Dear Parents and Guardians:
School is just around the corner. August 21st is our first day of school for Kindergarten-4th grade. Pre- K begins August 24th. They have home visits to complete before school starts for them. We are looking forward to another great year here in Chandlerville! We will have Open House, Thursday, August 17th. Open house is from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Go directly to your child’s classroom, drop off their supplies, meet their teacher, sign up for parent teacher conferences and get an ice cream certificate for The Creamery, downtown.
August 21st, our first day of school, will be a FULL DAY. That is the day of the solar eclipse and we do not want children exposed to the sun until the eclipse is over. We will have early out Tuesday, Aug 22nd and Wednesday, August 23nd- one hour early.
Dress code reminders: shorts must be fingertip in length. So, please don’t send your child in shorts or skirts that are any shorter than that guideline. Here at the elementary, we will continue our rule that students may wear sleeveless shirts as long as the straps are at least two finger widths across. Spaghetti strap tops or tank tops are NOT permitted. Children must wear or bring tennis shoes daily for recess and P.E. Sandals are not allowed for P.E. or recess. Students will have to sit out of these activities if they don’t have tennis shoes with them each day.
Your child can have Gameboy or Leapfrog type games on the bus if they have an E for everyone rating but tablets and phones for elementary students are NOT allowed. There are too many inappropriate games, songs and saved information that we do not have the manpower to supervise. If they bring phones and tablets they will be asked to keep them in their bookbag.
Registration is Wednesday, August 9th in Chandlerville from 4-7 in the Library/Computer lab and in Ashland from 2-7 in the Cafeteria. Please register so we know your child is a returning student. I look forward to seeing you at Open House on August 17th!
