A Note From Our Principal,
Summer has come to an end and another school year is upon us. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new families, and a sincere thank you to returning families and those that chose to spend their summer with us. We enjoyed making memories with your children and are looking forward to spending the fall season together. Please review the reminders below carefully so we can make the most of our time together over the next few months. As always, our administrative team is here to answer any questions you may have.
Health and Safety Measures
The health and safety of our children and families is always our highest priority. To mitigate the risks of COVID-19 while children are in our care, we have adopted additional health and safety measures based on CDC guidelines, state and local regulations, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Visit our school website to learn more information.
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school
l. 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
Skin rash, including diaper rash
Symptoms of a communicable disease
Fussy, cranky behavior unlike the 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 App Usage
We know that summer is a busy time for our families, and want to communicate school happenings as clearly as possible to ensure that no one is left out. As a reminder, daily reports are sent via email each day, but our Links 2 Home app keeps all school communications in one place and is always accessible. The app also allows to you communicate absences to your child’s teacher, leave drop-off notes, and read teacher and administrative notes in detail.
If you’re not a current app user, we encourage you to visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to download the app today. You will need to login with the email address you use for Alma. Please let us know if you have issues logging into Links 2 Home!
Our school does not follow the local elementary school schedule as we are open more days per year. For the 2020-2021 school year the days we are closed are: (add your specific days)
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Eve
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
Fall Cubby Refresh
It’s finally starting to get cooler and we are planning extra outdoor time to take full advantage of the fall season. Please make sure your child has a weather appropriate change of clothes in their cubby and outerwear when applicable.
We Love Our Parents!
Do you know any parents who have recently moved to the area, are expecting a baby or are unhappy with their current preschool? We value our current parents and would love more families like yours at our school! Refer a new family to our school and your family could receive a free week of tuition. For more information, see Melissa.

Are you planning on re-enrolling for the next school year? We hope so! Please let us know as soon as possible so that we can ensure your child is placed on the roster. Our management team is available to address any questions or concerns you have.
