Read Families- We could use your help! The Health Office is greatly in need of clothing changes for our students here, sizes 4 through Junior. Through past donations from staff and families, we have been able to supply extra socks, undergarments, pants, t-shirts and sweatshirts to those students who may need a change during the school day, for various reasons. Unfortunately, we are running very low. If you happen to do a closet clean out and are willing to part with elementary school-sized student clothing, we would be so grateful!!! Please feel free to send clothing in with your student to bring to the office, or you can stop by the school during regular school hours. If you know your child may have accidents at times please send extra clothing with them to store in the classroom. THANK YOU in advance!!!

NO SCHOOL FRIDAY'S
This year we will NOT be having any early release days. One Friday a month will be set aside for Staff Professional Development and the students will have NO SCHOOL.
For additional school days off please see the 2022-23 School Calendar
After School Programs
The school day ends at 2:45 and students must be picked up at that time. If you are unable to pick up your student at this time and they are not able to walk home, students must then be enrolled in one of the after care programs that are available.
There is the YMCA after school program, which is held in house but run by the YMCA. Registration is done online at the oshkoshymca.org. If you do not have internet access you can contact Crystal Resop at (920)230-8912.
The other after school program is the Boys & Girls club. A bus will pick them up from school and transport them to the club. Contact Lindsay Clark at email@example.com or call the Boys & Girls Club at (920)-233-1414.
FUN & ONE
At Algoma Boulevard United Methodist Church will be providing a fun day for the kids on 2/10, 3/10 & 5/12 which are days that school is not in session.
Call if you’re interested! No pre-registration required, just necessary contact information!
Separate gym shoes are required for inside only usage. This has become a huge safety factor in that they come into the gym, especially if they are wearing the wet boots/shoes they wore outside. Thank you to all who have already sent shoes to school. If you have not, please do so as soon as possible.

BREAKFAST/LUNCH MENUS & FOOD SERVICE INFORMATION
School Starts at 7:45. Students may be dropped off no earlier than 7:30 as there is NO supervision till then. Teachers will bring their students in at the first bell at 7:40. If a student arrives after the final bell (7:45) they are to enter through Door 1. Students arriving 7:45-7:55 will be marked tardy and after 7:55 they will be Unexcused.
If your child is going to be absent or late for school for any reason, please contact the office at 920-424-0172. If we are unable to speak to us directly, you may leave a message on the voice mail system to report the absence. Please be specific when calling your child in. If it is an illness we do need to know all the symptoms the child is having as well as the best number to reach you at if we have any further questions. Absences are considered "unexcused" if we do not hear from a parent/guardian by 9 am. Students who are absent from school more than 10 minutes of any part of the day without a proper excuse shall be recorded as unexcused. A student who is absent less than 10 minutes of a day shall be recorded as tardy. The time a student enters or leaves the building will be documented, and the system will calculate the absence accordingly and uniformly across the district. Please keep this in mind as you schedule appointments for your children. It is always best to schedule appointments during non-school hours. Students are expected to be in class from 7:45 to 2:45 daily.
Drop Off & Pick up Procedures
Please see the below maps for the pickup and drop procedures.
Treats: Edible birthday treats are NOT allowed per district policy. Students are allowed to bring a small, tangible birthday treat such as pencils, stickers, glowsticks, etc.
Invitations: Classroom teachers may not distribute birthday invitations to students unless they are going to an entire class. If you are inviting kids from another class, that whole entire class would need to be invited too. We prefer that birthday invitations get handled outside of school.
The district media department wanted to challenge all students K-12 with a fun reading challenge! For the month of March, students can work on getting a 3-in-a-row BINGO. For more info click the following link:
