INCLEMENT WEATHER NOTIFICATION
As we begin a season where there is the potential inclement weather and
hazardous road conditions, please remember that we will use Alert Now to notify
you of school closings. We monitor weather and road conditions very closely
and do our best to keep our families safe without unnecessary closing which
might result in make-up days later. We do not follow the county schedule
because our students to not use bus transportation. However, if you ever feel
that you do not feel safe driving, we fully approve of the right of parents to make
their own call about attendance on days like today, especially if you live far away.
In the event that we need to dismiss before tonight’s Student Council Movie
Game Night, we will notify you of a make up date, TBD. We will hold the money
paid and send out a new permission form, asking parents to approve of the new
date. Money will be returned to students who choose not to attend on the make
Records: State regulations require that all Capital Day students have a current
physical, a copy of a legal birth certificate and an up-to-date immunization record
on file at the school. You have two weeks to provide an updated immunization
record once it expires. If we do not receive the updated record after the two
weeks, you will receive a letter stating that your child is not allowed to return to
school until an updated immunization record is provided.
Sick Policy: Children who have had a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting should be
symptom free for 24 hours without medication (ibuprofen, acetaminophen,
imodium, etc.) before returning to school. If a child develops these symptoms
after arriving at school, the child will be isolated and the parent notified to pick up
the child. When children return to school, they will need to be able to follow the
daily routine with their class.
All students should be well enough to participate in recess and enrichment
classes before returning to school.
All students should be at school no later than 7:50 a.m. in order to have time to
prepare for the day, so please make every effort to have your child here on time.
Also keep in mind that the earliest students can arrive is 7:15 a.m.; there is no
supervision available before then.
The Holiday Sing is on December 9th at Western Hills High School. We will have
two performances with a 15 minute intermission in between. Having two
performances should help with crowd control, make more seats available, and
allow the younger kids to leave earlier.
Performance one is for Preschool through 1st grade, from 6:30-6:45 p.m.
Students need to arrive by 6:15 p.m. Performance two is for grades 2nd-8th, from
7:00-7:30 p.m. Students need to arrive by 6:45 p.m.
All students should wear something festive. The 5th grade class (only) should
wear a white blouse or shirt, and black pants or skirts. Middle school girls should
wear pants or leggings under a skirt.
We ask that the audience remain seated during student performances.
December 9th – Holiday Bake Sale: Student Council members have planned a
bake sale in conjunction with the Holiday Sing. A variety of baked goods will be
