Julia's Garden Newsletter ?: Garden Day, Drop-Off Reminders, Toileting Talk and Farm to Fork on Sale this Week!
Greetings, JG Families!
Our 1st month of school is coming to a close. See below for important announcements and campus news!
Parking/Drop Off & Pick Up‼️
On September 30th the city is scheduled to complete their work on W. Milton, returning our pick-up/drop-off rotation to its previous routine. YAY!! Be on the lookout for an email this week from our Campus Manager alerting you of the change. In the meantime, please return to you cars promptly to make room for others to park in limited street spots. Save conversations with teachers and parents for another time and place and, please, do not converse in the streets. Thank you for making safe and respectful choices about when and where to catch up with community members after drop-off.
If you arrive late, avoid walking your child to his her/her classroom. Call or text the Campus Phone line so that a staff member can greet you child at the gate. We have an internal protocol that we kindly request be respected. If morning circumstances make it challenging to drop off at the gate, such as when you are brining items for your child’s class or you need to talk to someone, walk to the Hay House office and staff member will be happy to assist you.
