Room 9 news

January 15, 2020

Dear Parents of Room 9,


Happy New Year! We are quickly approaching the halfway mark of the school year. Isn't that hard to believe? I know many of you are preparing to celebrate the Lunar New Year. If you do celebrate it, this is a great opportunity to talk to your child about your family traditions surrounding this holiday. 

Many of our children are coming to school with lots of germs. We are asking all the children to be "Germ Busters" by keeping their hands clean, sneezing and coughing into their elbows, and keeping their noses clean with tissues. Please help your child maintain these good hygiene habits at home so they can be independently successful at school. Also, please remember that if you child is running a fever, they need to be fever-free for 24 hours before they return to school. Let's all be Germ Busters!!

I hope you all are staying as healthy as you can. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.


Mrs. Otsuji
