The First Day Of School RemindersWhether it's your first time or you're a seasoned veteran, preparing your child for the first day of school can make you wish for a time machine to take you back to the beginning of June. If you don't have a Delorean parked in your garage, and the idea that the first day of school is right around the corner is making your eye twitch, don't worry. Here's a little cheat sheet of what to expect:RETURN YOUR FORMS! I know you're excited about clothes, backpacks, and supplies, but the most important thing to send your child to school with is COMPLETED FORMS. You were mailed forms from the office - please send those completed forms to school on the first day! The most important form to fill out and return on by the first day are the TRANSPORTATION FORMS so we know exactly how to send your child home at the end of the day!Wear your Stitch! You should have received a "Stitch" necklace in the mail with your child's name and teacher assignment. Your child should be wearing this on the first couple days of school.
WEAR YOUR MASK! On the first day of school, unless your child has a medical exemption per our school nurse, your child must wear a mask in the classroom at all times. Please pack 1-2 extra masks in your child's backpack in the event the one they are wearing becomes soiled, and please label masks with your child's name on the inside if possible. Please have your child practice wearing their mask as much as possible before school starts. In addition, your child should bring a backpack, a spill-proof refillable water bottle, and a spare change of clothes to be kept in your child's backpack. Please label all of these items with your child's name.
Health Screening: You will be required to complete a health screening at home each morning and return a form to school indicating that your child is healthy and fever-free. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THIS IMPORTANT FORM. If your child is exhibiting signs of ANY illness, please keep them home out of an abundance of caution. Attendance policies will be more flexible this year to encourage our families to be as prudent as possible in keeping their children home if they are not feeling well.
