    ROUTINES & POLICIES:

     

    • WHAT TO BRING TO FUTURA:  Easy to remember: Just bring your Futura Folder (Fourth grade students will be given one on the first day.) Students who were in FUTURA last year should bring their binders (Please take out all the papers from last year at home). 
    • LUNCH:  Students will eat with their class at their scheduled time. 
    • MEDICATIONS:  Parents can give a medication to our school nurse. The nurse will notify me if students are on a health plan. 
    • ELECTRONIC ITEMS:  For students who have cell phones or other electronic devices in addition to school issued computers, they may leave them in their home classroom. They may only use electronic devices when the teacher has approved the use for an educational purpose. It may NOT be taken out at any other time. If there is a special circumstance where your child needs to have a device at all times, just let me know.
