Newland Food and Treat Policy
** PLEASE NOTE ** NEW POLICY
With the start of the 2015-2016 School Year, food and treats for birthdays, holidays, and other events will no longer be permitted at Newland. Due to an increasing number of students with a variety of allergy related food issues, the interruption in classroom instructional time, and aligning with a greater focus on Health & Wellness, food for student birthdays, holidays, and other events will NOT be permitted to be brought to school. This means:
Please DO NOT bring cupcakes, cookies, or other food items to celebrate your child's birthday or other events, including store bought items. If you are hoping to do something to have your child's birthday or other events recognized in class, you must check with the teacher at least 48 hours in advance. Please note, nothing is required to be done for student birthdays. If a student elects do something, it must be cleared with the teacher in advance could include the following appropriate ideas:
Thank You for your support with this policy change.
Back to School Information
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. I am extremely excited to be returning to Newland Elementary for what I know will be a fantastic year! The faculty and staff at Newland are dedicated to creating a safe and orderly learning environment where each student may achieve to the highest ability. It is our goal to work in partnership with the community and parents to produce students who will be well educated citizens of our future communities. Cooperation and communication between the school and home play a major part of any child’s success, so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We hope this will be an enjoyable, positive and productive year for your child. Once again, I'd like to welcome you to Newland for the 2015 – 2016 year. I, along with the entire staff, am eagerly looking forward to what is sure to be a wonderful year.
