Reminder about COVID Procedures

From the Office:
Parents & Guardians, please wear face coverings during arrival and dismissal. The PA Dept of Health Order includes outdoor spaces, when distancing may not be able to be maintained.  Staff may ask for you to slide your mask down, so we can identify you before releasing your child.

From the Health Office:
Please monitor your child/children for symptoms of covid prior to coming to school every day.  The list of symptoms were sent home on the first day in the health packet and are linked below. If your child has any of these symptoms, do not send them to school until discussing this with the nurse. Siblings who do not have symptoms but live in the same house must also stay home. All students who have symptoms must be cleared by a doctor before returning.

Also, please note that all students must be wearing a mask before getting on a bus. It is a good idea to keep several spare masks in your child's backpack.

School Supplies at College Square

For the 2020-21 school year, the College Square PTO will be providing school supplies for all students (hybrid students and full virtual.) This is possible because of the amazing fundraising efforts during the last school year. Thank you to everyone who participated last year.

Due to the varying individual preferences of each student and family, please send in either headphones or earbuds to plug into an iPad (not air buds or bluetooth) that will best suit your student. These will remain at school to be used during the in-school hybrid days. It is optional for full virtual families to purchase this item.  Please label these with your child's name.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please feel free to contact to our  principal, Dr. Hiles.

For those who have asked about donating to the PTO for this project, below is a link to the College Square PTO's paypal. We look forward to supporting the College Square teachers and staff and looking for unique and different ways to stay involved with our students this upcoming year. We will be posting information about our upcoming PTO meeting on the College Square website and our PTO Facebook group page.

Thank You to Our Community Supporters!

7-Eleven
Thanks to a generous grant from our local 7-Eleven, we were able to purchase character education and behavior intervention materials.  The Social Thinking curriculum will be used with all of our Kindergarten Students.  Additional Social Thinking and Flexible Thinking materials will be used in small group interventions, K-2.

Buddy Bench
Thanks to PTO and College Square parent leadership and generous financial support from community business and private family donations, we have been able to purchase a replacement Buddy Bench for our playground!  To foster friendship and communication skills, students who need a friend to play with on the playground can sit on the Buddy Bench.  Peers are quick to invite them to play with them.
 
The project was funded by almost 20 small businesses and friends and families of the school.  Our appreciation to Keystone Ridge Designs in Butler, PA, for providing the bench at a reduced price to help to support this project at our school!
