SNOW DAYS/DELAYS AND DRESS CODE (from Mrs. Floyd)

Also, this is a reminder to please check the Handbook for clarification on dress code. Please make sure your child/ren are wearing a belt for grades 4 -8, girls are wearing the correct plaid (solid color skirts, skorts and jumpers are not allowed), Mass uniforms must be worn on Thursdays (see handbook for exact specifications), socks should be visible and the correct color (blue, khaki, white or black). All regulations are listed in the handbook which can be found on our website. If you have any questions, let us know

**SCHOOL/HOME WORK – We have been in school a little over three weeks now, and for the most part the students are doing a great job of completing and turning in their work.  However, I have a few missing assignments from a few students.  They usually tell me their parents took it out of their folder and they left it at home :). If you notice in their Assignment Notebooks that they are missing an assignment, please be sure to ask them about it or check with me for clarification.
