Frequently Asked Questions
Kindergarten ABC's Handbook
: This link will take you to an overview of many important topics to help you understand and answer questions about Kindergarten in Room 24.
Some of the most popular FAQs are below :)
What if my child needs to leave school early or has a change in his/her dismissal plan? Please send a note if there is a change in your child's dismissal plans (i.e. going home with a friend, not riding the bus, etc.). A note will help us to have a smooth end to our day.
How should my child's lunch money be handled? Please send lunch money in an envelope that is labeled with your child's name. You can send the envelope in your child's green take home folder. You may also make contributions to your child's lunch money fund online through the district website or by sending a check. Some parents send a check at the beginning of the month or on Mondays.
Are birthdays celebrated? Room 24 loves to celebrate birthdays! Please give at least 1-2 days notice. Please feel free to send the treat with your child that morning or join your child for lunch and bring the treat then! All birthday treats will be shared during our lunch time from 12:18-12:48 or afterwards on the playground. Healthy treats are suggested, but it is up to you and your child to decide what treat you would like to share. Please refrain from any treat containing peanuts or other nut material. Gray's Woods is not permitted to assist in the distribution of party invitations- this will need to be done outside of school. Thank you for understanding!
How is information sent to and from school? Please check your child's green take home folder daily. This will have a "Keep at Home" side for student work and notes to keep at home along with a "Return to School" side for notes that need to be returned. Please also put notes or important information that needs to be seen by the teacher in the Return to School side as these folders will be checked each morning.
Can I volunteer in my child's classroom? Absolutely! More information coming soon :)
What about book orders? Throughout the school year book orders from Scholastic Book Club will be sent home. You can also order online at anytime. A link can be found on the page titled, Scholastic Book Orders. If you choose to purchase any books for your child and are sending in money, please make checks payable to Scholastic Books. No cash, please!
How do I contact my child's teacher? If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me and I will be happy to help. You can call the school at 235-6100 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will get back to you as soon as possible.
