Policy Change:  With parents not being able to be in the building to supervise the transfer of items from one household to another (clothes, birthday gifts, etc.), it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to get things transferred from one house to another.  In addition, with the onset of the colder weather, the extra bags/packages are not fitting on hooks and coats, extra masks and clothes are ending up on the floor.

Moving forward we would like parents to make arrangements for transfers to happen outside of the school.

Extra Clothes – If you are sending fall/winter extra clothes to replace your child’s summer clothes, please send an email to your child’s teacher so we know to look for the clothes.
