School Closing

In the event of inclement weather, we make every effort to remain open. If we do find it necessary to close or open late, NBC 10 will display the information on TV beginning at 5:00 a.m. and it will be available on their web site. You will also receive closing information or any emergency situation through our Connect5 program which works by phone and email. You may also use the school’s answering machine. If it is necessary to close early, for any reason, the school will contact each family directly.

Birthdays and Special Occasions

Throughout the year we celebrate a variety of special events: Halloween Parties, Thanksgiving Feasts, Holiday Shows, etc. Parents and friends are welcome to join our celebrations. Please let your child’s teacher know in advance that you would like to bring in a special treat (cupcakes, cookies) for your child’s birthday.

Outside Play

Every classroom is required on a daily basis to participate in outdoor play. Please be sure that your child/children have the appropriate outerwear. this includes gloves, hats, coats, snow suits and boots. This also includes a bottle of sunscreen that should be left in the classroom. Every item must be properly marked with the child’s name.
