A Note from Our Principal,
Happy New Year!
We can’t wait to spend 2021 with you and your children.
We hope that you all had a wonderful Holiday.
Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month. Connecting the Community is a great organization that directly supports children here in our community.
We are truly excited to welcome all of our Xplor Allen Families and look forward to building an even better Xplor community. This transition has been a very rewarding process, and we are grateful for the opportunity to teach and create a loving environment for all our families!
Please take a moment to read the news and reminders below and let myself or anyone else on our team know if you have questions or concerns.
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 305 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 team.
