FROM THE OFFICE...
CAR LOOP REMINDER
Please make sure the Oak Street driveway entrance is not blocked during car loop. Aftercare employees need to enter the lot at dismissal time and be able to park in the area between the auditorium and cafe.
POLICY ON TOYS/TRADING CARDS IN SCHOOL
Teachers design many important and engaging learning activities for their students. In the interest of maintaining a harmonious, productive and positive learning environment, children are not to bring toys or trading cards (example: Pokemon) to school from home. The only exception is if the teacher has specifically asked the children to do so because it relates to an instructional activity. Handheld video games, iPods, cell phones, and other electronic devices are prohibited in school, on the playground and on the bus.
Starting in December, the "Lunch Menu" link on our website is being amended to redirect users to the website of our food services provider (Aramark) where menus, nutrition information, price lists and related information will be posted.

FRIDAY FOLDER DISTRIBUTION
The Friday Folder distribution method has changed. Your Friday Folder email will have either Mrs. Slack or Ms. Guibord as the sender and the subject will say FRIDAY FOLDER with the date. If you are not receiving Friday Folders, please reach out to the Main Office.
SCHOOL STORE DATES
Once a month, children are given the opportunity to purchase small items during their lunch period. School Store is completely optional! However, the children love choosing and purchasing these small treasures on their own. Items range in price from $0.25 to $2.00. Please do not send your child in with more than $4.00. Children in kindergarten will be able to participate starting in January 2019.
