Dear Parents/Guardians:

It was wonderful to see such a great turnout at the recent parent-teacher conferences! It was our first experience with the online scheduling program, and we appreciate your cooperation as we worked out the kinks this time. Thank you for your support as we work together to help each child become his/her “personal best” – academically, socially, emotionally!

We now seem to be experiencing the delight of late fall in New England, mainly dropping temperatures! (At least we’re not in Buffalo!) Please be sure to send your child to school with a warm winter coat, warm hat/hood, and mittens/gloves. Please label all your child’s belongings with their name. LABEL, LABEL, LABEL, EVERYTHING! The children will be enjoying fresh air and physical activity -- the benefits of outdoor recess -- every day unless it’s raining. If you are in need of a warm coat, gloves, boots, etc., for your child, please contact Mrs. Vieira, our nurse (ext. 2405) or Mr. Rodriguez, our social worker (ext. 2408).

Last spring, the Board of Education revised the Attendance Policy which requires documentation of every absence. In addition to calling in your child’s absence, please send in a note upon the child’s return. Please see the attached letter for a detailed summary of the new policy. (To check out the details of the policy, go to Torrington Public Schools> Board of Education> Policy Manual> Policy # 6006.)

If at any time you have questions or concerns, please contact me via email jcreedon@torrington.org or call me at 860-489-2500 extension 2404.

Wishing you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,

 

Joanne R. Creedon

Principal

Estimados Padres/Encargados:

¡Fue maravilloso ver la gran participación en las recientes reuniones entre padres y maestros! Fue nuestra primera experiencia con el programa de citas por internet, y agradecemos su cooperación mientras nos acostumbramos también por primera vez. Gracias por su apoyo mientras trabajamos juntos para ayudar a cada niño/a llegar a ser lo mejor que pueda—¡académicamente, socialmente, y emocionalmente!

Ahora estamos experimentando el encanto de otoño tardío en Nueva Inglaterra, ¡principalmente la bajada de las temperaturas! (¡Por los menos no estamos en Buffalo!) Favor de asegurarse mandar a su hijo/a a la escuela con una chaqueta de invierno calentita, gorra/capucha calentita, y manoplas/guantes. Favor de marcar todas las pertenecías de su hijo/a con su nombre. ¡MARCAR, MARCAR, MARCAR, TODO! Los niños estarán disfrutando del aire fresco y de la actividad física—los beneficios de recreo afuera—cada día menos los días que esté lloviendo. Si necesita chaqueta caliente, guantes, botas, etc., para su hijo/a, favor de ponerse en contacto con la Sra. Vieira, nuestra enfermera (ext. 2405) o Sr. Rodriguez, nuestro trabajador social (ext. 2408).

La primavera pasada, la Junta Educativa reviso la Política de Asistencia que requiere documentación sobre cada ausencia. En adición a llamar para la ausencia de su hijo/a, favor de mandar una nota cuando su hijo/a regrese a la escuela. Favor de ver la noticia adjuntada para un resumen detallado de la nueva política. (Para ver los detalles de la política, vaya a Torrington Public Schools> Board of Education> Policy Manual> Policy # 6006.)

Si en algún momento tiene preguntas o preocupaciones, favor de ponerse en contacto conmigo vía email jcreedon@torrington.org o llamarme al 860-489-2500 extensión 2404.

¡Deseándoles a ustedes y a sus familias un Día de Acción de Gracias maravilloso!

Sinceramente,

 

 

Joanne R. Creedon
