Holiday breaks are ideal times for the spread of lice. Please check your child at home and let the office know if your child has lice. For more information on lice, please visit https://www.licesquad.com/.
This week will be an adjustment for all! Setting the alarms, preparing lunches and getting back into the routine of homework. Helping your child with the back to school routines will make it a smooth transition for them!
Report cards will be coming out in a month which means assignments will be due throughout the first few weeks of January. Please check your child's school Google Calendar and have due dates visible on a calendar at home to help prepare your child for upcoming work due. Remind your child to check with their teachers when extra help is available for any assistance needed.
We've had a cold week before school and the windchill looks pretty cold again this week. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the outdoor recess and lunch.
If your family is taking an extended vacation and will be away for the first day of school, please notify our safe arrival either by email to email@example.com or by phone at (416) 396-2319.
Happy new year!~ Ms Broderick and Ms Rosenbloom
