Hello!

Thank you for turning in the permission slips for our CBI and Job Site locations. Students are expected to participate in all job sites and CBI activities as they are able. Obviously they will not be scheduled for something they aren’t able to do, but we do want them to gain as many experiences as possible to support their IEP goals and objectives as well as their independence. We have many great opportunities for our students! When the permissions slips started coming in today, I realized I should have worded it differently. A new permission slip will be coming home to those who may not have filled theirs out correctly. If you haven’t turned it in yet – please return in the new form which will be printed on colored paper. Please return this new permission slip on Monday, October 4, 2021. My apologies for the confusion. If you do not get a permission slip today – the one you turned in was fine!

Communication Folders – we have our blue communication folders set up and ready to go. This is a folder that will go back and forth between home and school. If your student is bringing something home, look for the blue folder with a lime green insert in their backpack. This makes things easier to spot and keeps things from getting too crumpled in their backpacks. Please remember to return it each time it comes home.

Backpacks – some of our students backpacks have to weigh over 20 pounds! Please make sure your son/daughter isn’t bringing anything unecessary to school. I think some students have the kitchen sink in there! They shouldn’t have to bring anything other than lunch and a water bottle and whatever device they want (phone, ipad, etc.) Everything else they need for school can be left at school and not carried back and forth.

Job Sites – we are hoping to start Oct 4th – so please turn those permission slips in! If you son/daughter has been absent – no worries, we will send it home when they return. Students will rotate through the different job sites each card marking. This will provide consistency yet allow the students to experience all of the sites throughout the year.

Upcoming Dates:

October 8 – Half Day – 11:30 Dismissal

October 13 – Late Start/First CBI outing

October 29 – Class Halloween Pizza Party – details to follow
