Security- When entering the building please do not allow anyone to enter with you unless you know them as
a fellow parent. Please tell them to ring the bell. I thank you for your cooperation.

Sick Policy- A child cannot attend school if they have a fever. Anything over 100 is a fever. Your child must
be fever free for 24 hours before coming back to school. March was an awful month for
illness at the school
and sick children create sick teachers. This turns into a vicious cycle and the illness is prolonged through the
school. Please keep your child home if they are sick.

Pizza Fridays- We will be continuing pizza Fridays. If your child attends on Friday, you can pay $15 per month
and pizza will be supplied. Just add $15 to your tuition

Epi Pens- If your child has an allergy that requires and Epi Pen please be sure you have all the necessary
paperwork completed. See Joanne.

Sunblock- We do have a sunscreen shade on part of the playground, but your child will also need sunscreen.
Please apply sunscreen to your child before they come to school. It is considered a
topical medication, therefore
we need a written permission slip and the sunscreen you want us to put on your child.

and pizza will be supplied. Just add $15 to your tuition.

This is a peanut and nut free school including all tree nuts. Please do not send your child in with any nut
products. There is a sunflower seed spread that tastes like peanut butter that is available. If you are
using a peanut butter substitute, please tell your child's teacher so that we know it is not peanut butter.
Also we do not allow whole carrots or hot dogs for lunch.T he carrots can be shredded or cooked and sent
in. If you have to send in hot dogs they have to be halved length wise and cut into very small pieces.
Grapes and cherry tomatoes must also be cut. Please note filtered water, and 1% milk is offered at snack
and lunch. Snack consists of crackers, fruit, vegetables, cheese, pretzels, goldfish, and selected cookies.
Lunch is supplied by parents. Please have your child's lunch in a lunch box clearly marked with their name.
If their lunch must be kept cold, please place an ice pack in the lunch box. No food can be heated.
Parents have used a thermos for mac and cheese, soup and chicken nuggets. If needed, your child will be
given assistance setting up their lunch. The toddlers will have their lunch set up for them and will be given
assistance with eating. Please note all lunch boxes will go on top of the work bin shelf in your child's classroom.
Due to fire marshal restrictions nothing can be left in the hallway. *** Please note if your child has any food allergies,

Clothing Bins
Please make sure your child has clothes in their clothes bin. Your child's name should be on each piece 
of clothing. Clothes bins are located in your child's classroom. Also please be sure your child’s jacket is
labeled with their name. Please use coat bags.
*** Just a reminder when we do go out on the playground
the children must wear sneakers. You might want to keep an old pair in their bin.
Toddler and Preschoolers Who Nap
Please bring in a crib sheet and small light weight blanket to put on the cot. It must be marked with your 
child's name. The teachers will send it home to be washed weekly.
Children’s Work Bins
Each child has a bin in her/his classroom. Please check this bin on a daily basis. It will contain your child’s 
work for the day and any correspondence from the teacher or the director.
For children who are not potty
trained in Mrs. Fazio’s or Miss Kim and Miss Cathy’s class, please place two or three diapers or training pants
in your child’s work bin with a small container of wipes.
School Days and Hours
Just a reminder that you must adhere to the schedule you enrolled your child for. We must keep a specific 
"child to teacher" ratio so this schedule is very important.
Also there are no make-up days if your child is out ill
and if you bring your child in late you must still pick them up at their normal dismissal time. There will be an
overtime charge for late pick-ups.
Please note tuition is based on the number of days your child attends in a school year. It is then broken down
into ten equal payments.
Please note: We do NOT allow children to bring toys to school. Please adhere to this policy.
Box Tops for Education
Our school participates in this program. You will see the Box Tops on many products you purchase. Please 
have your child help cut them out and bring them to school. Our school receives 10 cents for each box top and
we use the money towards activities we have during the school year. We thank you in advance for your help.
