Dear Stratton families:
The faculty and I would like to try a new iteration of the schedule for Curriculum Night that honors the need for two parent families to attend together multiple presentations of their children's teachers, and the interest all parents have in connecting with Specialist, Special Education and Service Provider faculty:
6:00 - 6:20 session 1 of general ed/classroom teachers
6:20 - 6:30 travel time
6:30 - 6:50 session 2 of general ed/classroom teachers
6:50 - 7:00 travel time to Cafeteria
7:00 - 7:20 Principal presentation
The above schedule will give families to attend two classroom presentations (each session is the same), and/or visit with other faculty throughout the evening.
We're hoping more of the great work that all of the faculty is doing will be able to be shared. Please pass along any feedback after NEXT THURSDAY, 9/26, or any questions you might have.
Also, there was a reminder sent last week that there is no drop off in the morning, nor pick up in the afternoon via the parking lot. It's also important to remember that there is signage that indicates that the Circle is for Bus drop off only. Additionally, if you or members of your family are commuting to work around the school zone, please be mindful of speed and other traffic laws concerning pedestrian safety.

Welcome To Our School!
Greetings from the Stratton Health Office,
The first few weeks of school are such an exciting time for all. I am looking forward to a happy and healthy year for our students, staff and parents.
Just a few reminders I would like to share:
- Students are not allowed to start school unless all immunizations are up to date. I have already reached out to parents/ guardians regarding compliance.
- Emergency Health Forms will be sent home the first week of school. It is very important that these be completed and returned to your child's classroom teacher. Please make sure your Emergency Contact is local and willing to pick up in the event of illness or injury.
- If your child(ren) is sick. PLEASE DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL.
1. Heavy cold symptoms such as deep uncontrollable coughing/sneezing or significant lack of energy even without fever.
2. A sore throat and swollen glands accompanied by a fever; if their sore throat is a strep infection they should remain home until they have been on an antibiotic for 24 hours.
3. A temperature over 100.4 degrees; the student may return to school after being fever free without medication for 24 hours.
4. Vomiting or diarrhea; the student may return to school 24 hours after the last episode.
5. Undiagnosed rash or skin eruptions.
6. Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye);the student may return to school 24 hours after starting an antibiotic.
7. Earache; a child should remain home until they are pain free.
8. Head lice or scabies; keep your child home until they have been properly treated.
9. Any communicable disease.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
