September 23 – Weekly Update

Dear families,

Thank you to our families for another great week. Our students demonstrated respect and safety during our first fire drill of the year. We appreciate the efforts made to have children at school on time in the mornings. As a reminder to parents, we will not be having warning bells in the morning and we expect students to be in their lines when the bell rings.

Several of our students have allergies and some are life threatening. We are asking that you refrain from sending in nuts, nut products, and latex to school with your children.

To ensure all of our students are safe, we are encouraging parents not to send in birthday treats as there are several students with food allergies.

Sincerely,

Andrea Michelutti – Principal
