15 Cranberry Highway Newsletter – May 2023

Hello to all Countryside Families just a few reminders and fun days below.

· Please do not forget with the warmer weather approaching to switch winter clothes for spring clothes.

· Please be sure your child’s clothes, formula/food and diapers are stocked up weekly and labeled.

· We are asking that all backpacks are to stay at home, as we have a spot for all kid’s belongings here at school and we have limited space in the cubbies.

· Necklaces, Bracelets, watches and rings are not to be worn at school for safety reasons.

· Please be sure your child has arrived by 9:30 for the day, unless you have an appointment. The morning structure and routine is important for the kids and out curriculum-based program starts at that time for all classrooms. We are limiting any classroom disruptions once our daily routine has begun.

· Just a reminder that all topical ointments need a signature. If you have sunscreen, bug spray, chap stick etc. please make sure we know in the front foyer so we can have to fill out the correct papers.
