Looking Ahead:

Nov. 9th-Lunch & Learn



  • Today Wyoming Fire Department came for Fire Safety Week. They observed and timed our fire drill, talked to us about fire safety, showed us firefighter apparatus, and let us climb into the ladder truck! We sang our fire safety songs to them (Hurry, Hurry Drive the Fire Truck; and Stop, Drop and Roll!). Ask your child about it (see pictures below)! A few things they talked to the kids about …
    • make sure your home has working smoke detectors
    • Set up a family meeting place and practice a home fire drill. They recommend a place near the street in front of your home so they can see that your family is out of the burning house.
    • smoke detector beep means get out and DO NOT go back in. The firefighters will go in to get what is left behind (i.e. pet).
    • how to call 9-1-1
    • how and when to stop, drop and roll
    • don’t hide from fire fighters – yell for help and go towards them
    • matches/lighters: don’t touch. Tell an adult
  • NO SCHOOL TOMORROW, Weds, 10/12.
  • Picture Day Thursday, 10/13. Remember to bring your picture order form and payment.
  • We need several more volunteers for the afternoon Halloween party (morning is filled). If you can help, please follow this link .
  • Health Notice: we have had a few cases of “Hand, Foot & Mouth” virus. Please watch your child for blisters (palms, soles of feet & in or surrounding mouth). A low grade fever is also sometimes present. Students with this virus need to be kept out of school until fever-free for 24 hours (with NO medications) and blisters are gone.
