Below are details for the first week of school
We are off to a great start!!! We thank you all for you cooperation and patience as we begin a school year like no other. While we started off strong, we know that there is always room to improve and therefore below are a few important details for our second day of school:
MINIMIZE MORNING DELAYS/LINES
Health Screenings should be done before bringing your child to school everyday. To do so visit: online questionnaire before arriving to the school. Students also received a white folder which contains hard copies of the DOE Heath Screening questionnaire. Screenings must be done daily BEFORE arriving to the school.
*Student ID Tags*
All students have received ID tags which must be worn every morning to allow our team to identify your child's placement quickly and efficiently.
KEEPING OUR STUDENTS SAFE
School begins at 8AM. No students will be allowed in the building beforehand. Please ensure that your child is not left outside unsupervised before 8AM and that you arrive before 2:15 PM during dismissal so that we do not have children waiting in the auditorium. Please be mindful of this schedule and make every effort to be on time.
PLEASE MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING WHEN DROPPING OFF AND PICKING UP YOUR CHILD(REN).
Please see the Arrival/Dismissal List for more details on arrivals and dismissals.
BREAKFAST WILL BE GIVEN TO THE STUDENTS AS A GRAB & GO OPTION TO TAKE WITH THEM TO THEIR CLASS ROOMS.
*COVID Testing Consent* (Grades 1-5)
Please log on to your child's school account and approve the testing consent as soon as you can. If you forgot your password, please log on using the "forgot password" function. If you never had an account, please email the Parent Coordinator.
*Safety guidelines during arrival/dismissal*
Please be sure to stand behind the yellow lines during arrival and dismissal times. Crowding the entrance is dangerous for our students.
Please do not call your child off of a teachers line during dismissal. Teachers must identify parents before releasing students.
All parents must also fill out the online blue cards that will be distributed by the teachers as soon as possible. Any and all persons, who will be picking up a student from the school, must be listed on the blue card before the person shows up at the school.
Please make sure that you are checking your Dojo account for teacher communications and responding when requested. This is the main method of contact for the teachers.
KEEPING OUR CHILDREN HEALTHY
When sending snacks, especially for our 3k and Prek classes, please try and send healthy snacks/drinks. We encourage all of our parents to help us teach healthy habits starting early.
If your child is a picky eater, consider sending lunch with him/her so that we can ensure that they have a filling lunch.
There will be no school this Thursday, September 16th in observance of Yom Kippur. School will resume on Friday, September 17th.
We appreciate your cooperation with these requests as together we can provide a safe, accommodating, welcoming and healthy environment for our students.
P.S. If you were not able to stop by the school yard for a meet & greet breakfast, with our Parents' Association, please stop by tomorrow after drop off.
