Director Note:
As a notice to all new families and a reminder to existing families, please remember that sippy cups are not allowed at school. We have cups available for the students to use while here. If you would like to send your child with a designated water bottle that is sealed that is fine, but we ask that it not include milk, juice, or anything other substance besides water. Please make sure the water bottle is labeled with your child’s name and is taken home daily to be washed. Thank you!
