A Note from Our Principal
Happy New Year! We can’t wait to spend 2020 with you and your children. We would like to thank you for all of the kind cards and gifts for our teachers and staff. We are so appreciative of the thoughtfulness shown and really loved getting to spend the holiday season with each of our students. Lastly we thoroughly enjoyed having our school-age students with us for winter break camp. Thank you to all who were able to join us! Please take a moment to read through the news and reminders below and let myself or anyone else on our administrative team know if you have questions or concerns.
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.
Links 2 Home
If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school.
Online Parent Communication
In addition to our newsletter, the ‘For Parents’ section of our website also includes links to our menu, monthly calendar and school year calendar. We update these items frequently to ensure you’re always in the know. Though we send information through Links 2 Home, our calendar can be printed or even downloaded directly to your device. Our menu and school year calendar can be printed or saved for easy reference as well.
Do you have a different email address or phone number? Need to add or remove an emergency contact? You can do this at any time in Alma. If you need help logging in or accessing the system please let us know.
