Welcome back to school! I hope everyone had a healthy and fun summer!  

Vision and hearing screenings will be conducted during the fall months. If you do not hear from me, you may assume that your child passed their screenings. If a student fails a screening, I always recheck their vision and/or hearing a few weeks later. If a student fails a screening the second time, I will send a referral letter home requesting further evaluation.

Also during the fall, I will be visiting each classroom to teach proper hand washing and how to “cover your cough”. You will know that I visited your child’s classroom when you see the flyer come home about hand washing and the flu.

**A Reminder To All Preschool Parents: All preschool students are required to have the influenza (flu) vaccine by December 31st. If your child is receiving the influenza vaccine for the first time, 2 doses separated by 28 days are required. Proof of vaccination must be provided to the school nurse by December 31st.

Please have your child wear sneakers or closed-toe rubber soled shoes to school each day. Our students are “on the go” all day and sandals, flip flops and crocs are not appropriate footwear for gym and music classes and recess.
