Weekly Announcements

Dear Van Gogh Parents, Staff, and Students,

          Our first day of school is on Tuesday, August 14th.  Returning students will line up on the playground at their classroom number from last year.  Their teacher from last year will disperse them to their new classrooms.  The first bell will ring at 7:56 a.m.  New students in 1st-5th grade will meet in the Van Gogh library for their room assignment.  New transitional kindergartners and kindergartners will meet in the auditorium at 8:30 a.m.   We encourage all families to start the new year off by making a commitment to have your child here on time each day and not to miss more than 7 days in the entire school year!  During the first week of school parents can come on campus to accompany their children to line up and to meet them at dismissal.  During the first week all TK/Kindergartner parents will need to pick up their children at their classroom at dismissal and sign them out.  Our first morning assembly will take place on Monday, August 20th.  We will also begin implementing our CLOSED CAMPUS policy on Monday after the assembly.  At dismissal all parents will wait off campus at their designated dismissal gate to pick up their students.  Only signed in visitors or volunteers will be allowed on campus.  All new and returning volunteers will also need to be fingerprinted prior to their first day of service.  We will continue to have monthly Monday morning assemblies where we welcome parents to join us.  These procedures are being put in place to insure the safety of our most treasured asset.....our students, your children!  I appreciate your understanding and support as we work towards accomplishing a closed safe campus and ensure that we maintain our warm and welcoming culture.

 

Respectfully,

Ms. Merloni

LOST AND FOUND

Please label your student's jackets, backpacks, and lunch boxes with their name.  This will help ensure that lost items may be found.  Our collection of unclaimed items grows rapidly and is donated to charity at the end of each month.

 

Peanut Policy

Please support us......Due to students with severe peanut allergies, we request that snacks and lunches stay PEANUT FREE! 

We would appreciate your support in avoiding sending foods that contain peanuts or any other form of tree nuts, such as sandwich crackers filled with peanut butter, granola bars, and trail mix.

Some healthy & nutritional alternatives include: ham, roast beef, tuna, egg salad, cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs, fruit salad, yogurt & fruit, fruit rollups, apples with caramel, hummus, celery & carrot sticks, animal crackers, popcorn, pudding or Jell-o, and Rice Krispie Treats. Thank you for your cooperation!
