    Things to Remember 

    • Staying healthy:  Please keep your child home when he or she is sick.   

    • Snack:  Please send in one healthy snack and drink each day that is packed separately from his or her lunch.  Include needed utensils, please.  Keep in mind that students only have 10 minutes or so for snack.

    • Lunch:  We will be eating lunch at 1:05 each day.  If your child would like to buy lunch, you will need to set up an account.  For more information, please click here.
    • Headphones:  Students will have opportunities to use IPads in the classroom to work on literacy and math concepts.  Please send a pair of headphones (IPad compatible, labeled, over the ear vs. earbuds are best) to remain at school for the year.  

    • Labels:  Please remember to label all items brought to school with your child's name (i.e. lunch box, sweatshirts, outdoor gear).  I encourage toys to remain at home.

    • Weather:  Please be mindful that we will be going outdoors often throughout the year.  It can be chilly in the morning so please dress your child accordingly.

    • Communication:  Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.  The best way to reach me is by email (hferreira@duxbury.k12.ma.us).  I check my email frequently and typically am able to respond within 24 hours if not sooner.  However, if you have an issue that is an emergency or time sensitive, please contact the main office.  

    • Birthdays:  We will celebrate your child's special day with the birthday song, a special birthday badge and pencil.  We are not able to distribute food, favors, invitations, etc. 
    • Class contact list:  Our homeroom parent will help us to create a class list during the fall.  More information to come!
    • Dismissal changes or absences:  Please use the dismissal form found on the Chandler homepage or in the Dismissal Notes tab on my teacher page.  If your child is absent, please fill out an Absence note found on the Chandler homepage as well or in the Absence Notes tab on my teacher page. 

      PLEASE NOTE:  

      If there will be an unexpected change in your child's typical dismissal schedule (after 9:30 that same day), I ask that you do not email this information.  I may not receive the message in time when I am busy teaching students.  Rather, please call the main office to notify us and the office staff will pass the information on to me.

    • Bus riders:  If your child rides the bus, please attach his or her bus ticket to the outside of his or her backpack.
