It was wonderful to meet everyone at Orientation! I am so excited for this year!!
First day drop off notes:
- All students will have their temperatures taken before entering the building.
-All students will need to wear their masks while on campus.(refer to the Leon county flyer on masks that was in your Orientation folder.)
- Students may enter their classrooms on the first day ONLY after arriving from 7:45-8:20. All other days, Kindergarteners and First Grade students will go to the K/1 playground.(rainy/too cold...they will go to Music room)
- As mentioned, we will alternate with First grade to go to classrooms early. This week, starting on Tuesday, Kindergarteners will come in early to classroom at 8:05... for the first week, I will pick them up at the playground by my name sign.
They can hang their backpacks up on the fence by my name sign.
-Remind them to wear their masks on the playground and to still socially distance as much as possible.( ex. no touch/tag games,etc.)
-Dropping off after 8:30.... they will need to go to office first for a tardy slip.
-Remember to send a labeled small water bottle and a small snack each day.
First day reminders:
Please have your child go to bed early the first weeks of school. They will be tired :) Remember to send in a FULL change of emergency clothes( socks,underwear, shirt, shorts/pants) each labeled with your child's name in a plastic bag also labeled with their name. This will be kept in their cubbies all year. As the weather changes, please send in appropriate clothing.
Our lunch time is from 10:47-11:12. They can buy lunch or bring their own. Their lunches and snacks will be kept inside their backpacks. Any lunchboxes will need to be labeled with their names. Candy and soda are not allowed in lunch boxes or for snack.Please also let me know if your child has any peanut products with them that day because they will need to sit away from our allergy tables. They will still be with us but just at a different spot at our table.
I will be with them in the lunchroom for the first few days. They are expected to stay seated, use soft voices and talking only to their neighbors. If they need something, they will need to raise their hand and wait for a lunchroom helper.
We also have a daily snack in the afternoon. Please do not send any yogurt, Go-gurts or fruit cups. These cannot be refridgerated here at school and they spill easliy causing messes and bugs. You may send 1 small healthy snack and 1 small drink(please no red punch because it stains) labeled in a bag or small reusable lunch bag. Please remind your child, that, although we love that they care enough to share with others, they are not allowed to share food at lunch nor at snack time.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get back to you within 48 hours.
If you have any transportation changes, you must call the office before 2:00 if possible so they can officially let me know. I am not allowed to make the change unless the office has been called. Your child may not tell me .
Please also check my website for our Special Area calendar. It will tell you where your child is going each day for the month. We are on a 4 day rotation but it doesn't necessarily stay same / day of the week. So please check to make sure where they will go each day. This is important especially on PE days because they are expected to wear tennis shoes that day and they can also bring a labeled water bottle. They will need to wear tennis shoes that whole day as we do not have time in our schedule to change everyone's shoes. It would actually be better for them to wear tennis shoes every day (playground, etc) but are required on PE days. They will be marked off after the first week of school in that class for not being able to participate for safety reasons.
I look forward to the many adventures we will have this year!!
