Reminders from the Administration:
Unexcused absences include truancy and vacations. Homework will not be available in advance of a student’s unexcused absence. If your child will be absent, please notify the school office prior to the absence. Absence due to extenuating circumstances will be judged by the administration. Requests for an excused absence due to extenuating circumstances must be made in writing to the administration one week prior to the scheduled absence when possible.
Picture Re-take Day Tomorrow:
We will call each classroom during the morning to dismiss children that are having their pictures re-taken. Please make sure your child & their teacher know that you wish for them to have a re-take.

If you ordered pictures already, please have your child bring those pictures with them on Oct 15 to give to the photographer. If you have not yet ordered pictures, you child just needs to visit the photographer when we call their classroom.
