*The Preschool Room is Nut Free for both 3s and 4s this year. Anything with nuts, processed in a nut facility, or may contain traces of any type of nut will be permitted for snacks or parties. The same for lunches since the preschoolers will eat together and will not be separated.
Here are two links to help with snack/lunch ideas that are Nut Free.
*Lots of sickness will be floating around..please sure your child is fever free for 24 hours before returning to school
*Please refrain from sending toys with your students. They are just too distracted and it causes conflict.
