Message from Mrs. Kester
I hope that everyone has had a great week! We have settled into routines and are off to a great start. Please remember to drop your students off no earlier than 7:45 and if your child is eating breakfast, please bring them as close to 7:45 as you can. We start instruction at 8:10 and we want students to have plenty of time to eat. Remember that students enter through the main front doors and either go to breakfast or to the back playground to play.

Kindergarten Dental Screening—All kindergarten students are required to have a dental screening prior to the beginning of the school year.. A form for each student must be on file with the school. Screenings are valid for students from one year prior to enrollment to four months after enrollment date. If the school does not have a screening form on file, screenings will be available for kindergarten students on December 3, 2021. These screenings will be conducted by local dentists and are free. A screening is just a quick look in the mouth, no procedures will be done. If your child has had a screening at their regular dentist, or you have one prior to December 3, please submit the screening form to the school.
