Notes from Nurse DiMaio
If you have any questions please call me at #610-690-3115.
Winter has been mild but the schools continue to have many episodes of flu and strep throat and viruses with fever.
Please remember to keep your child home if they have a fever or diarrhea or vomiting.
If your child is diagnosed with strep throat, they should be home for 1-2 days after starting their antibiotic.
If your child has been diagnosed with the flu, they need to be home until they are symptom free. This includes fever and fatigue.
Please reinforce hand-washing and covering a cough to avoid the spread of illness.
Please remember to keep an extra set of clothes and underwear in your child’s backpack. The nurse does not always have the proper size for each student if they need to be changed due to toileting accidents or spills in the lunch room.
I will happily accept donations of outgrown boys’ or girls’ pants sizes 6-12 since we do use many here at the SLC.

IT'S CLUB TIME!
The SLC is very pleased to offer 2020 club choices for our Kindergarten and First Grade students! These clubs will give students the chance to socialize and gain new skills in a fun and active environment.
Mrs. Coover's Corner
While driving in the parking lots at the SLC and ETR, PLEASE remember not to be on your cell phones. The children's safety is our #1 concern and we do not want any distractions while you are either dropping off or picking up your child from school. Thank you for your understanding.
Parents of bus riders:
Please make sure that you are at the bus stop after school to meet your children. If you are not there, they will bring the kids back to the SLC and we will call you to come to school to pick them up.
Please give about 15 mins BEFORE and AFTER the times that you were given by Transportation to be at the stop.
The bus WILL NOT let your child off the bus without an ADULT being there to get them. If the bus drivers does not recognize a person, they will not allow the child to get off the bus. If someone different is going to get them at the stop, please email their teacher with who it will be and transportation will be notified of the change.
If you have any other concerns, please call Transportation directly at (484) 472-6749 or 6750.
Parking at the SLC
We have visitor and 15 min parking spots in our lot. These spots ARE NOT to be used for drop off and/or walker line pickup. Please continue to use the car line for drop off. It is a very crazy time in the parking lot during arrival and dismissal and we do not want ANYTHING to happen to the children. Children must be supervised at all times while they are in the parking lot. The spots are to be used if you need to run something into school, guest reading, cafeteria help, meetings, etc. There are also 4 traveling teachers spots that are ONLY for our teachers that come to the SLC to teach, so please do not use these spots. Please DO NOT park at the Dairy Cottage, that is their property and will call the SPD.
Thank you very much!
Kindergarten Carline Drop Off
Remember when dropping off in the AM/PM, DO NOT park on the side by the porch. That is for approved buses and vehicles that are dropping off students for various situations. Kindergarten should NOT be dropping off before 8:40 for AM and 12:30 for PM.
Kindergarten Car line Pick up (PM)
Please remember to arrive for car line pickup as close to 3:30 as possible. If you arrive BEFORE then, you may get caught in first grade car line and this will cause a delay in dismissing the first graders. Thank you for your corporation and making the SLC car line run smoothly.
Please do not park by ETR before 3:00.

Birthday and Class Parties
Dear SLC Parents and Guardians,
In our student body we have many children with significant food allergies. Our school always strives to keep all of our students safe and healthy, therefore, we have developed a plan for birthday snacks in the classroom. The snacks listed below are the ONLY snacks permitted for birthday celebrations. These commonly available snacks are free of peanuts and tree nuts. We do recognize that children may have other food allergies, and ask that parents/guardians send in alternative snacks to address those needs.
· Pretzel Boy or Bernie’s Soft Pretzels
· UTZ Cheese Balls (plain)
· Pirate’s Booty (aged white cheddar, sour cream & onion, New York Pizza, veggie)
· Herr’s popcorn (original or cheese flavored)
· UTZ pretzels (butter waffle, nuggets, pop’z, rods, wheels)
· Goldfish Mix-Up Adventures (pretzel, flavor blasted xtra cheddar, xtra cheesy pizza)
· Goldfish 100 calorie pouches (cheddar, pretzel)
· Teddy Grahams (cinnamon, honey, chocolate, chocolatey chip, mini)
· Oreos (original, double stuff)
· Luigi’s real Italian ice – (cherry, lemon, lemon/strawberry, mango, watermelon/blue raspberry- please provide plastic spoons for water ice)
· Enjoy life snacks
· If you prefer to send in a non-food treat, pencils, erasers, stickers, and the like are always appreciated.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you in advance for your support in keeping the health, safety, and welfare of our students our number one priority.
