A Note From Our Principal
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities and our fall festival! Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween costumes and fall attire is one of the highlights of the year for us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of these special occasions! This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with our community. As part of this focus we are busily preparing for our Holiday Giving campaign. This year we are collecting blankets for a local church in our community. We are kicking off new and unwrapped blanets on November 1st and donations will be accepted through November 22nd.
Illness Policy Reminder
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours if they display any of the following:
- Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
- Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
- Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 3-5 minutes
- Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
- Sore throat
- Skin rash, including diaper rash
- Head lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
School-Age Fall Break
Northwest ISD will be closed the week of November 25th – 29th. The School Age students will enjoy several Fall themed activities along with a field trip to the Fort Worth Zoo. Please let us know if your child will be attending so that we may staff accordingly. There is an additional charge for full day attendance, please speak with the front office details.
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a special lunch on November 21st from 11:00-12:00. Students are making their own placemats, hats and table décor for this fun event.
