Classroom Policies

  • LUNCH/SNACKS: Please pack a morning and an afternoon snack along with a lunch and juice/water bottle each day. We are a peanut & nut free classroom.

    ILLNESS: Any child with obvious symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, or any other contagious virus must remain at home. A child with illnesses such as these will find it difficult to participate in daily activities and may be contagious to other children. Children must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. Please contact the school if your child will be absent.

    BIRTHDAYS: On your child’s birthday you may send in a book for your child to share with the class. This book should be selected by your child and will be dedicated to St. Joseph's pre-k in honor of their birthday. The book can be a book from home, a used book, or a brand new book. These books will remain in the pre-k class room for your children to enjoy. This is a great way for your child to share their stories with their friends!

    ATTENDANCE: Please call in the morning if your child will not be in that day, if they will be unusually late or if they will be picked up early.

    DROP OFF/PICK UP PROCEDURE: Our class door opens at 7:30 AM and is open until 6:00 PM.  Please walk your child into the school and assist them with hanging up their coats and backpacks. Please pick up your child each day from their classroom. If anyone else will be picking up your child please send a note with that person's name and their relationship to your child and they must show us a license at dismissal.

    LABELS: Please label everything that comes to school including backpacks, lunchboxes, water bottles, coats, sweaters, extra clothing, etc.

    EXTRA CLOTHES: Please bring in 2 extra sets of clothes. Include pants, shirt, underwear and socks. Please place clothes in a Ziploc bag with your child's name on it. If your child needs to use these clothes please wash them and return them the next day.

    SNOW DAYS: We follow Saint Joseph School's the snow day procedures. When Saint Joseph School closes you will be notified through a school email. The announcement will be made on Channel 5.

    PARENT COMMUNICATION: I am always available to discuss your child's day.
