**ATTENTION CAHILL PARENTS**
Teachers will post on their Google Classroom, when your child's materials & supplies are ready for pick up. As we have done in the past, please drive through the bus circle and let the door monitor know who you are here to pick up for. We will bring the items out to you.

Dear Cahill Families:
As we plan to return to a Hybrid Model on Monday, I want to remind parents of the importance of a daily routine. Whether students are physically in school or at home remote, they need to have a schedule for their schooling. Children should have a specific time to go to bed and a time to awake each morning. Getting up, brushing teeth, and getting dressed are all part of a routine that we partake in whether our day is school or work. Breakfast should occur before the first class begins. In school, students report to their classroom by 9 AM. By 9:20, learning should begin.
With remote learning we have experienced a significant number of students who have not engaged with their teacher. Please help your child, as best you are able, to engage with their school work. Please reach out to your child’s teacher, or our school social worker, Ms. Laura Wild, if we can be of assistance. We are here to help families during this unprecedented time in history, please call us if you need to.
Our character trait for January is “RESPONSIBILITY”. If you have driven by Cahill you may have noticed our sign says:
As parents, we begin teaching responsibility to our children at a very young age. Once children enter school they typically know, for example, that we put things away when we are done using them, or we help with household chores. School attendance and work are another responsibility. Of course, the younger the student is, the more the responsibility is for the parent. If this is the case, parental expectations for their child are important. I want to thank all of the parents who are following up with their child’s teacher and having the expectation that schoolwork is important.
Our Lifetouch pictures which were re-scheduled for January, have once again been rescheduled. We will have our picture days on Tuesday, February 16th and Thursday, February 18th. If your child is fully remote, they will be scheduled by appointment only. Please call Mrs. Vines in the main office (247-6800 ext. 4701) no later than Thursday, February 11th to schedule your appointment.
A reminder that both breakfast and lunch are FREE to all students. Please utilize this program during these difficult times. Having raised all boys, I know how expensive the food bills can be. It can surely help all families to know that they are covered for a healthy breakfast and a healthy lunch while their child is in school. For families who are remote, you are also encouraged to take advantage of this program. Our school district wants to help as many families as possible. Please call myself or Mrs. Melville, our District Cafeteria Manager, should you have any questions.
I hope everyone has a healthy and happy 2021!
Very truly yours,
Dawn Scannapieco, Principal
