Weekly Update 8.7.23

Good morning,
I hope you are all excited for the first day on Thursday! We are excited to see you all at Open House or Meet and Greets!
Here are this week’s updates and reminders:

1. Medication:  If your student needs to take prescription medication during school hours, please review, complete, and sign this form that lets us know all the specific information.  We will also need the medication in a labeled prescription bottle in order to dispense.

Medication Form
2. School Hours Reminder: K-8 begins promptly at 8:00 am. Drop-off begins at 7:30 am. Please have your student remain in the car until you see the admin team in place. The school day ends at 3:00 pm. If your student is not picked up by 3:30 pm, they will go to afterschool and you will be charged a daily rate for that day. We do not have a before-school program. There are no exceptions
****Remember that we have one line in the morning and two lines in the afternoon. We have lots of returning families so follow their lead. Please be patient for the first few weeks of school. The lines get better as families learn the procedures.****
3. Remind App: We have an ERA Parent Blast to share important updates including weather closures and schedule changes. The app is free and the directions are attached.
