Tardy Policy: Why It Matters!
After the tardy bell, CMS policy requires all students be escorted into the building and signed in by a parent or guardian. All students arriving after 7:45 am are required to have a tardy slip to enter the classroom and these can only be obtained after they are signed in.

Recently, Selwyn conducted a routine safety drill to practice emergency school lock down procedures during morning arrival. It brought to light just how important the escort policy really is. Children dropped off after the tardy bell and during lock down would be left outside the building with no supervision! It is imperative that parents see them safely inside the building after the carpool drop off ends and the 7:45 am tardy bell rings.
Health & Wellness Tip

Is your child a picky eater? You are not alone! It's easy to become frustrated when your child refuses to eat food so lovingly prepared for them. Don't be discouraged!

Experts advise NOT TO LABEL your child a PICKY EATER. Doing so may result in them labeling themselves PICKY and form a BELIEF that it is who they are. Avoid talking about their picky eating when they are within hearing distance. Encourage them to try new things, but don’t make a big deal about it if they don’t like it or if they refuse. It can take time for their palates to develop. Most importantly, model good eating habits for your children, and continue to serve a variety of healthy foods.
