WW - A message from Dr. Nauerth
Dear Parents & Guardians,
Wow, it’s December already and the school year is nearly half complete. Just 10 more school days before we are out for Winter Break from December 20th – January 2nd. We will be back to school on Thursday, January 3rd. I wanted to reach out to you with some important reminders for a successful end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 for your student.
- Our building opens each day at 8:10 a.m. for all students and breakfast starts at that time.If your student needs to come to school earlier, you must enroll them for early morning care with the Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan.
- All teachers pick up students for the start of the school day at 8:35 and classroom learning begins promptly at 8:40 a.m.If your student is coming in the front doors at 8:40 a.m. they are tardy; students must be in their seats at 8:40 a.m. when school begins. Please help your student succeed by arriving at school between 8:30-8:35 a.m. at the latest.
- If your student is absent because of illness, appointment, or other reason you must call the office (785-587-2170) by 9:10 a.m. on the day of absence to notify the school.
- All after school transportation changes must be called/emailed to the office by 3:15 p.m. on the afternoon of the change.Change of transportation goes to classroom teachers by 3:20 p.m. and we are not able to accommodate late calls.
- If you need to pick up your student for an appointment, please note that, we will not retrieve him/her from the classroom until you arrive at school.Please arrive early enough so you are not rushed to get to your appointment.
- For your child to receive the best possible education, we need all students at school in a timely manner and to attend as many days as possible if they are not sick or an emergency arises.
- Research shows that regular attendance leads to academic success.Missing as little as 5% of school days, or 9 school days in a year, for any reason can have a detrimental effect on the academic progress of a student.
