PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES

We will be having parent-teacher conferences October 16th-20th with evening hours available on Tuesday, October 17th and Thursday, October 19th. Please remember that these meetings are scheduled back to back, it is very important that you show up on time in order to keep everything on schedule. If you have to reschedule your conference please understand that spaces will be limited.

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

With cooler weather, it's important to make sure your child is dressed appropriately. We will go outside to recess each day unless it is raining, snowing heavily, or extremely cold. Please check the weather report daily to help your child make appropriate choices in what to wear.

DONUTS WITH DAD

Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 5th and Friday, October 6th.  We will begin at 8am and will be finishing up before students arrive on the bus. Please do not send your child on the bus if you plan to attend. Dads, grandfathers, uncles or any other special male person are encouraged to join your student for breakfast at MME before school. Please RSVP to the event so we have an accurate head count.

COAT STORAGE

With cooler weather approaching we tend to see an increase in the spread of head lice. We encourage students store coats, hats and gloves in their book bags during school. Also, please remind your student not to share hats or coats with other students. It is a good idea to check your child at home on a regular basis. If you would like the nurse to check at school please notify us. 

SCHOOL DELAYS SCHOOL AND BUS SCHEDULE

It seems early in the year to discuss weather delays, however, we have already experienced our first 2 hour delay. Our weather can change quickly as we move into fall and winter. If the delay is 2 hours, school will begin at 10:50am. Students should not come to school before 10:50am. If your child rides a bus, the pick-up time will be delayed by 2 hours. For example, if your child's bus comes at 8:35 on a normal day, it will arrive at 10:35 on a day we have a 2 hour delay. On 2 hour delay days, we will not serve breakfast. Our lunch will begin serving at 11:15, our regular time for Kindergarten. We again encourage everyone to register for the text message alerts. It is the most convenient notification concerning delays, closings and other events at Mayflower Mill Elementary. The TSC web page is also a fast way to learn about school delays and closings.

TEXT ALERTS AND NOTIFICATIONS
With the launch of the new TSC websites, the TSC and each of its schools will be transitioning away from Pinwheel for SMS (text) alerts and notifications and will instead utilize the communication options available within the new website. Parents/guardians, staff, and students can sign in to the website and register to receive alerts, calendar reminders, athletic updates, and more.

Parents/guardians must have an active PowerSchool Parent Portal account with an accurate email address in order to sign in to the website. To sign in for the first time, parents/guardians will click the "Forgot Username or Password" option on the website login page, then enter the email address that is associated with their PowerSchool Parent Portal account. Parents/guardians will then be able to reset the password for their website account, then add a cell phone number and register for SMS (text) alerts.

TSC students and staff will sign in to the website with their TSC username and password. Click here for step by step directions. Please contact the TSC Technology Department with any questions regarding this process by email or by phone at 765-269-8060.

A REMINDER FROM THE NURSE

Please do not send your child to school if they have had a temperature over 100, vomiting, or diarrhea in the last 24 hours. If a student is sent home from school for fever, vomiting or diarrhea they will be out the following day as well. Students CANNOT bring medicine to school.  All medicines & inhalers have to be brought to school BY THE PARENT. Cough drops CANNOT be sent to school either. If your child has borrowed a change of clothes please wash and return them as soon as possible.

SAFETY DRILLS

You may hear your student talk about the different safety drills we do here at school. Each month we will do a fire drill. We will also practice tornado drills, earthquake drills, lockout and lock-down drills throughout the school year. We practice these scenarios so each student will know what to do if we were ever faced with the "real deal". In the event of a real lock-down or lockout, please understand that only law enforcement can enter or exit our building. We realize that calling the school to ask questions is your natural reaction but please refrain from calling the school. We receive our information via phone and need to keep our lines open to communicate with central office or law enforcement officers. The best way to find out information during these situations is by being signed up for the text message alerts. We recently sent home directions with every students on how to sign up for these alerts. These directions can also be found in this newsletter and also on the TSC website.
