Tustumena Elementary Newsletter
September 10, 2019
Dear Tustumena Families,
Tustumena School shirts are now available for order. Order forms have been sent home and are also available at the school office. If you would like to place an order, orders are due to the school office by October 1st, with exact cash or check made payable to Tustumena Elementary. Unfortunately, we are unable to process credit card payments. The options available are slightly different than last year.
As a reminder, the main entrance of the school remains locked until 8:30am because we do not have staff here to monitor students before then. Please do not drop off your children before 8:30am.
Have you thought about joining the PTO or Parent Teacher Organization? They are a group of teachers and parents who work together to make the school year better. They organize events and fundraisers, as well as sponsor field trips and school activities. The first meeting is Tuesday, September 17th at 4pm in the teacher's lounge, feel free to stop by!
A Note From Nurse Claudette
Now is a great time to program the school nurse’s phone number into your phones so that if your child is ill or hurt and I contact you, you know that it is the school nurse calling. That number is 907-260-1372. Please also program the main school number, 907-260-1345, as the office will be making those calls when we do not have a school nurse. Should your child become ill during the school day, you will be called to come and pick him or her up in a timely manner, generally within 30 mins.
