Hello St. Al Families,
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week #3 of our school year together. Below you will find some policy and procedure items as well as event news for the rest of this week.
Pre-K & Elementary Curriculum Night: This event is tonight from 7-8:30pm. The book fair will be open starting at 6:30pm.
Bingo: Our first Bingo night is this Friday in the lunch room, 7-8pm with kitchen opening at 6:30pm.
Policies and Procedures
Playground After School: Playground time is a favorite for some of our students. For the safety of all our children we need to have non-Extended Care students supervised directly by parents when on the playground after school. This means that parents need to be on the playground with their students to directly supervise their playground activity. Our Extended Care staff need to be the support for our Extended Care students. Tracking who is and is not in Extended Care can be difficult for our staff when children without adult supervision join them on the playground. Also, families who are not paying for Extended Care supervision are receiving services for free that others have paid for if their students are unsupervised with our Extended Care group.
Please note that when K-8 Extended Care students are on the playground they use both play areas, so smaller children will come in contact with older elementary children on the smaller playground. My hope is that we can all use the playground area after school.
Extended Care: Once you sign students out from Extended Care we are releasing them to you. I know that there may be times when you need them to stay longer or you may need to take care of something in the office. If this is the case, we ask that you sign your student back in or simply wait to sign them out. This let’s our Extended Care staff know exactly who is still under their supervision and who should be going home with their trusted adult.
Thank you to all of our school volunteers, parents, students, and staff. It has been a wonderful start to the school year and I can’t wait to see what the rest of September has in store.
