    Classroom Procedures
     
    Absentees
     

    Call the attendance office at x6376 if your child is going to be absent. Notify the school in advance if your child is going to be absent due to a vacation.

    At Home Extension Activities

    The extension activities will vary and include assignments that will require students to use their chromebooks for online sites/activites to paper-pencil tasks.

    Birthdays
    Invitations can only be handed out if the entire class is invited. During this time, we will not be celebrating birthdays with a snack. Be assured that we will make this day special in the classroom for your child in a different way.

    Book Orders
    Each month, you will have an opportunity to order books from Scholastic. You are under no obligation to purchase. For every book that you order, 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 Books Clubs.

    Classroom Books
    Children are encouraged to borrow books from the classroom. Books must be returned the next day in order to sign out another book.

    Clothing

    Please make sure to label any jackets, sweatshirts, or outerwear your child wears to school.  There will be some outdoor learning and mask breaks, weather permitting. Please send your child to school with warm attire during the winter months.

    Conferences
    Please sign up for your conference at Curriculum Night. Conferences will be held once in the Fall. If you have any other concerns, please contact me so we can schedule a meeting outside of the conference times.

    Folders
    Please check your child's folder everyday. Often there are important papers enclosed; not only the children's work, but also important notices from the teacher. The children have been informed that their folders should be emptied nightly with the exception of returned notices, homework, etc.

    Google Classroom

    Your child will be accessing their At Home Extension activities through our Google Classroom.  They can find the icon in Clever.

    Homework
    The primary purpose of homework is to encourage your child to be responsible and to reinforce concepts taught in class. Homework is due the following morning, unless otherwise noted. The nightly reading book and math flashcards are considered homework.

    Labeling
    Labeling clothing, backpacks, lunchboxes, and personal items is very helpful. Lost and Found is located by the main office.

    Medications
    All Rx's should be given to the Health Office if taken during school hours.

    Notes
    If your child is going home a different way than usual, please send in a note stating so.  

    Signing Out
    Please make sure that you sign your child out at the Greeter's Desk if you are picking them up early for any reason.

    Snack
    We will not be eating snack in school during the hybrid distance learning time.

    Tardiness
    If your child is late, please have your child go to the Greeter's Desk immediately for a late pass. School begins promptly at 8:00 a.m.

    Teacher-Parent Meetings
    If you need to speak to your child's teacher, please schedule a meeting either before or after school or during a special.

    Virtual Classroom

    Your child will click on the links in their virtual classroom to find the schedule and assignments for their At Home Extension Activities.  This Virtual Classroom will be accessible through our Google Classroom.

    Visitation
    All visitors must report to the Greeter's Desk to sign in and receive a Visitor's Badge.
