• ​Mrs. Maginnis's Classroom Policies & Procedures:

    ​​Below you will find explanations of many of our classroom and school procedures. If you have any questions, or need clarification, please feel free to contact me.

    Reynolds School opens at 7:30 am and students will be supervised until our classroom door opens at 7:55 am.


    ​​If your child is late to school, please send him/her directly to the Greeter's Desk for a late pass.


    All absences should be marked in Genesis. Please notify the school in advance if your child will be absent from school due to vacation. I will hold your child's work until he/she returns on their first day back. 

    ​Please check your child's folder every day and remove any notes, completed assignments, or homework sent home. The folders will also be useful with sending correspondence back and forth as the children and I check them every day.


    Homework is important because it reinforces concepts taught in class and also encourages your child to be more responsible. All homework sent home is due back the following day, unless indicated otherwise.


    ​​Building a relationship with you to help foster the growth and learning of your child is very important not only to me, but to your child's success. If you need to contact me, you can write me a note, reach me via e-mail at smaginnis@usrschoolsk8.com, or phone me at (201) 961-6300 ext. 2121


    ​​​All First Graders, unless following an alternate dismissal plan, will be dismissed out the First Grade wing doors by the Tennis Courts. If your child is going home a different way than usual, please send a note stating how or to whom your child should be dismissed. If dismissal plans change during the day, do not e-mail me, but rather contact the main office (201) 961-6300.


    Snack and Lunch: 

    Please send your child in with a nutritious snack, as it is vital for growth, development, and energy. First Graders eat lunch at 12:20 pm. If you purchased milk for your child it will be served during lunch. If not, please be sure to pack a drink for both snack and lunch.


    ​​Please label all clothing, backpacks, lunch boxes, and personal items.


    ​All medications should be given to the school nurse if taken during school hours.



    Birthdays are always a fun and exciting time to celebrate! Birthday friends are invited to bring in a special birthday snack to share with the class. I will send home a birthday note prior to your child's birthday which will confirm your child's celebration date. Included on the note will be a detachable slip for you to send back indicating the snack you plan to send in with your child. We look forward to celebrating their special day! Summer birthdays will be celebrated in June. Invitation to birthday parties should NOT be distributed in school.
