- Students should wear clothes that are rugged, comfortable and appropriate for school. It is inevitable that clothes will become soiled, so please save good clothes for holidays and special events. A complete extra set of clothing, which will be kept at school and will be used throughout the school year, is required for all children. Please change clothes seasonally.
- If your child stays for lunch, please include a plastic cup in the lunch box for milk. We heat up lunches only through the three year old classes, not the four year old or the kindergarten classes.
- If your child is staying through nap time, please send in a sheet, blanket and, if necessary, a sleep toy.
- Please label items that your child brings to school! This includes all clothing, jackets, hats, extra clothing, lunch boxes, toys and books. Anything labeled can be returned. A lost and found will be kept for you to look through if you are missing something. Each year we accumulate a considerable amount of toys and clothing which are donated to a charity at the end of the school year. NO toy guns or weapons of any kind (for obvious reasons).
- Disposable diapers and wipes must be provided by the parents of the children not yet toilet-trained.
Snacks are served mid-morning and at approximately 3:15 p.m. every day. A nutritious snack with juice in the morning and milk in the afternoon is provided.
All students who stay for lunch should bring their lunch in a clearly labeled lunch box/bag. Please include a plastic cup. Milk is provided as a beverage. Please do not send in chewing gum or candy. Medications should never be put in the child’s lunch box/bag, not even cough drops or throat lozenges.
Formula and baby food for infants must be provided by the parents. Nursing mothers may come to the school to feed their infants. When the child is able to make the change from formula to food, the school will provide juice and whole milk; parents would still be responsible for bringing other food items.
