Happy New Year
The New Year has begun, and it is typically time for extreme temperatures. Children may need heavier coats and hats for outside play. Check with your child’s teacher daily to see if they will be going outside.
School Closings: For inclement weather, we typically follow Gwinnett County Schools for severe weather. We will publish school closings on our Face Book page, email, and the Remind message system. If you have not yet signed up to get updates through Remind: Text @stmattspre to 81010 to receive Remind updates.
Reminder: Sick Policy
We saw sporadic illnesses before the Christmas break. Thank you to the parents who kept their children home when sick. Recently, the CDC has reported the flu to be particularly ailing.
As a reminder: children should be kept home if they have a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting. They must be free from symptoms for 24 hours without fever reducing medication before they can return to school. If your child has a persistent cough that has lasted for longer than a week, we may need to see a doctor’s note to ensure the cough is not contagious.
Christmas Basket Update
Our Christmas basket auction was a big success. Thank you to our families that donated and our auction winners! We were able to raise $1,065 for the Preschool. Thank you for your Support!
