Welcome back Callahan Families!!

We are a little over a week away from returning to the 2015-2016 school year and we eagerly await the arrival our students. Our teachers have been working hard to prepare their rooms all summer long and are exciting to start up again. Just a few things to keep in mind to help with the first few days:

School Starts on Monday, August 31, 2015

Parent Drop Off and Parent Pick Up-Please be aware that if you plan on dropping your child off at school that it can be done from 8:25-8:40 in the front of the school. The back parking lot is reserved for buses only during these hours. If your child is going to be a parent pick up on the first day, please send a note in to his or her teacher telling us the student name and who will be picking your child up. Please make sure that the person picking your child up understands that they will need a picture ID in order for the school to release the child to them. The person picking your child up will need to park in the front of the school and enter though the main office. They will be allowed in at 2:55 and ID’s and signatures will need to be completed before the child is released to the adult. Thank you for complying with our procedures that are put in place for the safety of all of our students!

Walkers- If your child will be walking home after school; we need a note on the first day of school telling us the student name and the address they are walking to. They will sign out every day at the end of the day. Even if your child was a walker last year, we need a note this year.

School Supplies List- Please see the attached (they are also on the Callahan school website (http://callahan.bsd-ri.net/parent-info/student-supply-lists) supply lists for your child’s grade.

Summer reading- Please make sure your child has completed the required summer reading that went home at the end of the school year. If your child responded on the blog, than there is nothing else for them to do. If they responded on paper, please make sure they are ready to hand in on the first day of school.

Summer Math- Please make sure your child has brought in their Summer Reflex Math sheet (Grades 3, 4, & 5 only). They will be collected on the first day of school.

Open House-Callahan’s Open House will take place on Wednesday, September 9,2015 from 6-8PM. There will be a more detailed flyer coming home soon.
