EARLY
CHECK OUT

Please try to schedule appointments after school hours.  Students arriving late to class or leaving class early disrupt the classroom.  If your student must leave campus early, please let the teacher know in the morning so they can have your student sent up to the office on time.  Please do not call the office to have your student dismissed, we will call when you arrive.

REMINDERS...

All visitors to our campus must check in through the Administration Office at the front of the school.


WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD STAY HOME FROM SCHOOL?

Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning. The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:

REASONS TO KEEP YOUR CHILD AT HOME!

~Illness during the night
~Fever is present (100 degrees or greater)
~Complaints of nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, headache, diarrhea prior to leaving for school
~Development of a rash on face and/or body
~Has a severe cold, cough and/or sore throat
~Has inflamed eye(s) with discharge from them

Please Remember: An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom. The spread of illness and disease through class or school can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home during the acute stage of an illness. If the school health tech detects any of the above, your child will be sent home.

People with influenza-like illness are to remain home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100o F [37.8o C]) without the use of fever-reducing medications.

A student’s absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: (858) 674-6300 press #2.

BUY YOUR 2015-2016 SCHOOL SUPPLIES SOON
2015-2016 Class Supply Wish Lists are rolling in, and The Willow Grove Foundation would like to make purchasing these items for next year just a bit easier. Order with us and have the supplies waiting for you at school on the First Day. We are using SchoolKidz again, and you will be able to purchase these supplies, already in kits, and have these kits delivered directly to Willow Grove. Not only will you escape waiting in long lines in August, a portion of each kit purchased will go directly to the Foundation to help fund programs like PE, Music, and the latest technology. The link will be up soon on the Foundation website!

FOUNDATION BOARD WELCOMES NEW MEMBERS
The Foundation would like to welcome its new members for the 2015-2016 school year. We are excited for Nicole Asch, Kathleen Higgins, Kim Kaelin, Nicole Link, Stephanie Matinpour, and Caitlin Panesse to join the board for next year. We'd also like to say goodbye and a big thank you to departing members Kara Hansen, Alan Jenks and Romy Loseke.

THE PTA WELCOMES 2015-2016 NEW MEMBERS

Saying goodbye and THANK YOU to past board members Sally Lee, Anyi Lee, Andrea Lynam, Janice Jaurigue and Dawn Shetzer is difficult.
