September 2021
Dear Parents,

I hope you are enjoying the last bit of Summer! We'll be welcoming all children back to school on Tuesday, September 7th. We are very excited for a new year at TLC and continue to use extra precautions to keep TLC safe for the children!

As a reminder, we will hold our parent orientation meeting for new and returning students tonight at 6:15pm! We will go over school policies, navigating the website, communication, and teacher/student placement. Please limit attendance to one parent/guardian.

Our themes and curriculum this month will revolve around getting to know our students, their families, and their friends.

In mid-September, we will focus on apples. You may see apple prints and apple patterns. We will dissect apples, count seeds, make graphs, compare types of apples, and have an apple tasting party!

If you haven't already signed up for text alerts, please text @tlcmerrick to 81010.

Medications can be administered with proper doctor's permission and medication that matches. For example: we cannot administer Tylenol if your doctor specified Motrin. It is VERY specific.

All medication must be provided in its original packaging including the cup/syringe. This will ensure proper dispensing of the dose.

If you want medication to be given to your child to manage pain, or if your child has allergies and they require medication, please speak to an MAT trained teacher to check in your forms/medicines.

The latest menus can be found on our website.

Please bring in an alternative if your child does not eat what is on the menu. For children under 18 months, please continue to bring in yogurt, fruits/vegetables, and infant snacks. Some of the snacks are not appropriate for their age group and we don’t always have alternatives.
