Welcome to kindergarten!
Here is our list of our specials:

Day 5 -Library Technology

We operate on a six day cycle which repeats.  Snow days or days that are not expected shutdowns will be counted as a lost special and the days continue on as scheduled.  The district calendar has the days of the cycle labeled for the year.

Classroom Policies

If your child is absent or will be dismissed early please send in a note indicating the date, and the reason as this is a requirement by NYS.
 
Children cannot be dismissed to other adults at the end of the day unless they are listed on your child's emergency card and or a written note is sent in with your child.
 
Please send your child in with a snack daily. It need not be anything elaborate simple is better-its just meant to tide us over until lunch and should not be a mini meal.  We only have 10 min.to devote to snack.  Drinks are encouraged as well though please try to ensure that if in a bottle it is with a squirt top only-not twist off.  This helps avoid spills and messes on the tables and our work. :)
