    School Procedures

    The School Day

    AM Cohort starts at 8:00 and ends at 10:40

    PM Cohort starts at 11:55 and ends at 2:40

    Please call the attendance office at ext. 6376, if your child will be absent due to illness.  You can also log on to Genesis to report your child's absence.  Please notify the school in advance if your child will be absent due to a family vacation. I will hold your child's work to be given to your child upon his/her return to school. It will not be available for your child prior to your trip.

    If your child is going home with someone other than usual, please notify me in writing prior to dismissal. Please DO NOT email dismissal information as I check email 3 times a day and may not get the information in time for dismissal. More importantly, if I am absent, this information will not be available to the substitute. Following these guidelines will alleviate any confusion as well as insure your child’s safety.

    Please remind your child that they need to be dismissed by me and not to run to parents/caregivers at the end of the day.

    Classroom Procedures


    Due to the restrictions, we will not be serving any birthday treats this year.  We will sing and your child will receive a bookbark and pencil for their special day.

    A positive parent/teacher relationship is a key to a successful school year. Occasional homework slips will provide you with class happenings, themes and reminders. Additionally you can visit our websites which will be updated monthly.


    Your child’s folder is our communication tool. Please CHECK and EMPTY the folder daily for notices, At Home Learning materials etc. I will also check folders daily for completed At Learningn work or notes from home.

    Please refrain from asking questions at dismissal time. The dismissal process is complex and the safety and well being of each student is my priority. However, if there is a problem of an urgent nature, you may wait until my entire class is dismissed.

    During school hours you may contact me:
    Voice mail: (201) 961-6300 ext. 2101
    e-mail: cstawecki @usrschoolsk8.com

    Please LABEL your child’s clothing, backpacks and any other personal items and  make sure your child has an extra mask and water in their backpack. Book Orders

    Book Orders

    Reading will be an integral part of each school day. Daily reading at home will reinforce skills learned in the classroom, as well as help to foster a love of reading. Once a month your child will bring home a book order form. If you are interested in ordering, send your child’s order and payment to school. These book clubs provide a convenient way for parents to buy quality books at an affordable price. As an added bonus, each dollar spent earns points which can be used to purchase books for our classroom library.
