Early Registration packets for the 2018 - 2019 school year went home to all of our returning families on February 23. They are due back to school by March 23 in order to take advantage of the discounted rate.
Kindergarten Registration begins March 12 in the school office. It is important for our future planning to let us know if you, your family, or your neighbors have an incoming kindergartener. Help us spread the word about registration. If you have any questions, please call the office at 708-385-6747.
As always, we owe our Parent Group a big "thank you" for all the hard work they do for us through the year. Don't forget that all parents are members of the Parent Group. We invite you to join us for our next meeting on March 7 at 9:30 am.
We want to remind parents that the school day begins at 8:20 am. Students who are late getting to class are missing out on valuable instruction. When the weather is bad, we allow students to enter the building beginning at 8:05 so that parents can drop their children off at the usual time.
We have a safety tip from the bus company that might be helpful for all parents to know. When adjusting you child's backpack, you will notice that the excess strap hangs loosely for the bottom. That part of the strap can get caught in the doors of the bus or the car as they close. Cutting that extra part off can reduce the chances that your child could get caught in the door as the vehicle pulls away.
We look forward another great year at Kolmar. By working together with our parents, we can ensure positive academic success for all students.
Please use the 24-hour attendance line (708-385-6747) to call in an absence for your children.
If your phone number or emergency contacts have changed since registration, send a note to the school office so we can update your records, helping us to better serve your needs.
If your phone number is not accurate, you will not receive the automatic school closing calls in case of extreme weather conditions.
