It was great to see so many of you last evening! I trust you found the event informative and you have a clearer understanding of what your child(ren) experiences during the day at Waters. All syllabi are posted on the school website if you would like to review any copies.
I saw many of you talking with Mr. Mark Williams, our lunchroom manager, at Curriculum Night. He had a table set up with snacks and was on hand to answer questions regarding our cafeteria offerings here at Waters. Did you know that breakfast and lunch is free for your child? There are many healthy options for your child to choose from. Any child may select one of two options when they enter school in the morning for breakfast and there are a variety of lunch options as well. Additionally, you can fill your lunch by adding a milk, veggie, and a fruit to a lunch a student has brought from home. We are happy to have Mr. Williams on our team. If you have any questions for him, please email him at <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I can’t believe we are in the final week of September already! That being said September is “Safety Month” and we practice our safety drills. Safety drills include but are not limited to fire, bus evacuation, lockdown, shelter in place, tornado, and allergen drills. This is standard procedure for all CPS schools and our staff does a great job at explaining each scenario to the children. Please be aware that most drills are practiced throughout the school year.
If you have not done so already, please turn in your medical forms to the school. If you child is not in compliance by October 15, 2018, they will be excluded from school until you provide the medical documentation.
If you have a doctor’s appointment scheduled, please have the doctor’s office fax (773.534.5087) or email the appointment information to your child’s teacher.

Thank you for your patience while waiting for your volunteer approval emails. This process is new for all of us! We are grateful for all the volunteers that have registered. Please be sure to spread the word that all parents must be approved as volunteers before they are permitted to participate in any school trips. The first step is to apply online at cpsvolunteers.org.
Have a great week!
