What to pack in backpack on the first day of school:
~ recess-ready shoes if student is not wearing sneakers already
~ a snack for mid-morning
~ a lunch or a note requesting lunch
Your student won’t need much the first day of school.
Each class has a snack mid-morning, so pack a snack for your kiddo.
Lunch will be served or you can send your child with a lunch.
Lunch costs $3.35 and can be paid by the day, week or month. More info on lunch and the free and reduced lunch program, as well as the milk/juice program, will come home with your child on the first day. Milk and juice and lunch are available on Day 1 with or without payment.
Weather permitting, we will have two recesses and your child should wear clothing and shoes appropriate for running around in a field, climbing on playground equipment or playing on the blacktop. Sneakers are preferred. Flip flops and clogs are not safe footwear for the playground.
Each classroom will have a list of school supplies your student needs. You may have gotten this in the mail from your child’s teacher already. Most classrooms have mailboxes and/or folders for the exchange of messages from home and school, and to carry home homework and the weekly school newsletter.
You will receive a link to a stack of paperwork. Please contact the school if you have trouble accessing this link. Please complete the on-line forms and uploads as soon as possible.
