Building a Caring Community!
The teachers and staff heartily welcome everyone back to school! Our theme for the new school year 2014- 2015 is “Building a Caring Community Through the Virtues of Respect, Integrity, and Responsibility”. We can’t be more thrilled to be a part of your family and you in ours.
A few gentle reminders as we gear up for the year ahead:
Arrival/Dismissal: Please sign-in and sign-out your child in the attendance binder. Kindly sign your initials and actual time of drop off and pick-up. Take note that the morning academic program begins at 9:00 AM. Students who arrive before the morning academic program must wait in the hallway with their parents before 9:00 AM.
Uniforms: Students in the Preschool, Pre-K and Kindergarten Program must wear their uniforms. If your child is not wearing their uniform, you must send a written note to your child’s teacher when his or her uniform is ready.
Bathroom Time and Handwashing: Please take your child to the bathroom before school starts and help them wash their hands.
Communication Folders: When you arrive, please take your child’s communication folder out of his or her backpack, and place it in the designated hanging folder or bin for your child’s class. When it is time for your child go home, remember to take the communication folder and return it the following day.
Late and No Make-up Policies: Students picked up late will be assessed a late fee of $1.00 per minute. Morning dismissal is 12:00 noon. Afternoon dismissal is 4:00 PM. Full day care dismissal is 6:00 PM. Students who are absent for any reason will not be allowed to have make-up days.
Mystery Readers and Snack Helpers: Please sign up outside your child’s classroom if you would like to be a mystery reader or wish to bring snacks to your child’s classroom.
Again, welcome back to school! We’re all very excited and look forward to another great year of learning and fun at Meadows Academy!
