Weekly Update 10/20/19
We hope everyone had a nice 4 day weekend. With the break, 13 staff member were able to travel to Atlanta to the EL National Conference to deeper our learning around EL and best instructional practices. We were also able to take 9 students to model a language dive in front of 60+ educators. It was a great weekend and we are ready to jump back into action tomorrow.
School Fees and Balances
As a charter school, we operate off a very tight budget and every dollar counts. We maximize every dollar to have direct impact on students. With that said, it is very important that all school fees and lunch balances are taken care of in a timely fashion. Notices are sent home frequently as a reminder. Currently, any student with a negative balance of more than $50 will have all money turned into the front office (field trips, events, and other fees) applied directly to that debt first per board policy. Our board is also working on an updated debt policy which will be published in October. Anytime you need assistance or a payment plan, please reach out to us and we will work something out. If you have questions, please let us know.
Updates from the Health Room
The Nurses Office will NO longer be stocking Tylenol, Ibuprofen or Tums. If your student needs to receive these medications, you will have to have to fill out a form to have the medication available for them. Forms are available in the Nurse's office. Once the form is filled out, parents must bring the medication in the original box, and the form to the nurses office. Students are NOT allowed to bring them in.
Nut Free School!
Just a reminder, we are a nut free campus. To read more about our policy, click here.
