September Newsletter

August was a productive month at Little Friends Preschool. The children were happy to be back, meet their new Teacher, and learn the routine of their new Classroom. I hope you are all enjoying the work that the children are able to take home now.

Thank you parents for your continuous support during this contingency. We appreciate everything that you do to support the preschool.

FYI

Parents, we would like to remind you that at the preschool we are doing all of the precautionary measures to keep the children, families, and staff safe.

Mrs. Jessica, Mrs. Diana, and Mrs. Tanvi have been assigned the responsibility of disinfecting the classrooms furniture, Toys, and materials the children are using on a daily basis. In addition, the Teachers are cleaning all playground toys before the children go outside. While the quality of air is not good, the children will continue enjoying the improvised play area we have set up in the fellowship hall. This improvised area is also being sanitized after each class uses it.  The Climbing structure continues to be closed, but has been replaced with other fun Teacher organized activities and toys.

We continue to encourage students to bring their LABELED facial masks on a daily basis. We continue to encourage students to use their masks during indoor play and work time, since this is the time where students have the closest contact.

Postponed

Due to COVID-19 Back to school night has been postponed this year. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions about the class schedule, or your child’s behavioral or academic process.

Please mark your calendars:

Additionally, the photographers will not come near the students, I will be assisting the students during the shoot. It is not mandatory that your child takes the picture, please let me know if you do not want your child’s photography to be taken.
