2016-2017 Breakfast in the Classroom Parent Information

2016-17 School Year, Instead of doing breakfast club in the cafeteria, we will be doing breakfast in the classroom (BIC).  This model has shown much success at other schools in the district.  Because of the success at other schools, the district will be moving towards BIC at the elementary level district-wide.  This gives every child a chance to eat, it eliminates milk fees and has other benefits.  The arrival time will be 8:05 for all students that are not in BASICS or riding the bus.  This change is why we are starting to communicate about this now so you will have an opportunity to make before school arrangements before school starts in September.

Please read the attached for more information.

NO PETS ON SCHOOL GROUNDS PLEASE!
As the summer winds down and we're spending the last of our "good weather days" outside, it's tempting to bring our pets along with us to pick up kids from school. But please be advised that it's against Janesville City Ordinances to have a "dog, horse, cat or other animal pet on any playground or school ground at any time... This regulation applies whether the pet is running at large or is on a leash, or otherwise under the control of any person." Please help us keep our students (and their parents!) feeling safe, secure and comfortable while at school. We appreciate your support in this matter!
