All fourth and fifth graders will be assigned a locker. We ask that no locks be purchased to place on your child's locker. Also, children in Middle School like to decorate the interior of their lockers and we reserve that privilege for Middle School because they do have locks and they are responsible for their items if anything is lost or stolen. Again, please do not purchase any locker decor.
Please make sure that your child knows how he/she will be getting home from school every morning. Please remember to update Dismissal Manager if there is a change in dismissal.
If your child is ordering lunch from the cafeteria, please make sure that their order has been entered into Nutrislice.
"To the greatest extent possible we must ensure an environment free of allergens on an ongoing basis across the school year. We incorporate non-food practices when celebrating birthdays. Please do not send cupcakes or other food items to celebrate a birthday," Quaker Ridge School Handbook.
In keeping with the School's non food policy, birthdays will be celebrated with song and warm wishes. The birthday child may bring in a "special" individual treat to mark the occasion. If desired, a small non food treat can be given to his/her classmates (such as a special pencil). Summer birthdays will be celebrated at the end of the year during the month of June.
I am always available to speak on the phone or in person. Please feel free to email me or to call the school to make an appointment. Appointments are available before and after school, or during the school day when time permits.
I check email sporadically throughout the day, and I always try to respond in a timely fashion. If you have an urgent message and need my attention immediately, please call the school directly.
