When will school begin and end?
If your child is attending school M. W, F or is in Pre-K, then he/she will begin school on the Wednesday after Labor Day.
If your child is attending school T, then he/she will begin school the Thursday after Labor Day.
School will end the week before Memorial Day.
You will be provided with a calendar that will list all days off.
What does my child’s first day of school look like?
On your child’s first day of school you will stay with him/her. It will be a shortened session and you will be attending with half the class. This will provide your child the opportunity to become familiar with the classroom and his/her teacher with the comfort of you nearby. You will also receive important paperwork from your child’s teacher that will need to be completed at that time. Your teacher will assign the time you attend. If your child is in Pre-K or a four year old class, you will attend with your child for only one session and a “normal” classroom session will occur on the next scheduled class day. If your child is in a three-year-old class you will attend with your child during their first two class days and your three-year-old will attend by themselves on the third “normal” class day.
How do I communicate with my teacher or the office?
All teachers will provide an e-mail for communication purposes. Often teachers will send photos and daily news through e-mail. Messages may also be left on the office phone for your teacher. A printed monthly calendar will be sent home with your child that will highlight the units of study, color days, days of the week and other important dates to remember. The calendar and other important information (payment reminders, supplies needs, etc.) will also be on the website. Phone calls are the best way to communicate with the office.
