Create your family’s Smart911 Profile

On Wednesday, you may have heard your child talk about the fire drill that occurred at school. Each month, we will practice safely exiting the building in case of an emergency. I’m happy to report that everyone exited quickly and calmly. In your child’s backpack this week, you should find a flyer with information about the lifesaving program Smart911. We hope that you take the time to create a Smart911 Profile for your family, so emergency responders can quickly assist you in an emergency.

Plan to attend our Preschool Back-to-School Luncheon on Friday, September 8th. This is a great opportunity for you to meet other families in your child’s class, hear about the daily routine, and learn about the goals for the year. The PA contacted you this week with a sign-up for bringing side dishes to the luncheon. Ideally one parent for each child can attend this event. We hope to see you on Friday, September 8th at 10:30 a.m.

Friday, September 15th from 9:30-11:00 a.m. we will host Preschool Transportation Day, one of our favorite events of the year! This tradition began 19 years ago by a few dedicated teachers who wanted to share a hands-on experience of how the city moves with the children in their classes. It is such an exciting day, so please send your child to school dressed to spend the morning outside (think shoes to climb in and comfy clothes). We will be hosting our preschool friends from Keystone Academy, too. If you are free and would like to attend with your child, please let your classroom teacher(s) know.

Please note: Preschool classes will operate on a regular schedule for Wednesday, October 11th when the rest of the school dismisses at noon for faculty professional development.
