Boxtops For Education
We will continue to participate in the “Boxtops For Education” program for specially designated items throughout the school year. Keep those Boxtops For Education coming!!
Little Folks Day School relies on the timely payment of tuition. Tuition is due in advance. Bills are sent home at the end of each month on the Monday or Tuesday prior to the day on which the tuition is due. Please send tuition in on Thursday or Friday of that week so that we can begin clear on the following Monday. There is a $5.00 per day bookkeeping charge for tuition paid later than 9 AM, Monday of the week for which it is due.
A two week deposit is required of all students. At this point in time, all deposits should have been paid in full. If you still have an outstanding balance of your deposit please make the payment immediately. All future payments will be applied toward the deposit balance until it is paid in full.
Please do not use e-mail to contact us for anything that is urgent or time-sensitive. We are unable to check our e-mail often throughout the day and usually only get to read it in the evening. If there is something important that needs to be communicated, please give us a call on the telephone.
We utilize the playground at least once a day as long as the weather cooperates. Please be sure that your child is dressed appropriately for paying outside for part of the day. Please label the inside of your child’s outerwear with their name – if a coat or jacket gets left behind, we will be able to return it to you.
Medicine/ Flu Update
As the cold and flu season is approaching, parents are reminded to use discretion and not send a child to school with a cold, headache, cough, runny nose, etc. The current Covid protocols state that no child should be in school with a fever, cough, or runny nose! If your child comes down with a fever, they must stay at home until they have had no fever for at least 24 hours without medication. A sick child will expose others, and certainly will not benefit from a group situation. Your child will be sent home if any symptoms of illness appear during the school day. If a child is sent home from school, he/she must stay at home the following day so that they have time to properly recover.
Teachers can only distribute medication that has been authorized by a doctor for a specific child. The prescription bottle can serve as the doctor’s authorization. Over-the-counter medication can only be given with the written permission of both the parent and the doctor. In order for teachers to administer medication, the parent must fill out an authorization form in the school office. Any child who is taking an antibiotic must be on the antibiotic for at least 24 hours before returning to school. The only exception would be a child who has an ear infection, an infected wound, or something else which is not contagious. In this case, if the child is returning to school less than 24 hours after receiving the antibiotic, he/she must have a doctor’s note stating the purpose of the antibiotic and the fact that the child is not contagious to others.

Where did the month of October go? The children put their hands to work getting our room ready for Halloween. We had black cats, Frankensteins, ghosts, bats and candy corn hanging on our walls. There were spiders spinning their webs. The children used their creativity to decorate their jack-0-lanterns. Our room looked REALLY SPOOKY!! The children had an interactive story-time with the book, The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything. Did they tell you any of the stories?
We had a great time at our Halloween Parties. The children were so excited to show off their costumes. We danced to some Halloween music and had quite a few laughs reading Halloween stories. Thank you to all the parents who sent in goodies for our parties.
Some of the books we read were: Go Away, Big Green Monster and The Spooky Wheels on the Bus.

Goodbye October! Hello November! We had fun filling our room with all of the spooky decorations we made. We made candy corn, ghosts, bats, spiders, vampires, and jack-o-lanterns. We have been working on recognizing our shapes, colors, and numbers. We learned the letters “Ll” for Leaf, “Xx” for X-ray, and “Jj” for Jack-o-Lantern Everyone had a fabulous, spooky time at our Halloween Parties. Everyone looked great! Thank you so much to everyone who brought in all those delicious goodies! The children had so much fun playing the game: Who Is In The Haunted House? / Musical Squares!
November is here and we are getting ready to talk about special things like being thankful, our families and Thanksgiving. The color for November is blue and the shape is the square.
