Ms. Kim’s Notes

Please be advised that Heritage Week on Hilton Head is April 9-15 and typically traffic is very cumbersome getting off the island. Please make arrangements now for your emergency pickup plans. Our schools will close promptly at their scheduled times and late pickup fees will apply.

 

Parent Reminders

*Weather change is here and so are the bugs! Remember to apply your bug spray every morning prior to leaving home, so your child can enjoy playground time without bugs biting. This also includes sunscreen. Teachers will only reapply in the afternoon if necessary.

*3 minute parking under the porchere. If you would like to visit, please park in the parking lot. Do not enter the drive-thru the wrong way or improperly back-in. Take note of your speed, little children run from parent’s hands quite often.

*If your child is sent home sick, we will contact you in order to arrange immediate pick-up of your child. We understand that there are circumstances when you can’t make it immediately, but you must have a back-up plan. We expect you or your back-up to pick up within the hour, of when you are notified. Failure to do so within the hour will result in additional fees.

*Please note that if your child is absent or sent home after developing fever, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, cough, green runny nose, or anything that is contagious, it is our policy that he or she must remain home until symptom-free for 24-hours, without the aid of medication regardless of your Doctor’s note of return. This means your child will not be allowed to attend that following school day. A child must stay home when their condition causes one-on-one care. For an example, diarrhea caused by an antibiotic still requires your child to stay home. Please review our sick policy in your Parent Handbook.

*Special reminder, all medications for children must be signed in at the office, accompanied by a physician’s note. Medications that are prescribed once or twice daily must be given at home.

*Please update the office if your contact or billing information has changed.

 

Serving Christ,
Ms. Kim
