had wonderful BTSN for 3rd - 6th grades this week. Then today, students met with Mrs. Leatherbarrow in small assemblies to talk more about RRCE at Warwick, how the word IF is important to our learning, and how to change a mistake or failure into a learning opportunity... Own it, Fix it, Learn from it, and Move on!

Thank You, PTO!

With one week of school in the books, we already have so much to be thankful for. New friends, new discoveries, and thanks to our PTO, new rugs and flexible seating. Additionally, PTO provided our entire staff with a luncheon during their staff development days before students returned. And to top it all off, they gave us beautiful new planters to help make Warwick beautiful and welcoming to all. Thank you, PTO!

Box Tops!

Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our school. Each one is worth 10¢ for our school! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and send them to school.

Last school year, we earned $2,252.50 for our school from Box Tops and used the money to support programs throughout Warwick Elementary. This school year, our goal is to earn $2,500.

All you need to do is clip them and send them in, but if you want more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to BTFE.com. Be sure to sign up as a member (it’s free!) so you can check out our school’s earnings details and get access to coupons and bonus offers.

Thanks for your help!

PSSA Note for 4th-6th Grade Parents/Guardians

Parent/Guardian Volunteer Requirements

Before parents and guardians can volunteer, they must have all necessary clearances. Click here so you are ready when volunteer opportunities arise.

Notes from the Nurse

As we return to school this fall, please take the time to check your children’s heads for lice. Stay vigilant with routine checks throughout the year. Please take a moment to review the CBSD Board Lice policy and report any active case to our Certified School Nurse, Ms. Puleo at 267.893.4065 or spuleo@cbsd.org.

Peanut/Tree Nut Safe Classrooms

As in years past, some Warwick classrooms have students with severe peanut/nut allergies and those classrooms will be identified as peanut/nut safe classrooms. Please keep an eye out for additional information from your child's teacher regarding the impact of being a part of a peanut/nut safe classroom. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our certified school nurse, Ms. Puleo at 267.893.4065 or spuleo@cbsd.org

Important Notes

Changes to Your Dismissal Plans

If it is necessary to change your normal pick-up routine at the end of the day, i.e., a different adult, bus rather than car, car rather than bus, a change in child care arrangements, etc., a written note must be presented to the classroom teacher, who will share the information with the office.

Any phone calls regarding a change in end-of-day plans must be directed to the office before 3:00 PM through a phone call (267-893-4055) or via e-mail and not directly to the classroom teacher, as teachers are engaged with students' learning and will not be able to check their email during the instructional day.

Excusing Student Absences

When your student will be absent from school, please use the Attendance Hotline (267-893-4055) to report the absence and email your student's teacher.

Here is a list of absence reasons that are excusable in PA Public Schools: illness, quarantine, death in the immediate family, religious holidays, home emergencies, and health care directly related to the student. Excuses must be called/emailed within three (3) days of the student’s return. State law requires that an explanation of absence be stated in order for schools to excuse an absence.

School Visits and Security

To protect our students and staff while school is in session, all exterior doors are locked during the school day. Parents, guardians and all visitors during the school day must enter the school using the Main Entrance. Please have a valid state issued photo identification card with you (e.g., PA License). You will use the buzzer at the exterior of our Main Entrance to state your reason for visit and show your ID. Once inside the vestibule, you will again need to be buzzed in. Once in the Main Office, you will swipe your PA Licence and receive a visitor's sticker stating your name, time ,and destination. Visitors must wear this sticker at all times and return it to the Main Office when you sign out to leave Warwick. This procedure is necessary for all visitors, even those that frequently visit and volunteer. We appreciate your support and patience.
