Lunch with Loved Ones - May 31, 12:15-1:00

We are so excited to bring back Lunch with Loved Ones! During Field Day on Tuesday, May 31, families are invited to join us for lunch. This will be picnic style! You can choose to order school lunch or bring lunch for your family. An order form will come out soon with details.

You are welcome to stay the remainder of the day. We will have Kona Ice for students and staff that day after lunch but, unfortunately, they will only be able to serve the Springfield students and staff.

We hope you can make it!

Field Trip Chaperones

For the safety of our students, a few reminders about being a chaperone for Springfield Field Trips:

  • You MUST have an approved volunteer form.
  • Only the chaperone will be allowed to attend the trip. Due to liability issues, we cannot have other siblings or friends attend the field trip.
  • You will be actively supervising students and helping to make sure they are following school procedures and expectations.
  • For the privacy of all students, please do not take pictures of any child other than your own. If this staff is taking a picture, they will make sure that all students in the picture have been cleared to have their picture taken.

If you have any questions, please contact the Springfield Office.

Notes from the Nurse:

-5th grade parents: Ms. Tarnow will be sending home a letter with some 5th grade students about immunizations needed before 6th grade. If your student doesn't receive the letter, it means they already received those immunizations. The required immunizations are the Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines. Please send in the updated record to the nurse after they're received.

-If your student has medication in the Nurse's Office, Ms. Tarnow will be sending a "Medication Return Authorization" letter home soon asking you what to do with that medicine on the final day of school. Please mark your response, sign and return to the nurse as soon as possible. Please note that if this form is not completed, signed and returned, the medication will be discarded.
