-What are the kindergarten times for AM and PM sessions?The morning session runs from 8:45 AM to 11:30 AM and the afternoon session runs from 12:45-3:30.-How long must my child be fever or vomit free before returning to school?
Your child must be fever or vomit free for 24 hours from last incident. If you've been contacted by the nurse and your child has been sent home, your child may not return to school the following day. This is to keep the spread of illness through-out the student population and faculty to a minimum.
Do I alert the school when my child will not be attending for that day?When your child is absent, please write a note and send it to school upon their return. A phone call to the school attendance line (610-874-5236) is also appreciated.
-What happens if my child has an "accident" during school hours?
I keep a collection of clothing and newly purchased underwear for any "accidents" that may happen. I ask that you please launder the clothing to return to me ASAP but please keep the underwear.
-Is there opportunity for me to volunteer in the classroom?
Every Friday, I have a guest reader come in and read to the children. Sign-ups will be at Back To School Night. Parents will also be needed for field trips, class parties, Field Day, and Writers' Workshop.
-How do I contact the teacher?
If you need to contact me, a note stapled to the inside of your child's folder will suffice. All folders are checked daily by my assistant shortly after the children arrive. I can be reached by phone in the school office from 8:00 to 8:45 AM and from 12:00 to 12:45 PM. If you wish to speak with me at length, drop me a note or call the office and I will call you later that evening. Although I try to check my e-mail frequently, I cannot rely on checking my e-mail as a dependable communication tool. Sometimes my e-mail is not accessable or reliable, and I may miss your important message.
-Where is the Lost and Found?
My assistant checks all cubbies as we pack up for dismissal. Any items lost at school will be placed in the lost and found container.-How do I go about visiting my child's classroom?When visiting our classroom, please sign in at the office. At this time, you will receive a nametag to wear. The purpose of the nametag is to ensure the safetyand security of the children. All doors at WES are locked during the school day for this purpose as well.
