PARENTS: - Check your child’s agenda every day and sign it to make sure their work is done and materials are brought to class - Check Weebly every day for important notices or documents - Do not do your child’s work for them, write their homework for them, or correct their work. It is a learning process. You can sit with them while they go their homework and answer questions they may have. - If your child cannot get their work done, write a note in the agenda. It will be due the following day. - If your child is sick, they should not be at school. They can make up the work/lessons when they come back. Students should also be dressed appropriately for the weather. - With winter coming, students need TWO pairs of shoes. One for indoor (RUNNING SHOES) and one for outdoor (BOOTS). It would be helpful to always have an extra pair of sock and gloves in your child’s backpack at all times so they do not forget them. - We are a NUT FREE school, do not send anything with any kind of nuts to school with your child.
