Dear Stratton families:
Everyone is looking forward to our annual Curriculum Night, a unique opportunity to connect and collaborate between families and faculty!
A couple of program notes for this Thursday:
Classroom teachers will be hosting families according to the following schedule to allow for families to visit multiple grade classrooms for multiple children: Grades K, 1 and 2: 6:00-6:45; Grades 3, 4 and 5: 7:00-7:45 pm.
All Specialist teachers (PE, Music, Art and Library) will have a "table fair" in the Gym for you to swing by and learn about their programming at a time you might not be in a classroom teacher's room. Also, our SLC faculty will be in their programming space for families to visit during either session. Finally, our service provider faculty and other special educators will be in classroom teacher presentations in order to answer questions about their programming.
I'll be hosting a principal Q & A in the Cafeteria for families to join during either of the two sessions. Dr. O'Brien will be in the lobby/main entrance to greet and connect with families as well.
See you on Thursday evening!
Welcome To Our School!
Dear Stratton Families,
I am so excited to start this year and welcome back everyone, as well as meet the newcomers to the Stratton community. I wanted to relay a few quick items as the school year begins.
Medications for 22/23:
If your child will need any medication at school, we will need this APS Medication Plan filled out, as well as any Asthma Action Plan or Allergy Action Plan to accompany emergency medications. These documents need to be updated every year. Students with food allergies also must have this Health Care Plan filled out each year. All medications need to be in the original container with the prescription label attached. An adult needs to drop off medications to the nurse when school begins, and please check expiration dates and note if you need to replace expiring medications during the school year. Parents of children with life threatening allergies should read the district’s LTA Allergy Policy, and review the Field Trip Policy in the Elementary Student Handbook.
Incoming Kindergarteners for 22/23:
Please make sure you have uploaded all immunization documents, the most current physical form, and you have indicated if your child has any special medical needs during the enrollment process in Powerschool. Send a copy of your child’s updated physical/immunization forms to: email@example.com. Double check your documents to make sure there is proof of a recent vision exam (within 1 year) and a lead test date, as these are required by the state. Please reach out to me via email if you need to schedule a meeting to discuss your child’s medical condition.
I recommend that all students have a current physical on file here, so feel free to send in your child’s physical as they get them yearly. I do have to collect all K, 1st and 4th graders' physicals per state mandates as well, so if your child will be entering those grades, please keep that in mind. You can send a photo to my email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or send in a hard copy.
