A Great Gift Idea: School Supplies

A Great Gift Idea: School Supplies
Stock your student’s stocking with a new batch of school supplies for the spring semester. Many students are running low on pencils, erasers, wet-wipes, etc. so fill those stockings with a gift that will last all year.

• Students will return to school on Tuesday, January 7th at 8 a.m.

Winter Attire
As a reminder for the colder weather, please make sure that your
students have appropriate clothing for shortened recesses. We will
try and go outside as much as possible, based on the wind chill and
actual temperature each day. Please make sure that your children
have a heavy coat, hats and gloves and that their names are on
Please let us know if you are in need of winter clothing items and we
will do our best to find something for your child.
We want everyone to be safe and warm and still have the
opportunity for fresh air and movement, when possible.

Be sure to call in your child’s absence by 8:30 a.m. If a parent doesn’t call, the absence is unexcused.

Phone Numbers
If you change your phone number please notify the office. It is very important that we are able to reach parents in case of an emergency.

Emergency Contacts
Are your Emergency Contacts current in Family Skyward?
We can only release your child to individuals listed. They must be older than age 18.
