  • Greetings Kangaroo Families:  



    Let me begin by thanking you for an awesome start to the year. We appreciate all the support you have shown to prepare your learners for a smooth transition back to school.


    With learning in full swing, now is a good time to once again address your child’s goals and incentives for this school year. Reminding our children that learning is their job and supporting them will strengthen the foundation needed to establish a love for learning.


    ’Tis the season for coughs, drips, sore throats, and fevers. Here are a few reminders to keep kids healthy and ready to learn:


    • Stay home when you are sick. If your learner has a fever, or is under the weather, the best medicine is rest. Students should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
    • Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after a cough or sneeze. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. A fun way to make sure learners are washing long enough is to sing “The Alphabet Song” and have them wash until the song is over.
    • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
    • Don’t spread germs. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away after use and wash your hands. If a tissue is not available, cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve, not your hand.
    • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill.


    As always, we are excited you have chosen to share your learner with us as we continue on our educational journey through the school year. If you haven’t had an opportunity to participate in one of our events, I want to encourage you to get involved. Visit the announcements section of the school webpage for more information.



    Your partner in learning,
