A Note From Our Principal,
The year is off to a great start so far and we’re enjoying spending the winter season with you and your children. Now that we’ve all had a chance to settle back in I want to take this opportunity to remind all of you about Links 2 Home and the other communication tools we use to keep in touch.
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.
2019-2020 Re-Enrollment and Summer Packets
Are you planning on re-enrolling for the next school year? We hope so! All currently enrolled students have been given re-enrollment packets distributed in children’s cubby. These packets will need to be completed and submitted to hold placement for your child in the upcoming school year. If you did not receive yours or have questions, please see the office.
2019-2020 Re-Enrollment packets are due back FEBRUARY 14, 2019
Summer 2019 camp registration packets are out! It’s never too early to start planning for summer. Our 2019 summer camp brochures for Pre-Montessori, Primary and Elementary aged students have gone out in cubbies. Early summer camp registration closes April 1st. After this date, limited schedule options may be available.
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on February 14. Celebration details are included inside your child’s classroom newsletter. A pro-tip when helping your child make cards for their classmates, have them write their name on the each envelope instead of each student’s name. This will help in preparing and passing them out. Also, please remember that our school does have a low sugar policy so please keep any candy or sweets at home. Adding stamps, stickers, pencils, etc. are another way to add to the valentine fun!

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.

Updating your information in Alma

Drop-In Rate Correction
It has recently come to our attention that our drop in hourly rate for non scheduled drop was billing incorrectly. The amount was lower than our current published rates. While we will not be collecting retroactively, please be aware that beginning in February we will be billing the correct hourly rate of $9/hr. For drop in days the rate is $45/day.
