Holiday Plans: At Halsey Schools we understand the importance of family togetherness. As a result, whenever possible we like to give our teachers special time to spend with their families. The Holiday Season provides an excellent opportunity to do so. In order to plan for this, we need your help. Please complete What are your Holiday Plans?
Hot Beverages: As the days and mornings become cooler, please remember to keep coffee and other hot beverages off campus. For safety reasons, there is no drinking of hot beverages allowed on any of Halsey Schools grounds, or on any Halsey Schools trips or other events. If you would like to drink hot beverages, please do so off campus or before coming in.
Sheets & Blankets: All children must have a sheet & blanket for nap time everyday. Please make sure to send a sheet & blanket at the start of the week. Please have your child’s name printed on them. Thank you!
Cold & Flu Season: We are now officially in the Cold & Flu Season. At Halsey Schools, we follow our written Illness Policy and written illness prevention procedures. We make every effort to assure your child contracts as few illnesses as possible. However, most children and adults will contract at least one illness between now and April. Remember to wash your child’s hands everyday before leaving school or any other social event.
