Dear Holman Families,

 

See you, in September………The air is getting a little crisper in the morning and the school supply and clothing ads and commercials are all over the television, newspapers, and Internet.  School is definitely back in session.   I would like to welcome all of you to our new 2014-2015 school year at the Lucy N. Holman Elementary School.  The First Day of School for all students will be Wednesday, September 3rd

The ELEMENTARY PORTAL opened on Monday, August 25th.  You may use your Portal Access Information to obtain student schedules.

Peanut Allergies:  Please note that there may be students in your child’s classroom who are severely allergic to tree nuts and peanuts.  Strict avoidance of tree nut and peanut products is the only way to prevent a severe allergic reaction.   We are asking your assistance in providing these students with a safe learning environment.  If exposed to tree nuts and peanuts, these students may develop a severe allergic reaction that requires immediate medical treatment.  To reduce the risk of exposure, the classroom will be tree nut and peanut free.  Please do not send any tree nut or peanut containing products to your child’s classroom during classroom celebrations or snack time.  Letters will be going home the first days of school regarding this matter should your child be in one of these classrooms.   To avoid any issues during the first few days of school, please send your child to school with a peanut-free snack to enjoy in his/her classroom.

 

Food Services:  The cafeteria will be serving breakfast once again this year starting on the first day of school, Wednesday, September 3.  Breakfast is served in the all-purpose room prior to the start of the school day.  Information regarding school lunch and food services can be found on the JSD webpage.  Students in EEK and Grades 1-5 are reminded to practice their Student ID# for lunch/snack purchases.  More information will be in the Holman Student Handbook and on the district and school web page.
