Parent Bulletin
October 28, 1999

Dear Parents,

Tomorrow is Book Character Day. Ms. Napolitan and the rest of the staff have been working very hard to present us with a better activity every year.

On Tuesday, November 2nd, we will be having an assembly to kick off Family Heritage Month. A dance group from Denny will be one of the featured attractions.

Our Monthly Recognition Award winners are being selected this week by classroom teachers. We hope to acknowledge these students during the assembly on Tuesday.

In the September 30th Parent Bulletin I mentioned that we would be adding a primary reading group with the use of federal class size reduction. We had a person who accepted the job, but later had to decline the position. We are back to square one with this search. In addition the AmeriCorps, position is still not filled. The Bon Marche' is assisting us in the search to fill that position.

There has been one adjustment to the new Disciplinary Plan. Kindergartners and grade one students will be given in-school suspensions when they violate the zero tolerance policy. A complete outline of the entire policy will be sent home during conferences.

Have a fun-filled and safe Halloween weekend.

Barry S. Dorsey

Medication at School
As the cold and flu season begins, we are finding a number of children bringing medicine to school. Students MAY NOT bring over the counter medication to school. Students that have prescription medicine must bring the medication to the office with a completed AUTHORIZATION FOR MEDICATIONS TO BE TAKEN AT SCHOOL form. This form was in the Parent Information Packet that went home the first Friday of school in September. If you need another copy of the form please call the office at 933-5350 and we will send a copy home with your child. For students that must take medication three time a day, please ask the doctor if the child can take it before school, when they get home from school and before bed. If a parent wants the child to take over the counter medication during school hours, the parent must come in and administer the medication themselves.
