Lunch and Snack
Snack time in our room is from 9:30-9:45am. Please send a HEALTHY snack to school with your child every day. Lunch is at 12:20 in the Reynolds Gym and weather-permitting, the children then go outside for recess until 1:00. Milk is served during lunch only. Please pack a drink for snack in the classroom.
Children are marked late if they arrive after 8:05 A.M. If your child arrives after 8:15, please report to the attendance office for a late pass.
Please call the school if your child will be absent due to illness. Notify the attendance office in advance if your child is going to be absent due to a vacation. Make-up work is only given ahead of time for an illness, not for vacation.
Labeling clothing, backpacks, lunchboxes, and other personal items is very helpful. Lost and Found is located by the main entrance to Reynolds.
All medications should be given to the nurse if taken during school hours.
If you would like to send in a healthy treat to celebrate your child's birthday, please send me a note at least one day in advance. Drop the treats in the main office the morning of your child's birthday. If your child has a summer birthday, you may select any day of the school year to celebrate. Again, just send me a note so I can plan for it.
Folders and Homework
Your child's folder has a "Return to School" and a "Keep At Home" section. Homework and other notices that need to be returned to school will be in "Return to School". Notices and completed work will be in "Keep at Home". Please hold your child responsible for going through his or her folder each afternoon and packing homework for the following day. This builds independence and good organizational skills.
If your child will be dismissed to someone other than you, you must send in a note or call the main office. Students will not be dismissed to anyone else without prior permission.
** If you wish for your child to be dismissed to a different location other than with the class, please send in a note stating the following; "I understand that my child will be unsupervised as they leave the classroom."
Please send in all dismissal changes in writing!
All visitors must report to the main office to sign in and receive a visitor badge. If you have a lunch, class work, library book, or any other item, please leave it in the office for your child to pick up at a convenient time. This procedure avoids classroom interruptions.
Please make sure that you sign your child out in the main office if you are picking them up early for any reason.
Scholastic Book Order
Each month, you will have the opportunity to order books from Scholastic. You are under no obligation to purchase. For every book you order for your child, I receive bonus points that can be redeemed for free books for our classroom. If you order, please do not send cash. Checks can be made payable to "Scholastic Book Clubs".
