Office News 1/7/22
Happy New Year Acorn Families! We are excited to have students and faculty back on campus ready for a new semester. Many many thanks to Karl Erickson (Ethan's Dad) for our fabulous new mud kitchen. The children have LOVED playing with it. Thank you for this wonderful addition to our playground. Thank you also to the Owls Class for their welcome back to school cookie treat for the staff. We appreciate your thoughtful gift!!!
Enrollment forms were distributed this week. Please return your form and enrollment fee ASAP to secure your spot for next year. As a reminder, please note your first and second choices of classes. On January 13, 2022, enrollment will be opened to alumni and we will open enrollment to the community on January 18th. Classes are filled on a first come first serve basis. If you are unsure of the right placement for your child next year, please call the office and we are happy to speak with you. For families interested in Kindergarten who were not able to attend the Zoom information session on Thursday, please contact Mara or Wendy and we will send you the recording.
Please familiarize yourself with the new Metro Health Covid Guidelines. We do have a limited supply of rapid tests available for purchase. A box of two rapid tests is $25. If you are in a pinch, please call the office for a test. If you find rapid tests, please consider helping us restock our supply by purchasing some for us. As a reminder, viruses other than Covid circulate in schools. Please do not send your child to school with fever, runny nose, cough, diarrhea, or other symptoms. Children must be symptom free for 24 hours or have a doctor's note before returning to school. If your child has a fever (100.4 or higher), they must be symptom free AND have a doctor's note to return to school.
We are having an Open House for new families on Saturday, January 8 from 10-12. Please tell any interested friends or neighbors and ask them to call the office if they are interested in attending.
Have a wonderful weekend!
