Fine Arts Preschool Newsletter – January 2020
Happy New Year – We are so happy to have you with us in 2020!
We hope you had a very Happy Holiday! All Preschool classes resume on Monday, January 6th. You may have noticed that we have “Bring a Friend Week” coming up for our dance and music classes. We are unable to offer this for Preschool students because of the state-required paperwork. Please call or email us if you have any questions.
Preschool Closed: Preschool will be closed through Sunday, January 5th with Preschool resuming on Monday, January 6th.
Oak Creek Police Department Visit at Preschool: Will be announced soon: Students who do not attend Preschool on the morning it is held can still attend, but just for the presentation with an adult present.
Pajama Day: Just a reminder Tuesday, January 21st & Wednesday, January 22nd will be “Quiet Week.” Your child is welcome to wear pajamas on either/both days. Please be sure that your child wears pajamas that allow him or her to use the restroom independently (pajamas with feet). (Please no slippers, pillows, blankets, stuffed animals etc.) Students need to wear socks and shoes with their pajamas for safety reasons.
Friendly Reminders: Please make sure all students try to use the bathroom before class start time. A lot of students need to use the bathroom within the first 30 minutes of class. Our school starts at 9am. Please arrive on time so teachers can start teaching as soon as they get to school. Also, please make sure to only bring water and one or two healthy food items for snack.
Sick Policy: Remember if your child is sick and has a fever, they may not return to school for 24 hours to ensure they are no longer contagious.
Snow Days: APA will decide if we will remain open during a snow/ice storm. We use the Oak Creek School District’s verdict as a guideline. An email will be sent to all families by 3pm if we decide to close Monday-Friday or by 8am on Saturdays. To receive updates, weather closures, and delays, please opt in by texting ACADEMY to 77948. Even if you agreed to texts at registration, you still need to opt in using the instructions above. We will post on Fox 6, as well as on our Facebook page. Because this is completely out of our control, we cannot provide make-up lessons for each class, however, we will allow you to attend any group class the following week as a make-up. Please stop by the front desk to schedule.
Winter Boots: As the weather changes (or has changed) so will the student’s footwear! If your child wears winter boots to school, please bring a pair of shoes they can wear in class. Slippers and winter boots are not to be worn in the classroom.
Scholastic Book Orders: Order by January 15th. If you want to purchase any books through our Preschool you must order these online. Please go to https://clubs.scholastic.com/home to place your order today.
