A Note From Our Principal
Happy New Year! We can’t wait to spend 2019 with you and your children. Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month. We partnered with Childhaven and brought so much joy to many children this Holiday season through your generosity – it is truly appreciated! We also enjoyed having some of our students with us for Winter Break Camp.
Winter is upon us in the Seattle area. I would like to remind all of you to dress your child appropriately for colder temperatures. Heavy jackets, hats and mittens are recommended as we head into this new Winter season.
January is a great time to review grace and courtesy and kindness towards others. This will be discussed in all of our classrooms as we talk about the impact that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had on our society.
Our Winter Specialty classes have begun. Our classes include Yoga, Science, Acro, Amazing Athletes, Soccer, LEGO Adventures, and World Cooking. If you missed the opportunity to join in the fun, you will have another chance to sign up for our Spring session.
Please take a moment to read through the news and reminders below and let myself or anyone else on our administrative team know if you have questions or concerns.
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours if they display any of the following:
- Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
- Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
- Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 30 minutes
- Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
- Sore throat
- Skin rash, including diaper rash
- Head lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
