Welcome to students and families! This is an exciting time of year. The teachers have been busy preparing the classrooms the last few weeks and are ready to begin the journey of guiding your children on the path to discovering the wonders of learning, creating, imagining and questioning, on their own and with their classmates.
A few important reminders as we begin the school year…
Please review the carpooling section of your 2019-20 Parent Handbook. Pick-Up Authorization Forms need to be filled out, signed and on file in the preschool office before a child will be released to anyone other than a parent or guardian. No child will be sent home with another person unless written notice has been given. If a teacher does not know the person picking up, she will ask for a photo ID. Please do not be offended, it is for your child’s safety.
Your child’s second tuition payment for the 2019-20 school year is due Monday, September 16th. Tuition checks may be placed in the “tuition” box outside the Preschool office or given to Melissa…please do not hand to teachers.
Lunch Bunch begins Monday, September 16th. Don’t forget to sign up! EPS is a nut/peanut free preschool. Please do not bring any items containing peanuts, peanut traces, or peanut oil in your lunches (READ THE PACKAGING LABELS CAREFULLY). In addition, we cannot allow candy in lunches as many types of candy are manufactured on equipment on which foods containing peanuts/tree nuts have been made. Enrichment classes begin Monday, September 23rd.
Lake Forest District 67 will be providing a free educational screening (to help parents identify developmental lags in their children) for preschool age children (3-5 years old) on Monday, September 16th. In order to participate, your child must be registered in advance. Please call Sheridan School at (847) 234-6294 to schedule an appointment.
Finally and most importantly, don’t forget to check your child’s class white board, located in the entryway of each classroom, for daily happenings! This information will assist you in discussing the day’s events and lessons learned with your child. Also each classroom teacher will be sending, via email a bi-monthly newsletter for your enjoyment. These newsletters will keep you informed of themes, activities, projects and special events taking place in class.
