Updates from the Principal
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It is hard to believe that we will soon be back to our structured routines of fall! During the summer months, my family and I have enjoyed spending time traveling to visit family, taking our annual trip to Martha’s Vineyard, and reading and relaxing at home. I hope you have enjoyed the summer months with your family and that your children are as eager as we are to begin a new school year. The staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your children to make this a successful school year!
In the enclosed packet, you will find several letters with important information including the grade level supply lists. The Tashua Parent Handbook will soon be sent via email. Please be sure to carefully read through the handbook and to save a copy for yourself for future reference. In this handbook, you will find important information such as the school year calendar, our school hours on regular and early dismissal days, drop-off and pick-up procedures, information about how to report an absence as well as medical information from the nurse and other important information that will be helpful to you as you plan for the school year.
In addition, you will also be receiving another email asking you to complete your child’s online student information sheet and permanent dismissal plans. Please be sure to complete this form and submit it ASAP. If you haven’t received these two emails by Thursday, August 25th, please contact Barbara Jarosko at 203-452-4433 so we can update your email contact.
The first day of school is Thursday, September 1st. Students in grades K-5 will begin school at 8:35 AM and be will dismissed at 3:20 PM. Bus service to and from school will begin for all children on the first day of school. Be sure to view the bus schedule (available after 8/16) on the Trumbull Public School website at: www.trumbullps.org to locate your child’s bus stop and time. Please have your child at the stop at least five minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. Also, please be aware that the bus routes can run late the first few days, as the drivers become more familiar with their routes.
