Reminder! Carpool Procedures
In morning carpool, drivers should pull up as far as possible before letting children out of the car. Follow signals from staff members and NO PASSING OR PHONE USAGE IS ALLOWED IN THE CARPOOL LINE. Selwyn staff members and Safety Patrol are there to greet children and see them safely to their classrooms.

NOTE: The Runnymede bus entrance (also serves as AG’s carpool exit) is one way and may not be used to drop off/pick up Selwyn students.
New Tardy/Absence Incentive for Students
In an effort to cut down on student tardies and absences , we would like to start a new incentive for students. If a student has no tardies or absences in a month , there will be some type of Selwyn spirit day on the last day of each month . All this will require from you, is that on the day before the last school day of the month, you let your students know if they are permitted to participate in the spirit day. You will find this information on PowerSchool.

The first Selwyn Spirit day will be on January 31 and will be Crazy Hat Day . We will be sharing this information on WSEL next week and it will also be in the Eagle Email for the whole month of January. Dr. Harris will also send a Connect Ed the night prior to our first Spirit Day. We will need your help in making sure you accurately document tardies and enforce who can and cannot participate in the spirit day.
Healthy Tip for Flu Season
Keeping your child's immune system strong is an important way to stay healthy and ward off illness during the school year. Getting enough sleep, maintaining a healthy diet, managing stress, exercising, making time to laugh, and emphasizing hand washing can help reduce your child's risk of getting colds, flu, and other infections. Healthy habits such as remembering not to keep touching his/her eyes, or refraining from sharing cups and utensils with friends are important to emphasize.
