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.

THIS WEEK IS EARTH WEEK!
Our Student Council has planned some wonderful things to help support a clean Earth. Check out the daily schedule beginning tomorrow and see what you might be able to do!!
Monday: Pick up 10 pieces of trash
Tuesday: Water conservation day (example- take 5 minute showers, bring your own water to school, give extra water to plants or pets rather than dumping, turn water off while brushing your teeth)
Wednesday: Walk/bike/carpool to school (Earth Day)
Thursday: Paper-free day (or minimize paper use day)
Friday: Use reusable containers for lunch, no waste for the day

DEL MAR BEACH CLEAN UP
As you know, Student Council is focusing on "giving back" this year. With this being said, we would like to invite you to Willow Grove's First Annual Beach Clean-Up! Please join us on Saturday, April 25th, in Del Mar from 8:30-9:30 a.m. We will meet on the grassy area near 15th Street and Jakes. Because this is an off campus event, your child must attend with a chaperone/adult. Each parent must assume all responsibility (driving arrangements, etc.) for his/her child. Additionally, we encourage everyone to carpool (if possible) due to limited beach parking. We look forward to joining together as a school community!
