Owl’s Crossing Preschool October 2020 Newsletter
We are off to a great start!
It’s great to be back in school! The children are settling in nicely and making new friends. We will begin the Drop Off/Pick Up as soon as the painters remove their equipment from the side of the building. At that time, we will provide you with a color-coded paper plate for your car window. We will also send home another copy of the Drop Off/Pick Up Procedure. Please share the Drop Off/Pick Up Procedure with anyone that may bring or pick up your child.
Traditionally, we do individual and class photos in October. We hope to do them in the spring. Stay tuned!
