Halloween Party October 29th

Halloween is just around the corner and we know all of the students are getting excited about their costumes and Trick or Treating! The students at Haines WILL be allowed to wear their costumes to school. We ask that you consider whether or not your child can go to the bathroom independently while wearing their costume and if they can sit comfortably while wearing the costume on the floor and in their chair. Accessories should be left in a bag until the party please. Remember that no look alike weapons are allowed as part of a costume. Please leave these items at home. Students will wear their costumes home on the bus and we will once again ask that they store the accessories in a bag so no part of their costume is lost. Please let us know if you have any questions. No treat bags are allowed at all! Students MAY NOT hand out anything to classmates. Do not forget that October 29th is an early dismissal. School will be released at 12:15.

If ANYONE in your household is ill please keep your student home and seek medical advice and/or testing. Do not send your child to school if ANYONE in the house is awaiting an alternate diagnosis due to COVID like symptoms, is undergoing COVID testing due to symptoms, are awaiting COVID test results due to symptoms, or has been diagnosed with COVID. **If you are ever unsure what to do-CALL or email! We will walk you through the proper procedure to follow. It is very important for you to understand that this can lead to not only your child having to quarantine from school but also for several other students that sit near them on the bus or in the classroom to have to quarantine as well.

Please communicate regarding any illness or need to quarantine with Mrs. Rademacher, School Nurse (jrademacher@nlsd122.org) and myself (mhall@nlsd122.org). We want the highest priority for our teachers to be teaching in the classroom at this time and supporting your student instead of navigating health needs. We also want to maintain privacy for families related to health conditions.**Please note that I do check my email through the weekend and during the evening. Please feel free to send emails to me during these times so we can be proactive in addressing any issues and answering your questions.  Our #1 goal is to stay safe. We cannot do that without your help - Dr. Hall


*A NOTE from the school nurse

*Please be aware of food allergies.  Students in our class are allergic to a variety of nuts.
