Valentine's Day information
More information may be sent home from your child's teacher, as some are requesting cards to be at school earlier based on their classroom schedule.
Guidelines we are required to follow are:
1) Paper needs to be quarantined. If your child is bringing Valentine's cards that are prepared at home, please send them to school the morning of Thursday, February 11th at the latest.
2) If you are providing a snack to the class, it needs to be purchased from a store. An adult will hand out the food with clean hands and using tongs.
Students have been reminded of the health and safety guidelines that were implemented this year.
Hand Sanitizer/hand washing- Students are required to sanitize their hands when they enter the school and the classroom.
Entrances - Students are reminded to use their designated entrance doors. The only exception is when a student is late (or getting picked up early) and then they use the front door. Our doors are locked shortly after the 8:20 bell, and the doorbell is to the right of the door when you arrive at the front.
Please remind your children to cross at crosswalks and to walk across the street after they are certain the vehicle has stopped for them.
We need to work together to ensure our students are safe. Thank you for your cooperation.
