NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20 -
School will be closed on Monday, February 20, in observance of Presidents' Day.
When your student is going to be absent from school we request that parents e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school
attendance line at 610-240-1400 Option 5 by 8:55 am of the morning when their child will be absent. After attendance is taken in the classroom, the office verifies all student absences and calls to check on those who have not called in to report absences. Absences are considered lawfully excused when a student is prevented from attendance for mental, physical, or other urgent reasons such as illness, family emergency, death of a family member, medical or dental appointments, authorized school activities, educational travel with prior approval, pre-approved religious instruction (limit 36 hours per year), or a bona fide religious holiday.
DONATE YOUR EXTRA PANTS
The nurse’s office is in need of extra pairs of pants for those times when accidents happen or children fall in the mud. Do you have any that your children have outgrown? We will accept any size, any color, any style.
PLAYGROUND EXCAVATION WORK
We are ready to start construction on our turf field on the playground in the Spring! The first phase of the project will be excavation. We are reaching out to our Beaumont community to see if you, or any company you know, would be interested in bidding on this work.
Please contact Ann McCarthy or Courtney O’Brien as soon as possible. We are targeting to have this project completed by Spring Break so our students can enjoy the new field in the spring.
