Just a Few Days Away

Hello everyone,

Just reaching out to say how excited we are about the fact that we will be starting school in just a few days!!  We will be opening our doors on Tuesday, September 3rd to "kick-off" our 2019-2020 school year!!  It was wonderful to see the happy faces of parents and children visiting our school for the Meet & Greets!!  Teachers have been so busy getting all of their last minute "to-do" lists completed in their classrooms.  BIG BIG NEWS:  LUNCH AT WA!! Windham Academy will be collaborating with Lunch Crunch Organics in Salem to offer students a "healthy" organic lunch... do any of you get tired of making school lunches??  I know I do!!!  I'm attaching the flyer from Lunch Crunch, a menu, and a FAQ sheet.  If you decide you'd like for your child to have a lunch delivered to school... you can order right on their website! Windham Bus Students Classroom teachers have been given the bus numbers for each of their students who may be taking the bus this year.  Be sure to reach out to them if you don't know the assigned bus number.  However, with that being said... we do not know the logistics/information regarding times and places of bus stops.  Please be sure to check out this site for more information: Our staff members will be there to greet our WA students when the buses arrive... please make sure your child knows that they will be getting off the bus at "WA"... maybe even give them a little index card with the words "Windham Academy" to hold as it will help us identify the new faces quickly when the buses arrive! Drop Off Procedure Car drop-off begins at 8:30am.  Staff will be outside to help this procedure run smoothly.  Please be patient the first few days as we will be working to set up a smooth process with safety foremost in our minds.  An important tip is to NOT let your child out of the car until they are in front of the school doors and a staff is there is assist them.  If you are waiting to enter our parking lot, please be mindful of our neighbor's parking lot and don't block the entrances.  *Parking in the cul-de-sac is not allowed (especially with the buses needing that area to make their turns). End-of-the-day Pick Up We will begin preparing students for dismissal at 2:30... Please do not come in to the building to get your child.  Just stay in your vehicle and we will notify your child's teacher that you are arriving.  We'll help them into your car.  Dismissal time runs until 3:00.  (Picking up after 3:00 is considered late pick-up and you will be charged) Discovery Morning Care This program will begin on Wednesday, September 4th.  If your child will be attending morning care this year, the cost is $8 a day.  Please fill out the attached form and email it back to us (or send it in with your child next week).  The time for morning care is 7:30-8:30am.  You will need to walk your child in through the front center door, and Discovery will meet in Mrs. Miville's fourth grade classroom.  She will check off your child's name and you will receive an invoice every 2 weeks. Boys & Girls Club After-School Program This after-school program will begin on our first day of school: Tuesday, September 3rd.  3:00-6:00pm.  Sign-ups for this program are done through the B&G Club and you can receive information for this by calling them at 603-898-7709 ext. 10 Looking forward to seeing our friends on Tuesday morning!! Have a wonderful, safe long weekend!! Mindy -- Melinda Labo, DirectorSuperintendent of SAU 401 Windham Academy Public Charter School Windham, NH  03087
