DAILY ROUTINE

 

SCHOOL BEGINS AT 8:30 and DISMISSES at 3:30

 

LUNCH    

Lunch is served to the fourth grade at 12:05 p.m.  Students are given two lunch choices most days.  Students with cold lunch may also purchase just milk here at school.  A new lunch menu will come home before the start of each month.

 

SNACK

          Because the morning is so long and students definitely need a break, it is part of our morning routine to give students 10 – 15 minutes to have a snack.  This not only gives them a brain break, but allows them to refuel their body with much needed energy. 

Please send a small snack with your child to eat for our mid-morning break.

Recommended snacks are crackers, cheese, unsweetened dried fruits, fresh or canned fruit, veggies, boiled eggs, ½ a sandwich, nuts, yogurt, bagels, muffins, pretzels, etc.  Desserts such as puddings, chocolate of any kind, chocolate covered granola bars, candy, chips and other junk foods are NOT recommended.  A good rule of thumb is that a healthy snack needs more protein than sugar.

Please also consider sending healthy snacks as a birthday treats. Snack is not a substitute for a well-balanced breakfast.  Hungry children do not usually feel well and this can help the problem of kids going home early.

          Students may also bring a water bottle with them to have water at their workspace.  Hydration is essential to optimal brain function, but remind students to regularly bring these bottles home to be washed. 

 

 

 

MEDICATION

          It is a Rockford Public Schools policy that ALL medications come with written permission for their distribution.  A student cannot be given medication, prescription or otherwise, without a written note.  Medications must always come in their original container or they will not be distributed.

 

CHANGES IN ROUTINE

          Any changes in your child’s daily routine must be documented in a written form.  For example, if your child usually rides the bus home but you need to pick him/her up instead, we will put them on the bus if we do not have a note.
