Winter is already wrapping up and February is here again. As always, we have lots of fun activities and events planned for the children with Valentine’s day on the 12th, Mardi Gras on the 16th, and Chinese New Year on the 19th. Not only is it fun to make cards for our friends, but we get to use the whole month to impress upon the children the power of love and friendship. Class party sign-ups will be posted soon so keep an eye out for more details.
Please remember to sign your child in and out every day. We know that mornings can be rushed(even more so now due to covid-19restrictions), but it is a licensing requirement that your child is signed in/out of school by a responsible guardian every day. In addition, if you have not already turned in your acknowledgment of receipt for the new parent handbook please remember to do so as soon as possible.
As usual, this time of year brings weather that is warm one minute, and cold the next. Please make sure your child has a jacket or sweater at school. All clothing items, lunch boxes, and water bottles should be labeled with your child’s name to ensure no one’s favorite jacket or belongings go home with someone else. We now face the additional challenge of trying to pack up children without the help of parents to make sure nothing is forgotten or misplaced.
As is now the norm please remember that if your child is showing signs of illness to keep them home until they are feeling better. Children exhibiting rash, fever, diarrhea, or who are showing any other symptoms of covid-19MUST STAY HOME until symptom-free for 24 hours without the aid of medication. We ask that you please call us and let us know if your child is homesick so we can advise other parents to be vigilant for signs of illness. If your child is exposed to someone who has covid-19 in the home the new guidelines for quarantine have increased quarantine time. Please reach out to me if you have any questions. Thank you for your understanding and continued support and cooperation!
