Administrative Information
Lice is Back in Full Force!
 
We are sorry to say that lice seems to be moving through the school. To help us combat this nuisance, please be vigilant in checking through your child/ren's hair. 

If a child is found to have lice, he or she is not required to go home immediately. However, parents will be notified as well as the families of the child's classroom. The child must be treated before returning to school.

For helpful information on how to treat lice, please see this link!

Thank you for your attention to this important health matter.
Reminder from the Front Office

Please remember to email both your child's teacher AND the front office ([email protected]) when you have a sick child, will be late, need to leave early, have any pick-up changes, etc. This helps us keep track of where students are throughout the day. Thank you!
Call for After School Activities Instructors!

If you would like to offer a class for our second session of after school activities, please fill out the attached form  and hand it in to the main office by Friday, December 11. Session two of After School Activities will be starting the week of January 11. If you have any questions about teaching a class, please email Lauren Kalish at [email protected].
