Welcome to our classroom information page!
Below is a list of important classroom information to better prepare you and your child for class. Please ask the teachers or office staff for any clarification, questions, or concerns.
Typical Classroom Schedule
*Teachers adapt school schedule to meet their own needs please see each classroom for their personalized schedule.
The Minimum to expect from your child’s teacher

Important General Classroom tips:
- Wash your and your child’s hands upon arrival
- Label everything your child brings to school
- Notify the school and teachers of any known allergies
- Let your child cry: Most children cry when being left by parents. We understand and expect it. In most cases crying ceases a few moments after parents leave. We will notify the parents of any prolonged crying that may occur. Feel free to call and see how your child is doing if you are worried.
- Check your child’s mailbox: This is an important way of communication between the school and families. *Please ask your child’s teacher where they keep their classroom mailbox.*
Keep your child at home if he or she…
- Has a fever of or above 101* or has had one during the previous 24 hour period
- Is advised by a doctor to remain indoors
- Has a cold that is less than 4 days old
- Has heavy nasal discharge

- Is fussy or cranky, and generally out of sorts
- Unusually drowsy or tired
- Have symptoms of communicable disease (this may include but are not limited to: reddened and itchy eyes, sore throat, headache, spots or rash, abdominal pain, fever)
*Please notify the school at once if your child does contract a communicable disease so that the school can notify the other parents in that specific classroom and or school. Usually it takes more than one child infected with the disease before letters go home.
Your Child may attend if he or she…
- Is over a cold but a minor nasal drip remains
- Has been on antibiotics for over a 24 hr. period and fever is gone
- Has been exposed to a communicable disease but the school has been notified that the incubation period has lapsed and child isn’t showing signs or symptoms.
We would like to welcome our students, new and old, by talking about their friends, family, and community.
To make your child feel warm and surrounded with love and reassurance we are asking each family to make a family poster. The poster will be hung up in the classroom at children’s eye level. These posters encourage communication and aid in comforting your child when they miss you.
As a class we will share the child’s poster by:
- Having them tell us about their family
- Counting how many people are in each family
- Recognizing that each family is special and unique
- Reinforcing we are all a part of God’s family
- Talking about all the different animals we have as pets
*Directions for Family Posters:*
Decorate– Get a piece of poster board and start decorating. Use crayons, paints, markers, stickers, and or scrap booking materials. Be creative and enjoy!
Pictures-Find some pictures of your family, including grandparents, special friends, cousins, pets, and any other important people in your child’s life. Arrange and glue them on the poster board.
Laminate-These posters need to be laminated since they are at a child’s level. You can bring them in already laminated or bring them to the office if you would like us to do so.
