Office News 11/5/21

Happy November!  It's hard to believe we are rapidly approaching the holiday season.  Robert Shaw will be on campus on Wednesday, November 10th at 9:30 to provide make up pictures. These pictures are for those children who were absent during our first two picture days.  If your child does not typically attend school on Wednesdays but needs their picture taken, please plan to bring your child that morning for photos.

As you may have seen on the news, the FDA and the CDC recently approved that Covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11.   If your child does receive the Covid-19 vaccine, please submit a copy of your child's vaccine card to the office.  This information will be helpful as it impacts quarantine and potential spread in the case of a positive Covid case.  

It's Scholastic book time again.  The Acorn will be putting in an order TODAY in order for books to be delivered December 17.  Orders placed after today may not arrive in time for the holidays.  If you'd like to place an order go to Scholastic and use the Class Activation Code: HD6YJ.  Also, as you engage in your holiday shopping, please don't forget that The Acorn is an Amazon Smiles recipient.  You can select The Acorn: A School for Young Children to give a percentage of your total purchase back to The Acorn.

As a reminder, school photos are available on the secure section of our website.  Robert Shaw is delivering print orders to The Acorn every two weeks.  Print orders placed after November 24th will incur a shipping charge of $10-$13.  Digital photo orders will be delivered to your email and will be ready to use for holiday cards.

We will not have school the week of November 22 for Thanksgiving Break. We are always erring on the side of caution and transparency to keep our entire community safe and healthy.  If you travel over Thanksgiving or celebrate with large groups, we ask you to be vigilant as you celebrate holidays and continue best practices such as mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing. We had our first positive Covid case at The Acorn last year during the holiday season so when in doubt, please stay home with any symptoms or if needing to quarantine.  If you need help discerning if quarantine is necessary, please call the office and we are happy to talk it through with you.

For those who have read this far in the newsletter, congratulations!  Please email and tell me one fact from the Office News and one fact from your child's class specific newsletter.  All those who email me by Wednesday, November 10 will be entered into a drawing to win a free prize.  Prize winners will be announced in next Friday's newsletter.

Have a great weekend!
