FLU VACCINATION CLINIC COMING We will hold our annual Flu Vaccination Clinic on Friday, October 28th. Forms and more information are being sent home in this week’s Friday Folder. Please note that this year we will only be offering the Flu Shot. NO Flu Mist is available or be offered. These forms will need to be completed and returned by Wednesday, October 19th. If you have any questions, you are encouraged to contact Phil Paquette, our school nurse.
IS THIS YOURS??? Our “Lost and Found” has collected SEVERAL jackets, sweatshirts and lunch bag items. In an effort to make sure your child keeps any items that belong to him/her, we are encouraging you to write a name on a tag or other area so that if it is lost it can be returned.
FIRE PREVENTION WEEK OCTOBER 9TH – 15TH Next week is national Fire Prevention Week. Several of our students will be learning about fire prevention strategies and how to be safe at home and school. This year we will be telling families, “Don’t wait! Check the Date. Replace your Smoke Alarms Every 10 years”. Smoke alarms save lives. The focus on smoke alarm replacement comes as the result of a recent survey conducted by NFPA, which showed that only a small percentage of people know how old their smoke alarms are or how often they need to be replaced.
DRESSING FOR THE WEATHER We would like to remind parents that students should come dressed to spend recess time outside each day. This means sending your child in warm clothing if the temperatures are predicted to be cold. Now is a good time to make sure that you have warm clothing that fits for the coming winter season.
DO WE HAVE YOUR NUMBER? Please contact the elementary office if you have a change of contact information so we may update our records. This includes changes of address, phone number, email addresses, cell phone numbers, and emergency contact information. This information is used for School Reach in the event of an early dismissal/school closing, school related emergency or for an illness to reach parents.
