Please write your child’s regular dismissal method inside their red folder on the left hand side.  If your child will be riding the bus, please tape his/her bus pass to the left hand side of his/her folder. If they will be a car rider, please write that in the folder.  If your dismissal method varies from day-to-day, please do your best to specify the schedule in the folder (example: Bus Rider M/W/F, Car Rider T/Th).  Send in a note if there is a change of dismissal at any point during the year. Please call the office as soon as possible if it changes during the day.

Snack will be eaten in the classroom around 9:25 every day, even half days. Please send in a healthy snack and only water. We are a nut free classroom. Please pack your child’s snack in a separate bag so it is not confused with their lunch. Please write your child’s name on his/her brown bags.

Students may bring lunch from home or purchase lunch from the cafeteria. Parents can order lunch via the school’s web site. Please check the school handbook for additional information.  If students bring money from home, please place it in an envelope with your child’s name on it.  We collect it first thing in the morning so we know who has lunch money or not.  If your child has a food allergy, please send us a note on the first day. Please include the type of food allergy and if they need to sit at a peanut free table. Your child’s safety is of top priority to us.
