Happy New Year and Important Reminders
Happy New Year! We hope everyone enjoyed the holiday vacation and is rested and refreshed for the 2018 Spring Semester! The children are busy back in their classrooms and are happy to be with their friends and settling into the routine.
As we start the new year, we would like to bring your attention to a few important reminders:
- The importance of being on time! We know getting back into the school routine presents its own sets of challenges, especially in the morning, but it is very important that your children arrive on time to school. Children who enter the classroom late miss the ritual of the work day which makes them feel uncomfortable and without a sense of order for how to begin their day. Additionally, it is important for children, as they grow and develop in all areas of life, to develop the habit of punctuality. If you are struggling with your morning routine to get to school on time, please feel free to reach out to your teachers for advice on how to structure the morning. As a reminder, below are the drop-off times for each grade level. Please note that while there is a grace period for the morning drop-off, it is important that you remain in your window of opportunity as these are implemented to create a flow of traffic and to respect the AMI guidelines of a 3-hour, uninterrupted work period.
Pick-Up For the Children’s House: Please be mindful during afternoon pick-up to pull your car forward to allow space for passing cars. Additionally, if you are not the first 3 cars in line, we ask that you please remain in your car before coming to sign your child out.
- Sickness: As the cold weather persists, we ask that you please be extra sensitive with your children and any symptoms they may be experiencing. In an effort to keep everyone healthy, and in compliance with California State Licensing, if your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms, we ask that they stay home and remain symptom free for at least 24 hours before returning to school:
Fever, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, drainage from nose, severe cough, unusual color to skin or eyes, stiff neck and headache, difficulty breathing or wheezing, complaints of any pain, seeming to be abnormally tired and in need of rest.
Thank you and we look forward to another wonderful semester together!
