Can I bring treats to the school for my child's birthday?

We honor that a birthday is a special day for your child.  If you wish to recognize your child's birthday at school, please consider non edible treats such as pencils, erasers, stickers, etc...  If your child's heart is set on something his/her classmates can eat, we ask that only low-fat or sugar-free food products are brought in.  Always make arrangements with the classroom teacher first, especially to check for any students with food allergies. Click here  for the school's Healthy Resolution.


Can a message be delivered to my child at school?

Calls to the classrooms interrupt student learning. Personal messages, after school arrangements, reminders for after school activities, etc. must be taken care of BEFORE your child leaves home in the morning. If there is an urgent message that must get to your child while he/she is at school, please call the office directly and a staff member will contact your child or teacher to relay the message.
