What’s New Wednesday


Tomorrow is an early dismissal (2pm) day for parent teacher conferences.  Due to the spike in Covid 19 cases in CT, all teacher conferences will be virtual.  Please remember to sign up for a conference time with your child’s teacher if you have not done so already.     

To All Preschool Parents:  All preschool students are required by The Ct State Department of Public Health to have the influenza (flu) vaccine by December 31. If your child is receiving the influenza vaccine for the first time, two doses separated by 28 days are required.  The flu vaccine has to be administered to your child between August 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.  If you have not already done so, please make an appointment for your child to receive this vaccine prior to December 31st. Proof of vaccination must be provided to the school nurse by January 1, 2021.

Comenzando el pasado Otoño, el departamento de Salud Pública de Ct a ordenado la vacuna de la influenza como un nuevo requerimiento para los preescolares. Esta vacuna  deberá ser administrada entre el 1 de agosto y el 31 de diciembre del 2021. Por favor haga una cita para que su niño(a) reciba la vacuna si aún no lo ha hecho.
La documentación de la administración de la vacuna deberá ser enviada a la enfermera escolar. A pesar de que Ud., tiene hasta el 31 de diciembre para que su niño(a) sea vacunado, es recomendable que lo haga lo antes posible. Todo niño(a) que no reciba la vacuna antes del 31 de diciembre del 2021, no será permitido en la escuela en enero del 2021.  

Parents please take the time to look through the lost and found bin in the lower school vestibule if you know your child has missing personal items, especially coats, hats and gloves.  The bin is overflowing at this time.  Please label all clothing so that we can more easily return items to their owners in a timely manner.
